We are always on the lookout for new toys that promote creativity and STEM learning. This is why we were so excited when we were provided the new Magformers Neon Creator Set for review.
Magformers are magnetic creative building toys for kids age 3+. With their 'always attracting' technology the edges will stick together instead of reject. Kids can build geometric shapes, houses, buildings, 2D nets and more out of the Neon colored squares and triangles in this 26 piece set.
The Neon Color set is a nice sized box and exciting looking presentation. My little guy was jumping for joy when it came out of the box!
The set came with a booklet that had a variety of designs but my son, who is 4, wanted to start working with the pieces on his own without a pattern. The edges easily snapped together and he was able to start forming 3 dimensional shapes with the squares and triangles on his own.
He enjoyed snapping, designing, and creating with Magformers. When he was done, cleanup was a snap as they all stick together, quickly and easily in a compact stack.
Not only would this be a fun "take-along" toy for a restaurant or car trip, but I could see buying a variety of different sets to create large elaborate structures straight from the geometry of your imagination. Great gift idea, too!
