It's kind of hard for me to understand that people buy special building toys for their girls. What's wrong with girls building with generic Legos? I also don't understand parents not buying building sets for their girls at all.It's been proven that building toys like Legos and Knex help kids develop spacial skills, hand eye coordination,motor skills,creative thinking,language skills,and with subjects like math. I never thought my kids couldn't have a certain toy because it wasn't meant for their sex.(In fact,it always really ticked me off when I was in a store and a kid would want to look in a particular toy aisle and their parents would say,"No! This is the girls/boys aisle! Let's go look at toys for you!" Let the kid look at what they want. Whatever toy they like is the toy for them. My kids all loved Duplos,and then Legos and Knex.But they also loved dolls and action figures and cars, and you name it. And I'm talking about them all as a group, my two girls and my boy. They all played happily together whether it was building with Legos or playing with dolls.
I only saw Goldie in the stores after she was clearanced.Of course,my kids are older now, so I don't get to frequent the toy aisles as much as I used to.
She came in a set that included the parts and plans for building a zip line to sail her on.
|This stuff sounds like fun!|
|And her goofy sideways grin.|
She is jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows,hips, and knees.
|Goldie runs through the start of my myrtle and my daffodils.|
And hands made to hold her zip line.
She has a tool belt with 'G' for 'Goldie' on it.
