I had the opportunity through MommyParties to host a Mega Bloks® Barbie® party. I was provided with the Mega Bloks products and I provided the food and entertainment. We had a great turn out and all the kids had tons of fun. Last night I spent 1 hour 45 minutes setting up the Mega Bloks Barbie Luxury Mansion so that the kids could enjoy it today. The house was a huge HIT!!
We had a draw for a Mega Bloks Barbie Pool for one lucky girl and every girl that attended received a Mega Bloks Barbie Build ‘n Style Kiosks. They couldn’t wait to start playing with their new toys. It was fun to see them get so excited.
The kind people at MommyParties also provided me with a packet with so great party ideas. For one of our snacks they suggested “Cup of Sand”. It contained Nilla wafers, vanilla pudding and a gummy fish, I added the umbrellas for an added touch of color. These tasted great and were so much fun.
As you can see we had a blast. Look at all these smiling faces.
My thoughts on the Mega Bloks Barbie line. The Mega Bloks Barbie Luxury Mansion came with a great set of step by step instructions that was easy to follow. The kit had over 300 pieces and took me an hour and forty-five minutes to put it all together (without my kids help. I feel it would have taken longer but would have been a lot of fun to build this with my kids). The set up included adding the stickers and building each section. The only complaint I have it the floors of the house slip out really easily and can get frustrating to my kids. I do understand this feature is to allow them to make the house to their liking, it just would be nice to not have it fall out so easy.
We also set up the Mega Bloks Barbie Build ‘n Style Fashion Stand and Ice cream Cart. Both came with great set of instructions and only took 5-10 minutes each to set up. Since the party my kids have been playing with their new Maga Bloks Barbie sets non-stop.
I’m impressed and I know my girls have other sets on their birthday wish lists. These toys are recommended for kids ages 4 and older. The younger kids might get a bit frustrated with the small pieces falling apart but I know the older girls at the party loved switching things up and making a new house.
