They have done it once again, they introduced us to Magformers. I can not begin to tell you how much one of my boys LOVES the Magformers Rainbow Set we received. He has spent HOURS and HOURS putting together different shapes, he makes rockets, stars, balls, houses, it's unbelievable! Each piece in the set of 62 pieces (there are sets of different sizes) has a magnet on each side that allows you to form 3D shapes when putting the pieces together. The set comes with a book of great ideas on shapes you can build and gets you thinking about how to line up the shapes flat in order to fold them into a 3D model, once he (at 5 years old) got a handle on that in a matter of minutes, it's just awesome what he's been making.
He's also taught our little friend we watch in the mornings how to build these 3D shapes, she's gone from jumbling them up to making her own cubes and balls with a few lessons from my son! The transfer of knowledge between these 4 and 5 year olds are a wonder to behold and I am just so happy to be a part of it.
The Magformers are colourful, fun, easy to clean up, and leads to so much knowledge of 3D shapes, how things are built, referencing shapes, sizes and structures, it's just awesome. I love that each piece is a different colour on each side, it's just adds to the cool look.
