There wasn’t too much packaging, so not much to recycle. It could have done with more instructions on how to make some of the structures. My 4 year old had a go at building some of them, but needed help from an adult, which frustrated him. This is stated as suitable from 1 year plus and I feel it is appropriate for my 16 month old. I feel it is a great concept and that it easy for children to get the grip of. Both of my children have found it quite easy to use. Both my children found it easy to hold and build with and have had hours of fun with it. Both of my children have created many designs and have spent hours doing it. I think that the aspect of these blocks being magnetic is a great aspect. We have only come across one other set of toys which does this in a different way and also is for 1 year plus children. These blocks have definitely help with both of my children’s fine motor skills. We have all had fun with these blocks. My 4 year old has had great fun playing with his younger brother with them. My 16 month old has played for hours with them and keeps going back. My 4 year old has also had hours of fun with them and again has gone back to them many times. I agree this toy will last for years due to the design. The quality of the product is high and they are well made. I think that it is value for money.I think that the product is a great concept and well made. The blocks are easy to clean. I would probably start with a smaller set because it is a lot of money to pay if your child doesn’t like it. I would recommend as there is so much that can be done with these blocks. Both my children have enjoyed playing with the blocks and it is well made. Our overall experience with this product has been positive because of its overall concept. The children have both enjoyed playing with them and it has challenged them both to build. Unlike other blocks they stay together really well so they can be built into a tower, but are not so strong magnetic that they don’t come apart if they are not supported correctly. Susan Marlborough – Ruairidh and Foster – 4 Years & 16 Months

A little smaller than expected. Packaging is a very thin plastic which is not very durable. Does the job however for the price would have expected something a little more robust and something that will last to protect the product for years to come. The toy is pretty self-explanatory so instructions are not required, however there is a useful sheet which shows suggested things you can make with the blocks which Finley and Layla have loved to try and make. I do think it was age appropriate for my children. There are no small bits and no risk of choking. The blocks are perfect for small hands; I therefore feel this is a suitable age rating. I think this is a fantastic toy for children of both sexes and of all ages. It is a great toy to use their imagination to build and create various things. Both Layla and Finley were able to grasp the concept straight away. The toy is very easy to use. The blocks are the perfect size for little hands and are easy to hold and build with. They have had hours of fun creating various designs. Some designs were made using the suggestions and others made using their imagination. It is a fantastic feature. The blocks are magnetic on each side making it easy to create various designs. It has been a great tool to have to improve and develop my children’s fine motor skills. ~These blocks have been used by my son (2), daughter (5), cousins and us as parents! When the product was received my children spent a good hour building various designs. They have used the product on many occasions and it has become a favourite in the house. This will last for years as the product itself is robust and durable. It’s just the packaging that’s lets it down in this respect, but this is not a big issue as the product can be stored without. Excellent durable design. Although I feel this is a fantastic toy, I would be very disappointed if I had paid the rrp price of £59.99. The cubes them self are a lot smaller than I expected, I feel £20-£30 would be a price I would feel would be good value for Money.I really liked how it uses your child’s imagination. I would buy this but not for the rrp. I would be happy to spend up to £30 for this. I would recommend as a great toy for all ages and all the family can get involved. A lovely toy which provides hours of entertainment. Overall I feel this toy is a fantastic creation and my children have had hours of fun with it. It can be used / played with by people of all ages. It is a great toy which uses your child’s imagination and helps develop fine motor skills. Highly recommended. Charlotte Evans – Finley & Layla 2 & 5 Years

Simply packaging but could have been a little more child friendly in appearance. Instructions are very easy to understand. I feel it is suitable for an older child who would have more understanding of how magnets work and shapes that can be made. My son just stacked them up in a tower. I thought the concept was good and not something I’ve seen before I just thought it was suitable for a slightly older age child. My son did not use the product to its full capabilities as he was too young to understand the vast shapes that could be built. He only stacked the block onto of each other and enjoyed knocking them down again. Very easy to hold as the size is great but again building more difficult shapes was a struggle but basic stacking was easy. My child didn’t understand how to complete the different designs as he was a little too young but enjoyed stacking them high. Great idea and not one I’ve seen before.I think for my son a little too young to help improve motor skills. We did build together with mum and dad getting involved. This did keep him entertained for short periods of time. I think this will stand the test of time due to quality and personally I feel more suitable for 3-5 year old’s. Quality was very good no complaints. Personally I think it is overpriced. I thought the concept was very good for an older child. I would recommend this product to an older child if the price was cheaper around £25-£30. The overall score I have given is based on the trail with my child. However I feel this product would be more suited for 3 plus who are able to create more complex shapes than my son. I feel the concept is good and unique. If used to its full potential I feel it would definitely improve fine motor skills. My son enjoyed stacking the blocks high and knocking them down. It entertained my son for short bursts of time but not something that he would sit and use for long periods. Alison Rickards – Jacob 2 Years 2 Months
