If you're not yet familiar with Magformers, they're colorful construction sets with pieces featuring built-in magnets on each side so that the pieces snap and stay together easily. The Magformers Designer set includes 62 pieces: 22 squares, 20 triangles, 14 isosceles triangles, four diamonds, and two trapezoids in a variety of rainbow colors. To start, you place the shapes on a flat surface and connect them. Then slowly lift up on the flat model and watch the shapes automatically connect to one another creating a 3-D structure. An idea booklet is included that shows kids how to build 18 different structures from a rocket to a fox as well as pictures of additional 3-D models for inspiration. Of course, as with most construction toys, the best part is that kids can use their imaginations to build whatever they want.
Magformers sets encourage a lot of creative, open-ended play, while also teaching kids about the basics of building and magnetic force.
The Magformers Designer Set is for ages 6 and up.
The pieces in this set can be combined with pieces in other Magformers sets, which are sold separately.
