In our house, we love creating and crafting. It only makes sense that we would also bring that sense of imagination into the holiday season. We’re doing this not only with handmade projects we put together, but also the toys we choose. And this holiday season, we’re flexing our imagination with the line of Magnaflexâ„¢ creative construction kits.
Wrapped under the tree or as a fun activity just because, Magnaflex inspires kids of all ages to build anything they can imagine! From WowWee, a robotics toy company branching out into activities, these building kits include colorful magnetic strips and connector pieces that take the normal construction kits a step further.
With a unique shape and material, Magnaflex are bendable, stackable, magnetic strips that snap together. The ridges on the strips connect into each other, too, for even more possibilities. Also included are metal connector pieces that not help secure your built structure, but can be used to decorate your creations, as well.
There’s also an easy-to-follow instruction guide with project ideas including animals, vehicles, wearable accessories and more.
We received both the Critters and Rainbow Magnaflex sets. Each of our kits come with 34 pieces, lots of color, and directions to get started. It’s all you need to help your kids craft scenes and images that are not only entertaining for them, but endearing to you as well.
My daughter started simply by making the colorful beach ball.
She first separated and grouped one of every color into a round shape. Once all the strips were magnetized together, they were then held together with a bottom connector piece. This now looks like a flower.
Then, using another connector piece takes it from a flat shape to a round ball!
Later on, after getting more used to the Magnaflex pieces, she got more creative by making an airplane, a star, and made the octopus, too, using the connector pieces as eyes. You can really build anything you can imagine!
There are so many ways to flex your creativity for the holidays. Two of the most obvious ways are with fun Christmas crafts like our Yarn and Button Christmas Trees or Bottle Cap Angels, and sweet homemade treats like our Snowman Cupcakes.
But you can’t forget about what goes under the tree, too. We’ve been having a lot of fun with our Magnaflex kits and are excited to share them as gifts this holiday season. See even more that they can do in a video here and find more information along with where to buy here!
