Learning Through Play

Magnetic toys provide hours of fun for tiny tots and older kids alike. Kids can go from learning basic skills up to more complex STEM concepts through play. Each piece is easy for little hands to make secure connections, and the vibrant colors are simple to spot at a glance. With Magna-Tiles® and Magna-Qubix®, a variety of lessons are on the table, such as:


  • Learning shapes and colors
  • Creating patterns and puzzles
  • Reinforcing mathematical concepts
  • Experimenting with structural design
  • Teaching basic coding concepts
  • And much more…


While playing in small groups, your young architects can also learn the value of teamwork. Whether you’re homeschooling, teaching in a traditional classroom, or casually playing inside on a rainy day, magnetic shape toys help kids learn important skills in a fun, engaging way.

The Importance of Open-Ended Toys

Why don’t our Magna-Tiles® and Magna-Qubix® building toys come with instructions? They’re powered by imagination and offer endless opportunities to create. You can stack, sort, count, and click to your heart’s content with no plan or agenda to follow. Active, open-ended play captivates the mind, inspires creative thinking, and offers a host of other benefits. When kids are given the opportunity to steer away from the familiar script that often comes with toys from a specific TV show or themed playset, they can explore the depths of their own imagination.


Developing minds can strengthen cognitive skills, decision-making, and independence through play. If they’re working in a group, children also develop the essential social and problem-solving skills they’ll need throughout their lifetimes. Best of all, Magna-Tiles® and Magna-Qubix® grow with your child. As your little builders’ ideas become more complex, they can find new ways to play with their favorite building toys — what will your construction crew come up with next?
