The Original Magicube system has now become a world of magnetic building blocks with the addition of three new shapes: the half cube, quarter circle and the half sphere. Characters, animals, structures, vehicles with real wheels that magnetically attach to the blocks: you will be surprised how many things you can invent. A simple, magical system, just like all our magnetic constructions at Geomag and also kind to the environment as they are made using 100% recycled plastic!
What our testers said
“I’m making a car.” – Boy aged 2
“I made windows on a house!” – Girl aged 4
What our experts think
The colourful Magicube shape sets provide the opportunity to use creativity and problem-solving to build a variety of models while teaching children about magnetism. Some of the children narrated along with their building, using words like “top” and “bottom” which shows that they are developing a visual awareness of the dimensions of different objects.
Younger children particularly enjoyed building and then taking apart the bricks again. This is great for helping them to develop hand-eye coordination and logical thinking skills. We found that having more than one set increased the fun and opportunities for small-world play.
– Develops logical thinking skills
– Helps to refine hand-eye coordination
