Magneatos: A Guidecraft Mom Blog Review

Primary colors.  Magnets.  Balls.  Lots of pieces. Open-ended play.

Three little boys’ delight.

Guidecraft graciously sent us a Magneato 36 piece set and the jumbo curved 24 piece set to play with and review as part of Guidecraft Mom Team

What can you do with this toy?

  • How high can you build a Magneato tower before it falls?

Magneatos 008

  • Magneatos work great as barbells for working out! 

Magneatos 011

  • We also used Magneatos to count and sort colors.

  • Mr. Smiley loved cleaning them up.  Can’t argue with that!

Letter U 022

  • They also worked as a GREAT Tot Tray toy! 

Letter U 048

  • He spent time seeing what he could find that his Magneatos would stick to . . .

Letter U 054

But his favorite place to play with them (and I am not condoning this for any of your children) was Mussie’s crate! 


For other ideas on how to play with Magneatos, head on over to Mama Jenn’s blog!  Not to mention that Magneatos are going to be the featured “Play With Me” toy over at Totally Tots!

Or if you would like to win a set for the child in your life, here is your chance. Jolanthe over at Homeschool Creations will be hosting a giveaway beginning Monday for a 36-piece set of Magneatos as part of the Guidecraft Back to School Twitter Party on Tuesday, September 28th from 8-9pm EST. 




This product was given to me for review purposes and I do not have to return the product to the vendor. I was not paid for this post. All opinions expressed in this post are mine.  And I must admit, I am enjoying being a part of the Guidecraft Mom Blog team because Guidecraft has a lot of great educational toys for children!
