Guidecraft Grippies Windows

June 12, 2017



(Guidecraft $33.99)


Windows are a fun-to-explore addition to the Grippies line of magnetic toys that are designed to be big enough for toddlers and preschoolers to use safely. The magnets are totally buried in the chunky plastic pieces and the sets we are reviewing here are the ones that have stackers and connecters that are big enough, even for kids who still mouth their toys. Windows is a 16-piece set with colorful three-sided pieces with see-though windows in the center of each and balls that connect them. They can be linked in all sorts of freeform shapes. There is no right or wrong way to play but the polarity of the magnets introduces some challenges that will add interest as well as early STEM learning in a hands-on way. As you and your toddler play with these use size, position and color words to enlarge language and basic concepts. These can stand alone for experimenting. It’s a playful way of introducing kids to STEM concepts about magnets and how they can attract and repel. Marked 18 months and up. We think these will be even more interesting to preschoolers. The various sets of Grippies are compatible. Each variation comes in a sturdy bucket with secure lid for safe storage.

Ages: Toddlers, Preschoolers
