When I was little (way back in the 80's), blocks consisted of a block. A whole set of blocks to be precise. Sometimes they were plain, letters and numbers, or even pictures.
When I started having kids, the clocks got a lot cooler. They added noise and colors, even fun games. Maybe it was a simpler time back then, but we didn't need all that, we were just happy stacking our blocks.
Meigo is amazing at going back to the simple times. These magnetic blocks are both new and cool but also a throwback to magnetic blocks of the past. They are plain and that's what makes them perfect to me.
This set includes 51 magnetic blocks, idea booklet, and a bag to store it all in. The bag, as you can see is pure red and would look perfect underneath the tree. Santa forgot his little red bag kids!
If you don't like one color just flip the block over to find another. At first, these blocks can be a bit hard to work with. After making a few things, the kids and I got pretty good with them.
My only issues, are the fact that the idea booklet shows many other blocks and structures that aren't included, but no info on how to find or buy them.
Also, the blocks are only magnetic at certain points, making them a bit harder to use. We had a bit of trouble getting even the company ideas to stay correctly.
All in all the kids and I had a really fun night. They played with the blocks for at least an hour after I stopped. They are a hit with them and I love them too. These will make the perfect Christmas present or stocking stuffer.
When you go to check these blocks out, make sure you click their store and see some other cool stuff. Also, keep and eye on this blog for more to come in the next week.
What's the coolest thing you ever made with blocks? ANY kind of blocks. My favorite, was a giant roller coaster, that really worked! Let me know what yours is below.
