Review: Magformers 62 Piece Set
Colin and I first came across Magformers when we visited a friend’s house a year back. Less than a few months, we succumbed to the temptation and purchased the Magformers Designer Set as opposed to getting the conventional Mega Bloks building blocks although the recommended age for Magformers was 6+.
In the initial months, we were basically the ones building different structures with the magnetic pieces and teaching Ashley what they were. Slowly, Ashley would just tell us what she wants and we will build for her. A few months back after she turned 26 months, she started hands-on with the magnetic pieces and could build simple structures such as wheels and railway tracks independently. Since then, this has become a routine and a compulsory before bedtime activity.
More information on the Magformers Designer Set is as follows: 62 Pc Magnetic Construction Shapes for Intelligent Building Complete with 20 Triangles, 22 Squares, 14 Isosceles Triangles, 4 Diamonds, and 2 trapezoids.
Magformers has been awarded “BEST TOY FOR KIDS” in 2009 and 2010 by Astra (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association). They really do help boost imaginations of kids using play.
Below are more photos of Ashley having fun with Magformers and her simple “creations” at a tender age of 2.
