Do you have a little creator in your home? A little mind full of imagination? I do. My son, Brad, tries to build with anything he can get his hands on. I was super excited to give Magformers a try. When it arrived I was impressed as I was getting the pieces ready for play, just how well they held together. The instruction book comes with lots of fun ideas to do with the pieces enclosed. The pieces have small magnetic strips on all four sides and stick together better than most locking blocks we have used.
My first thoughts when attempting to create "the ball" was maybe this was a little too much for him. There were exact instructions to follow and I wasn't sure how well he would do without my help. I was completely wrong! Not only did he start making shapes without my help, but I think he did it faster on his own!!! While I continued on with my afternoon, this busy son of mine played an hour and a half uninterrupted with Magformers. He only stopped to show me what magnificent creation he had just finished. If you are looking for a toy that opens up imagination, enhances creativity, and let's be realistic, is mess free, then Magformers is a must try! I know we will be adding more to our collection soon!
