The Roominate line of customizable building sets for girls expands this year with new building pieces and accessories. With the Roominate Townhouse set, kids get 121 pieces to build a three-story townhouse, wire a real-working fan, and then customize the townhouse however they want. Kids don't even have to build what they see in the picture on the box. The instructions give options for how to build the walls of the townhouse and different configurations for putting the walls together. There are also lots of ideas for designing furniture and other household accessories using the plastic pieces and stickers. And kids can rebuild the fan into other motorized objects, such as a merry-go-round, a fireplace, or a washing machine. Plus, the set comes with a Zoey doll and Zoey's cat Erwin.
The circuits in this set can also be connected to an rPower accessory, sold separately, so that kids can control their creations through the free Roominate app.
The Roominate Townhouse set includes four wall/floor panels, 52 furniture building pieces, 40 connectors, 12 columns, two wheels, two axles, one motor, one battery pack, one screwdriver, three sticker sheets, one sheet of wallpapers, a Zoey doll, and an Erwin the cat figure.
