Magformers

One of Eaton's favorite toys is magnetic construction set called Magformers. I purchased the  first set in our local educational store. The owner of the store was surprised that I buy it for a 2 year old boy because recommendation on the box was six years and up . I was looking for a toy that would  expand Eaton's imagination and would  give him satisfaction from creating something new each time. I was pleased to find a toy that would do that and also teach spacial awareness and problem solving.


Second set I bought together with my husband being on the other side of the Island. We saw a magnetic set with wheels. That set was even better because Eaton is crazy about everything that has wheels! That set was a hit! Together with the first one it creates never ending joy for our boy. 




We also heard that company that was selling Megformers went out of business and we decided to buy a third set as Eaton wants to race the cars he creates and daddy wants to play too!
 I guess daddy bought himself a toy!!!
