What is it
The magic of the Magicube construction system takes the shape of a simple cube that provide a completely new construction system. The magnetic cubes can be stuck together by any side, without any polarisation issues. They can even remain suspended in mid-air! Amazing structures can be built and are easy to create even for the youngest of children.
Magicube is enhanced with new themes and accessories such as “Magic Clips”; these clips depict characters, objects and animals that can be magically attached to the cubes to help children express their creativity freely.
This range also contains different themes that allow for varied creations: Robots, Dinosaurs, Princess, Castles & Homes.

What our experts think
Our testers loved exploring the magic of magnetism as they built towers with the cubes. There was lots of chatter and excitement as the children tried to build the tallest towers and the longest trains – they were more interested in the cubes than the extra pieces (faces etc). Building towers and shapes promotes spatial awareness and an element of trial and error learning. Once an adult pointed out the attachments, they did play with them and used them to add to their creations. The older children were far more creative; this is definitely a toy that grows as your child does.
With adult interaction, there is scope for developing children’s knowledge and understanding of magnetism, as well as colour and shape recognition which compliments their curriculum learning. The product required the children to manipulate the pieces and so is also good for developing that important hand-eye coordination and dexterity needed for progressing towards holding a pen.
