My initial impression was that it was a huge set and contained many more pieces than I was expecting! The pieces themselves looked strong and sturdy and my children and I were looking forward to trying it. I thought the concept was exciting – to combine construction with problem solving and creativity – and I thought that it would be appealing to my children. I did not find the instructions particularly helpful, especially for children, and my children ended up simply building using their imagination rather than following the instructions. I also did not know where the stickers were supposed to go or if they even had a set place as there did not seem to be any mention of them in the instructions. My 4 year old found the pieces easy to hold but found it quite frustrating when her design collapsed. After a bit of practise (although it took some encouragement for her to persevere) she started finding it a little easier and she became more aware of the need to create more support for higher structures. My 8 year old also found it a little difficult to make structures that were strong enough to stay in place without collapsing but my children are not natural problem solvers so hopefully in time this product would help them with this. While the magnetic attraction is very strong and the pieces do not come apart from each other, the structures do sometimes cave in if there is not sufficient support throughout the design. My children enjoyed being creative and made a variety of different designs with the blocks. I think they enjoyed this so much because the product offers open ended play opportunities and so they were able to create a range of structures to use in their pretend play without it being ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.  My children were already confident with colours though we did have a lot of conversations regarding shapes when using the pieces to build a range of 3D structures using 2D shape pieces. I did not find the colours particularly interesting and so I do not think a lot of learning about colours would take place from playing with this product. My children’s imagination was definitely sparked through the many open-ended possibilities for play that this product has to offer. The stickers allowed for alphabet related stacking as well as numerical. No two plays were the exact same and so I would agree that the toy keeps children interested and entertained through the opportunity to build a range of different designs every time.  My children were entertained when playing with this toy as there were so many different pieces included that enabled them to build a range of different standalone structures or alternatively to work on just the one structure. It was something that allowed for independent play as well as teamwork. My children found it fascinating that the magnetic fields were strong enough to hold such a large and interesting structure together. Playing with the toy sparked their scientific curiosity although I think they perhaps took for granted the way in which magnetic fields work as they did not seem keen to learn any more about this area. I felt this toy was perfectly safe for my children to use and play with. The pieces were strong, durable and large enough to be played with unsupervised. My children played with this toy 2-3 times per week for around an hour each time. My children played with this toy mostly in the living room on the floor as it required a smooth, flat surface and plenty of space to build and expand structures. I agree that this toy is educational as there is a vast range of opportunities to learn about science and maths and it also allows them to be creative and use their problem solving skills to build strong stand alone structures that do not collapse. I agree this would be an excellent toy for all of these childcare settings as the toy allows for several children to work together and STEM learning is an area which is currently at the forefront of education and it is vital for children to develop in these areas. While I do believe the toy is suitable for children of 3 years and older from a safety perspective and with adult guidance, I think older children would get the most out of it. My 4 year old was able to use the toy safely and she built a range of simple structures with my support, but my 8 year old was more self-sufficient in problem solving in order to create more advanced and interesting structures independently. I liked the open ended range of possibilities that this toy had to offer. Children can create whatever they want to and let their imaginations take the lead. My child liked using the tracks to create a ball run, particularly one with a range of twists and turns. I thought the toy was of excellent quality. The pieces all felt sturdy and strong. I feel that although it is quite expensive for a toy there is so many different pieces included in the pack so I would agree with it being fair to good value for money. I would consider buying these although perhaps I would buy a smaller set and build this up over time to save money. I would recommend this to family and friends who do not mind paying a lot for a great quality item. Overall I feel that this toy offers a fantastic range of open ended possibilities for children of all ages. I think that it would particularly suitable for schools to use for small group challenges and independent classroom play. I feel it would also be good to use as part of STEM learning and therefore in STEM clubs. My children did enjoy this toy but are perhaps not experienced enough with construction toys or perhaps it is the fact that they are not great at problem solving but they did find the toy quite difficult to build what they wanted to. I can see the vast opportunities for some more logical thinkers and as a teacher I will definitely take this toy into school for my class to experience. Eva Thomson – Lucy & Poppy – 4 & 8 Years

This arrived in a bright colourful box and the pictures on the box looked good. I thought it was interesting. Wanted to see which age it best fitted so three of my children had a go. Thought it was good idea for them to use their own imagination. Didn’t really have any instructions to it. I guess that’s the whole point for kids to use their minds. All of the parts were really easy to hold as they were a large size and even the balls were a good size. Even though all the blocks are magnetic unfortunately for us the structure did collapse plenty of times which even for an adult was annoying. It did get them to be created and they enjoyed stacking them up as well as building something for them. I had the task to try and recreate the one on the box which wasn’t very easy. My youngest already knew hist colours and shapes so this did not enhance his knowledge. This does come with a lot of accessories including racks, puzzles and stickers.  However my children just enjoyed stacking them as he clips were a bit tricky for them. This did keep them entertained and they loved the magnetic aspect of this toy.  One of the children went around the house to see what else was magnetic to attach these pieces to them. I would say the design is fairly good but not so much the plastic as we have already had some break and this ended up with the broken bits having sharp edges. My children play with this every day. They mostly played with this in the living room as we have plenty of floor space. I do agree this is a good educational toy and certainly helps build their own imagination. Funny to be asked would I think this suitable for Nursery schools as it turns out it’s already in my children’s reception class which my 5 year old was in and now my 4 year old is in. Building with magnets yes ideal for 3 years plus.  However, building with the other parts no they are very hard to connect even myself at 32 struggled to get them in. I loved the fact this toy kept all the children entertained and they all played together.  Peter loved the magnets.  Penelope loved the magnets building and enjoys knocking the down.  Christopher found it a good stress reliever, very fun to watch the ball go down the ramps and build towers. Thick plastic great and strong, thin plastic tunnels rubbish very hard to clip and snap easily. This is a good concept for a toy but I personally feel the price is far too high.  I would not buy this as the tunnels which are thinner plastic snapped easily. I have mentioned it to family and friends but I have also highlighted the price. Kids enjoyed the simple thing of stacking them up rather than making something easily fell apart so wasn’t strong enough to hold anything up.

Was over the moon after seeing what I was going to receive and so was my little girl.  I really liked the idea of this it was a chance to see what my little girl could come up with. Instructions very straight forward.  I would see her having trouble making some the structures to build and  how they went together but after showing her she was fine doing it herself.  I was finding that it wasn’t as strong as it said it was. Even after trying to build what was in the instructions.  At first in the small scale it would hold itself up but after putting more together it would not hold shape well. My daughter is aware of her colours so this was used more as a toy to build structures.  This did keep her entertained and was good to see the contents supplied including tracks, puzzles and stickers.  At first this did capture her attention but has not maintained her interest. It was good to introduce her to the fascination of magnetic material.  I would say this toys was  90% safe a few of the clips would break off easily only very small bits. She played with the complete set once and then just used certain parts of this toy to play with her other toys.  Mainly played with this in the living room. I would say this could be educational but for an older child. I think it could do well in a nursery but you would need to have somewhere to keep all the pieces so none went missing.  I know this is suitable for 3 years plus, but personally I feel it would be better suited for 6-7 year olds.  I really liked the idea of building anything and making it however you want but limited on ideas because of size.  My daughter liked the balls and numbers the best.  This is built to a very high standard but a few clips would break off when changing shapes. If this toy sparks your child’s creativity and they love building then yes it does represent good value. I would not buy this only because it was not a hit with my daughter. I would recommend to family and friends with children in an older age group.  I really like the idea of this toy.  I do think the supports could be better maybe a pole instead of a flat peace.
