I am one of those old school parents. I limit my kids time on electronics. I want them to use their imaginations. I grew up playing outside until it was dark with the neighborhood kids and got dirty and I have amazing memories from my childhood. Fast-forward many years and we are in the electronics age and at least for us, we want our kids to have lots of outside and unplugged time!
Recently we were contacted by Mindware, which is the nation’s best resource for educational toys for kids and learning toys for kids that engage and entertain! They manufacture and distribute over 1,000 unique games, toys, building toys, brainteasers, arts and crafts, books and more that engage and educate.
We had the opportunity to review their Imagination Magnets.
I love toys that serve multi-purposes and this is one of those! Not only will your child be able to use the magnets to make cool shapes and designs, they can also use dry-erase markers to draw and make their own creations!
Imagination Magnets is a sure-fire way to boost your child’s fine motor and visual-thinking skills! This strategic building tool features a sturdy wood carrying case with durable hinges and rope handles. Inside, 42 brightly-colored wooden magnetic blocks can be arranged on the board to replicate any of the 50 full-color puzzles, such as animals, faces, vehicles, flowers, structures and more! Plus, the magnetic creation surface doubles as a dry-erase board. The colorful pattern cards are numbered in order of difficulty, ranging from beginner to expert. As each pattern becomes more challenging, patience and confidence is gained through trial and error. Once recreating the patterns has been mastered, creativity takes over through free play. Imagination Magnets inspires hours of continuous play and will quickly become a household favorite!
