THE MAGNETIC GAME, A SPECIAL GAME!
magnetic toys are educational and fun for children, they are part of the world of educational games. By playing with magnets, they learn science, mathematics, physics and much more. There are many types of magnets. It is important to choose the magnets that are right for your child.
There are magnetic construction toys such as blocks, sticks, balls, puzzles and many other magnetic elements.We can also think of letter magnets that children can play with. This will help them learn letters and form words for ages 3-8. All of these magnetic toys are good STIM construction toys. Children will play with them in different ways for years. Magnets teach children math and science and allow them to explore cause and effect in a concrete way. Certain sets of educational magnets are also designed for babies.
Your little budding engineer can use magnetic games to stimulate spatial reasoning, creativity and critical thinking. It's even more fun when they can combine different games, for example a game of magnetic balls (Magnet-Me™) with a game of blocks magnetic (MagnetGo™). Certain magnetic puzzles also allow us to create our dear little ones' favorite animals.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MAGNETIC PLAY?
Here's what you need to know about these magnetic toys as well as other things kids can do with them. It is important to learn about magnetic construction toys and magnetic play before purchasing a game.
Let's take a look at the differences between magnetic blocks, magnetic balls, sticks and magnetic toys so you can make the best choice for your child.
- Magnetic blocks
- Magnetic balls
- Other magnetic games
✔ Magnetic blocks
When you think of magnetic blocks, you may think of magnetic cubes, like wooden blocks. However, most of today's magnetic blocks look more like tiles.
They usually come in the form of a brightly colored deck that you can see through. The shapes are made of durable plastic. Each piece is magnetic. These tiles feature powerful magnets that help the pieces hold together. Children will learn shapes and colors while playing with these blocks. The magnetic tiles and blocks sets include triangles, squares and rectangles because they have a straight edge. The idea is for kids to match the sides so they stick and hold together.
- Includes different shapes
The sets include different sizes of each shape, that is, two or three different sized triangles, rectangles and squares. Some large sets include hexagons. Some sets include wheels so children can build vehicles and machines. This keeps children interested and allows them to create and build different things. Children also learn shapes and sorting.
Children can build cubes or pyramids by color if they wish. They can build kingdoms and towers vertically (ChateauxReves™) or lower and horizontally. The playing possibilities are endless.
As with most magnetic toys, the more they have, the more they can build but be sure to do so according to his age so he doesn't get overwhelmed with pieces either.
- Magnetic blocks are fun
It is therefore important to buy enough parts.Think of it like other construction toys, like LEGO bricks. The more they have, the more they can create with it. Find a game you like. Once your child has shown interest and you know it is a quality product, purchase additional pieces if you can.
Most magnetic block games include instructions for ideas. However, children will enjoy building their own creations. Like all magnetic toys, these games promote creativity and imagination. They are educational and will help children hone their motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
This is one of the best magnetic toys because it probably poses fewer choking hazards than other toys with smaller parts. Magnetic blocks are larger and suitable for younger children. For this reason, it is a great way to introduce STEM learning to young children.
Like most magnetic toys, teenagers and adults will also enjoy playing.
✔ Magnetic construction sticks
There is another type of magnetic construction set. You may see them called magnetic building block sets and magnetic building stick sets. These are colorful magnetic sticks of different sizes with which children build.
They are educational and fun. However, it is important to note that smaller sticks can pose a choking hazard. Many games also come with magnetic balls.
Children use their imagination to create structures. The age range is wide: young children to pre-teens will have fun building. Even teenagers playing with their younger siblings as well as adults will show their imagination while building with these magnetic construction toys.
These sticks contain powerful magnets, so the creations hold together well. This means kids won't get frustrated.
Most magnetic construction stick sets come in multiple colors. Children can have fun learning colors and sorting them as they wish.
Like all magnetic toys, children will develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Playing with these toys encourages spatial thinking.
Other advantages of these types of magnetic blocks and sticks are their small size. They don't take up much space. It is also a portable toy that children can play while traveling.
It is important to look for games with a minimum number of pieces. You may need to purchase more than one game. As with many construction toys, the more pieces kids have to create, the better. They will be able to build more complex pieces if they have more sticks.
✔ The magnetic ball
There are two types of magnetic balls. Both are easy to store and don't take up much space. Magnetic balls promote spatial thinking as well as imagination and creativity. Children refine their motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Depending on the magnetic game you buy, your child will have fun sorting, building, creating and using their imagination.
Best of all, when the kids outgrow the magnets - which won't be for years, because even older kids love them - you and your kids can use them in interesting projects.
✔ Other magnetic games

-The magnets for angling are a great classic and so appreciated by children but also babies. For this type of magnetic game, the child especially likes to test his skill. Magnetic fishing is a very fun activity mixing wood and magnets!
Magnetic line fishing offers children a fun, interactive activity that stimulates their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills while keeping them active in the great outdoors.
This activity arouses their curiosity and teaches them patience, encouraging them to observe their aquatic environment and wait patiently for the fish to bite the hook.
-The CreaBox™ is a wooden box of magnets allowing the reproduction of characters, animals, transport, etc.
-The magnetic puzzle maze (new version here) is one of the most complete educational games for children under 8 years old. With a wooden magnetic stick, the child must pass a multitude of balls in the right path in order to group them all in 1 very precise point. Often taking the form of animals or characters, this puzzle toy is very popular.
The magnetic universe is wide and varied where you can find all kinds of boxes or magnetic cases for the greatest happiness of the little ones (babies) as well as taller. Between the construction game, the puzzle, the magnetic animals and characters, the balls and sticks, the puzzle maze the choice is immense. The number of pieces remains a very important factor to take into consideration.
The magnetic game as well as boxes of magnetic pieces are available at L'Enfant Malin, an educational games store, in our universe MAGNETIC GAME.
Solutions and educational kits, especially for babies, are also available in our universe MAGNETIC CONSTRUCTION GAME.
