This is an awesome idea for toys that get girls into engineering and making. I think, of course, there’s the standard argument that coloring a toy pink doesn’t make it good, HOWEVER, I think the idea of mixing toys with stories — essentially, providing a why for building things — is really important/interesting.

Meet Goldie, her beloved dog, Nacho, Benjamin Cranklin (the cat with an attitude), Katinka (the dolphin ballerina), Phil (the sloth) and Flavio (the bear from Brazil). Help Goldie figure out how to build a belt drive to spin everybody! (via Goldie Blox™)
