TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Help Dora take care of her baby twin brother and sister with the Dora's Family Nursery building set. This 23-piece set lets girls build a nursery for Dora's siblings any way they want—tall, narrow, wide, two floors or one. The set comes with various nursery accessories, such as a rocking horse, a cradle, and a swing. There are also themed stickers that let girls decorate the nursery. Dora's Family Nursery comes with a Build & Dress Dora figure with two skirts, a baby brother figure, and a baby sister figure. The set is compatible with other MEGA Bloks World of Dora building sets.
Why It’s Fun
There aren't many construction sets out there for girls who like to build, and that inspire traditional doll and nurturing play, which is what makes these Dora building sets so great, in addition to the color pieces and creative options for building. Dora's Family Nursery is easy for little girls to put together, and it lets them build and play with a favorite character. There are many opportunities for girls to get creative, from building and decorating the nursery to playing out different adventures for Dora and her siblings.
Who It’s For
Dora's Family Nursery is for ages 3 and up. Dora the Explorer fans will like this set, but the set is also great for little girls who may not be huge Dora fans but who like to build.
What to Be Aware of
Because Dora's Family Nursery is part of the MEGA Bloks line of preschool building sets, the pieces are large enough for small hands to grasp and easy for small children to put together.
