Magnetic building blocks are construction blocks designed for children’s play that include an interior magnet. The magnet allows the blocks to hold together, and allows for creative and inventive play. Magnetic blocks are not very thick. They are more like a tile than a building brick. The magnets allow for unique shape construction that does not have to rely on the large, flat surface of most building blocks. Most-often magnetic building block sets come with tiles in a translucent plastic material of a variety of colors. These building blocks work well on a light table because the light will shine through the different colors. Choose a set with a variety of shapes in order to help add to the creative options.
