STEM Builder 19 PC Set
This magnetic shape set from Magformers has huge potential for the number of pieces provided. Aimed at an age range of three and older, young children will learn the basics of fitting pieces of varying shapes and sizes together to make colorful designs of their very own.

This gift helps develop spatial reasoning and design skill sets in young children. These are foundational competencies in any engineering discipline. The magnets are strong but not too difficult to pull apart, allowing kids to have fun building structures. 

This kit would be especially enjoyable if purchased to complement an existing pool of blocks and other building toys. The pieces function standalone from other toys but will add an extra degree of enriching play to any play set at home or school. - K. R. Schieltzm Purdue Reviewer
