This 3D magnetic building set engages young minds by fusing together math, science, and creativity! Magnetic edges allow the plastic to easily snap and stay together! The set comes with an array of shapes (large and small squares and three different types of triangles) encouraging kids to imagine and build all sorts of different objects and structures. In addition to inspiring imaginary play, MAGNA-TILES develop math, science, spatial and tactile skills.
Recommended for ages 3+
Discovery Kits can be reserved in the catalog for pickup at any PPLD location. They check out for seven days but can be renewed as long as there are no holds.
Due to the size of the kits, all Discovery Kits must be returned to library staff at the main desk during regular business hours. Please do not return this item to a book drop.
Playing and experimenting with MAGNA-TILES will encourage users to do the following:
Lay out the pieces and experiment with snapping them together. You can identify different shapes and colors with younger children. Encourage kids to experiment with how the different shaped pieces snap together to form new shapes and 3D structures. Then imagine and build!
