The set includes 14 standard Magformers pieces (squares, including a boy
square, and triangles) and 2 sets of wheels.
It also contains high quality, double-sided learning cards, which facilitate
the main principles of playing with MAGFORMERS®, and inspire creative ideas for
children of all ages. The cards range from learning about simple shapes and
colours, simple 2D puzzles for younger children, through to more complex 2D
puzzles that parents and younger children can work on together.
Children can also learn about 2D to 3D modelling, with the fold out
‘life-size’ cards, which allows the child to place the actual pieces on top
of the 2D shape and then transform the 2D shapes into a 3D model by lifting the
pieces put together on the flat lay. This involves laying the pieces flat on the
card, and using their magnetic power to transform them into 3D structures.
To aid the next level of learning, there are 20 model cards of vehicles that
can be built. The idea is for the child to work out how to build the vehicle by
looking at the picture, rather than following ‘step by step’ instructions.
This trains the child to think about the shapes and number of pieces required to
make the vehicle. Importantly, it also requires the child to develop rotational
skills, by working out which shapes would be on the unseen side.
This is a fun, unique construction set that is fully compatible with other
MAGFORMERS® sets. The vehicle theme is integrated throughout this entire set
with fantastic colours and illustrations, and the many builds will keep kids
busy and entertained, whilst fostering brain development, motor skills, and
general exploration! The pieces are highly durable, and children can also use
the pieces to build whatever their imagination permits (including planes,
buildings or other structures, houses, balls, cubes, geometric shapes…the
possibilities are limited only by imagination)!
By playing with this set, as with every other compatible MAGFORMERS® set,
children will be developing Spatial Awareness, Rotation, 2D to 3D Modelling,
Mathematical and Scientific thinking, Reasoning, Sensory Skills, Fine Motor
Skills, Creativity, Curiosity, Imagination, Problem Solving and Engineering
Principles…all while having fun!!
