 Magformers is a three-dimensional magnetic toy that develops children’s creativity and aids in their brain development. 

  The Magformers Magnets

The neodymium magnets inside Magformers pieces allow every piece to attach to each other regardless of their north or south pole. Not only do Magformers pieces stack like normal building blocks, but they can also connect three-dimensionally and in any direction.

 Magformers for Creativity and Brain Development

Magformers is the foremost three-dimensional magnetic educational toy for nurturing child creativity and brain development. Children can create their own original structures by connecting and assembling various geometric figures.

Children can observe how two-dimensional shapes become three-dimensional structures, and by doing so, understand the principles of magnets and expand their limitless imagination and creativity.

The Six Ways to Use Magformers

Six very simple methods can be used to create any shape or figure

Magformers is a world-leading manufacturer of magnetic children’s toys. Recognized with multiple awards and educational accolades, our tile sets stimulate critical abilities across age groups with years of safe, quality play time.

Your only limitation will be your imagination and with so many different colours you’ll have a hard time picking your favourite. 

Unlike some other construction toys, which limit children to building only specified models, Magformers pieces can be used freely and with imagination, allowing children to build any shapes they like – as well as following the building guides contained within each set.

Magformers magnetic construction sets encourage 3D Brain Training through fun and education. The free-spinning magnets are safely encapsulated within all the edge surfaces of each toughened ABS plastic Magformers piece. And because they can rotate in any direction, they always connect and never repel when two Magformers are brought together. 

Internationally, Magformers has received more than 50 global educational and toy awards. Children can use basic Magformers geometric shapes to create 2D ‘flat’ plans (known as nets), but also 3D figures. It’s very easy to lay Magformers flat, forming a mathematical net, and pull them up to form 3D towers, cubes, and other shapes.


Improves scientific thinking while creating a variety of models using the principles of magnetism. Science gives children an in-depth understanding of the world around us. It helps them to become better at research and critical thinking. – need to flesh science out


Develop designs from 2D planar figures to 3D models.
Fosters the infinite imagination of children while they make geometric shapes as well as unique models


Developing modelling skills through building blocks by hand. Enhances intelligence for 3D configurations while making 3D shapes.


Encourage the combination of technology skills with artistic activities, like creating an animated story


Develops mathematical thinking while combining and connecting blocks to understand and utilize concepts of space and principles. Spatial concepts, parts and wholes, patterns, principles of shapes etc

Children as young as 18 months can start playing with products from the Magformers My First Line. The combination of shapes, colours and, in some sets, more technical accessories, will give your child the tools to create unlimited designs! 

Imagine how happy and excited your child will be when they show you their latest creative design!

Imagine how proud you will feel when your child has mastered the art of 3D modelling, all the while being conscious that your child is learning and developing their brain while having fun!

Imagine having the colourful pieces in your hands right now!

What would you and your child build together? A vehicle (Plane? Helicopter? Car? Bus? Truck? Bike? Boat?) An animal? A building? One of the seven wonders? A castle? A bridge or other structure? Furniture? A robot? A dinosaur? A tree, flower or plant? Fruit? A unique geometric design?

The possibilities are endless!
