Ever since Maggie was a baby, well, a toddler I suppose, there have been certain toys that always grab their attention. My kids love to build. We have so many different blocks and other builder types of toys and they get played with SO often. The latest addition to our collection has been Magformers. I’ve been eyeing these up for probably close to a year thinking that the kids would absolutely love them.
If you haven’t heard of Magformers before, they are magnetic shapes that can be used to build tons of different things. Different sets contain different shapes and colors and I basically want them all. This is one of the toys that I really love to play with as well. I enjoy building things and I love that I can work together with the kids to create tons of things.
When I had the opportunity to review the Magformers Neon 60 piece set, I knew the kids would be thrilled! When I opened the box and pulled out the 60 pieces, Maggie’s eyes got all big with excitement. Not only did she love the colors and the 6 different shapes but she was having so much fun with them being magnetic. The set also comes with an instruction guide with pictures of 28 different creatures or things that you can build with this set. Maggie had so much fun building the different things in the guide – her first project was the gift box. She made it all by herself following the picture.
Her and Charlie both have so much fun making different patterns and shapes or just using only one type of shape to create something. Every single morning as soon as we woke up she started asking if she could play with the “magnet builders” again. She was so bummed when I told her that they were going away and that she was only helping me review them for work. She had spent every moment of the two weeks we had them out playing with them. She’s going to be ridiculously excited to unwrap them at Christmas. As a bonus, I also ordered her another set that she doesn’t yet know about. I am not even joking when I tell you that we want every single one of the sets.
The kids don’t like to play with them together too often if they are following the directions to build a certain thing because they end up fighting over certain pieces, so we usually only play with these one kid at a time. I secretly love this because it gives me the chance to have some fun one on one with each of the kids while watching their brain developments.
If you are looking for something sure to be a hit with just about any kid, Magformers are the perfect gift. They are Neodymium Rare-Earth Magnets that are guaranteed to connect every time. There really is a kit for everybody, whether you are a beginning builder, an old pro or anywhere in between. There are even kits with motion and I can’t wait to check these out. Magformers have provided us with endless hours of fun and learning. Every day I get to see their creativity shine.
I’d love to know which Magformers set you would love to have and what you will build.
