Last summer Danica was invited to a friend’s birthday party. As with every party she is invited to, I let her pick out the gift (with some guidance and a spending limit of course). For this particular friend she picked out one of the new Mega Bloks Barbie sets she had been eyeing up. Danica gave it to her friend whose mother later told me she didn’t have anything like it and she now played with it ALL the time.
For Danica’s next birthday she recieved the same set from that friend. She liked it so much she thought Danica should have one too. Danica plays with it ALL the time and recieved a couple more Mega Bloks Barbie sets for Christmas. We recently added to her collection when Mega Bloks sent us their new Build ‘n Play Luxe Camper. Danica was ecstatic. This was her first set that included Barbie’s little sister Chelsea and it was a camper! What more could a girl want?
Barbie® and her little sister Chelsea® head out on a coast to coast, fun-filled road trip in the Mega Bloks Barbie® Build ’n Play Luxe Camper. Build and decorate the sparkling pink camper any way you want as Barbie® and Chelsea® visit all of their favorite attractions and hottest stores. Now it’s time to unwind and take a dip in the hot tub before setting up the picnic table for a tasty treat. Later, Barbie® builds a fire and lazes around on a lounge chair, while Chelsea® heads out for a quick scooter ride. Glamping has never been more relaxing!
This sparkling holiday cruiser opens up to reveal everything and let you enjoy the Camper on the inside, including bunk beds, make-up area and the front seats. Set out on the road with Barbie® and Chelsea® and make it a trip you’ll never forget!
Danica immediately set out to put the set together. With 305 pieces this was no small undertaking. It took her a couple of days to complete it because we had to put it aside for dance class and school. At 7 years old, Danica was able to put it together mostly on her own with some guidance from me and some help finding the correct pieces. I will say there were several plastic bags of pieces and there didn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason to the way they were sorted making it somewhat difficult to find the right ones at times.
She was so proud of herself when it was completed and now it was time to play!

Danica loves the little details of make-up brush, lipstick, hair dryer, and hair brush, just to name a few. Barbie and Chelsea each come with a little block that serves as a stand so they can stand on their own. They have a variety of hair bows and accessories and a purse. Definitely not how I go camping, but I guess I’m not Barbie either.
Chelsea is definitely the highlight of this set. All of Danica’s other sets only contained Barbie, so play was limited as she had nobody to talk to. I definitely think this is her favorite set so far. She also loves Chelsea’s scooter. Her only complaint was that she couldn’t take Chelsea’s helmet off.
The camper is so well thought out. One side opens wide with handled doors making the inside easily accessible for little hands. If you need more room to get inside, the roof of the camper is very easily removed and replaced. The cab of the camper comes complete with seat belts and a seperate easily removeable roof.
This is one more awesome set from Mega Bloks and Barbie. I absolutely recommend checking them out if you have a child interested in Barbie and/or building blocks.
