was a welcome addition for Christmas with its unique design. I gave it to eldest as a present from the
blog as it came with perfect timing. I
could not say it was off Santa though, as he would have questioned why I was reviewing
it afterwards! My boys are too clued up
now after over two years blogging.
Eldest thought it was “beautiful” and “really cool”, I
think he was so keen as he loves building blocks and LEGO so this having
magnets instead was a welcome change for him.
It was intriguing seeing all the components fit around the metal
sphere. Mid build he thought it looked
like a turtle shell, he was very animated and engaged, chatting non-stop about
it! He seemed to follow the
instructions okay, there were clear pictures to help you with the build.
did get a little frustrated by it at one point as the pieces slipped off as
there is some movement with the magnets.
But this did give him the opportunity to build and rebuild again and
again till he mastered keeping it in place.
It is easier if you prepare the additional bits (the eyes, crest etc) on the cover prior to slotting them in to the structure.
toy with great potential for imaginative play as you have lots of building
possibilities, you could come up with your own original looking creature! The 71 pieces well accommodating whatever
your child decides upon. For children
5+ it provides plenty of challenge and development potential.
