I am all for tech free toys and often the most simple toys are the ones which hold the children’s attention the longest.
Last Christmas they received a set of Playmags and they are bar far the most played with toy, even a year on it is something which they will get out and happily play with together.
We have just been sent another pack and the children will love them.
Playmags are 3D magnectic tiles in a variety of shapes which connect together for hours of open-ended fun.
This set is the classic set which contains 60 pieces with an added 6 double sided clickins which are letter tiles which click into the window tiles.
Playmags building blocks are unique, the magnets attract on all sides and even when flipped around. Children can learn about geometric shapes, symmetry, architecture and basic math concepts such as counting, addition, and subtraction through manipulation of the colourful pieces.
The tiles need to be placed on a flat surface and then the possibilities are endless. Because of the magnetic sides it is easy to form shapes, for instance if building a cube placing two together will provide instant support for the rest of the cube.
Children learn predominantly through play – with this toy the children have created houses, castles, aeroplanes, rockets and many 3D shapes, they can also be laid flat to create pictures which Emmy loves to do – creating underwater scenes or even rocket ships flying off to the moon
The possibilities really are endless with this toy and sets can be added together to create larger ones.
