Do your kids love their Magna-Tiles as much as ours do? Want to reinvigorate their magnet tile creations? Whether your child is just getting started with magnet tile toys, or they’ve advanced to master building, this Lukat Magnetic Pipes and Blocks Toy will infuse their play with even more possibilities.
This 125 piece set comes with standard magnetic tile squares with a twist. Each square has a round or octagonal opening in the center. The squares with round openings have small holes surrounding the circle. A selection of brightly colored ramps, turns, and twists can be attached on either side of any square with a round opening to create the ball run of their wildest dreams. Two curved pieces can be attached to form a pipe, and the set also comes with six balls, three of which light up when rolled. The translucent colors tiles and pipes let kids watch the action as the balls roll down their creations.
Once kids master the connection process between the square tiles and the plastic pipe pieces, they have endless possibilities before them. The set also includes a selection of white plastic octagons that fit inside the openings of the other magnetic tiles. Some of these pieces can spin when balls roll through them, while others fill in the gap to make solid squares.
Kids can test their understanding of physics and physical forces as they build higher ramps and paths for balls to travel. The instruction manual doesn’t provide a lot of guidance since it doesn’t include step by step instructions. But it does offer a wide range of pictures for various creations, and lists the pieces needed to create each one.
My kids got this set as a gift for all three of them, at ages 6, 8, and 10. They’ve played with magnetic tile toys for years, and still love them. When this set arrived, they stopped playing a video game to build with this toy. The set comes with enough pieces that all three of them can play together, and the pieces work with our other Magna-Tiles, too.
If you want to up your child’s magnetic tile game, you can’t go wrong with this set.
