Since little Miss started school, I am constantly reminded of how quickly my little girl has grown and how clever she is. She gets restless if we don't go out or do something indoors. Like most kids, she has many toys that she doesn't play with and some she is now too old for.
With my background in IT, I always aim to provide her with opportunities to problem solve and create and to show her possibilities in STEAM fields to help her in the future if she pleases to go into those streams. When we last visited one of the big stores for one of her friend's birthday present, she asked me for a present too. I didn't really want to buy her anything as she has enough toys however she surprised me by choosing Geomag. I'm a sucker for STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) products and Geomag looked great so I couldn't say no. Besides toy sales were on too, try explaining that to her dad though - ha!
Little Miss didn't just choose any Geomag set but chose the Geomag Glitter version of course! As soon as we got home, she started building straight away following the instructions and different models that she could build but then created her own models afterwards. This worked out well as it kept her busy for almost one hour and kept her stimulated.
The Geomag Glitter pack we bought only had 30 pieces however I wish we had chosen the 68 piece to give her the opportunity to build bigger models. These sets are great at magnetic engineering. The 30 piece set contains 13 blue, red, yellow, and orange glitter magnetic rods and 16 non-magnetic steel balls to allow you to connect and build whatever awesome creations you want. It also includes 1 blue glitter square panel to get more in-depth!
These Geomag Glitter STEAM sets are great at helping children of all ages develop imagination and curiosity through the science of magnetic construction. Little Miss loves building with her Geomag set so we will have to get her more connectors to build bigger!
The magnets are safe for kids however they are not suitable for children under 3 because of the small magnet balls which are a choking risk. Kids 5 years+ will love Geomag Glitter. Also to bare in mind, magnets are to be kept away from sensitive devices such as credit cards, computers, magnetic media and medical devices like pacemakers.
