I’m a huge fan of learning, in fact I never stop. Since I left college I have completed various free and Open University courses to feed my learning craving. I’m hoping to pass this onto baby girl. I’m a huge believer of children feeding their minds of new facts, and new things. Especially when it comes down to S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) subjects.
On Netflix Project Mc2 is a TV show set in a fictional city called Maywood Glen, California, it revolves around the fields of STEAM, and the adventures of super smart McKeyla McAlister and her best friends, who work for a government organization called NOV8 (pronounced “innovate”), a highly secretive group of cool teenage female government operatives who are trying to protect the world.
We were very lucky to be sent a Project Mc2 Experiment doll to review this past week. The experiment dolls are based on the Project Mc2 characters from the Netflix series. Each doll comes with its own experiment that you can complete at home with simple household items and the great thing about it is that the experiments can be completed over and over again.
Arriving in the post was the earthy scientist Ember Evergreen doll. The experiment to complete with Ember Evergreen was to make fairy wing earrings. Included with the doll was a pink silicone mould, gold plastic clip on earrings which was for the experiment. Accessories for Ember Evergreen included a comb for her beautiful pink hair, and a purple eye mask.
Features of the doll
- Fully articulated doll (knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck) features premium saran hair, glass eyes and eyelashes.
- Includes mold and set of clip-on earrings. Also comes with mask, woodland headband and comb for doll.
- Removable wings on the doll.
The doll is designed with such poise. Baby girl was fascinated with her real eyelashes! Her hair is takes a bit of combing to begin with once out of the packaging. She was extremely well packaged! It took me a good five minutes to get into the packaging and cut all the little plastic ties. This must be done by an adult only. It’s much too fiddly for young children to attempt.
All we needed for the experiment was some PVA glue, like the glue you use at school. Unfortunately I thought I had some in my kitchen drawer, but it seems to have gone walkabout. Probably since we moved house it’s got lost alongside the Christmas tree which we are still yet to find! The glue is on my Christmas shopping list for us to try out the experiment over the holidays.
You can add sequins and other embellishments to the glue in the mould while it’s still wet to make the earrings sparkle.
The doll is recommended for ages 6 years +, I believe at this age they would be very interested in the experimental side of the product. Baby girl loves to hold the doll and chat away to her!
This doll would make a brilliant Christmas present for the Project Mc2, fairy loving doll fan in your life.
You can buy the dolls from most good toy retailers.
