Who would love this: Young kids that love building blocks!
Building blocks are classic, timeless, and never run out of style. But when we combine traditional blocks with magnetic charm, they become MAGIC! Geomag recently sent us a set of Magicube 13 pieces for review - once again, it’s proven that we don’t need anything too complicated to keep the kids enchanted with hours of fun.
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) 100% Recycled Plastic- Magnetic blocks are no stranger in the toy market, but I think what really sets Magicube apart is the assurance of sustainability - the blocks are manufactured from 100% recycled plastics and contained in a packaging made of 80% recycled PET. With all the debates around plastic toys and going green, I think this is a BIG PLUS.
(2) Magnetic Blocks + 6 Sided Attachment - The set comes with 13 magnetic pieces with six-sided attachment for free-style building (in other words: gravity defying and not just the usual vertical build!). You get 4 rolling wheels, 2 wheel bases, 2 cubes, 2 quarter circles, 2 half-cubes, and a half-sphere. They are chunky, light-weight, easy to connect with no polarisation restriction. I love the harmonised colours in dark green, lime green, bright yellow, white, and grey. I wasn’t too sure initially about the value of this toy: with the wheels fitted onto the bases, there are essentially just 9 separate pieces for the kids to do their mix and match. But any doubt about this toy soon vanished: my three-year-old LOVES it! She was completely engrossed playing with them. It was a non-stop process of building, destructing, repeating. The creative possibilities are (surprisingly) almost limitless! The magnets attach well but are not too strong, and produce an addictive clicking sound when connected. It’s easy to be pulled apart by toddlers without much frustration. I also love the illustrated idea sheet for inspiration.
(3) Wheels In 2 Different Sizes- I love that the four wheels come in two different sizes, which gives the creations some unique dynamics and angles.
(4) Quality- The toy is made in Switzerland; the quality control is top-notch with smooth finishes and good material. Geomag manufacturing complies with the strictest European and International safety standards - another BIG plus!
