I absolutely love open-ended play for children and Magna – Tiles really wins on this.
They are so versatile and excellent for developing imaginations.
These have been one of Isabellas most played with toys since she got them and she loves to add in other toys too, like little figures etc.
Through working in childcare environments I have played with a variety of brands but I have to say Magna – Tiles have been top on durability, performance and quality.
The super high quality magnets easily snap together, making them easy to build with.
They are also the perfect size for small hands and have been fantastic for helping to develop Isabellas fine motor skills.
Isabella has loved creating all sorts of imaginative structures, from spaceships and rockets to flowers.
One thing I really love about Magna -tiles is how easy they are to wipe clean and in this strange world we currently find ourselves living in, this is a major factor for me when buying toys.
I have also been looking for toys that will keep Isabella entertained at home and something that provides educational benefits for her.
I am a firm believer in Learning through play and Magna -Tiles win here again as children learn so much from them without even knowing.
Here are a learning benefits we have found from playing with them,
Hand eye coordination
Balance and weight
Magna – tiles provide hours of play and we will definitely be adding more to our collection, especially now I have seen some of the new ones out!
They certainly are a classic childhood toy and I highly recommend them, I think even a two year old could enjoy them with supervision. My older girls love playing with them and so do I (not just for children!)
All Magna-Tiles shapes have a unique ability to always attract, even when tiles are flipped – it’s the secret power of the click! That means anything children can dream and imagine, they can build!
The durable magnetic building tiles will spark children’s creativity, and provide hours of play, as pre-schoolers make, create and learn – and become Magna-Makers!
I for Isabella as she practices her phonics and letter recognition.
Whether building a colourful rainbow, a bustling city or a soaring rocket ship, little ones will be getting a head start on learning shapes, colours and basic building skills.
