Imaginary Fauna - Jungle, By Lekkid - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:            Magnetic building toys 

Rating:                       ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️  

Recommended age:   3 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Young kids that have BIG Imaginations + love building/ creating 

Magnetic, clear acrylic blocks, solid timber, irregular shapes. “Imaginary Fauna - Jungle” from Lekkid ticks a few boxes that would guarantee to fascinate the kids and captured their attention for hours. 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) 22 Magnetic Pieces To Build And Create  

“Imaginary Fauna - Jungle” has its unique “wow” factor - inside the red cylindrical storage box, you would find 22 magnetic pieces of interesting building pieces. This set has parts that can make sea animals, crocodile, and other imaginary creatures or objects (it makes more than just “real animals”). There is a V-shaped wooden piece that resembles a crocodile pointed snout; a red fiery flat part that looks like a lion mane; a long timber piece that looks like a tail curving upwards; a forked-tail piece that is so common amongst sea creatures; a blue “propeller” part that can be used for jet plane, flat pieces that can turn into pair of legs, a red “fire” piece (kids love building “camp-fire” with it for their pretend marshmallow-toasting session), and more! I can’t verify whether “500,000 jungle creatures” can be created using this pack (as claimed on the box), but this toy sure has HUGE potential and possibilities - especially if your kids enjoy inventing wildly imaginative, silly, abstract, and outlandish objects that don’t really need to make sense to the adults! 

(2) Wooden Material + Acrylic Pieces 

I love the beautiful interaction between the two materials - the solidness of natural beech wood AND the playfulness of light shining through the translucent acrylic pieces. 

(3) Explore The Inter-Connecting Magic Of Magnets 

I was worried initially that the magnetic polarity of the pieces would be too frustrating for younger kids to handle - you need to constantly adjust and test out both sides of the pieces to fit them together magnetically. What I didn’t expect was how much the kids love the challenge and problem-solving experience; They experimented with the pieces, turned the parts around, and identified the correct sides for the inter-connecting magic to happen. 

(4) Designed In Barcelona + Conforms With Toy Safety Standard 

Lekkid is designed in Barcelona. The toy conforms to the international standard of toy safety including ASTM F963 and EN71. This is an exciting toy that we really love.
