Review:
You’ve never seen a magnetic building set like this! The secret is hi-tech ceramic magnets embedded in flat geometric shapes, which enable the tiles to attract each other on all sides, at their edges, and even when flipped around. This means you can start with a flat arrangement of shapes on a table and fold the pieces into 3-D objects. A fine instruction sheet introduces the creative and mathematical possibilities of combining two sizes of squares and three kinds of triangles, and leaves children eager to continue their own explorations.
