Geomag Mechanics Loops And Turns Magnetic Construction Set – 130 Pieces

It’s time for some construction fun with the Geomag Mechanics Loops And Turns Magnetic Construction Set – 130 Pieces.

Mechanics Gravity Magnetic Track harnesses the invisible forces of magnetism and gravity through original and surprising means. The spheres inside the circuit are set in motion by an innovative magnetic cannon that uses the force of attraction of the accelerating magnet.

Developed with expert players in mind, the new construction system is based on an innovative “gravity motor” which uses the weight of the Geomag spheres to kickstart the mechanisms and movements of the Geomag Mechanics structures.

The motion is provided by the invisible forces of Gravity and Magnetism, without using electricity or batteries. Mechanics Gravity is a STEM product that can truly stimulate curiosity and inspire to learn more about science.

Product features:
Includes 130x mechanical elements, instructions
Load the sphere to start playing, shoot the sphere around the track and quickly reload the canon to keep playing
Made from recycled plastic
Build structures with the power of magnets
Contains 130 pieces
Suitable for ages 8 years +

Nice sturdy box good quality. A great concept as it involves planning.The instructions were easy to understand as they were diagrams. My daughter followed the instructions really easily. She found the pieces easy to assemble. She did enjoy it as it helped with problem solving skills. This helped her with perseverance especially if it didn’t go the way she planned. It helped her with patience to try again. She did enjoy finding out about gravity and magnetism. It is different and goes back to basics of working things out and experimenting. She tried most of the designs and was pleased when they went the way she hoped they would. Definitely opened her eyes to how powerful magnets are and the science behind them. A great STEM activity as it combines science, engineering and problem solving. She didn’t deviate too much from the instruction leaflet. But she did tweak some designs slightly. My daughter is very inquisitive naturally so this set really peaked her interest in magnets. She enjoys putting things together and knowing how gates/ tubes can influence how the magnets work. She played with the set in total about 10 times over the period of testing. She used it at home on the table so she had plenty of space. This did keep her entertained and kept her off the electronic devices. Her younger sister wasn’t interested but I joined in on few occasions. She liked the fact it helped her with her engineering problem solving skills. I liked the fact it was educational but also fun. The quality of the set is great all the pieces are very sturdy so you can clip them together lots of times. I have my eyes on one of the expansion packs to further increase the capabilities of the set. I think aimed at 8 years plus is the ideal age to understand the instructions. I think this is good value as its the main set to get you into the range so there is lots of scope to experiment with the tracks. Now we have used this I am considering getting one of the expansion packs to prolong the experience. I would recommend as it is a gateway to understanding science and engineering. It’s a product all the family can enjoy. It’s a great value educational toy for all the family. A great value educational product. Encourages problem solving skills understanding science and engineering. A product the whole family can enjoy. Claire Sweter-Millar – Natalie 10 years

Over all I thought it was a very good bit of kit. Very good if wanting to understand more about mechanics. Some bits were easier to understand then others I did have to help on some parts. My son found the pieces very easy to use. He loved building the circuit and run the spheres. Would definitely recommend this toy. He was confused at the beginning but definitely understands more about movement gravity now. Absolutely loved the motion aspect and the logics behind gravity and magnetism. He’s only made one design at the moment but will be making a different one soon. Opened his eyes to the science of magnets. I do agree this is a good introduction to STEM activities. However depending on ability more help maybe needed. We have not tried creating own designs yet. Unfortunately my boy is a maths lover but he definitely enjoyed doing this so hopefully he can enjoy science as well. He did enjoy the creativity and engineering aspect of this toy. He used it often for the first week or so and now it’s just occasionally. Would set this up in his bedroom. It did keep him entertained for a short while but he does get bored very quickly. I enjoyed playing with him. My son liked the fact he managed to do most of the structure himself. I liked the fact that putting it together mainly on his own showed him he can do it and follow instructions just has to concentrate. The quality of his toy is very good. This was age appropriate for my son. This is very good value for money. I would purchase this set. I would recommend to family members with children of a suitable age. Would definitely recommend very interesting for all. Emma Henbrey – Patrick 10 years

Nicely boxed, and rattled which is always exciting. Loved it as there is something very pleasing about watching a ball do a loop. I struggled with the instructions. I’m technically minded (ex-stage manager, like I know how to build stuff) but both me and Cora got really confused. But we eventually cracked it. Coraline struggled to build it. She was a little afraid of snapping the plastic by pushing too hard, and I did have to help quite a lot. She didn’t enjoy building the circuit (wandered off half way through), but she loved running the spheres. Which is kind of the ultimate point of it! She did find it interesting, and trying to explain the physics behind it was made a little easier when she could see it happening in front of her, seeing it in motion. She loved the motion aspect of this toy and understanding gravity and magnetism. It has been very popular with her. We were both under the impression that only one design could be made by this set. It was a great opportunity to discuss like poles repelling, unlike poles attracting. And the fact magnets have poles. I love anything that promotes STEM for my kids. It was the perfect way to get my kid engaged. She was less thrilled about the building of the course, but once it was built she wanted to play. I mean I’m not like “play with this, it’s educational ” but I am happy when she’s playing with it as I know she’s solidifying her understanding of a bunch of physics principles. We only created the one design as we thought that’s all we could build without additional sets. Absolutely increased her interest in physics and science. It also challenged my scant knowledge of what principles were at work to explain it to her. We talked about gravity, momentum, mass, velocity, inertia. Although she didn’t get creative with the track itself, she did enjoy commentating on what happening with the sphere and trying to see what would happen if she didn’t put the spheres in the track at the correct point. This set has been very popular and has come out every weekend. It got slightly sidelined over the holiday period, but is a consistent favourite. This set is played with in the living room, on the floor. This would keep her entertained for about 20 minutes at a time. I think the metal spheres hurtling around the track was her favourite part, and trying to work out the why and how. I liked the fact she can play with it and I don’t feel like she’s rotting her mind! I was a little bit worried about snapping bits when we were building it, but quickly figured it was much more robust than I thought. I would definitely look at other sets and will be recommending them when asked for gift ideas for my eldest. Age suitability was appropriate, although I don’t think she found constructing the track as much fun as I’d hoped. It is good value but quite expensive. I would consider buying it, but I’d be more likely to ask for it to be bought as a gift as it’s a little too expensive for me. Definitely would recommend. I know a couple of kids who’d love it, and have recommended it. It’s a great product, that really helps with applied physics, without being like “this toy is educational” and preachy. It’s fun, like, really fun. We found building the track a little frustrating, but once we had, the fun really began. Trying to work out what forces/principles are at work, and explaining them, was awesome. It’s a great product that my kid really enjoys playing with. Kristen Platt – Coraline 9 Years
