Magicube *Review & Giveaway*

I want to introduce you to Magicube by Geomag a new era of building blocks. When these arrived the other week Elarna was so excited to play with them, I could see the delight on her face when she clocked the packaging with the animals on it and I pretty much knew instantly that these were going be a hit in the Blogging Beautifully house. They've also helped us just get through a particularly nasty bout of chicken pox, they made a good distraction!

Aimed at children from 1 1/2 - 3 years old these blocks are perfect for my daughter as she sits right in the  middle of the age bracket and is currently loving building and exploring block constructions. I often find her building towers and a variety of structures with different toys.



We were sent the safari animals and polar park but there is a variety of other designs to choose from. Each box comes with the blocks and 4 building ideas which are provided on a glossy postcard, they are clear and simple for a child to follow but a little bit of guidance is required. 

The blocks are brilliant for encouraging hand/eye coordination and independent playing. There are lots of possibilities to create with them and it's a fab interactive toy.  You can build 2D or 3D designs, the latter is a little more tricky to be built and an adult is likely to need to help. 



The cubes are perfect toddler size, gently curved and textured making them easy to hold in little hands. They are bright and colourful and the images on each of the blocks easy to see. There are 8 cubes included in the polar kit and 14 in the safari and each one is magnetised so they gently attach to the other cubes to enable the child to create the animals. 



What did we like about the Magicubes?

  • They are easy to hold and fairly simple to create the images
  • Encourage fine motor skills and hand/eye coordination
  • They are a twist on the traditional building block
  • They are appealing, bright, colourful and younger children will love them
  • There is endless building possibilities, it captures the imagination of the child
  • It's a lovely bonding experience helping your child with the cubes
  • They are alot of fun!



We really do love the cubes and they're going to be a firm favourite in our playroom, I can tell. They're going to be coming on holiday with us as not only are they great for Elarna but Alfie also enjoys playing with them. Perhaps not as challenging for him but he certainly enjoys making the different designs.



So in the Blogging Beautifully household we give the Magicubes a big thumbs up! We absolutely love them and although I think the RRP is maybe a little steep (£27.00 for the smaller pack and £35.00 for the larger) I do think that these are toys that will continue to be played with time and time again. I have to confess I had quite alot of fun myself building the giraffe!



So if you like the look of the Magicubes I'm very pleased to tell you have I have a set of the safari cubes (worth £35.00) to give away. I'm super excited to be running this giveaway as they would make a fab Christmas gift for a budding builder or designer.
