We hesitate to use the word “perfect” in toy descriptions, lest we discover that there is one child, somewhere, who does not enjoy a particular product. So when we talk about the Magna-Tiles magnetic building sets, we hedge just a little: Magna-Tiles may be a fraction of a percentage point away from perfect.
But we don’t think that fraction will detract from your child’s enjoyment of the Magna-Tiles DX Clear 48-Piece Set. Magna-Tiles magnetic tiles are the ultimate open-ended 3D construction toy, allowing endless building possibilities, since the magnets attract in all directions. And this Magna-Tiles construction set includes more nifty accessories than ever: a curved arch, a hinged door, hole-punched triangles, and a wheeled chassis add fun new functions, letting kids build Magna-Tiles houses with doors that open (which can then be inhabited by dolls and action figures), and vehicles that roll.
And that’s only the beginning of what you can do with Magna-Tiles. Playing with Magna-Tiles teaches young children about color, shapes, symmetry, and basic math, while it improves their fine motor skills and problem-solving skills; as they get older, they’ll create more and more sophisticated designs, both abstract and specific. The feel of magnets clicking together and pulling apart delights kids of any ages (and adults, too!), and the stained-glass look of the clear plastic pieces is simply beautiful.
So, are Magna-Tiles the perfect toy? Ultimately, we leave it up to you to judge. Get your child a set, and find out for yourself.
The Magna-Tiles DX Clear 48-Piece Set is for ages 3 and up, and includes:
3 large squares
12 small squares
10 right triangles
9 equilateral triangles
6 isosceles triangles
1 wheeled chassis
2 imagination pieces
2 triangles with round window
1 square door frame
1 magnetic hinged door
Colorful, fun, expanded the basic set
My local learning store did not carry the expanded set I wanted and Magic Bean helped me Christmas shop. The order was placed, I received a very impressive and comprehensive confirmation, the gift arrived when promised, and GIFT WRAPPED!!!
My 4 and 6 yr old grandsons love the tiles and the deluxe addition added so many more possibilities and hours of fun.
My boys can't get enough of these tiles. Two years after purchasing our first set, they are still playing with them for hours at a time. Great quality, promotes open-ended play and creativity. This latest purchase was to supplement our original set. Shipped fast, and arrived as advertised - very happy!
Well made, safe, great colors
Could use more of the unique pieces
My 5 year old granddaughter already had the 100 piece basic set so this was a great addition. She started playing with it immediately and has used it with her larger set nearly everyday since Christmas. This is such an open ended toy with endless possibilities. It is also great for learning spatial skills and basic math. The set is also very sturdy and her older set shows no signs of wear. It is well worth the price.
Bought this for grandchildren 2 years to 5 years. They all loved playing with these bright colored magnetic tiles. They built towers, car washes and garages for their cars and trucks. It was amazing to see their imaginations at work, and with the ease of the magnetic tiles they had a great time. Definitely going to get the 100 piece set.
