I received these toys for my review. All opinions are my own.
I am so happy that I was recently introduced to SmartMax, they make Colorful and safe magnetic construction toys for young children. They are so bright and fun, but best of all, they are easy for little hands to build with! And don’t worry about safety, each piece is designed to be large enough that you don’t have to worry about your child choking.
“North and south poles, attraction and repulsion are all concepts of magnetics that youngsters discover in science class. As preschoolers, they can begin to appreciate the thrill of a magnet pulling towards another magnet. By incorporating friendly animals and trains the beautifully crafted My First sets immediately appeal to a toddler’s senses of sight and touch.
In addition to the joy of clicking pieces together and pulling them apart as magnetic magic is discovered, toddlers pick up quite a few benefits during play. Parents will notice how hand-eye coordination, logical thinking, color recognition and creativity are stimulated and nurtured with a few rounds of play.”-SmartMax
I love that even little ones can engage in building just like their older siblings or friends do. In fact, the My First Safari is recommended starting at age 1 and the My First Animal Train is recommended for ages 1 and a half and up to 5 years.
I received both sets to try out. I am impressed by the quality of these toys. They are sturdy and feel very well made. The animal parts (heads and bottoms) are a soft rubbery feel and are perfect for small hands to grab and play with. Best of all, I love how easy it is to put them together, the magnet clicks easily so even a one year old can do it themselves.
SmartMax My First Safari Animals
