Spark Imaginative Play with Your Girls with Build & Imagine Playsets!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

My husband is an engineer and definitely thinks like an engineer in all facets of life...and therefore, he thinks our children will naturally be engineers too! :) So far, my oldest really shows signs of loving to "engineer" things, as he likes to say!

And my daughter got a chance to show off her budding engineering skills with the awesome Build & Imagine play-sets that are designed for girls and adds an important “A” for art to the vital fields of a STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math).

That’s the mission behind Build & Imagine, an empowering toy line for youngsters ages 4 and up that starts them on a road to innovation. Three magnetic construction sets are packed with foundational STEAM learning yet are enchanting for endless hours of imaginative play.

Each Build & Imagine StoryWalls play-set is made of colorfully illustrated magnetic panels that a child joins together any way she likes. The result is a scene that she brings to life with the enclosed dress-up dolls and more than 40 magnetic costumes and props. The illustrated details act as story starters, sparking imaginative play. Toy industry experts have taken notice including Dr. Toy, Parents’ Choice, The National Parenting Center, Mr. Dad and many others.

My favorite part about these play-sets is that they defy the "norm" for girls' toys. In other words, no princesses, ballerinas or fashionistas, whatever career that is. With these sets, my daughter gets to "build" and "engineer" just like Daddy and her brother! They get to play right along with her and she gets to be in charge! :)

Perhaps for the first time, young girls get to brace walls at angles, test the front door and work together with siblings to secure the roof. Since all sets are interchangeable, children collect additional sets to build bigger towers or design a town. With each new set come endless storytelling possibilities.

My daughter received the Day At The Beach set and it was instantly a hit! With this set, my children can build a scene and imagine countless stories...over and over again!

Emily and Lucas can’t wait for their day at the beach working at the surfside café & shop. Between running the café window, the surf shop register, and the lifeguard stand, there is always action to keep them busy. After the lunch rush, they catch a few waves to try out Emily's latest surfboard designs.

This set includes Emily and Lucas dolls, 10 illustrated building panels, and more than 40 action packed magnetic accessories.

Features a walk-up cafe window, surf shop double doors, lifeguard stand, surfboard workshop, food prep kitchen, cafe seating, surf scene, beach gear, rescue gear, outfits, tools, and yummy food!

My children had a blast building together and it makes for a great activity for a rainy day or a perfect activity for the upcoming winter months! Children can work together, imagine together, and build together - girl included! :)
