Checklist For Magnetic Toys

Checklist For Magnetic Toys

Age
  • In general, magnetic toys are suitable for children 3 years and older. It is important that your child understands the principle of magnetism and can do something with the toy.
  • More complex games, such as magnetic constructions made of balls and connecting rods, are more suitable from about 8 years.
  • Children under 36 months should not yet play with magnetic toys. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Teenagers and adults can also have fun with magnetic toys.
Safety
  • Explain clearly to your child that magnets do not belong in the mouth. Swallowing magnets can be dangerous, especially if there are two or more pieces that then come together in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Safe and tested products have a CE mark and a GS mark (tested safety).
  • Good products are made of high quality hard plastic or wood. The magnets should not be exposed.
  • Look for rounded corners and edges.
Types
  • Magnetic toys can take many forms . For example, there are magnetic blocks, magnetic puzzles, magnetic balls, magnetic mazes and magnetic laying games.
  • Simple puzzle and laying games are often suitable for very young children, such as 3-year-olds. Larger parts that cannot be swallowed are preferable here.
  • For a more challenging game, magnetic building blocks, which can also be used to build complex three-dimensional figures, are a good choice.
  • The sets of magnetic bricks suggested here contain between 36 and 156 pieces.
Educational Learning Effect
  • Playing with magnetic blocks offers a number of advantages. Among other things, it promotes spatial thinking, fine motor skills, patience and perseverance. Furthermore, it can playfully introduce your child to physics, geometry and science.
  • Building and construction toys should ideally contain different shapes such as rods, balls, rectangles, triangles or trapezoids.
  • Some sets also include letters and numbers in different colors. With these, you can introduce your children to school topics and train their color perception.
Accessories
  • A bag or container to store the parts should be included if possible.

FAQ About Magnetic Toys

From what age magnetic games?

As a rule, magnetic games are approved for ages 3 and up. However, large parts are also suitable for earlier ages. Small parts are of course out of the question, so the age rating of the respective products should always be observed.

How expensive are magnetic toys?

The price of magnetic toys depends on the type and number of parts they contain. Thus, larger sets are more expensive than those with fewer parts. The prices range from 15 to 100€.

Which magnetic bricks are the best?

Which magnetic toy is the best for a child should also be chosen according to the child’s preference. For children who like it a little tricky and like to look for solutions, the magnetic bars with balls are the right choice. This is because they are usually less extensive and encourage logical thinking. For children who like to construct and build, the flat components are more suitable, which can be assembled into various 3D models.

Which magnets are suitable for kindergarten?

Magnetic toys that do not contain small parts that could be swallowed are suitable for kindergarten. In addition, the magnets should be quite large and not too complex.

Are magnetic toys dangerous?

Basically, magnetic toys are not dangerous. The only danger is that children can swallow small parts of magnetic toy sets. In addition, the material of the magnets should be made of non-toxic material.

How do magnetic toys work?

With the help of magnetic building blocks, constructions, shapes or patterns can be laid. Depending on the degree of requirement, the magnets can be larger or smaller or have simple or complex shapes.
