Project MC² is made up of McKeyla McAlister, Adrienne Attoms, Bryden Bandweth and Camryn Coyle these awesome young ladies are making sure girls (and boys) know that it’s cool to be smart and to love S.T.E.A.M subjects (that’s science, technology, engineering, art and maths).
When Season 2 launched in August 2 new recruits Devon D’Marco and Ember Evergreen were brought in to join them on their undercover missions with secret organisation NOV8. The show tackles subjects including hacking, cyber bullying, anarchy and the threat of technology blackouts.
Each of the characters has their own doll version made by MGA Entertainment complete with an experiment. We were sent a Devon D’Marco doll to try out. Devon is an artist who likes to be different.
She comes in a a box with her accessories and a ‘Puffy Paint’ experiment that you can do at home, the instructions for which are written on the back of the box as well as in the product detail leaflet inside the box which gives a more detailed description.
There is also a piece which has the appearance of being written on notepaper – in keeping with the learning theme – explaining how Science, Art and Maths are incorporated in this particular experiment for ‘Puffy Paint’ Part of the back of the packaging can be pulled away revealing the instruction leaflet.
- Devon D’Marco doll
- Paint tubes
The doll itself has moveable arms, legs and head and the most gorgeous raven black and turquoise hair which can be combed through with the beaker shaped comb which we thought was very cute! She also has lovely long eyelashes that made me very jealous :-D.
She comes with her own backpack and boots which even have little paint splatters on them and her earrings can be removed.
The paint tubes are included to enable you to have a go at making the ‘Puffy Paint’ as described and decant it into the tubes for using to make pictures.You just need a few items – water, flour, salt, and drink mix although I must say I found it difficult to find powdered drink mix in the UK so this would be an Ebay or Amazon job for us.
The dolls are aimed more at tweens and they are not suitable for children under the age of 3 due to some of the smaller parts present but my 4 year loved her and happily played with her. Mind you she is doll mad so I had a right job getting photos from her as she wanted to do a runner and play with her straightaway. Always a good sign! These would make a lovely Christmas present.
You can also go to the website www.projectmc2.com for more information, experiments, quizzes and to join NOV8. You can watch episodes on Netflix (new ones coming in October 2016)
The Project Mc2 line is available at all good toy retailers priced from around £24.99 RRP.
*We were sent the doll for free for the purpose of this review however all opinions remain honest and my own*
