“Smart is the new cool”
Ok that slogan alone had me wanting to check out the new Project Mc2 dolls and kits. So what is Project Mc2 you might be asking, well it is a new line for kids that is focused on STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Math) learning and fun. The line features four young girls who have been recruited by a secret spy organization. The Project Mc2 girls are also apart of a series that is on Netflix and also check out the YouTube page for clips and demos from them. Project Mc2 also has an App availed for iOS, where you’re able to help the girls solve cases using scientific techniques. And last but not least of course there is projectmc2.com which gives bios on all the girls, activities and games to do and also video clips. Ok now it’s time to talk about these awesome new toys!
It was basically a given that my little skater girl would get a skateboarding doll and one that comes with a little science project was just the cherry on top. Camryn’s skateboard has you assemble her rocket board by flowing some unique blue prints.
The doll/kit comes with almost everything to complete the experiment. The only items extra that were needed was a cup of water and a paint brush. This is what I really loved about it, since I go to get science kits and then need to go out and get extra supplies. Now this was just the Camryn kit the other three girls do use a few more materials but most of which are common household items like vegetable oil and baking soda.
My daughter had a fun time revealing th hidden blue print and after that it was time to put the board together. We are no strangers to assembling skateboards so doing this mini one was a cinch for my munchkin. But over all the instructions are fairly simple to follow.
The finished project!
So here is the end result, I would have to say my kiddo was so happy to do a little project instead of just assembling the board with regular instructions. She’s now asking for more sets! Besides the experiment she really likes all the girls in the Project Mc2 line. They promote smart girls and are such a positive influence. The clothing on them is so fun and more in tune with the apparel of young girls. There are dolls available that do not come with an experiment which is nice so you can just get the girls if the projects don’t interest your little one. And there is also just experiment kits available as well.
My daughter is definitely drooling over this awesome Lab Kit. It looks perfect for the scientist on the go.
The Project Mc2 series can be found at Target, Walmart, Toys’R’Us and even JoAnn’s. The dolls range from range from $14.99 to $24.99 and the kits are up to $54.99 (The Ultimate Lab Kit). Go and check these amazing smart girls out for your self!
