Who doesn’t love Magformers!?
To be honest, I had never heard of Magformers before I was asked to write this review! Boy am I glad that they came into our lives, where have I been?
*I received a set of the pictured Magformers in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
If you are asking yourself right now, what in the world is a Magformers?! Read on!
Magformers come in bright, colorful and fun shapes. Magformers are so easy and fun to put together and take apart compared to conventional blocks.
Magformers pieces can be connected in any direction in 3D because of the powerful rotating magnets.
Magformers magnets are 5 times more powerful then magnets in other toys so what you build will stick together. Always attracts, never repels.
My package arrived and I was so impressed, the company even sent me a free T-shirt,which was super cute and great for the kids to wear! My kids were so excited to open the box! The packaging is great and the pieces fit nicely in the box.
Right away my kids were busy putting their Magformers together. This particular set (there are many different sets available) is the 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- Heros in a Half shell Character card set. My kids love love love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so I was thrilled for this theme! 4 play cards came with this set that showed how to build certain shapes like a rocket and a cube. Leo, Donnie, Mikey and Raph come with their own character cards that you can insert into the Magformers squares as well. We also built a Small ball, Triangular Prism, Pyramid, Small Tower and Hourglass with this set.
My kids typically don’t play with blocks or legos and if they do, it’s for like 5 minutes. I was amazed that Magformers kept their attention for over 45 minutes. We all played with them together, even my husband joined in the fun and created some cool designs.
The pieces are study and well built. They don’t feel cheap and flimsy whatsoever! From what I read, magformers sets are all interchangeable so the more you own, the more you have, the more you can build! I was able to talk to my kids about shapes and colors while we played, BONUS!
My only complaint on this set is the 18 pieces. It is really not enough for 2 kids to play with so I would suggest getting a kit with more pieces. I have seen some that start at 30 pieces too available. Believe me, your kids will want to make BIG things. 18 pieces is just not enough.
Ready to get some Magformers! Also a great gift idea for ages 3 and up!
