Magformers Construction Sets made our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for its innovative educational aspects that fosters creativity. Not only are these construction sets educational, but they offer endless fun!
This award-winning company uses rare earth magnets called neodymium, which are the strongest magnets in the world! The patented design magnets are encapsulated inside the plastic, free-floating so they rotate. This allows the magnets to never reject and always connect, making it frustration-free for little ones.
We received the Magformers Transform Set, which includes 54 pieces of geometrical shapes and colors for creative fun. The pieces are double-sided and many offer a different color on the opposite side.
The boys were over the moon excited, especially my little one, who is our artsy child. It was really neat to watch them in action using the Magformers set.
They decided to make an airplane based off one from the front of the box.
There are several creation ideas on the box and in an inside booklet, or you can use your own imagination! The magnets are easy to use with their instant connection.
The boys went on to create their own version of a car and a few other building creations. Magformers offers 25 different sets and a math activity book.
The other construction set we received is the Magformers RC Custom Set, which is tucked away for the upcoming holidays. I can’t wait to see what creations they make with that set!
