MagnaPlay Toys (Review & Giveaway -Closed)

I am so excited to introduce a new toy company to you! MagnaPlay asked if I would be willing to let my kids try out some of their toys. I agreed, and they sent me the MagnaPlay Magnetic Activity Travel Set with the Wooden Magnetic Number Match Up Puzzle and the MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set.

When the MagnaKases arrived on Tuesday afternoon, I wouldn’t let the boys open them. I’m so mean. I know. But, I really wanted to put them to the test on our drive to the dentist on Thursday. However, the boys wouldn’t stop asking to play with them. They went to bed really well for me that night, so I allowed them to play with their new toys first the next morning.

First, they had to decide who was going to get which case. Jace loves blue, so he asked if he could have the bright blue MagnaKase. It had wonderful magnetic number matching shapes in it. He played with it for the longest time and was so proud of himself every time he found a match. I love that the shapes are not only fun, but Jace is also learning while he plays with them. He has a hard time with sight-words, and these shapes have already helped him learn what the number words look like.

Here’s Jace enjoying his MagnaPlay Magnetic Activity Travel Set with the Wooden Magnetic Number Match Up Puzzle:

Zander got the dark blue case filled with markers and lots of dry erase activity pages. He loved them! He easily read the directions and knew just what to do. I’m pretty sure that in the last few days, Zander has done each sheet about 10 times. He never gets bored with it, and I love that it’s helping him improve his reading skills.

Here is Zander playing with his MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set:


Even Lucy joined in the fun! She loved matching up Jace’s number shapes and counting all the adorable pictures on them.

When we drove to the dentist which, as you know, is 2 hours away, the boys played with their MagnaKases the entire time…. There and back! At one point, I listened as Zander would write a word on his Kase, and then ask Jace what the word was. If Jace didn’t know, Zander would help him sound it out. Then, they would both draw a picture of the word that Zander had just written. They were nice to each other! No fighting. No screaming. No “He touched me!” Nothing. Just 2 little boys playing nicely with each other…. something this mom has only dreamed of until now!

I love MagnaPlay toys! They are wonderful when we’re on the road or at home. The kids love playing with them, and I love that they are educational *and* fun. Living in the mountains, we have to drive everywhere. The grocery store is 20 minutes away, Walmart is about 45 minutes away, and the mall is almost 3 hours from us. Keeping 5 kids entertained for that long is next to impossible. However, MagnaPlay has proven that siblings can get along on a long trip, and they can have fun while learning!

If you don’t think that’s enough, I’ve got *more* benefits of the MagnaPlay toys for you:

  • The toys are safe – CPSIA Certified
  • There is no other magnetic case on the market like the MagnaKase.
  • Can be used with other magnetic toys and activities you already have at home.
  • 2 Magnetic surfaces for tons of creative play, and plenty of storage space inside the case.
  • Comes with 2 magnet strips that can secure coloring pages to the activity surface. Great for coloring with crayons, markers, or pencils at home or on the go. You can even download coloring activities and puzzles on the MagnaPlay website.
  • Easy to carry, and easy to clean up!
  • The write-n, wipe off front of the case means your child can customize his case any way he wants to over and over again!

I am going to be ordering a MagnaKase for Lucy soon, and I will also be ordering some more activities to go along with their cases.

    This is such a great offer! I really like the travel cases, If I don’t win I’ll have to order at least 1. 🙂
    My daughter is starting to learn to read, she also really loves to color and the fact that you can secure the coloring pages to the surface is wonderful. I take her lots of places with me and she tends to get bored in the car so this would be just perfect for her. Also we have really been working on numbers and letters with my son.

    So what is not to like? I like it all! I can so see my daughter playing with this at home and in the car. It’s perfect for her. She’ll be entering kindergarten and it’s just the right things for her to be learning and doing! Plus there are some phonics involved and schools by us don’t do much with phonics anymore. What a blessing! I can see my 9 year old wanting to play to – especially the color/puzzle sheets.

    Gee, do I have to post again since I follow you on Twitter too?

    I like the number and letter match puzzles. KK knows her letters and numbers but putting names to numbers and sounds to letters would be so totally cool for her.
