Magnetic Wooden Blocks-30-piece set
Age range 3 years thru 5 years
Toy Type CO -- Construction ES -- Educational TY -- Toy WT -- Wooden Toy Itty Bitty City is a creative play center for children; a STEAM and Montessori-friendly educational construction toy for toddlers and preschoolers. These unique wooden blocks have built-in magnetic properties that are not limited by balance or the north/south polarity of conventional magnets (patent pending). Magnetic Wooden Blocks enable young minds to think outside the box by adding a new level of creativity and exploration. Research shows that young learners develop socially, physically, intellectually, and creatively by playing with blocks. The 30-piece set ($49) gives toddlers all the tools they need to let their imaginations explore. Packed with cubes, triangles, and quarter circle shapes, this set builds great structures, patterns, and even creative creatures, as five of the blocks have eyes. One side of the blocks can be assembled to make a cat face, and the opposite side makes a dog. Of course, the blocks can be mixed into many other unique creations as well. Each block is crafted from wood with magnets built on the inside, so the blocks have all the warmth and heft of a wooden block with the added gravity-defying science of magnets, and are safe for everyone to enjoy. The Magnetic Wooden Blocks are strong enough to hold the most creative designs, but they won’t pinch fingers. Fawn and Craig Rechkemmer created Itty Bitty City as a family owned business and invented their Magnetic Wooden Blocks with no waste packaging.
