What is it
Use the power of magnets and your imagination to create unique structures with these cool, magnetic building panels.
The Magformers World Adventure Set combines the best elements from the creative Sea, Jungle, Desert and Mountain adventure kits. With 59 unique Magformers magnetic shapes, plus a whole host of extra accessories, such as caterpillar tracks, big wheels, small wheels, a bike wheel, power engine block and remote control, children can make numerous cool multi-terrain vehicles.
This ranges from an amazing desert off-roader to a super undersea submarine or rescue chopper, while with the magnetic pieces children can make animals appropriate to the terrain – like a dolphin, desert fox or mountain bear.
Magformers World Adventure can be combined with other Magformers sets for never-ending fun!

What our experts think
The Magformers World Adventure Set was incredibly popular with our testers! They got stuck right in without needing any guidance on how to connect the pieces; the magnets meant the models were strong but it was still very easy for children to add and remove pieces. Some of our testers followed the instructions to make specific models but they also loved just making whatever came to mind – this is great for enhancing creativity, encouraging curiosity and developing problem solving skills.
This is an excellent set for teaching children STEM subjects in a really fun, hand-ons way. The working motor and remote control were brilliant and really got children experimenting with vehicle designs, using trial and error to discover that lighter, more streamlined versions moved faster. This is ideal for encouraging an interest in science and engineering. Building 2-D or 3-D models helps children learn about geometry and we liked the way they could also add other toys (such as small dolls) for imaginative play, using their models as scenery or props.
It’s worth noting that the power unit is rechargeable, which is great for saving on batteries but does mean children will have to wait for it to charge.
