I know this is a pretty interesting forward list. I love magnets. I have given magnets to kids of all ages, and the one thing I noticed, they were all engaged in age-appropriate STEM play. If you go through my blog, you will see I have many amazing magnetic toys, however, since this is the holidays, I have sorted out only the top for you.
As an added bonus, I have organized the magnets according to age and skill level. If you have older kids, feel free to scroll to the bottom.
Holiday Gift List 2017: Magnets
If you are looking to get your kids their very first set of quality magnets, I have yet to find a better set then Picasso Tiles. These magnets are good quality, fun shapes, and provide hours of stimulation for the kids.
Another amazing beginner set of tiles is Pythagoras Tiles. Not only are they great quality, but they come with figurines. For me, this was a first. This not only gives the kids a STEM component, but it is interactive as well. The kids love interacting with the toys as well. We love seeing the creative side come out during play.
For a stronger magnet for older kids, we loved Construction Magnets. Not only did the kids enjoy a good build, but this had some extra pieces the kids can use for building. The bulldozer attachment is a favorite.
In terms of uniqueness, I have to say, Hub takes top. Not only is the quality amazing, but they combine the fun of magnets with the skill of gears. The two together make for endless educational fun.
When it comes to the older kids, they are ready for build larger structures. This Princess castle was a big hit. It helped them not only reach for more complex structures, but the windows and accessories, gives this set an architectural feel.
The last set we loved is from Goobi. I liked this set for two reasons. First, it came with corners to help the magnets connect. This can be useful as the magnets tend to roll around on the magnetic spheres. The second thing I love is the case. It is the perfect storage solution.
