What our experts think
These magnetic cubes kept the children entertained for a long time and encouraged them to use their imagination to create different things. Our older testers enjoyed re-enacting the story using the magnets, which helped build confidence and vocabulary, as well as storytelling skills.
Our younger testers did need a lot of adult input with the story, only tending to join in with familiar lines when an adult acted it out – however, imitation is a good way of learning at this age. The younger ones did also really enjoy playing with the cubes and making towers, which is fantastic for developing their hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.
