About Magna Tiles
You can only get so creative with a basic set of blocks; build the tower too high and it comes crashing to the ground. If you want your child to develop budding architecture skills without the frustration that comes with building blocks, then you need a set of Magna-Tiles. Magna-Tiles are magnetic on all edges, so they stick together no matter what way the child arranges them. Among the selection on eBay are small Magna-Tiles sets that contain 32 pieces. Starting with the small set, encourage your children to make two-dimensional designs and three-dimensional small houses, towers, rockets, playgrounds, and whatever else they can imagine. As they grow more confident and learn more about geometry and patterns, invest in a bigger 100-piece set. The 100-piece set comes with four large squares, 11 right triangles, 20 equilateral triangles, 15 isosceles triangles, and 50 small squares. These are the five original Magna-Tiles set shapes, but expansion packs with more unique shapes are also available. Once you have a collection of Magna-Tiles, you can do your own version of STEM education with your kids at home. The best part is that the kids may never even realize that these toys are educational.
