I love finding out about new toy companies, especially when they focus on Girl STEM toys! Build & Imagine is an up and coming toy company founded by a women, Laurie Peterson, who saw a need for girls building toys. I was excited to get to check out the Malia’s Beach House Set.
Malia’s House is an award-winning magnetic dollhouse created by the “Rising Star Toy Inventor of the Year”. Build Malia’s House any way you like—illustrated shapes join magnetically. Then decorate the house and invent new stories with magnetic accessories that stick to the floors, walls, and dress-up dolls! Easily change things up and create a whole new adventure for endless imaginative play.
Malia’s House is a TOTY finalist and is the winner of Dr. Toy’s Best Classic Award, Parents’ Choice Gold Award, The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, and PAL’s Top Ten Toys of 2014.
At first glance inside the box I was impressed. All of the pieces are very sturdy. The colors and patterns of the pieces really pop! This toy is not cheaply made. It is built to stand up to little ones.
The creative possibilities are endless with this Build & Imagine set! It is so simple to snap the pieces together and mix and match to create rooms and build your own beach house. The dolls remind me of paper dolls that I had when I was little. When your little one is building with these they will never get bored. This will keep them busy for hours!
Plus because the tiles are magnetic you can get even more creative and attach other magnetic building toys to expand your creations.
This is a perfect gift for the 4-8 year old girl in your life, but older kids love it too!
You can find this great Build & Imagine Malia’s Beach House Set at Amazon and other big box retailers! Plus keep your eyes out for the other Build & Imagine Sets!
