Recommended for ages 3 to 9 years
With MAGFORMERS®, children can safely enjoy exploring magnets while building 3-D creations from flat geometric shapes. Cylindrical magnets are encased in each side of the plastic triangles, squares, hexagons and other shapes, and each side of each piece sticks to any other piece.
In addition to learning about magnetic properties, MAGFORMERS help children develop spatial thinking: the ability to picture the location of objects, their shapes and their positions as they move. By creating 3-D objects from the flat magnetic pieces, MAGFORMERS help kids understand and manipulate the elements of a structure. “Spatial thinking is associated with skill and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as art, graphic design and architecture.”*
The sets come with diagrams to help kids get started with their 3-D shapes. Once they get the hang of it, they’ll be building castles, airplanes, towers, or whatever they can imagine.
MAGFORMERS construction sets come in various color schemes and are great for kids 3+ (but better suited for 5 to 6+). They're also great building toys for younger children (with supervision). Since any side of a piece can attach to any other side, it's easy for preschoolers to grasp the concept and start building quickly. The combination of shapes, colors and, in some sets, more technical accessories, will give your child the tools to create unlimited designs!
So pick up some MAGFORMERS, and see what you can create!
