Guidecraft Magneatos Better Builders - Review

Magneatos Better Builders are building pieces with magnets embedded inside each piece. This extra element to building extends a child's play dramatically. Magnetic toys are always one of the favorites in my daycare classroom and I like to make sure they have several magnet toy choices available.
This 100 piece set comes with curved rods, straight rods, balls, and a canvas storage box. My boys were anxious to start creating. Educational toys from Guidecraft always combine fun with learning and Magnetos are no exception. Children can learn the principles of science (especially the fascinating property of polarity), plus principles of construction and engineering.
Safe for all ages, Magneatos are a perfect toy for cooperative play. Children also learn about gravity and balance, discovering quickly that it takes more than just a row of rods to make Magneatos into stand-up structures.
These two boys played with the pieces for an entire hour, which is amazing considering their span of attention usually hovers around two minutes. They created animals, telephones, microphones, buildings, and many creative structures that had no names.
The canvas storage box is the perfect size for storing all the pieces and makes clean-up time easy and quick. As a preschool teacher, I would definitely recommend Magneatos for families and teachers. You can purchase this 100 piece set HERE and check out all Guidecraft's amazing products at http://guidecraft.com.
Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
