What Are Magna-Tiles®?
Magna-Tiles® by Valtech LLC were created to solve a problem. Designed by a Japanese math teacher, the innovative shapes offer a better way to give children hands-on learning experiences in geometric concepts and other fundamental skills, such as:
- Letter and number recognition
- Color recognition
- Fine motor skills
- Mathematical thinking
- Basic arithmetic
- Pattern recognition
- Design and architecture
- Magnetic principles
- And more…
Magna-Tiles® are a great way to spark interest in STEM subjects, encouraging children to discover new ideas and develop a love of learning. Just as importantly, these kids’ magnet sets encourage imaginative free play. There are no instructions and no screens – just pure creativity!
Why Choose Magna-Tiles®?
With a variety of magnetic construction sets in numerous configurations, it’s easy to find the right Magna-Tiles® for home or school. These high-quality magnetic toys are made with food-grade ABS plastic that’s free of BPA, phthalates, and latex for safe play. Each block contains a unique Union Jack shape at the center, giving it super strength that can withstand year after year of use. The 3-inch shapes are just the right size for children ages 3 and up, and bold, eye-popping colors will grab kids’ attention right away.
When children build with Magna-Tiles®, they’ll hear a distinctive “click” each time two shapes are connected. That sounds means a firm connection and is created by powerful ceramic magnets snapping together. Stronger connections ensure stronger builds, so science experiments hold together until the end and even the most towering structures stand tall until it’s time to start all over with another creative idea.
