If there’s one thing my family loves it’s toys that are not only fun but educational as well. Whether it’s academic, imaginative or artistic . . . if the kids are learning something while playing then it’s definitely a hit with me. That’s why we have always been big fans of Build & Imagine.
What makes the Build & Imagine play-sets so different is that they’re magnetic. This means no extra small parts, no maneuvering to get the pieces to fit ‘just right’, no more frustrated kids. These solid plastic pieces are sturdy, brightly colored and connect with ease.
We received the Malia’s House set ($59.99) which came with 16 double-sided pieces which can be use to construct the house as well as 2 dolls and a sheet of magnetic stickers.
The bright and colorful the panels are as vibrant as always. When you place the magnetic accessories onto them you almost can’t tell which one is the magnet and which one is a part of the printed scenery.
Each piece has a different scene on both sides which give my kids even more creative options to their play. Of course, their favorite panel is the one where there’s a door that actually opens.
And since each side of the panel is magnetic that means there are pretty much countless ways to design your structure. It was interesting to see just how many ideas my girls could come up with.
And boy, are those magnetic sides strong. Definitely essential when building masterpieces. Nothing worse than trying to construct something that keeps falling apart.
However, the best part is how much fun my girls had. Not only did they have a blast coming up with different shaped play areas but once they were done they could now use the dolls and accessories to come up with their own storylines.
And now Build and Imagine also offers glow-in-the-dark dark magnetic stickers to add to the girls creations. What kid doesn’t love glow-in-the-dark?
I can tell that this is something that they won’t get bored with any time soon. In fact, they’ve been playing with their Build & Imagine play-set every single day since. And that’s saying a lot considering their bedroom looks like a “Toys R Us”.
