HearthSong: Magneatos Review and Giveaway



HearthSong specializes in outdoor toys, games, puzzles, arts & crafts, and so much more. You can find "toys you'll feel good about giving." They were kind enough to send me the Magneatos 72 piece set to review.

About Magneatos
These oversize, brightly colored magnetic balls and rods help even the youngest builders-to-be develop fine motor skills and explore simple problem-solving techniques.
A special-needs-adaptable product and winner of two toy awards, the 72-piece set introduces children to the concepts of magnetism, geometry, and physics.
For ages 3 and up.
Magneatos are like huge magnet blocks. Olivia has been playing with it everyday. She loves to build towers with it. Sometimes when Olivia plays with blocks she gets frustrated when she can't put it together. But with Magneatos it is very easy to put together. The magnet is very strong. Olivia has no problem building things. I love that the size is just right. Perfect for little hands. Even my 6 month old daughter joined the fun playing with Magneatos.





Aside from building towers Olivia has been having fun using her imagination creating dumbbells, microphone, lollipops and other things with her Magneatos. It has provided us hours and hours of fun. I can definitely see why it won the 2005 and 2006 Oppenheim Portfolio Award. If your kids like to build things using blocks, they will definitely love Magneatos! The only thing I wish is that it comes with a storage box or bag to store it when done playing.

Here's my nephew playing with Magneatos.


You can purchase the 72-Piece Set for $59.98 at HearthSong.com.

    Another toy I truly like is the Magic Penny Magnet Kit for a little older child (with the pennies), and magnets are a fascinating subject to introduce to children!
