So three days ago, the husby and I made a trip back to my parents' and gave the 3 little sisters a surprise gift that we got from Alexa's Playground- an all-new online toy store for both babies and fur babies (pets)!
As usual, we would make them close their eyes to add to the suspense. It's been a tradition in our family for years. This would usually make them super gan jeong :P
Hahaha I love how the parcel covers almost the whole of Evangeline's body :')
With 3 pairs of hands at work, it was a real quick unwrapping process!
They literally went "whoaaaaaa" after seeing the colour of the box (their favourite colour- pink) without even knowing what the toys are all about. Hahaha girls.
So yes! We got them a whole set of LEGO DUPLO Cinderella's Castle! :)
Gladys and I were saying this was like, our childhood dream toys when we were little! Before the days of the Internet and iPads. We could only marvel at them in Toys "R" Us. Those were the days :')
Seeing what can be done with the whole set of LEGO DUPLO Cinderella's Castle got my sisters (and me) super excited!
Check out Evangeline's colourful fingernails ;)
Which I was forbidden to have until I was like, what, 14? And my mum was the one who helped her with the nail colours. And she is just...5. Times have changed...
These girls grew up watching Spongebob Squarepants on YouTube, and playing Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies on iPads. They have never actually really played with LEGOs up until now, which is something really fresh to them!
For those of us who grew up with LEGOs, we know how meaningful it is to play with LEGOs than Minion Rush on iPads.
That's why I was super excited when I knew that Alexa's Playground offers a wide range of LEGO DUPLOs at their website. Glad to know that my sisters love them too!
...and ready to build the castle!
Each LEGO DUPLO set comes with a simple and easy-to-learn instruction manual, as it is made for kids aged 2-5 years. Even Melody and Charity aged 8 and 10 respectively are interested too!
Cinderella's detachable skirt! Hehe
The little details of the castle are really adorable.
Cinderella's mirror. It IS a real, mini mirror! :)
Funky personalised castle by designer Charity :')
One fun thing about LEGO DUPLOs is that though there is a guide on how to build the castle, kids always have the freedom to be creative and explore new things! Such as building a totally new castle structure, or simply mix and match the LEGOs around and build something totally different. Like this one. Hahaha!
As opposed to adult's instruction manuals, kids' manuals are just sooooo much simpler and straightforward. They'll know what to do with just one glance!
And after 20 mins, the Cinderella's Castle is ready for the royalties!
Here's where the fun starts.
Placing Cinderella & Prince Charming at different parts of the castle to tell a different story :)
Tea time with berries and cakes by the fireplace.
Check out the chandelier!

The next thing to get to add to the collection:
Loveeee the details! Check out the glass slipper! :))
