From Spiders to Microphones with Guidecraft Magneatos Better Builders 100 Piece Set

Guidecraft Magneatos

As a child the one thing I remember about going to my grandmother was going to her fridge.  It was not what was in the fridge that made it fun (although the cool treats were a bonus), it was the tons of magnets on the fridge.  I played with all the different kinds of magnets and learned how they worked.  This was a learning experience for me and I love that Guidecraft has made a learning tool that teaches children all about magnets, engineering and fun.


Magneatos Better Builders are a wonderfully inventive way to help children discover principles of science, construction, and engineering while developing their creativity skills. Includes handy storage bin and deluxe 22-page Activity Guide which explores magnet science and provides sample building models for all ages. Magnets are safely and securely embedded in the over sized rods. Metal balls ensure a quick and strong connection. Tested to ages 18 months plus. An Oppeheim Platinum Best Toy Award Winner. For ages 2+.

Watching children play with the Guidecraft Magneatos is a joy to observe.  The children come up with endless inventions and as they play, they learn to figure our how and more importantly why the magnets work they way they do.

Currently the favorite thing to make is microphones for everyone to sing…apparently singing is WAY MORE FUN with a microphone in hand!

The Magneatos are made of bright primary colors that just scream attention and the arms are of different lengths, configurations (strait or curved) and texture.  This is so appealing on many different levels and stimulates the senses.

And to top it all off, the incredibly smart people at Guidecraft have included a cloth container to store all these cool manipulatives.  This makes for easy clean up and instruction for children as they complete their day.
