KRE-O Cityville Invasion Marina Madness Building Set

Disclosure: We received a product. All opinions stated however, are genuine and my own.

Available at most major retailers or at the Hasbro Toy Shop.

My youngest child, happily, is one of those kids who uses his imagination (liberally).  He also loves to build. I was looking for the perfect gift for him, one that he hasn't asked for (I love to give presents I know people will love but they are not expecting!), and the KRE-O Cityville Invasion Marina Madness Building Set fits the bill.  I know he'll love the opportunity for the imaginative playtime that this toy presents, and he will flip for the moving pieces, yes building pieces that move (how cool is that???)!

Sonic Motion Brick with Sound
Motion Bricks allow Kreons to move!

I admit that I haven't heard of Zynga's mobile gaming app: KRE-O Cityville Invasion (I just liked the kit in and of itself), but it seems to be very popular, and that could be a definite added bonus if you're shopping for someone who uses/is a fan of the app.  There is also a special code inside that unlocks game content. With the (4) popular characters Ray Manta, Sgt. Splash, Dockhand Rusty, and Lt. Mari Time (lol, loving the names!), 206 building pieces,  a mystery figure, Sharktooth (the aquatic predator), a Sonic Motion brick, and (3) motion bricks, the kit has more than enough to keep the imagination busy.


When you are shopping for toys (and most of us are this time of year), it is important to look for quality. Everyone knows the HASBRO name, and there are good reasons for it: Their toys are top notch quality and kids love them!  Add in affordability, and that's a win-win-win in my book.

The KRE-O Cityville Invasion Marina Madness Building Set is fun, costs just under $20, and is definitely a most excellent gift idea for the upcoming holidays. It can be purchased at  most major retailers, and/or at the Hasbro Toy Shop online.

  13. We did a Kreo set over the summer and it took quite a while to set up. Then the boys decided it would be fun to leave pieces on the floor. Now Kreo and Legos are banned. :)
