I received the products mentioned in this review from SmartMax in exchange for an honest review. The opinions contained within this review are my original unbiased thoughts and may vary from the opinions of others.
What We Thought: When I received the package from SmartMax I was absolutely thrilled. I knew that our son was going to have a blast with them. I also knew I would have a lot of fun creating with him and seeing how these worked.
The concept of these construction toys are pretty simple. They are magnets. The best part of all is that the coordination needed to use these is very little, so these would be great for kids a year old and older. Our son is a little over 2 and he really enjoys them.
We got right to building and creating. Here are some of our creations:
These were super easy to create and a fun way to show Jack how these work. I love that these are big enough so there is no need to worry about choking and everything fits together tightly. These are some powerful magnets! Jack has really been rough on these toys in the last few weeks since they arrived and we have not had even 1 break. The ball connectors are very durable, but lightweight.
I love the stimulation that Jack has had since trying these out and we plan to buy him more to add to his set. The pictured set above cost is reasonable and it is new for the 2015 shopping season. This is an absolute perfect Christmas gift for any child who is looking to be a curious builder.
The best part about these construction toys to me is that they are teaching the science of magnets. There are magnets that link together, but some that do not. This is something that Jack has been learning while using these and he already knows after just a short time which ones fit together and which ones do not.
