Monkey is in his element when he’s building things. He doesn’t mind following instructions, but he really comes into his element when he can let his imagination go wild. I caught up with Magformers on their stand at Toy Fair at the beginning of the year. You may recall that we reviewed the WOW set for them almost a year ago to the day. It’s been so well-played with over the last 12 months and he was thrilled to open a parcel when we got back from holiday recently. Let me introduce you to the Magformers Space WOW Set.
Aimed at children aged 3 years and over the Magformers Space WOW Set is great for creativity, working on fine motor skills and helps children understand 3D shapes and construction. This particular set comes with 22 magnetic pieces, 20 model build instruction cards, 7 planar figure instruction cards and 9 puzzle cards.
The construction pieces are made of strong plastic and contain strong magnets, letting children make a range of 2D and 3D shapes and vehicles. Monkey uses his existing Magformers set a lot and as soon as he saw that the Magformers Space WOW Set came complete with a space man he was away. Monkey’s mission to Mars was being planned at my kitchen table.
Should you choose to follow the instruction cards provided, they tell you how many pieces are required for each item and give you a picture to work to.
Younger children can enjoy the puzzle cards and it certainly helps get them started with the whole concept of Magformers.
I loves the concept of Magformers, and Monkey has spent hours playing with this set, there are some new shape additions to the Space set along with the space man and radar dish too.
Monkey’s been doing some work at school about different shapes so I was really interested to see him getting creative the other day, using his Magformers Space WOW Set. He was concentrating so hard, it was lovely to watch.
Magformers have a wide range of sets from the ‘My First’ through to themed Dinosaur and Construction Vehicle sets, Princess sets and even a Sweet House set. The Magformers Space WOW Set is priced at £39.99 and you can find more information about this set, and others within the range on the Magformers website.
Monkey and I are both fans of the brand, and I’m looking forward to seeing his next masterpiece of magnetic construction.
