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...
The My First 30 Set contains 12 triangles and 18 squares, as well as a beautifully printed book teaching children to match colours and shapes, and to learn the names of simple objects.
The Set also contains numerous cards of different things that can be built with pieces in the set.
My First sets are compatible with every other Magformers Set. The difference is in the colour scheme. My First pieces come in a vivid crayon (solid) colour scheme which are more attractive for younger children than the transparent colour pieces that are found in the standard sets.
