We have had so much fun with the magnetic tiles for kids that joined our family 6 months ago. As construction toys for kids go, they are absolutely wonderful! My kids and their friends have played more (and longer) with the magnetic shapes than with any other toy in the house, hands down.
(If we were talking outside the house, it would have to be the hammock which is not a kids’ toy at all, but gets more use than anything else outdoors. Who would’ve guessed?! The kids do everything from swing and read books in it to hang upside down and practice flips and other gymnastics-type moves.)
But back to the magnetic shapes for now…
If a friend came to me and asked for a toy recommendation for their kids right now, I’d say buy a set of magnetic tiles.
I am about to order a second set and have to restrain myself from adding a third to my shopping cart.
We like them that much. (And according to some of you, the magnetic tiles get consistent use many years (and kids) later. Good to know…)
