This week we’ve been playing with the Geomag Magicube Polar Animals and Safari Park magnetic block sets.
My poor second born doesn’t often get new things to review, being two years old and not quite ready for the more exciting toys which his older sister often gets to play with. So when we were sent both the Polar Animals and the Safari Park Geomag Magicube packs, he looked very excited indeed.
The Polar Animals set has eight blocks; the Safari Park set comes with 14. Both kits come with two cards and on each side is a design which you can make with the blocks.
The Safari Park kit comes with cards showing you how to make a lion, a giraffe, a camel and a parrot. Some are in 2D, and others are slightly more difficult 3D creations.
The small one really likes building with blocks.
These ones are large and easy to handle which makes them perfect for his little hands. Even better, the blocks are magnetised and can be fixed together easily in any direction which is brilliant. It means he can create tall towers and big cubes; you can of course use the kits together so he has quite a few to play with now.
The big one is a bit more able to follow the instructions and create the animals from the box; this gives the kit a bit of longevity as the toy will be able to be used in a different way even a few years from now, if we make sure we keep the cards with the blocks! They feel like they will last the distance too.
