Keep your kids busy with this MAGFORMERS Magnetic Construction Set.
It has been a challenge to keep my little one busy with activities this past summer. She is home with me all day and it seems like whatever I do is not enough to keep her from being bored. I am sure I am not alone and have moms in the same boat as me. In addition to that I found myself constantly forbidding her from using my phone, my laptop or watching TV. Keeping her busy ended up being a lot more work for me. So when I received the Magformers Magnetic Construction Set for review purpose, it was blessing in disguise. Since receiving this set, my little one has kept her self busy and out of my hair. Not only is she having a blast constructing different models, I can see she is truly enjoying it.
For those who are not aware of Magformers, it is a magnetic construction set which includes easy to use magnets housed in high quality, multi-colored ABS plastic. They come in different shapes and sizes. These pieces are designed to attract, which in turn helps them to connect to each other. The genius thing about these pieces are that if they are not connected correctly, they repel. This offers additional challenge to kids who then have to figure out how to connect them properly.
We were provided with the 62 pcs construction set. This set was recommended for ages 3 years and above. The set includes 20 triangles, 30 squares and 12 pentagons in different colors. It also included a model booklet with instructions.
Once we opened it, my little one immediately set out to build the models she was interested in. Since this was her first time, I asked her to check out the model booklet for an easy project.
She chose to make a Dodecahedron. At this point I would like to mention that model booklet had easy to understand pictures and instructions. You cannot believe how easy it was for her to assemble her first model. Connecting the pieces together was a breeze.
Next she set out to construct a rocket, followed by a castle. Both were simple, but detailed and she accomplished them with ease. She loved that she was able to construct as well as de-construct the models so easily. Unlike other toys/sets this one was not difficult to dissemble. After proudly displaying all of her creations, she dissembled all the pieces and set out to make other models. Trust me when I say, she is now actually obsessed with the Magformers Magnetic Construction Set and as a mom this is great news to me.
We do have some more good news! We will be giving away this exact same MAGFORMERS Magnetic Construction Set within the next few weeks. So make sure you check back and enter. This will make a great gift for the holidays!
