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.
Thanks so much for reviewing my new building sets!! This makes me happy to see 🙂

We absolutely love the set Laurie. Thanks for creating such a great toy!!
That looks like a great toy! My DD4 is doll obsessed!! I think that this would be so much fun to play with her!
Wow, this is a neat entrant into the toy market! I’ve never seen something like this targeted for girls. I love the building element. Very cool!
My daughter (and even my son) would love this! I like how it gives such creative control to the builder 🙂
this is such a cool toy idea! I would love for my daughter to get to build her own doll house!
this is such an adorable idea! I would love to have my daughter build her own doll house!
How cute! I love it that you actually get to build the doll house!
What a magnetic playset to play with! I love toys that have the kids use their imagination to play.
What a neat toy! I’ve never seen a magnetic house before but it;s a great idea. It’d be super for use while traveling.
Looks like a lot of fun! I’m sure that many will consider this beach house for the upcoming holidays.
It would make a GREAT holiday gift Jenna.
Love that this has ethnic diversity, too. My kids would normally shy away from magnetic playsets, but this one would definitely get them interested in imaginative play!
Agreed Dede! This is not your typical magnetic playset. It’s very sturdy and easy to use.
