When they were little the kids were so easy to buy toys for and the toys kept them amused for ages. These days (the kids are 6 and 9) the kids have almost grown out of toys, they just want computer games or iPads, they happily play outside for hours with friends but in the house it’s just electronics. This is why I was so surprised how thrilled they were with the geomag sets we were sent and how long they spent playing with them!
What is geomag?
Geomag is a Swiss-made magnetic construction toy.
Each kit comes with magnetic metal rods and steel balls, the panel pack cane with loads of plastic panels which brought strength to the structures and the mechanics set come with cogs which can be used to build moving structures.
These sets are great for understanding magnetics and engineering structures, real STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths)subjects, or just for having fun (not everything has to be about learning). Although each pack comes with an instruction pack suggesting models and showing you how to build them, my kids most enjoyed using their imaginations and just building rather than following instructions (that is their reaction to Lego as well, they would rather than a box of bits than a booklet and set instructions).
We absolutely love these sets. They help children of all ages develop their hand/eye coordination, motor skills and problem solving skills. But also encourages creativity through the science of magnetic construction.
The sets all work together so you can grow their collection and the bigger structures you can build.
Geomag sets are sold in Smyths and The Entertainer.
