If your kids love magnet tiles as much as mine, you might consider adding these magnet tile cars to your collection.
Unlike most of the starter and expansion sets from Magna-Tile, this Picasso brand offers a lower price point that can’t be beat for these wheeled expansions. You can get two cars for under $10. The wheeled flat surfaces can hook together or act independently to create even more magnetic fun for a variety of ages.
Our cars don’t hold up quite as well as the original Magna-Tiles, but for the price point, they offer a lot of value. One of our cars has lost both the circle and peg connections on either end, leaving it with semi-sharp points instead. It won’t connect but my kids love it anyway and I’m happy to report no one besides the car itself has been injured.
If you prefer brand name durability, Magna-Tile brand cars come included in several sets, or you can buy a two pack for about twice the price of the PicassoTiles brands. They connect via magnets with no hooks or pegs necessary, so fewer parts can be broken.
No matter which brand you choose, the extra wheels go a long way to facilitating more magnet tile fun.
