The Ultimate Guide to Magformers

The Ultimate Guide to Magformers

Magformers weren’t around when my kids were little, but they would have been a big hit in our homeschool for sure! My kids did play extensively with a similar, magnetic building product, as well as Lego, K’nex, architectural blocks. And more. Building with Magformers encourages children to use their imagination and show their creativity while developing skills and knowledge critical to their developmental success. Magformers uses high quality “always attracting” magnetic technology that provides endless constructional play.
Educents offers all of the following sets of Magformers and more! Learn more about the educational value of each set, and find the special set your child will love.

The Beginner Set

Magformers are super powerful shapes that transform into colourful geometric builds that adhere on every edge with magnets. Build simple forms from houses to rockets. The possibilities are endless with this 30-piece sets which include 18 squares and 12 triangles!

“I definitely recommend Magformers for a few reasons. I love how sturdy they are, the creations don’t fall apart! You can do a lot with a few pieces, we have the smallest set and it has already provided hours of play. I love the colors and the way you can add other sets onto your first set to keep expanding. The appeal to young and older kids is a big plus, it’s a great family toy. So much learning happens through play and this toy is no exception!” -Carisa, Blogger from 1+1+1=1

This is a great toy for children with special needs.

Focus on colors. Combine the two shapes when introducing colors. Begin by only introducing one color by laying the shapes flat on a table. Name the color. Eventually, have the child sort colors and connect shapes of the same color. Keep the shapes flat as each shape is double-sided and possesses two different colors.” – Gabriella V., Special Needs Homeschool Blogger
