Magnetic Tiles  

Image of author
This item can be played with by children as soon as they can crawl, the shapes and colours will fascinate and then as they progress they can progress to the art of building designs. This set consists of 120 magnetic tiles a bit like a stained glass windows for the older child to create a masterpiece of design that does not have to be flat.

The weight of the individual pieces vary from 18 to 34cm according to their size and shape. There are eight different colours all of which are pastel to make the whole range of colours. There are seven different shapes.

Even though they are far too big for a young child to eat I see the box says they are 'food grade non toxic'.

The actual age stated on the box is 3+.

Creative play with Connetix Tiles promotes several benefits:

  • Encourages Creativity and Imagination: Children are encouraged to unleash their creative potential and let their imaginations soar as they design and build.

  • Develops Fine and Gross Motor Skills: Through hands-on construction, children enhance their dexterity and physical coordination.

  • Supports STEAM Learning: Construction play actively supports learning in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, fostering a well-rounded skill set.

  • Promotes Problem Solving and Perseverance: As children encounter challenges during construction, they develop problem-solving abilities and learn the value of persistence.

  • Open-Minded and Versatile: Connetix offers endless possibilities, allowing children to experiment, innovate, and explore various designs.

  • Spatial Awareness: Magnetic play helps children develop a better understanding of spatial relationships and geometry as they create and manipulate objects.

  • Magnetic Learning: Magnetic properties provide an introduction to the principles of magnetism and physics, making it an ideal tool for STEAM education.

It is by no no means a cheap item at £119 but the items mentioned above encourage young learning while they play. The CONNETIX Pastel Creative Pack is currently available from Amazon
