Getting kids away from a screen through the summer holidays is always difficult, especially when the weather hasn’t been so great recently. In a desperate bid to come up with some ideas to get kids and adults sharing playtime, we put Geomag’s new range of Magicube building blocks to the test.
Life is full of experiences that we cherish, enjoy and embrace. Whilst children grow up too fast and time is precious as we watch them learn, from building with blocks, counting to ten, or remembering the alphabet. It is these developmental milestones in which we treasure together with our kids. Since 1998 Geomag has been creating award-winning and STEM-enriched toys that help children’s playtime become enriched with educational principles.
Geomag’s range of Magicube toys is the perfect addition to children’s playtime. Magicube is a unique building block system made up of magnetic cubes that attach to each other on all six sides and is made entirely from 100% recycled plastics.
Revolutionary Building Blocks and Shapes
What started out as the original Magicube system has now become a whole new world of magnetic building blocks with the new Magicube Shapes and new Full Color Lines which are the first Magicube lines to be made from 100% recycled plastic. Importantly the new shapes are all fully compatible with all other cubes within the Magicube platform.
Nurture and Flourish
Magicube’s intuitive system encourages children to learn and master a range of skills including problem-solving, motor skills, hand/eye coordination, building, colour recognition and counting. The individual cubes and shapes can be attached with the hidden internal magnets meaning the cubes can very quickly become structures like cars, birds, houses, or planes. The wonder of Magicube is that the cubes can be made into absolutely anything a child wants, as simple or complex as their imagination allows them
100% Recycled Plastic
New 2021 items in the Magicube range are made from 100% recycled plastic giving assurances to parents that children are playing with eco-friendly toys that care about the environment, children, education, and fun in equal measure.
We tried a set recently and I can tell you it was a massive hit.
It was actually so much fun watching Logan play with the set. Although we helped and ‘had a go’ he picked up the box, looked at the east to follow ideas, and set about creating his own designs.
What we particularly like, is that the magnets aren’t too powerful. They are strong enough to hold each brick together, but not so difficult for little hands to take apart.
The Magicube set helps kids……
- Develop visual and manual skills
- Play and learn at the same time
- Experience the magic of magnetism
Magicube is available in sets that have 6 pieces to 64 pieces in a range of styles and themes that can all be mixed and joined together meaning the Magicube grows with your child. By playing with the individual cubes the youngest of children begin to develop their first manual skills, and as they grow older Magicube Shapes are a powerful add-on to allow them to build more complex constructions.
The Magicube Shapes Range can be found in The Entertainer, with prices starting from £15.
