I received the press release below from my contact at MEGA Bloks. I think it is really cool and wanted to share the information. Here is a link to the first tour they did on July 23, 2013: Christmas in July.
Now, how can I get a tour?

MONTREAL – (July 23, 2013) –On Tuesday, July 23rd, MEGA Brands will launch North America’s Largest Toy Factory Tour Program at their headquarters located at 4505 Hickmore in Montreal, Quebec. The MEGA Brands team is proud to welcome the local Hochelaga Community Center Day Camp at their MEGA BLOKS toy factory for a fun-filled day of building, learning & fun.

ABOUT THE MEGA BLOKS FACTORY TOURS
MEGA is proud to showcase their facilities to young Montrealers through engaging and inspiring activities specifically customized for each age group. In addition to highlighting the magical wonders of a toy factory for younger kids, and walking through informational ‘how-it’s-made’ processes for older students, the tours will also highlight future professions that visitors can aspire to.
On top of visiting the areas where MEGA BLOKS toys are created from start to finish (in a factory that covers an area of over 15 football fields!), students will also have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with MEGA BLOKS toy experts and ask any and all questions they have about the toy industry. The MEGA BLOKS Factory Tours are a great way for students to learn about a local global business as well as the stages in the “life of a toy”.
