Promote Creativity & Educational Play with Magformers Magnetic Blocks

I was provided with Magformers for a review and giveaway. All opinions are my own. Affiliate links included for your convenience. 

Do you have kids that love to build things? My girls love any type of building set they can get their hands on. They’ve even been known to turn all the scrap pieces of wood their Dad leaves in the garage into building blocks, and I love watching their little imaginations come alive as they work on new creations.

We had the pleasure of testing out a couple Magformers sets, and I already knew they would be a hit before handing them over to my 6 year old. What I didn’t anticipate was my 2 year old being so captivated by Magformers, too! And the truth is, my husband and I have spent just as much time playing with these awesome little blocks as the girls have (even a few late nights building after the girls were in bed)!

What are Magformers?

Magformers are a unique form of building blocks that combine creative thinking, entertainment, and education through STEM play. The flat plastic pieces with magnets inside come in a variety of shapes and are combined to create 3D objects. The possibilities of what you can create are practically endless!

Each Magformer set comes with an idea booklet that contains instructions to build a variety of different objects. Before turning my girls loose with the Magformers 62 Piece Set and Magformers 62 Piece Designer Set we sat down as a family and built some of the more simple shapes in the idea booklet. We each picked out a shape to try and worked together to build it. While building a box I looked over to see my 6 year old, Ellie, already branching out into building her own objects (pictured front left).

The idea booklet’s instructions are pictured so even a child Ellie’s age who isn’t yet reading can follow along. once Ellie got the hang of reading the instructions I turned her loose in her bedroom with the Magformers for an hour. When I returned I found she had built 2 of the featured “projects” on her own, the helicopter and penguin. She then combined the leftover pieces into her own “village”.

MAGFORMERS play

I have never found myself so excited over a toy…ever! If you’ve got a little builder you need these blocks! Seriously, they are the best block type toy we have ever played with, and my daughters have hardly touched any of their other toys in weeks. My 2 year old sorts the shapes into stacks, identifies the different colors, and is beginning to build simple pyramids and boxes. The blocks are hollow making them great for little hands.

I love how much fun my daughters are having with the Magformers, but best of all is the educational value. They would be a great addition to any classroom or home school!

Where can you find Magformers?

Magformers are available online at magformers.com. You can also find Magformers on Amazon.com (great item for wishlists!), and in some stores locally. Use the retail locator to see if a store in your area carries them.
