Toy Fair 2013: MEGA BLOKS’ Dancing Piano has come to rock your preschooler…


This article is more than 11 years old and may not have been updated since our last site redesign. It may contain outdated information or could be missing images.

Being The Rock Father, I’m big into toys that involve musical play. I might even go overboard at times (there’s more than a few preschool “guitars” here at Rock Father HQ), but I just can’t avoid it. With the American International Toy Fair going on in New York right now, there’s a lot more musical toys being revealed, and a new spin comes courtesy of MEGA BLOKS and their FIRST BUILDERS line. Check out the BILLY BEATS DANCING PIANO below…

From the press release: “The Mega Bloks Billy Beats Dancing Piano introduces little builders to the fun and joy of creating their very own music. Poised to be the star of the Mega Bloks First Builders line-up for Fall 2013, Billy Beats dances to the beat of 8 different pre-programmed songs or those composed by the budding musician. Billy Beat’s colorful light-up keys help teach children to play by following along, and kids will love the piano, wacky DJ and cute animal sounds. As part of the Mega Bloks First Builders system, Billy Beats offers plenty of building opportunities on his keys and “cap”, and moms PARENTS will love the built-in storage for the included blocks. “

Yes, I struck out “moms” in favor of “parents,” and will continue to do so on materials from any toymaker that’s not being inclusive in their marketing. Moms and Dads alike enjoy playing with their children.  At least this guy gets it:

“This year, we’re introducing lights and sound to our Mega Bloks First Builders line. Our new Billy Beats Dancing Piano brings together the fun of building and music, and provides a wonderful opportunity for parents and kids to build, play and dance together.”Vic Bertrand, Chief Innovation Officer at MEGA Brands

I dig that MEGA BLOKS is combining music play and building play.
