Making Fun with Magneatos

Children love to create and build. Even in this day and age of computerized everything, video games and other electronic devices, a toy that works by simply connecting to itself will have your children hooked on playing with Magneatos.
Magneatos are great toys that promote hand and eye coordination, spatial awareness and judgment skills, not to mention they will really stimulate the imagination of your children. If you have more than one child or a group of children that will be using these, group play will also be encouraged along with cooperation when they work together to create different designs.
The Magneatos original set which was made for younger children has jumbo sized pieces that are easy for little hands to handle and as each piece is magnetic, there is no snapping, aligning or fitting complex pieces together. All a child has to do is touch the pieces together and magnets go into action and hold together. Magneatos won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award in 2005 and the Oppenheim SNAP (Special Needs Adaptable Product) award as these are very good developmental tools for children that have special needs.
Now for older children that want something a little more complex than the original set, there is now an intermediate level set for them to use. These Magneatos are smaller in size and allow for more complex designs with more details. This set is available in the following sizes: 32 pieces, 66 pieces, 114 pieces or the super fun 240 pieces.

The Magneatos 144 Piece Set will give older children and children who have mastered the original Magneatos hours of fun creating and building towers and other designs their imaginations come up with.
