What It Is
The Magformers Rainbow is a 30-piece magnetic construction set that includes 12 triangles and 18 square pieces in a variety of rainbow colors. Each piece features built-in magnets on each side so that the pieces snap and stay together easily. The magnets act as both a feature to ensure proper building techniques as well as simplify building for little ones. The set comes with an idea booklet that shows kids how to build 18 different structures, but kids can use their imaginations to build whatever they want. First, you start by placing the shapes on a flat surface and connecting them per the instructions. Then slowly lift up on the flat model and watch the shapes automatically connect to one another creating a 3-D model.
Why It’s Fun
This is a construction set that encourages a lot of creative, open-ended play while also teaching kids about the basics of building. In addition, kids are also learning how positive and negative charges attract to create a magnetic force.
Who It’s For
The Magformers Rainbow 30-Piece Set is for ages 6 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
There is also a smaller 14-piece Rainbow set available and sold separately.
