whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress,
giving birth to evolution”

Benefits of Magnetic Toys and Kits 

 

1. Less Screen Time 

Kids these days are born with media devices in hand. Whether it's about engaging kids during meal times or keeping kids entertained on vacations or long drives, parents often give them mobiles or tablets but what parents don’t realize is that in no time these temporary engagement tools will turn into kids’ biggest addiction. Whether it's about watching repetitive cartoons/series or scrolling social media aimlessly, tech devices take away kids’ major milestones. 

 

2.  Boost Problem-Solving Skills 

Whether it is a kid’s school report card or an adult’s curriculum vitae, problem-solving skills are always on top. Magnetic toys allow kids to create new designs & models and when they get stuck somewhere in the construction process, they use their imagination & intelligence to come out of it and create what they planned. The psychological process of getting stuck with a specific design or shape and a desire to create what kids’ imagined make them understand the real-world problems. 


 

3.  Shape Recognition 

In a typical mathematics class, students are taught about different geometric shapes and figures, and unquestionably most of the students lack in mathematics or often hate it. But learning playfully usually reflects in school report cards. That’s what the magnetic range aims to achieve through different shapes and 2D-3D constructions.
