Last week my kids received a really cool toy to test out. A magnetic building toy called Malia’s Beach House. In this kit, by Build & Imagine, we found 16 dual-sided building panels, roof pieces, two characters and 40 magnetic accessories. I could tell right away this was a great toy for my kids.
My kids opened the box and started building right away. They found it really easy to create different types of houses. I could see that they enjoyed being the house designer and architect. They also loved dressing the characters and adding accessories in the house. I was impressed at how many different types of houses could be built. I also noticed that my kids kept going back to this building set day after day.
Why we love the Build & Imagine Malia’s Beach House:
- It has enough magnetic floor and wall pieces to build one large house or a two small houses.
- It comes with two characters to play with.
- It’s easy to build a house.
- The pieces are colourful and fun.
- It’s easy to store back in it’s original box.
- It can be challenging (build the next house taller… bigger… smaller…)
- It’s great for co-operative play.
I really like that Malia’s Beach House is not a pink play set. It’s characters are NOT princesses or fashionistas. They are REAL girls. Both my daughter and son love playing the architect when they take out this play-set. They also love creating stories with the houses they build.
Build & Imagine’s goal is to develop foundational skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), they’ve also added an art component making all Build & Imagine sets STEAM learning toys. I completely agree that this toy introduces all STEAM fields to my children. It’s no surprise that Build & Imagine sets have won several awards already. Dr. Toy, Parents’ Choice, The National Parenting Center, Mr. Dad have all rated it a top toy.
There are currently four Build & Imagine sets available. All four sets are different scenes. Build & Imagine sets are great for boys and girls. They are recommended for ages 4-8 (but I can bet my kids will play with it even longer than that!).
If you’re looking to introduce your child to a new building set that will keep your kids creative and entertained for hours, check out sets from Build & Imagine. My kids have already requested more Build & Imagine sets to play with. I strongly believe these sets make great birthday or Christmas gifts.
In Canada, you can find Build & Imagine sets on Amazon Canada.
