All Things Princess || Fun with Go Go Smart Friends


October 3, 2016


Let’s face it… it’s princess central at our house these days and I’ll be the first one to admit I might enjoy it almost as much as my girls. I may have daydreamed about those gals a time or two throughout my adolescence and so I’m living vicariously through my little ones and their love of princesses, too!

Recently, we found the Go! Go! Smart Friends® Enchanted Princess Palace™ and we are LOVING this new electronic learning toy. It takes up quite a bit of space [it expands to almost four feet wide], so we house it in our playroom on the train table, that way we can get ALL the accessories out and explore each magical room… of course every princess needs her ballroom, music room, kitchen, and parlor, so we make sure that each lady has her fair share of adequate space for our trinkets and treasures!!

Included with the palace is Princess Darla, who has five interactive MagicPoint® locations, where you simply place her on the spot to experience her friendly personality, lights, and more. For the little ones that are learning colors, letters, and are being introduced to words, there are three light-up buttons that help them master these important essentials… I think this would make a fantastic Christmas gift for anyone who starts searching early like me, so bookmark it now!  We are working on learning to tell time in our house, so the palace clock with movable hand and electronic responses has been a fun learning tool for both Caroline and Carson.

The princess palace also comes with fun accessories including a bed, harp, and mirror and you can buy additional friends and items to go with the castle. It works with other Go! Go! Smart Friends® playsets and MagicPoint® characters.
Looking for details on where you can find it for yourself?? It’s available at most major retailers including Target, Amazon, Toys R Us, and Walmart, retails for just under $60, and it’s for kids in the 1.5 through 5 year age range. Can you tell how excited Caroline was when I surprised them with their newest toy??!?!
