Creative Fun with Build & Imagine Magnetic Play Sets

Every once in a while you come across a product like no other. A few years ago my kids were introduced to Malia’s Beach House from Build & Imagine. This is a fabulous house that you can easily assemble thanks to its magnetic StoryWalls. My kids were crazy about this play set from the moment they started testing it out. They still pull it out often and play with it for hours.

This holiday season we received three new sets from Build & Imagine: the Pet Portrait Studio, the Marine Rescue Center and the fun Draw & Build Dollhouse.

Pet Portrait Studio

The Pet Portrait Studio comes with 63 pieces. Included in the set are two wooden characters to play with (one boy and one girl), cats and dogs and tons of cool accessories to get these pets ready for fun photos. The StoryWalls have fun patterns and are very colourful.

Marine Rescue Center

The Marine Rescue Center comes with 48 pieces and one wooden character. We love this set because it can be assembled in a rescue center or a ship to save animals.

Draw & Build Dollhouse

The Draw & Build Dollhouse set is so great for my little artist. My daughter draws all the time so she was thrilled that she could draw on the StoryWalls and the wooden character. This set comes with 4 dry-erase markers, 4 square magnetic panels and 4 triangle panels. One of the panels has a funcional front door.

The best part is that these three sets can be combined and made into a HUGE house. My kids have assembled them side by side and have made their characters visit each other.

Build & Imagine sets are great STEM toys. They introduce spacial reasoning, problem solving, creativity and design. I absolutely love seeing what my kids will come up with every time they take out a Build & Imagine set.

Where to Buy

Build & Imagine sets are available on for US customers. Canadian customers can find sets on and Mastermind Toys. Some sets can be found in specialty toys stores across the country as well.

These magnetic sets are like nothing else I’ve ever seen. My kids play with these sets for hours. Their friends love them too and always ask to play with them when they come over.

I highly recommend any of the above mentioned Build & Imagine sets for gifts this holiday season. These are sets are a high-quality product that will bring hours of fun and imagination for your children.

  1. Definitely the pet portrait studio, my cousin loves getting new toys. I really think these are awesome gifts!

  2. My little girl would love the dollhouse. The way she collects little dollhouses I swear she’ll be a property developer when she grows up.
