One of the comments that keeps coming up during our parent-teacher interviews is that our children are very creative, they just love ‘making’ things and come up with the most interesting designs. It is so much fun to see their little brains work and watch their hands turn their plans into something unique and amazing. Construction toys are therefore a big favourite in our house and as soon I spotted Geomag I knew the kids would enjoy the challenge:
Geomag is a Swiss designed construction toy range that uses the timeless fun of magnets to open a whole new world of building opportunities. The range is suitable for ages 3+ and consists of lots of different designs, shapes, colours (yes, even pink and glitter!) and accessories that are sure to appeal to creative minds of all ages.
We started our Geomag journey with Geomag Panels, a collection that combines the magnetic fun of Geomag Classic with brightly coloured panels in basic shapes. To help you on your way the back of box shows a selection of projects you can make with the contents of that box, but obviously the sky is the limit and you can use your imagination to build your very own creations too.
With the school holidays around the corner Geomag will be a fabulous boredom buster and of course you can use and reuse the pieces over and over again or combine different sets. Our 7-year old twins have recently been exploring the world of geometry at school and how much more exciting than seeing shapes on boring paper is bringing them to life by building them yourself!
This is a fabulous example of why Geomag is not just a toy, it’s an excellent educational tool too and a great exercise for fine motor skills. The Geomag ‘Magic Rocker’ is one of those quick, simple but fun projects that teaches kids the basic of magnetism, our 5-year old thought it was amazing and wanted to build it over and over again.
Geomag Panels are available in five different sets and prices start at a very affordable RRP $20.
