For Matthew’s birthday he received a lot of Lego. I haven’t bought him any Lego before because he was never into it and never asked for it. The closest we ever got to Lego, was Mega Blocks and Lego Duplo. I am happy to help him out with everything as indeed I enjoy building these myself.
We recently got the opportunity to try out something completely new. Something that is Lego related and Matthew would enjoy playing with. Not too long ago Brick Live was on in Belfast. They demonstrated a new product called Mayka Toy Block Tape. It sounded cool so I thought “sure why not, let’s give this a go”.
Mayka Tape is made from premium, non-toxic silicon that’s non-marking, flexible and safe.
The tape is a whole new playing experience. It is compatible with any toy block brand such as Lego. There are several different colours and lengths you can pick up in store. We received a blue two metre tape. The tape can be cut to your liking. I decided to cut it in the middle so we can have two one metre ones. Once that’s done, take off the paper and stick it anywhere you want. I would advise not to stick it onto any painted surface in case it gets damaged. Plastic and glass are generally the best for these. Matthew wanted it on the floor in the play room though.
Now we come to the funky part. As it is so flexible, you don’t need to stick it in a straight line. You can lift it up every now and again to create waves/hills. It’s all about the creativity. Then it’s time to build. Lego original is probably the best to work with the tape but I figured it also works grand with Lego Duplo. Matthew created a little scene with a few figures and cars we put together the other day. He is great for his imagination.
I can see Matthew playing with this more and more if we had more Lego figures. That could be a task for Santa to take care of.
Mayka Toy Block Tape is available in all major toy stores such Smyths from €7.99.
