When I was a little girl I would play for hours upon hours with my doll house. I think at one point or another all children love to play house. Girls, of course, tend to lean towards doll houses.
I also used to love to build my own houses out of wooden blocks or plastic bricks.
Barbie has been a huge part of many people’s lives. I was a huge Barbie fan growing up, as was my daughter. Barbie always had the coolest clothes and accessories.
What if I told you that you can combine three fun things that little girls enjoy – houses, building and Barbie – all in one toy?
Introducing the Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build ‘n Style Luxury Mansion. I combines the fun of building and the playing with a house all into one great toy. Being a Barbie toy makes it even better!

I received the Luxury Mansion to review. WOW! Let me just say that there is A LOT of pieces. If your daughter or granddaughter is very anxious to set up and play with this toy you best prepare them ahead of time. This toy will take a while to put together. It’s not as simple as 1-2-3. There are A LOT of pieces.
The toy is recommended for 4 and up. That is because there are a lot of tiny pieces. I doubt a 5 year old can put this together by themselves. I’m 40’ish and I had a hard time putting it together. In fact the house is still a “work in progress”. I started it and I’m still trying to complete the first room (bathroom). The again kids often figure things out a lot quicker than us “old folk”.
I wanted so badly to have mansion completed to I can include that photo in my review. Sadly that is not going to happen. Like I said, it’s a work in progress. There are so many tiny pieces involved.
The toy is fun to put together. It’s a satisfying feeling when you get a little section completed. Plus its fun to see it take shape right before your eyes. Once you finish one piece it makes you want to quickly move on to the next one because it makes you anxious to see the completed project.
The detail is amazing! Right down to the teeny tiny slices of pepperoni on top of the slices of pizza.
Honestly, I cannot wait to have the whole house completed. I wish I had more time to dedicate to it, but in a way it’s fun. It’s like working on a puzzle bit by bit and then having the satisfaction of seeing it all completed.
The Mega Bloks Barbie Build N’ Style Luxury Mansion will be hitting stores on December 12 in North America and Spring 2013 internationally.
