Magna-Tiles Clear and Colored magnetic building sets foster patterning, shape recognition, 3 dimensional thinking, building skills and fine motor skills. Whether through directed instruction or through open-ended creative play, Magna-tiles allow young minds to experience and understand basic math, science and creative concepts. Developing familiarity with geometric shapes will lay a strong foundation for advanced mathematics, such as geometry and calculus.
Magnatiles - How We Found Them
Magna Tiles by Valtech Corporation were recommended by a customer who purchases Rhino Toys from us. She explained that her grandchildren and now their neighborhood friends all love the 3-D magnetic building tiles. We put her claim to the ultimate test with our Chief Buyer's, at the time, six year old. He loved them. His only complaint? He wanted more sets so he can build bigger things!
