As an educator, mom and now grandma I am always on the lookout for toys that will spark the girl’s imagination and creativity, promote their love of learning and exploration as well as just plain fun and Build & Imagine line of kits does all of that and more.
In my classroom and I home I see firsthand everyday the love of building that girls have as well as boys and when you give them something that is open-ended with no right or wrong way to put it together, the sky’s the limit and their inherent sense of exploration soars all under the guise of play and what better what to foster a love of becoming a life long learner than the art of play. The Build & Imagine Kits do all that and more and give your children a new world every time they play. I loved sitting back and watching what the girls were coming up with their Malia’s Beach House kit both together as well as independently. Built to last, both girls were able to create designs that matched their developmental level and yet allowed them to strive beyond.
Our kit came equipped with everything we needed so the girls could immediately start to build. The Dual-sided panels can be made into toy stores, hotels, or bakeries. The panels are magnetic and there is a functional door to help set the scene.
The Draw & Build Dollhouse blends popular craft and construction toy categories, and aims to get girls (and boys!) excited about building. Malia’s Beach House was in a sense dollhouse meets building blocks meets dress-up dolls in this innovative re-imagining of the classic dollhouse! Through play, Hailey and Lyssie are actually developing those early engineering skills by designing a beach house for dolls Malia and Skyler. The 61 Piece Magnetic Building Set includes 10 dual-sided square Story Wall building panels, 2 isosceles triangles, 2 right-angle triangles, 2 rectangles, 2 standing dress-up characters, and 43 magnetic accessories. Features a pool, functional door that opens, living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, outfits, pets, and much more!
We couldn’t agree more with the words of – Claire Green, President of Parents’ Choice Foundation when she said, “If they build it, they will play. The Draw & Build Dollhouse can be a house, a school, a hospital, an animal rescue center or …” in announcing that the Draw & Build Dollhouse won the Recommended Toy Award.
