Have fun building incredible structures with SmartMax®! SmartMax allows children to explore magnetism safely. The oversized pieces are specifically designed for handling by young kids as they learn about the effects of magnetic attraction and repulsion, while older children will have fun using the pieces to construct towers, bridges and other creations. The magnets are strong enough to carry up to 60 times their weight! The Start set includes 23 pieces and a guide to build models. Extension sets are available separately.
SmartMax® magnetic bars feature unique color codes: "Cold"-colored bars (blue, green, purple) attract "warm" colored bars (red, orange, yellow). Warm-colored bars repel other warm-colored bars; cold-colored bars repel other cold-colored bars. SmartMax products include complete, colorful guides with both product information and sample designs. All parts can be combined with all existing SmartMax sets, creating an endless range of possibilities!
SmartMax® is an outstanding STEM toy. Not only do kids experience basic math and engineering, but activities such as building ramps for moving vehicles and creating ball run sets add more advanced STEM skills – All while being completely engaged in a fun activity!
SmartMax® bars contain magnets that are sonically welded for extra safety, and SmartMax balls are too large to be swallowed.
