7 Ways My Kids Use Magnetic Tiles (one of the best construction toys for kids!)

3.1K Shares

There are many construction toys for kids out there, but magnetic tiles are easily the most popular with my own two children. Here are 7 ways we use them…

Building Brilliance Magnetic Shapes are a set of construction toys that my kids have been using and loving  for the past month and a half years now.

And brilliant is right.

These magnetic tiles are an awesome kids construction toy.

The magnet shapes are made of sturdy, brightly colored translucent plastic that beautifully catches and filters both sunlight as well as artificial light. We especially like to use ours on our simple DIY light table.

They are brilliant in more sense than just that one, though.

Any toy, construction or otherwise, that captures my kids’ imagination day after day after day for over a month is brilliant. (I know many parents would agree with that assessment.)

And it’s not just my kids, but every kid who comes to our house.

These magnetic tiles are so open-ended that they get used in all kinds of ways–not just for building castles and towers. With magnets along each of the edges, kids can construct any number of interesting shapes and the magnets help hold the tiles together. Brilliant!

Construction Toys for Kids - 7 Ways my Kids Use Magnetic Tiles

Here are 7 Ways My Kids Use Their Magnetic Tiles

  1. Construction
  2. Pretend Play
  3. Light Table Play
  4. 2-D and 3-D Design
  5. Color Mixing
  6. Exploring Magnetic Properties
  7. Building and Learning about Shapes

I want to go through this list one by one and share pictures of each in action…

Construction Toys for Kids Magnetic Tiles

#1 – Construction with Magnetic Tiles

This is the biggie, and obviously what the magnetic tiles were made for. I love how the variety of shapes plus the magnetic aspect of the tiles allow the kids to really get creative with their building.

#2 – Pretend Play with Magnetic Tiles

I wasn’t expecting this at all, but the magnetic tiles have been used nonstop for a variety of pretend play scenarios. Besides buildings and castles that are then incorporated into pretend play, they’ve been used for roads, slides, animal carousels, barns, fences, and, as you can see in the photo above, food stalls.

#3 – Light Table Play and Exploration with Magnetic Tiles

Yes, a lot of the play and building with the tiles have been on the light table, just because they are just so lovely in the light.

#4 – 2-D and 3-D Design with Magnetic Tiles

While a lot of the designing with the magnetic tiles has been three-dimensional, there’s been a fair amount of two-dimensional designing done as well.

#5 Color Mixing and Color Sorting with Magnetic Tiles

Pretty self explanatory, right?

#6 Exploring Magnetic Properties with Magnetic Tiles

How close can you get the magnets before they attract each other and click together?

#7 – Learning about Shapes with Magnetic Tiles

Love this! The 2-dimensional shapes of the tiles–triangles, squares, rectangles, and trapezoids–can be combined to form 3-dimensional shapes, including pyramids, cubes, and prisms.

I initially thought the price tag on these Building Brilliance Magnetic Tiles was a little steep. But I’m a convert. These are completely worth it!

My kids even combine them with legos and other construction toys!

You may have seen similar magnetic tile building products with different names, such as Magna-Tiles . I haven’t tried them myself, so don’t know how they compare, but can say that these particular Building Brilliance Magnetic Tiles are well made and seriously awesome. Plus their price tag is lower than the others I’ve seen (thanks, Discount School Supply!).

Discount School Supply, is one of my blog sponsors, and sent me a box of the Building Brilliance Magnetic Tiles for free to try out and review (at my request). But as always, all opinions expressed are my own.

Update: We’ve since found 3 fun NEW ways to use these magnetic tiles!

    We have Magnatiles and they are one of the favorite play toys around here. We have some of those little mice with magnets in their feet (not sure what they are exactly – we got them at a garage sale) and the kids love playing with them together. I’ve also seen Magformers but I haven’t seen these that they have at Discount School Supply. I like the trapezoid shapes, Magnatiles don’t have those!

    The only way my daughter plays with her various construction toys – legos, wooden blocks, geo magnets, etc – is to mix em up and have one big pretend play scenario after she has built whatever it is she is building! And cardboard – there is always some cardboard involved. I have to confess that sometimes I do wish there wasn’t such a big mess to clear up but I really enjoy fostering her inventive nature and creativity. These magnets look great – we haven’t tried this kind at all.

    I first saw these tiles at the Children’s Creativity museum in SF when my son was 3 ½ years old and we played with them for a loooong time. The museum had metal walls around the playspace where the tiles could stick (like a refrigerator and you could build 2D-3D creations which came out of the wall so it was a great idea. I also saw how collaborative it was as many kids could work together. Great product would love to own one!

    This product is pure genius. Perfect for imaginative play and builds dexterity and a child’s thought process. This grandmama would get pure joy out of watching my granchildren play with these. Well, to be honest, I would enjoy playing with them as well!

    If we could only have one toy in this house it would be magna tiles! Would love to win these for a friend!

    I have seen these tiles in my daughter’s daycare but now that I have read your post I am really wanting to purchase a set for our house. What a fantastic rainy day activity! Thanks!

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha
    plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

    These dragons are sort of a mix between the great red coloring of the sandfire
    dragons and the bright gold coloring of the gold dragons.
    An infection of parasites however, can be a
    bit trickier to treat. For this you’ll want to do some research to find out what the optimal diet is.

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this blog.
    He used to be entirely right. This put up truly made my day.
    You can not consider simply how so much time I had spent for this
    information! Thanks!

    Very well done & written!
    I’ve just starte writing myself in the past few weeks and realized lot of people simply
    rework old content butt add very little of worth.
    It’s terrific tto read a beneficial article of some genuine value to your readers.

    It’s going on the list of things I need too emulate as a new blogger.
    Visitfor engagement and material value are king.

    Many good thoughts; you have most certainly got on my
    list of writers tto follow!

    Continue the terrific work!
    All the best,
    Mel
