There’s nothing our children’s specialist Rachel loves more than finding new therapeutic toys for kids – so when Geomag approach us about reviewing their new Shapes Wheels Magicube set, she leaped at the chance!
This 13- piece set of magnetic building blocks is recommended for children aged 12 months – 5 years, but as Rachel says, these versatile shapes can be used by older children as well. The Shapes Wheels set is perfect for depicting travel or transition (and there are plenty of designs you can follow in the kit). But the magic of the Magicube is that children can make anything to tell a story, and in the process sub-consciously work through feelings and build resilience.
Rachel’s rating: 5/5
What we love: The magicube is made from 100% recycled plastic and has limitless uses. It’s also easy to clean and helps build motor skills.
Cost: $49 in Australia or $34.99 in the US from major toy stores.
