The Magna Play Magnetic Puzzles from Haggus and Stookles is a cute little metal suitcase that opens to reveal magnetic pieces in all shapes and sizes, designed to get kid’s imaginations working, as they create all manner of objects from fairies to robots to animals. To help them along, there is a booklet with easy to follow designs, but we found our girls got the hang of it quickly and were soon making up the most intricate things.
Each brightly coloured magnet is quite thick so they are easy for little fingers to gently put into place and pick up. When we covered over 1,700kms in three days, we found the Magna Plays to be the most popular toy, and the one that kept the kids the quietest as they thought about what to make next.
The girls would open the suitcase and put all the pieces on one side, they would browse through the booklet and then get to work on their own creation on the other side of the case. When they were finished playing they simply closed the suitcase and latched it together… all the pieces were contained and ready for the next inspiration.
Recently the ‘Great Aussie Road Trip’ exhibited at a travel expo and we had a few of the Magna Plays on display. We found that they were real kid magnets - kids just loved to play with them while they waited for mum and dad to catch up.
The puzzles are available in 4 different designs and our three children loved them. They are suitable for kids up to 12 years old.
