Can you believe that Barbie recently celebrated her 53rd birthday? She’s been around forever and is still a favorite for young girls and doll collectors. Mega Bloks now offers Barbie play sets where Barbie is on the go and off to see the world! We received the MEGA BLOKS BARBIE™ BUILD ‘N PLAY LUXE CAMPER and it is perfect for kids who love to construct sets and play with small figurines. I encouraged my 6 1/2 year old to try to build the set on her own.
The Luxe Camper set is for kids ages 4-10. It includes 305 pieces to build a camper, picnic table, and other fun items and comes with two dolls- Barbie and her little sister Chelsea. My daughter spent roughly 45 minutes assembling the pieces. I did come to the rescue a few times when she couldn’t get the pieces to snap. The instruction manual is nicely illustrated and helped us sort through the various pieces. Some other instructions can be a nightmare but we didn’t have any issues following these.
She adorned the camper with the stickers included in the set and then she proudly showed off her creation. The stickers really add detail to the camper. We (yes, I played with her) loved swinging the camper doors open to reveal cute bunk beds, a station for her brush and comb and it comes equipped with lipstick. I appreciated the seat belts for Barbie and Chelsea! Safety is a priority even in Barbie’s world!
Playing with blocks isn’t just a boy thing. I love that girls are encouraged to build and play. Sure, the set is pink but that’s an added bonus for my daughter seeing that it’s her favorite color. Whether it’s a Barbie set or a non themed Mega Bloks set, both girls and boys can use their imagination, construct and rebuild!
