Build & Imagine . . . Day at the Beach

If there’s one thing my family loves it’s toys that are not only fun but educational as well. Weather 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 I was very interested in learning more about the magnetic play-sets by Build & Imagine.

What makes the Build & Imagine play-sets so different is that they’re magnetic. We received the Day at the Beach set ($49.99) which came with 6 square panels and 4 triangular ones as well as 2 dolls and 40+ magnetic accessories.

What I really liked is the way they were packaged into the box. There are slots which hold the panels perfectly for easy organizational storage. And since the pieces are flat, we can also just place them in a storage bag and take them to Grandma’s house.

I also noticed at how bright and colorful the panels were. 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. To add even more imaginative play, 2 of the panels have either a plastic double door or a window that actually opens.

Each side of each panel is magnetic which 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.



I couldn’t believe how long this play-set kept them occupied . . . and working together.

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”. :-)

    Thank you for this lovely review! I am glad to hear you are using the box for storage. We spent a little extra money on the pulp trays to make it easy to store.

    It is awesome to hear this: “I couldn’t believe how long this play-set kept them occupied . . . and working together.”

    Keep in touch!
