I attended Toy Fair last February and although some things about that exciting event may be a blur in my mind there are still toys that stand out. On my visit to the Bridge Direct showroom I became infatuated with a particular line that was not yet available to the public.
I loved the toy for all the potential it had for inspiring girls with imaginative play that would lead to creativity, adventure and sharing secrets.
Shells seem to hold a fascination for most children and as a resident of Florida I have spent my fair share of walking the beach line and helping my grand-daughter collect shells that she was convinced were treasures.
Waverly and the Magic Seashells are recommended for ages 4+.
My grand-daughter is eight and I imagine Waverly and the Magic Seashells will be on her list of ‘must haves’ and I whole heatedly agree. This is why I kept them in mind and have patiently waited for them to appear on retail shelves.
Waverly and her friends are mermaids and sea creatures. They are small dolls so children can easily take them with them or store them conveniently.
Each item in the line comes with a special pearl that holds the secrets of Waverly and her friends so children learn memory skills while playing and learning more about their new friends.
Additional play sets may be purchased for fun to add to the magical quality of this under water town.
Each special pearl that is included with each item can be placed in the Magic Seashell Playset and the pearl reveals the secrets of Waverly and her friends.
There are 50 secrets revealed in all and some include lights, sounds, and spoken secrets from Waverly and her friends! The play sets are also homes for Waverly and her friends besides the magic pearl reader that unlocks each pearl’s unique secrets.
The suggested retail value is $4.99 – $34.99 so the product is very affordable and great gifts to pick up to increase the size of the collection.
Adding all the ingredients we have:
Little girls+ seashells + mermaids + secrets + imaginative play + Waverly and the Magic Seashells = A real winner and well worth my wait for encouraging my grand daughters imagination and creativity.
Keep your eyes open for this toy as it will start appearing in stores such as Target, Toys R Us and Kmart in the next few weeks.
