There’s one thing parents and preschoolers agree on: Toys that are fun to build and boost math and motor skills earn big (and little) thumbs up. Magformers My First 100 PC Set includes magnetic building pieces that encourages kids to create open-ended 3D shapes or use the easy-to-follow idea booklet to construct school buses, cars, train stations and more. Little builders can snap the colourful geometric shapes together easily while learning the fundamentals of how magnets work. Kids may need some help to make more complicated structures, but this appealingly low-tech toy offers lots of play value for the budding engineers in your home.

Magformers are an excellent toy with great longevity and repeat play. This is a perfect starter set—it would make a wonderful gift!” —Morgan, mom of two
