After raising three boys, I have gone through my share of toys. One thing that was common to all of them, was their enjoyment for building things. Be it building things from sticks outside to Lincoln Logs, Legos, and more, we have used them. My youngest is the only one that has been able to experience the world of Magnet type block building. He has the original brand that came out a few years ago, and now there are other companies making them as well. This particular set of 40 pieces is from 4DBlocks.
The set consists of different shapes, and bright, fun colored pieces. It encourages creativity, which helps strengthen the mind. All kids have a fascination with magnets as well, so it really is a well-rounded toy. They get to learn about magnets, in regards to both positive and negative polarities, and how they work together. They get to build and create, and have fun while doing it. The majority of the shapes included are triangular, and square. There are hexagons too, as well as a set of wheel bases and solid plates. So, not only can you build buildings, and creations, but you can also build vehicles with this set as well. Although, it’s hard to push a magnet car, lol. No matter what brand you use. It is easy for the car to fall apart, so you need to pull out your top engineering skills for this, lol. They also include an instruction booklet that gives some great building ideas. My son really never looked at it though. He likes to create on his own. Overall, this is a well-made, engaging building set. If your child enjoys building things, they will enjoy his set.
I received this set, at a discount, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. – 4DBlocks – Play it , Love it! – Magnetic Building Block Set.
