Malia’s House includes Malia and Skyler wooden dress-up dolls, 16 dual-sided StoryWall building panels (10 squares, 2 rectangles, 2 right-angle triangles, and 2 roof triangles), and 40 magnetic accessories. StoryWall panels and accessories in this set feature a pool, functional door that opens and closes, living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, outfits, pets and more.
No rules, no limits to what your child can dream up.
Kids aren’t limited to one design—they can quickly reconstruct Malia’s House into whatever design suits them. They can also change the context of their story with magnetic accessories that stick to the floors, walls, and dolls. Or, mix and match multiple play-sets to build a larger scene. All Build & Imagine play-sets are compatible, so your child can grow their story alongside their building skills.
Develops Foundational STEAM Skills
Build & Imagine’s construction plus storytelling combination bridges left and right brain play to engage kids in foundational S.T.E.A. M. skills (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Through building with geometric shapes children exercise early engineering skills including spatial reasoning, problem solving and design. The rich illustrations, characters, and magnetic props act as story prompts, sparking imaginative play that sets the stage for language and literacy learning.
The San Francisco Chronicle described Build & Imagine’s play-sets as “innovative toys that teach science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).”
Unlike a traditional bulky dollhouse, Build & Imagine StoryWalls stack flat, making our play-sets easy to transport and store.
Our StoryWall panels are made of virgin ABS plastic to keep the magnets safely encased. To make our products as safe as possible, we use ferrite block magnets, rather than small neodymium magnets. Our illustrations have a durable protective finish to ensure they continue to look new after months of play. The accompanying dolls are made of wood with a plastic base so they can standup in any scene, and the magnetic accessories are printed on 30mil flexible magnet sheets so you can stick them to the dolls and the faces of each StoryWall panel.
A Mission You Can Get Behind
Build & Imagine is a new toy company founded on the belief that what we play with matters. Founder Laurie Peterson started Build & Imagine after noticing that the kinds of play experiences she enjoyed as a child (involving building, creativity, and experimentation) were poorly represented in the girls’ section of most toy stores. She now develops building toys with adventurous leading female characters and rich narrative details to engage both girls and boys. Laurie received the 2015 “Rising Star Toy Inventor of the Year” award from TAGIE, and is the mother to a budding 6 year old builder.
