Introducing Magna –Tiles!

The best toys give kids freedom to create what they see in their mind’s eye: a castle stormed by knights, a busy airport with flights arriving every minute, or a barn that’s home for Old MacDonald’s menagerie. Magna -Tiles are transformational toys that get the creative juices flowing. A set of tiles can be used to create a host of settings for imaginative play as well as obstacle courses, creatures, geometric patterns and so much more.

The colorful tiles look like stained glass but are much tougher. Tiny magnets along the edges of the tile hold pieces together and offer added stability that can support tall towers, until it’s time for them to come tumbling down. For budding architects, engineers, artists and mathematicians, designing with the tiles can help foster an intuitive understanding of some of the basic relationships between shape and stability as well as increase small muscle dexterity. And, because they stick together, they’re easy to clean up and to store out of sight.

Magna Tiles

Magna -Tiles were created in 1992 as an educational toy that helped children learn geometrical concepts and fractions, but educators soon realized that children loved playing with them. They are now among the most beloved toys at many preschools and kindergartens. Parents and teachers have access to the educational materials at the Magna –Tiles website for use at home or in the classroom. But long after the lessons are mastered, the kids will be having fun getting connected to their inventive, creative selves.
