Get all your favourite Magformers magnetic construction pieces in one handy storage box. Contains 40 pieces (12 triangles, 18 squares, 6 isosceles triangles, 2 pentagons, 2 hexagons). Magformers’ magnetic shapes always securely attach. Pieces are made from a specially-toughened ABS plastic and small neodymium magnets are safely sealed in the edges of each piece. But because they are free-spinning, they always connect and never repel when two pieces are brought together. Magformers are tested and approved in quality and safety standards all over the world. Children can use basic Magformers geometric shapes to create 2D ‘flat’ plans (known as nets), but also 3D figures. It’s very easy to lay Magformers flat, forming a mathematical net, and pull them up to form 3D towers, cubes and other shapes. With Magformers magnetic construction sets, children can make hundreds of models from flowers and animals, to robots and cars and also come up with their own amazing ideas. Magformers help improve reasoning skills through the process of assembling ‘flat’ 2D planar (also known as ‘nets’) and then instantly transforming those ‘nets’ into 3D shapes. The sets also improve fine motor skills through touching and combining magnetic construction pieces by hand. The award-winning design and construction of Magformers helps to explore and develop children's creativity. At the core of the company, is the concept of 3D brain training – which helps children to develop comprehensive three-dimensional thinking through play. Internationally, Magformers has received more than 50 global educational and toy awards, including a gold and bronze medal in the UK practical pre-school awards.
