My Thoughts:

When my husband first out we were have girls, he thought his plans for playing soccer and building models and Mega Bloks kits would be out of the question.  It wasn't until Savannah arrived that he saw that we he can have the best of both worlds.  One day he would play tea party with her, and the next they were outside kicking around a soccer ball, or building things (only to knock them down).  When it comes to building blocks, we just love Mega Bloks products, as they are great for little hands, but also offer a variety of sets to keep young children engaged and entertained.  So, when I heard that Mega Bloks would be coming out with the new Mega Bloks Barbie line, I couldn't wait to see the sets and pick up a few for Savannah and my husband to enjoy making together. 

Even though the kits building sets were a little advanced for Savannah, the time spent with her Daddy, watching him put together the Barbie Build 'n Style Luxury Mansion and Build 'n Style Convertible, were priceless.  And, once he was done building both sets, they have enjoyed countless hours up in her room playing with them.  Savannah's favorite is the Build 'n Style Convertible, and brings it everywhere with her.  While I prepare her lunch in the afternoon, she likes to sit at the table and play with the car and swinging gates, as shown here:

Barbie products have come a long way since just the doll line that was available when I was little.  With the addition of this new line from Mega Bloks, I can see more little girls getting excited Barbie, as well as putting together these blok sets.  Who said bloks or building sets were just for boys?  Well, I guess they haven't seen these new products from Mega Bloks.  Just look at the luxury mansion and a few of the additional play sets that you can purchase and put together. 

Little girls will have a blast building their own Barbie community with each of the add on, like the pet shop, ice cream cart, fashion stand, etc.  And, each set is reasonably priced and will be enjoyed by girls for years to come.  I can see these new building sets from Mega Bloks as a product that will grow with my daughter. 

We only have the Barbie Build 'n Style Luxury Mansion and Build 'n Style Convertible right now, but I will be one of the first in line on Dec. 12th, when this new line debuts in stores.  I can't wait to see the look on Savannah's face when she sees the additional play sets under the tree.  And, her Daddy is excited about the "Daddy-Daughter" time ahead, as he puts together Savannah's own little Barbie world, for them both to enjoy.  So, if you are still looking for just the right gift to surprise your daughters with, why not consider products from the new Mega Bloks Barbie line?  You will definitely have one happy girl when she sees the play sets all put together.


Mega Bloks products are available for purchase at Toys R Us, Amazon and Target, Note, that this new line will not be available until Dec. 12th, but you can pre-order from these stores now.  You can also visit the Mega Bloks website to learn more about this new Barbie line -
