What our experts think
The children loved that the Paw Patrol characters were very recognisable. Our younger testers enjoyed building towers with as many MagiCubes as possible, watching them wobble and then knocking them down. This occupied them for a long period of time. The older children used the cubes to practice math skills by connecting the cubes together and adding them up. This was also done with subtracting the cubes too. They also used the cubes in imaginative play, acting out different scenarios from the Paw Patrol series.
Our testers also found the MagiCubes very good quality and robust with them being knocked down and thrown about. The children found it satisfying with the way the cubes stuck together and then needed to be pulled apart- this opened up a conversation about magnets and how they worked.
For the younger children it did come across a bit more tricky when figuring out how to put the cubes together to make the different vehicles. They thought it would have been useful to have some cards inside the box that showed how all the vehicles connected together to make each picture.
