When I picked up Magnatiles at Target the other day, my intention was give them to Sebby to help his fine motor skills. I know you’re like wait, what? Hold up a minute… Magnatiles at Target? Heck yes! Target has the best toys in their awesome new online department called the Toy Emporium. The Toy Emporium has specific brands and the six themes designed to engage children in these areas: Explore, Discover, Active, Imagine & Create, and Build. Some of the toys are available in store (like my Magnatiles, though I had to ask, mine were still in the backroom) but they are all available online.
So the Magnatiles… Best laid plans. QUINCY was the one that decided Magnatiles were one of the best toys ever! It’s not that Sebby wasn’t interested. He was, a little, but Quincy just commandeered the Magnatiles.
We have been having some good old fashioned play at our house. The Magnatiles are fun for boosting fine motor skill not to mention fun family time. It’s been a real win! The kids were going way beyond the shapes that my husband initially created. Quincy went to work immediately building castles and houses and just rocking out the creativity.
She was really into it, and it was so great to see her manipulate the tiles. She has enough hurdles as a preemie so to see her so engaged in fine motor play was just great.
I want to point out that Magnatiles are designed with the bigger kids in mind, so our little Edison shouldn’t play with them unattended because they have magnets. It’s a safety thing!
I’m so so excited about the Toy Emporium at Target! We’re already talking about getting more Magnatiles to build with, and it shouldn’t surprise you that Quincy is now asking for Legos.
