When I was a little girl, building toys were strictly for boys. Yes, I did own a set of Tinker Toys, but they were not particularly girlie. And honestly, I didn’t even know exactly what to do with them until my older boy cousin showed me the ropes.
Times have changed. And now building toys are made specifically for girls. Today we understand the important developmental skills all children learn from play building. The Mega Bloks Lil’ Princess 3-Story Enchanted Castle is a perfect way to spark building creativity in girls. Yes, there is a princess. And yes, there is a pony. This is what girls want. But there is also plenty of flexibility for girls to create a variety of different castle structures. The best type of toy sparks a child’s imagination and gives them the freedom to create their own world.
Like all toys nowadays, it will take you a few minutes to get the pieces out of the box, but once you do, you’re done. There is no other parent building required. Your child can just take over from here!
The little princess can ride her pony, or attach to the castle.
Once she is on the castle, her tiara pops out!
And down below her horse also has his own special place.
The building portion of this toy exists within the castle. Girls can build up to three levels and create a variety of options. Here is another castle option.
The turrets can easily be lifted off, giving a child the freedom to create their own play castle.

The set also comes with a sheet of stickers to decorate the castle!
Little girls will have a lot of fun placing the stickers all over the castle! So parents might be inclined to “help” their child put the stickers in the “right” spot, but I say let the child do their own thing!
The 3-Story Enchanted Castle is part of the new Lil’ Princess series of preschool toys in the Mega Bloks First Builders toy line.
