As a Mom to 4 boys, I know building toys! I have 4 little builders full of imagination and creativity. I’m thrilled to introduce Build & Imagine toys to you. From the Build & Imagine Malia’s Beach House to the Marine Rescue Center, these sets of buildable story walls are perfect for children of all ages. Maybe even some adults too! This set can be reconfigured and constructed in so many ways that you’re sure to fall in love.
Okay, let’s be honest. I love doll houses. However, most doll houses are geared towards ‘girl toys’ and chances of seeing a John Deer or Transformers doll house are slim to none. As an Occupational Therapist, I know the value doll houses and dolls have for imaginative play and role-playing. Role-playing helps children express feelings and work out problems and scenarios that they may not be able to achieve without props. I am so thrilled with Build & Imagine and love how they combine building with the idea of doll houses and really imaginative themes!

I don’t know about you, but I judge the quality of many toys by the weight. The first thing I noticed about these toys was the weight. When the box arrived in the mail I struggled to remember what I ordered and was thrilled to find out it was our Build & Imagine marine rescue center and pet portrait studio (below)! The “story walls” connect magnetically. Think magnetic building toys meets imagination explosion. That’s what you have here! They can be redesigned and reconfigured in many ways and adapted during play to fit the story and creativity of the builder.

Build & Imagine Malia’s beach house has been one of the most popular toys from their collection. Fond on the Build & Imagine website, “Malia’s House 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.” Pretty amazing, right?
Overall these toys are hot in my house. My newly turned 6 year old and 4 year old adore them! They do have many small pieces that I have to keep away from the baby and 2 year old. The blue bag I’m using above came from a Christmas ornament and is an amazing way to store them. The magnetic pieces stick to the walls and the characters alike!
The walls are held together magnetically and these sets can be combined and made into massive play sets. However, the magnets are not strong enough to pick this up and move it like the GeoSmart toys they use for building. So, we build and then put this away or built it on a surface we don’t mind leaving it on for awhile. Find their stock on Amazon and get them in two days with Prime!
