I recently received the Mega Bloks Barbie Build ‘n Play Luxe Camper and thought it would be great as an afternoon project for my 5-year-old daughter, and she loved it. All of the pieces (305 to be exact) were nicely packaged in separate bags making the pieces easy to organize. The building instructions were great, the color-coded parts made the directions easy for my daughter to follow as she was building.
All the little extras sets; the pool, table, chair, campfire, and scooter were all easy enough for her to put together herself. However, I had to stay with her while building because she had difficulty getting some pieces to stay on, they just didn’t click together easily. The smaller building pieces on the camper were the most difficult for her. It turned into a project for both of us that took a solid two hours to complete. I am not sure that a 4-5-year-old would be able to build this set completely by themselves. However, the finished product is amazing.
The Barbie Camper is sturdy enough to actually stay together while she (and her two-year-old sister) plays with it. There are enough extras to keep the set fun to play with for a long time. My daughter’s favorite part is the bunk beds in the camper and the Barbie hair and make-up table. The stickers and extra flowers and bows to add at the end allow for creativity and little changes during future play, which keeps my girls interested in toys longer…always a bonus!
This was our first experience with a Mega Bloks Build n’ Playset and turned out to be a huge success. My daughter was able to put together a toy sturdy enough to play with and the entire set turned out as it appears on the box. We will definitely be buying more of these sets!
