It was so hard to keep the secret! I actually shared the secret with Katrina (my 4 year old) and almost regretted that decision when she told me she had shown Talia the box of gifts I had wrapped:
Luckily, when I questioned Talia about what Katrina had shown her, all she knew was that there were a couple of surprise gifts for her party (she had only seen two, and had no idea what was inside).
Talia was totally excited when she opened the first surprise gift:
(the Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build 'n Style Pool Party)
The kids all gathered around to see what would be inside of the other gift (the Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build 'n Style Luxury Mansion which she had her eye on already, and couldn't believe she was holding in her hands!)
Then I told them that I thought it would be more fun if EVERYONE got to open a gift, and then I pulled out each of the gifts for the guests. I loved seeing their reactions! They were pretty thrilled about their surprises!
(They each got either the Mega Bloks Barbie® Build ‘n Style Fashion Boutique or the Build 'n Style Ice Cream Cart)
As soon as Talia had finished opening her other gifts, we had time for the girls to open their Barbie® Megabloks® sets and start assembling them.
I don’t know about the other kids,
but I know mine have been having a lot of fun with their toys since the party!
It took some work to get the bigger things assembled, but I'll admit I enjoyed helping! And they were absorbed in playing with them for a loooong time after the assembly was complete! These will be great for them- as long as they can keep all of the pieces together (miracle?). I'm glad we don't have any tiny kids or babies at our home to watch while they're playing!
Here's a quick video that shows you a bit about the other Mega Bloks® Barbie® toys:

I’ll share more about Talia’s birthday party in a later post, but I wanted to share this fun part first!
I loved being able to do this!
