We are huge fans of magnetic toys! There are so many more than just magnet tiles. Which are still amazing! These are our top 5 magnetic toy picks!
Smart Max Safari Animals
These magnets are great for working on fine motor skills and coloring matching. The kids also enjoy getting creative with them by mixing and matching. We have this safari set but there are also dinosaurs and farm animals.
2. Magnetic Robots
These robot magnets are great for creativity. You can mix and match them sooo many different ways! Pieces are a little small so I keep an extra close eye on Eveyln (2) when she plays with them. Max (4) plays with them the most and he really likes them. Its fun to watch him create and then listen to the story he makes up about the robots he creates.
3. My Family Builders
The family builder magnets are a great diversity toy addition. You can mix and match their heads, tops and bottoms. They have very distinct negative and positive magnetic poles and it's been fun talking with Max (4) about that. Evelyn (2) doesn't understand and will get frustrated when they don't go together the way she planned. MyFamilyBuilders.com
4. Magnetic Dress up
This toy is fun for both kids! They are able to dress up "Joey" into a fireman, superhero and much more. They can mix and match him to look silly too! We have this one and Santa is getting a princess one for Evelyn for Christmas. There are many different ones to choose from. I've even seen a dress up horse!
5. Createon Magnet Tiles
Now I know I said there are more magnetic toys than just tiles but these tiles are much different! These tiles aid to tell the story "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?" Which happens to be a favorite story in our house. We have found so many ways to play with these. Color matching, story telling and even a fishing game! There are multiple Eric Carle stories created into these tiles including "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"
I hope you enjoyed our magnetic toy picks!!
