We are huge fans of GoldieBlox in our hours. BOTH of my kids love creating things with the various sets they have so we were thrilled when we saw they have THREE new sets!! As an added bonus for me one of the sets features building a zoetrope. A zoetrope!!!! I think mommy will be playing too. With them of course…or by myself.
GoldieBlox continues to encourage girls to build and create and use those skills that have until recently been geared towards men. I LOVE this about their company. My daughter is 4 and loves to build using blocks, LEGO bricks, Play Doh and of course GoldBlox. My son even loves playing and building with GoldBlox. It isn’t JUST for girls.
There are three new sets and I am so excited for each of them! They are:
GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine
GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine teaches kids how to make their own movies. A story + construction kit—in GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine, Goldie and her gang of friends team up to invent a solution and save the Bloxtown Film Festival from being canceled. Kids learn how to build a zoetrope, a pre-cinema animation device, while learning about illustration and animation. New characters + pieces! GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine introduces Li Gravity and Valentina Voltz, the series first male and Latina characters, as well as newly engineered pieces that are compatible with all GoldieBlox sets.
Zoetrope!! Enough said…I feel. This is one we are more excited about…by WE I mean the adults. My Diva’s favorite looks to be the one that features an actual doll of Goldie!
GoldieBlox Zipline Action Figure
For the first time ever, Goldie comes to life as an action figure! More than just a doll, her articulated shoulders, hips, knees and joints along with specially designed hands and feet are designed for action. With the included construction kit, kids learn how to build Goldie a 13′ zipline and send her soaring!
Ok the doll of Goldie is pretty neat but my favorite thing is she comes with a zip line. I didn’t think GoldieBlox could get any more awesome and then they do! If my kids were old enough they would probably Zip Line.
GoldieBlox and the Builder’s Survival Kit
GoldieBlox and the Builder’s Survival Kit is the ultimate expansion pack for the most adventurous innovator! With more than 190 pieces, GoldieBlox and the Builder’s Survival Kit offers hours of fun and endless possibilities. Goldie’s Diary of Inventions (included in the Builder’s Survival Kit), offers kids a wide-eyed perspective of Goldie’s world, her friends and family, and all of her secret inventions.
From budding engineers to master architects, GoldieBlox and the Builder’s Survival Kit gives inventors the freedom to chose their own difficulty level. With included prompts, kids can build simple and small or big and bold. Kids develop spatial skills through basic engineering principles while building their reading skills and confidence in problem solving.
This is one of the biggest and most impressive sets I have ever seen. It literally comes with so many possibilities and pieces that your kids (and you) will have HOURS of fun building and playing.
I can’t imagine a better gift for any girl…or boy for the Holidays this year. I know what my kids will be finding for Christmas!
