My 5 year old daughter Abby is at the age where she really likes to play with dolls. She also likes to play with her brothers’ toy guns and monster figures, so there’s a good balance. The dolls definitely have their place in her heart, though.
At the top of her list of favorite dolls are Barbies, naturally. It’s a typical girl thing. Barbie has changed a lot from when I was a kid, though, for the better. No longer is she just your typical doll. She can be and do anything.
She’s literally a rockstar.
We were sent the Barbie Build ‘n Play Super Star Stage from Mega Bloks to review. You should have seen Abby’s eyes as she saw the packaging. Not only is it Barbie, but she’s on a stage that lights up! With her friends! Singing!
Abby couldn’t wait to put it together.
I have to say, there are a lot of pieces to this set. 290 pieces, to be exact. It took awhile to put it together. This set is recommended for ages 5-10 and while I’m sure the 10 year olds may be able to put it together themselves, my 5 year old needed assistance. More like, I did it all as she paced impatiently.
Once it was together, however, she loved it! It was definitely worth the time it took, I just wanted to mention that it did take some time.
This set comes with Super Star Barbie, Raquelle and Teresa mini-fashion figures. It includes an elevator, 3 glittering block stands, set pieces, scaffolding, sparkling blocks and stairs, easy-to-access backstage area and television camera. The stage plays 1 of 4 Barbie songs with flashing lights, or you can play your own music and watch the lights react for a real concert experience. Suggested retail value is $59.99.
It’s everything your little girl would need to feel like she’s part of the band! Abby even likes to break out a toy microphone she already had and sing along with them.
