Magformers 62-piece Magnetic Deluxe Designer Set
My 31/2 year old grandaughter loves the Magformers blocks. My goal in purchasing a toy is to foster their imagination, creativity, and no batteries! This set is perfect. As she grows, I will expand the collection.
my grandchildren's favorite
This is the third set I have purchased---my grandchildren have played with them from age one. Now I have 4 between 1 and 6 and they all want them when they come over. They get very creative with these magnets and always love to show off what they have built--a few grown-ups get into them as well. Love these!
I am a Kindergarten teacher working with underprivileged students. I have eight sets of these blocks in my classroom and am buying another set today. These blocks serve so many purposes - Creative Play, Socialization Skills while working with classmates, Three Dimensional thinking, Knowledge of geometric shapes and most of all FUN! My kids give squeals of delight when I tell them it's magnetic block time. This is a truly wonderful product!
Great for the Imagination!
I have bought Magformers for the grandchildren in several different sets and they are used often when they visit. I Love to see the different things they come up with. My grandchildren are aged from 9 to 4 and they all use them. Yes the packages are small but what can be done with them is what counts. Thinking about order this set also!
People who leave bad reviews for theses sets must not get it. Yes, it is a small package of plastic magnetic shapes, but once you get it out your kids will have hours of fun for probably years to come. We bought two sets three years ago and my boys have played with them all along and they are 5 years apart in age. That is why I am coming back for more. My youngest son likes them the most, he is more of a builder. He can build all that they do on T.V. plus endless more. Maybe the compact package seems small and simple, but the creativity and the fun and endless possibilities completely out ways any of that. You see, you can build three dimensional things with them, but when your done playing you can just stack the pieces up and they take up a tiny space on your shelf. These are truly one of the coolest and imaginative toys we have ever had. And you wont find these at Walmart. They are only sold at select stores that carry special thinking toys, and they come in very small sets for high prices!
my grandson loved this product, encourages creativity. I even played with it for awhile. lol
My granddaughters were very creative and enjoyed their Christmas while playing with the magformers. I think they are a great gift. My granddaughters enjoyed being creative. They are also very beautiful - they look just like me.
Perfect for grandchildren
I have five grandchildren, ages 1-8, and since buying the Magformers, this is all they play with when they visit. I even catch their parents playing with them. I'm ordering another set, so when they're all here together, there will be plenty to go around.
I received this Magformer set today. The box is about 6" long x about 3" deep. The pieces are so small I would never give this as a gift. I can't believe anyone would pay over $90 for these rinky dink pieces of plastic. They are going back tomorrow. Very disappointed.
Names Of Shapes
All of the pieces need to be educationally correct with the correct name used. Since you correctly identified the trapezoid the diamond shaped piece is called a rhombus.
