Holiday Guide 2020: Find a Child’s Perfect Gift
Few toys fuse hours of unstructured, imaginative play with the opportunity for STEM learning and vital skills development like the Magna-Tiles® family! With no instructions included, children have the creative freedom to build anything they can dream up, from their favorite movie scenes and characters to tall skyscrapers and even spaceships. Plus, these magnetic toys are so beneficial for learning that educators utilize them in lesson plans and experiments around the world, and they’re such a blast to play with that the entire family will want to get in on the fun!
This holiday season, skip the lines at the mall and say “no thanks” to flimsy toys and video games. Instead, give your children the gift of unlocking their true potential with Magna-Tiles®. Our lineup of magnetic blocks for kids includes numerous Magna-Tiles®, Magna-Qubix®, and Magna-Tiles® Structures sets, all of which are compatible with one another and perfectly complement other toys and activities that your children love. If you’re not sure where to start, our helpful holiday guide will point you in the right direction.
Top Recommendations for First-Time Magna-Tiles® Purchases
If your family is new to Magna-Tiles®, our classic sets are a great introduction to what creative, screen-free play has to offer. But how do they work? It’s simple – each piece features strong magnets that connect to our other shapes with a distinctive “click,” letting you and your children bring your wildest dreams to life. Plus, the powerful connection between each piece enables every creation to stay intact until playtime is over.
Our classic sets are a great place to start. They contain our five standard shapes, which include:
- Large squares
- Small squares
- Equilateral triangles
- Isosceles triangles
- Right triangles
If there’s just one child in your household, consider the Magna-Tiles® Clear Colors 32-Piece Set. If you have two or more children, keep them all equally busy with the Magna-Tiles® Clear Colors 100-Piece Set. From there, you can expand their classic Magna-Tiles® collection with the Magna-Tiles® Cars 2-Piece Expansion Set, Magna-Tiles® House 28-Piece Set, or Magna-Tiles Metropolis 110-Piece Set. In any case, round out your gift with the Magna-Tiles® Storage Bin & Interactive Play-Mat.
What to Give Long-Time Magna-Tiles® Fans
If you and your children are already avid users of Magna-Tiles®, there are dozens of Magna-Tiles®, Magna-Qubix®, and Magna-Tiles® Structures sets to choose from to expand or complete your collection. If you already own them all, the NEW Magna-Tiles PlayBook along with our Magna-Tiles® Storage Bin & Interactive Play-Mat will not only take playtime to the next level but also help you keep your collection organized and in tip-top shape.
The Perfect Set for Toddlers
Children in this age group are just beginning to immerse themselves in the big, new world around them, and Magna-Tiles® sets are here to support hands-on learning. Since 1997, Valtech LLC, the creators of Magna-Tiles®, has fostered the development of math, science, spatial, and tactile skills, as well as the mastery of STEM concepts, problem-solving, and teamwork. With the Magna-Qubix® 85-Piece Set, children can work on their stacking skills, fine motor skills, and color recognition while bypassing the challenges presented by traditional building blocks. As always, adult supervision is recommended!
Gifts for Nieces, Nephews, and Grandkids
If you’re an aunt, uncle, or grandparent, make this holiday unforgettable for the kids in your family. Those new to Magna-Tiles® can get started with the Magna-Tiles Clear Colors 48-Piece Deluxe Set or Magna-Tiles® Frost 50-Piece Grand Prix Set, both of which include classic tiles and pieces to build cars for under $75. If your nieces, nephews, or grandchildren already love playing with Magna-Tiles®, give them one of our unique sets for under $50, such as:
- Magna-Tiles® Stardust 15-Piece Set
- Magna-Tiles® Glow in the Dark 16-Piece Set
- Magna-Tiles® ICE 16-Piece Set

Magna-Tiles® aren’t just for young kids, either. For the older children and teens in your family, try the Magna-Tiles® Freestyle 40-Piece Set. Featuring x-shaped pieces with moving magnets, this set presents the opportunity to create more complex builds, which are sometimes more difficult for younger children to navigate.
Stuff Your Stockings and Pair Magna-Tiles® with Other Toys
Not only are all Magna-Tiles® sets compatible with one another for hours of endless excitement, but they also pair well with some of our favorite open-ended toys, including:
Our magnetic shapes for kids also make great stocking stuffers, especially the Magna-Qubix® 19-Piece Set, which is compact enough to fit right into your child’s stocking.
