What our experts think
Children loved building with the Smart pieces, which are the right size for little hands. The magnets meant the parts are easy to connect and allow children to experience how magnets repel and attract. Children experimented with connecting the pieces and also used them for pretend play, from a pen for farm animals to a microphone and an ice cream. This is great for encouraging creativity and imaginative thinking. When building structures, children also need to think logically to build something strong enough.
