I always love finding things that help get LP thinking in new ways, work on her creativity and are fun at the same time. When a Magformers set arrived in the post I knew that LP would love playing with it almost as much as me!
Magformers are plastic shapes that have magnets built in. The pieces attach together using the magnets to create all sorts of shapes and objects – the only limit is your imagination.
The Magformers set that we were sent contained 30 pieces in lovely pastel type colours. The pieces came in two shapes – squares and triangles and allowed LP to make even basic shapes by herself.
Both LP and Little Man loved putting the squares on their wrists as bracelets and LP pointed out shapes on the box asking me to help her make a butterfly, a flower and anything else that she wanted.
The pieces attach together really easily and make pretty solid shapes when the pieces are all connected although you have to be quite careful as you’re putting them together as they can be quite fragile whilst being constructed.
LP loved picking out different colour pieces and finding the right shapes for me and I think this shows that the age range of three and over is right for Magformers. She will learn to construct more shapes as she grows and until then we can all enjoy Magformers together.
I know that we will be playing with Magformers for years. They’re well made, have other sets that you can buy to expand your collection – and creativity – and are the sort of toy that even adults could play with.
The Magformers set has an RRP of £29.99
