Magformers consists of bright, colourful, and fun educational shapes. Each piece contains encapsulated 360-degree rotating magnets that always rotate to attract to the magnet encapsulated in the next shape.
Magformers are easy to assemble and disassemble when compared to blocks that insert or interlock to assemble. Rather than the usual stacking or interlocking block, Magformers can be connected in any direction in 3D. This is due to the powerful rotating magnets encapsulated within deliberately placed contact points within each piece!
The result is that the shapes connect and fit with each other perfectly so that your child (or your inner child!) can design and build any structure, vehicle, robot, animal, plant, ball, shape... in fact the possibilities are limited only by imagination...
Magformers' World Set helps children to learn about, and build, animals and vehicles that are suitable different environments, from the jungle, mountain, desert, to the sea.
Included shapes and accessories are specifically designed for that purpose. For example, the ‘tank’ / ‘caterpillar’ wheels are suitable for building desert vehicles, whilst the larger wheels are suitable for jungle vehicles. Similarly, the single ‘motorbike’ wheel can be used to build mountain vehicles, whilst the propeller can be used to build a submarine, boat or other sea vehicles. All while learning about how geometric shapes come together to form an object.
The set contains 13 different shapes and 14 accessories, including a remote controlled power engine block (75 pieces in total). The remote controlled power engine block means that kids can have their creations move!
Also, included is a booklet with ideas relating to the vehicles and animals that can be constructed. As with all MAGFORMERS® booklets, the idea is for the child to work out how to build the model by looking at the guided ‘stages’, rather than following ‘step by step’ instructions. Helping kids to think about the shapes and number of pieces involved in making the model. Importantly, it also requires the child to develop rotational skills, by trying to work out which shapes would be on the unseen side.
