I can not show you a completed Mega Bloks Barbie® Build ‘n Style Luxury Mansion that we put together because two weeks after getting it, my 6 year old determined to do every single piece herself, we are still working on it! This is the FIRST EVER Barbie building collection!
This thing ROCKS!
My daughter, Katie, has taken this 300 piece project on and she is focused, determined and learning every single day as she builds a new room, puts a piece of the house on and adds the accessories. I love this thing and it is one of my Top Ten Toys for Christmas this year, hands down!
This toy is EDUCATIONAL!
The Build ‘n Style Luxury Mansion offers more than just a house my daughter can build. With it’s large, colorful instructions she is learning how to follow step by step. She is using deductive reasoning to anticipate what is next and she is following them down to every last detail. In addition, because it takes her a while to find the pieces, read the instructions, build a room and get all of the accessories together, she is learning patience. I love that she is proud of herself after spending hours on the bathroom and finally completing it!
This toy instills PRIDE!
Now, if I stepped in could we have this house built in a day? Probably. But the whole point of it is to let it be hers. To let her open a package with pieces, use her reading and awareness skills to take 30 pieces and turn it into a room that the two dolls that come with it can enjoy. In addition, it is a project that lasts for her. Because once she is done with a room she can redecorate it, rearrange it and even change it’s location in the house itself.
This toy promotes CREATIVITY!
Though my other two daugthers are too young to really understand it all, they do get in there and put pieces together and play with their sister. This house has brought me more peace in this house in the last few months that anything else. In fact, when my 6 year old gets home from school, she goes straight to the table we are building it on and gets to work.
This toy teaches PATIENCE!
The house comes complete with:
- Eight buildable rooms to design and decorate!
- A Real working elevator
- Glam accessories for endless design and decoration possibilities
- Includes Fab Girl ™ Barbie® and Teresa® mini-fashion figures each with extra outfits they can share!
- Combines with all Mega Bloks Barbie® playsets to build a fabulous world of fashion, friends and fun!
You can pick up this awesome toy that can give your daughter so much more back online or at your local retailer starting December 12, 2012. If you get it and don’t love it, I will be SHOCKED! It promotes everything you want your daughter’s to have! Confidence, patience, creativity, education and FUN!
