What It Is
MEGA Bloks Lil' Princess is a new construction theme targeted to preschool girls. The blocks in the Lil' Princess building sets feature bright colors and sparkly accents that help kids build and play out royal scenes. The 3-Story Enchanted Castle comes with 20 pieces that kids can use to build a palace for Princess Ivy and her pony, Chestnut. Accessories include two chairs, a table, a mirror, a bed, and food for Chestnut. The set also includes colorful stickers to decorate the castle. There is a spinning platform for Chestnut and a spinning balcony for Ivy so that both can dance the night away. Princess Ivy's tiara pops up whenever she is placed on a block or Chestnut. Chestnut features sparkly removable wings. The set comes with picture instructions on how to build the castle one way and then shows pictures both in the instructions and on the box of other ways to build. Kids can assemble the castle however they want and use this set with other MEGA Bloks Lil' Princess sets, which are sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
The new Lil' Princess line is a fun way for kids, though with a clear emphasis on classic girls' play, to build and imagine. The sparkly blocks are unique and add a touch of whimsy to the line. Kids will like that they can build and rebuild the castle in many different ways, creating their own unique enchanted castle and, of course, all the stories that go along with that.
Who It’s For
The MEGA Bloks Lil' Princess 3-Story Enchanted Castle is for ages 1–5.
What To Be Aware Of
It took us between 15 and 20 minutes to assemble the castle using the picture instructions provided. No matter how long it takes you to build, remember that building is part of the play.
