DAY 8: Develop STEM skills with Build & Imagine Play Sets ~ Pet Portrait Studio #12DaysOfGiveaways

Disclosure: We received products in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own! #MaliasBeachHouse #BuildAndImagine #PetPortraitStudio



When it comes to education, I am ALL for it. When my child gets to play AND learn, I know we've hit the jackpot! Introducing Build & Imagine Play sets... It's literally the perfect cross between building blocks, a dollhouse and magnetic dress-up dolls! We were sent the very popular, Malia's Beach House play set & The Career Dolls play set. We were also given the go-ahead to give away the Pet Portrait Studio Play set to (1) lucky winner. If you have never heard of Build & Imagine allow me to fill you in...


An awesome, award-winning toy designer and mother named Laurie, created Build & Imagine to get girls building in order to help them develop foundational STEM skills like spatial reasoning, design, and even problem solving. She took several play mechanics that she knew most girls loved and mashed them together in an innovative way. Along the way Laurie discovered that both girls and boys love her colorfully illustrated magnetic building sets, and that these budding builders were developing language skills alongside STEM skills as they whisper stories while they play.


I started playing with these play sets while Gabby was distracted with something else and I was actually pretty entertained! It's like a future Architect/ Home designer's mini dream. After about 15 minutes, my daughter realized what I was up to and decided to sit and help me recreate Different versions of Malia's Beach House while dressing up Malia's dear friends from the Career Dolls play set!


It's very hard to keep my daughter entertained if it isn't with a television program or something electronic. I was very surprised to see that she actually played with the play sets for a total of 1 hour! That's like a week in preschooler time! She truly loves being able to build, knock down, and re-build her houses and castles with the super easy magnetic tiles. She was even more excited for all the fashion choices there were for the career dolls. Whether she wanted to dress them up as Astronauts, Rockstars, Superheroes, or the President... Her heart was filled with happiness.
