BizyBeez MagStix Sensory Magnetic System
A versatile 41-piece magnetic construction set with a base, 8 curved rods, 16 straight rods, 8 balls, 4 half balls, and four wheeled pieces that can turn constructions into working vehicles. Since all the pieces are magnetic, there is a lot of hands-on learning about the opposite and same poles and how the attract or repel each other. There are sample constructions, but really this is an open-ended building set that can be used to invent games and inventions for the creative hands and minds of children and their caregivers. The storage box is sturdy, but it also includes a drawstring bag for storing these colorful building pieces. An engaging STEM toy that children will use in ever more complex ways as they go from early preschool and beyond.
SNAP: No right and wrong ways to use this building toy. The magnets make connections, so this is builds on success by helping kids who find connecting pegged building pieces too difficult. You can use these materials to sort by color and shape. Use color words, position words and counting to reinforce those concepts as children are playing with the concrete items in their hands.
Ages: Preschool, Early School
