MAGFORMERS Giveaway: Annual Toy Review & GIVEAWAY from

We’re GIVING AWAY one set of MAGFORMERS (8 pieces)

Why we love MAGFORMERS

After the kiddos fell in love with a small set of magnet tiles at a friends house, I began looking into similar building tiles. MAGFORMERS came out on top with the best reviews. Since I found them to be a bit pricey, I tucked the idea away for Christmas. After much research, Santa gifted the children a set of MAGFORMERS Magnetic Building Construction Set – 62 Piece Extreme FX Set. The children share the set and have played with them over and over again throughout the year. They are asking for another shared set this year. Having them share the set makes them a more affordable gift.

This Set of Triangles will give you a sample to test. But beware, I haven’t run into a child who doesn’t love building with these magnet blocks. You’ll need another set!

Connect Flat Shapes to Build 3-D Objects!

 The set of 62 pieces comes with an Idea Booklet to get the kiddos started.

10 Things We Like about Magformers:

  1. gender neutral
  2. wide age range (we always get out these blocks when little ones come to visit)
  3. the shapes always connect
  4. magnets are completely encapsulated in the plastic
  5. durable
  6. encourages imaginative play
  7. promotes problem solving when planning and building
  8. teaches how to follow simple directions
  9. geometric learning
  10. NO batteries!

Things to Consider:

  • Purchase a larger set as 30 pieces really limits building and sharing.
  • Purchase a set with pentagons. It opens the door to more building options.
  • Do your research to find the set that gives you the most pieces for the best price.
  • Currently, the best set for the money I have found is the 62 piece Designer Set.

YES! I love educational type toys! We have a few different type of block sets on our list!

Robin December 5, 2013 at 7:16 pm

Love the learning toys, especially the ones that allow the children to use their imaginations.. have you seen magna-tiles? They remind me of these magformers.

Dianne December 5, 2013 at 8:37 pm

I love toys that allow my daughter to develop problem solving skills and her imagination.

We’re really leaning towards imagination toys this year, nothing plastic. One son is getting a super hero cape and the other son is getting a magic set.

Tara H December 6, 2013 at 8:31 am

I love educational toys. We’re done shopping. The most educational thing we bought this year is an ant farm. :)

Stasia December 6, 2013 at 10:14 am

Yes! I have been looking at this game call Bugs and Slugs and some board games that have certain topics such as countries or times in history. Also puzzles my kids LOVE puzzles!

Chris December 6, 2013 at 1:44 pm

I love Wedgits my kids have been playing since they where 2 and still going strong at 5+ . My teen even fiddles with it.

Jeannine December 6, 2013 at 2:58 pm

Michelle, I like these MAGFORMERS because they encourage problem solving and imagination. The kiddos have turned these MAGFORMERS into everything from a ZOO to an coral reef. They add animals and the pretend play begins! And the MAGFORMERS allow them to change the play continuously.

Shannon December 9, 2013 at 2:02 pm

I’ve been researching this toy for a while! I’m debating between them and Magnatiles.

Jeannine December 10, 2013 at 12:28 pm

I researched Magnatiles as well. My kiddos preferred the MAGFORMERS to the Magnatiles. In fact they love their MAGFORMERS.

Ellie December 10, 2013 at 2:13 pm

I should try to find some good toys for under the tree. I’ve been focused on the book shopping and art supplies.

Jeannine December 10, 2013 at 3:20 pm

You can NEVER have too many books under the tree! And art supplies are a creative must in our home.
