Let's begin with Mechanics Gravity - this comes with 115 pieces which consists of various structural elements to put everything together, magnetic cannon balls, and a guide for building the racetrack. The racetrack features a magnetic cannon to launch balls and a magnetic catcher to stop them. Kids will have fun exploring the magical world of the invisible forces of magnetism and gravity. Set everything in motion with an innovative magnetic cannon that uses the force of attraction of the accelerating magnet without resorting to electric or battery motors. The Mechanics Gravity stimulates all levels of STEM learning.
Moving on to the GEOMAG Confetti set. It appears that this is an updated version of previous sets with new colors, box design, and number of pieces. The Confetti 32-piece box set includes nine spheres, 12 magnetic rods, 11 shape panels, and a guide. Magnetic rods and non-magnetic steel spheres come together to create a number of shapes. The spheres click into the panels and can remain there, becoming a base for endless construction possibilities. The guide is helpful to give children tips on what and how to create, but the guide was a bit difficult to understand. For instance the instructions to make a basic square, seemed like they were for another set, since making the square was not possible. The colored pieces in the instructions were not available in the set so building wasn't possible.
The pieces are strong and sturdy. There's imaginative building with both sets. Kids will develop problem solving skills and fine motor skills. Also, almost all GEOMAG sets are compatible with other GEOMAG sets.
For ages 3 and over.
The GEOMAG confetti should have clearer instructions.
