Girls and Legos: Making it Work

You may remember in my Tinker Bell post that I expressed the desire for Tinker Bell themed Legos to encourage my daughter’s creativity.  Since Disney doesn’t seem to have read my post, I thought I would take matters into my own hands.  I found a little fairy* (and a mermaid for good measure) at Target and thought they would fit well to Rose’s creations.

The look on her face was priceless when I pulled them out last night when we went to build with her Legos.  Her imagination immediately went into overdrive and there was soon a lake for the mermaid and a flower garden for the fairy.

I think the smile on her face says it all.

It didn’t stop there.  Soon there was this.

And lots of this.  Best. Idea. Ever.

I can’t wait to see where her imagination takes her.  Time to encourage her to engineer some of the cool devices Tinker Bell creates in her movies.

*I tried to find the fairy and mermaid I bought but Amazon didn’t have the exact one.  This is the same thing but with a Princess, Fairy, Mermaid, and Unicorn. I wish I had seen this one!

  1. That’s a great idea! My little girl loves building with legos but definitely likes to have a story to build around. Love it!
