What is it
The ‘Magformers Amazing Police’ magnetic construction set contains 50 pieces – 24 Magformers magnetic shapes and 26 add-on accessory pieces.
With police and ‘villain’ character figures, a host of special transforming accessory pieces – like an emergency lights block that turns into a propeller – and Magformers magnetic shapes, this 50-piece set builds an entire police-themed play world. Children can make and transform models including a police station, emergency command centre, police riverboat and target response vehicle – in total over 50 recommended amazing fire and rescue-themed structures and educational geometric shapes in 2D and 3D.
The Magformers Amazing Police Set is fully compatible with all other Magformers sets.
Magformers’ magnetic shapes always securely attach. Pieces are made from a specially-toughened ABS plastic and small neodymium magnets are safely sealed in the edges of each piece.
But because the magnets rotate, they always connect and never repel when two pieces are brought together. Magformers are tested and approved in quality and safety standards all over the world. Children can use basic Magformers geometric shapes to create 2D ‘flat’ plans (known as nets), but also 3D figures. It’s very easy to lay Magformers flat, forming a mathematical net, and pull them up to form 3D towers, cubes and other shapes.

What our experts think
The Magformers Amazing Police and Rescue Set is great for encouraging spatial skills and logical thinking alongside imaginative role play. Our testers liked that they were able to follow the instructions to build models from the booklet provided, although these were a little tricky to follow. However, the children loved building their own creations – this really allowed their creativity to flow, while teaching them about shapes and patterns.
Transforming 2D shapes into 3D constructions helps children to develop spatial reasoning and visualise in 3D, which is fantastic for their STEM learning. The police cars were also very popular and the children were encouraged to use their imaginations to build other versions of police equipment to use within their role play.
