Building with shapes, recognizing colors, ingenuity, creativeness, geometry… learning math has never been so fun! Or should I say playing with math?
We have had a set of Magformers for years and my kids have never tired of them. There are so many ways you can play with them.
- On the fridge
- Experimenting with magnets
- sorting shapes or colors
- and more!
The Magformers set we have has wheels and my kids love to create all kinds of autos and then smush them or pull them apart and make something new. They will play on their own or work together for hours. I love to see what they come up with and listen to them discussing how to make their creations better.
These are one of my favorite toys that the kids have.
Building with Magformers encourages children to use their imagination and show their creativity while developing skills and knowledge critical to their developmental success. Magformers uses high quality “always attracting” magnetic technology that provides endless constructional play.

Magformers are super powerful shapes that transform into colorful geometric builds that adhere on every edge with magnets. Build simple forms from houses to rockets that spin freely to ensure that every side attracts to other pieces. The possibilities are endless with this 30-piece sets which include 18 squares and 12 triangles!
“I definitely recommend Magformers for a few reasons. I love how sturdy they are, the creations don’t fall apart! You can do a lot with a few pieces, we have the smallest set and it has already provided hours of play. I love the colors and the way you can add other sets onto your first set to keep expanding. The appeal to young and older kids is a big plus, it’s a great family toy. So much learning happens through play and this toy is no exception!” -Carisa, Blogger from 1+1+1=1
This is a great toy for children with special needs.
“Focus on colors. Combine the two shapes when introducing colors. Begin by only introducing one color by laying the shapes flat on a table. Name the color. Eventually, have the child sort colors and connect shapes of the same color. Keep the shapes flat as each shape is double-sided and possesses two different colors.” – Gabriella V., Special Needs Homeschool Blogger
Do your kids like superheroes? They can build a superhero robot! Maybe they like spacemen instead. This robot kit comes with a guide book that has directions for 8 different robots for your little engineer. Or, maybe your child dances to the beat of her own drum and would prefer to use her imagination instead of a set of rules. Your child can even create their own robot character since the possibilities are endless with Magformers! Once they are built, their robot can walk at two different speeds.
Magformers are a top educational toy in my book. Such a fun way to play with math concepts as well as get creative! Have you had the chance to play with them?
