Summer is in full throttle here in California. The days are longer and sooooo much hotter! We enjoy swimming the late afternoons away and taking late evening strolls… Unfortunately, the late mornings/early afternoons here are so hot, that stepping outdoors during this time of day is not ideal for anyone. The heat is horrendous and the sun is simply too harsh. This means you can typically find us hanging out indoors, enjoying our air conditioning and our new favorite toy, Shape Mags Magnetic Stick N Stack Tiles!
Shape Mags is an award winning magnetic building set that comes in several different shapes (depending on the set) and in 5 different colors. If you scour the internet for reviews, you will literally not find one single bad review. Everyone (young and old) loves Shape Mags!
What makes Shape Mags so great?
Shape Mags encourages critical thinking, creative play and helps build fine motor skills so that your children are learning while they are playing! The magnetic feature makes them super versatile, which is one of my favorite things about them (that and they hurt A LOT less than legos when stepped on)! I love how my kids are able to create fun designs on our refrigerator while I am cooking dinner. My friend at Crazy Life with Littles, came up with a great idea while traveling with kids – simply bring a lap sized cookie sheet along with your Shape Mags in the car for long road trips. The magnetic tiles stick to the cookie sheet and the kids have a great time focusing on that instead of their long drive!
Our Experience with Shape Mags
When we got our set in the mail, the first thing I did was take it to Grandma’s house for a cousin play date.
As I suspected, it was a huge hit and the kids LOVED it! They would have played for hours if we had the time. Since we came home later that day, Isabella has been playing with her Shape Mags non-stop. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught some video of her in action in my Instagram stories. I love how much she loves to play with them, and I love watching her imagination run wild!
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a special little one in your life, I highly suggest Shape Mags!
Shape Mags has tons of kits to choose from starting at just $20! I’ve linked a few of my favorites below.
