Finally, a line of building toys geared toward girls! Because after all Girls Build Too! Besides my husband, my ten year old Joy is the engineer of the family. This girl LOVES to build…and take things apart. It’s how her mind works. When she was an infant, she would take a screw off the crib and hand it to me every morning! On the phone one morning, I looked outside in the back yard, and she was taking my patio furniture apart! Whenever anything comes into our house that needs to be put together, Joy comes to the rescue.
I cannot tell you how excited she was to receive a set of GoldieBlox toys! First she opened and put together her GoldieBlox Zipline.
It was in building the drum that she first ran into a little trouble. You know, it’s in the midst of trouble that our true character comes out isn’t it? She began to get frustrated when she put the drum together then realized the inside parts were not facing the right direction to finish putting it together. She had to tear the outside paper to get back into the drum to fix it. I wondered how this would affect her. Would she be disappointed? Discouraged? “Mom, we can just tape it!” It was a no brainer! Problem solved. No biggie. There’s not much in life that we get right the first time is there? Figuring out a solution without losing our cool is a great thing to learn!
