Fun with Magna Tiles

 My twins really love Magna Tiles. They have a nice sized set of them to build all sorts of spectacular creations with them. We have been collecting Magna Tiles for a couple of years now, they are so awesome! Magna tiles are great on the light table, or in dim light with LED lights, on the floor play tray with the sun peeking through the window to make them reflect color onto the floor, on a magnet board, and pretty much anywhere! Here are a few impressive structures that my twins, Graham and Parker (age 4) have built recently!  The first set of photos is their version of Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. They had watched the Halloween episode of Little Einsteins and then ended up building this the next day! Once you add LED lights and dim the lights, the results are amazing!  The second set of pics is a Haunted Mansion for Scooby Doo & the gang. Graham and Parker became really big Scooby Doo fans recently! They prefer the Scooby Doo series than ran from 1969-1971, awesome huh!!  I am impressed, they have great taste!! I love that Magna Tiles are so versatile for educational play  and can also be used for math purposes too! Kids are involved in critical thinking, tactile sensory, problem solving, etc.  I am really sorry that I did not know about them when my older children (16, 14, 12)  were young. They play with them occasionally now though. I enjoy them too, we have a lot of fun with Magna Tiles here. So the purpose of this blog entry is to show our love and appreciation for Magna Tiles in all their glory!

So..... Thank you Valtech Company for making such a wonderful toy!

  1. My 3-year-old twins play with their Magna-Tiles almost daily. We have 200 of them and they still run out when they're building. I've never thought of adding LED lights to them, but it's definitely something we'll try - the results look amazing!
