The original creation of a toy is nearly always the best, and this is certainly true of the Geomag magnetic toys which have seen many imitators, but none as good. Distributed in the UK from 2013 by toy company First Celtic Toys, (who also distribute Tolo Toys), Geomag is an excellent educational tool as well as a great toy.
In its simplest form the Geomag toy system is merely a collection of magnetic rods and balls, but when linked together, they can create the most fantastic objects of great strength. The introduction of the 'Wheels' sets enables kids to push their Geomag car creations around the floor, and adds a whole new dimension to this exciting toy.
In the classroom, Geomag magnetic components can help teachers demonstrate principles of maths and physics as well as the building of models to show the shapes created during chemical or biological experiments. The introduction of plastic panels to infill some of the shapes made by the construction of buildings or random 3D objects, has also helped the Geomag toys to appear even more realistic.
As a construction toy, Geomag is a very young company compared with Meccano or Lego, but its unique simplicity has enabled Geomag toys to take a large slice of the construction toys market in a relatively short space of time. Kids love the strong pull of a magnetic field, and even the sound made when the Geomag pieces click together has endeared it to all its worldwide fans.
