When it comes to construction kits, my kids and I have always loved magnetic pieces because they’re easy to connect and tend to have a very strong bond. This is exactly what we found in GeoSmart.
We received the Lunar Rover ($49.99) to try out for ourselves and the kids couldn’t wait to get started. This construction kit came with 30 magnetic pieces in 5 different geometric shapes and 2 sets of wheels.
What I noticed first was the high quality feel of each piece. They were smooth, sturdy and colorful . . . but most of all, the magnets held a very strong bond.
Kids love to tinker and parents will feel secure with GeoSmart’s patented double-lock safety system. Each magnet is encased twice to ensure the building piece and not the magnet will be visible to young fingers. This sets a high bar for safety in magnetic construction toys.
There are images of 2 different versions of the Lunar Rover that the kids could make that actually move along the floor . . .
But they were also able to use their imagination and construct other types of creations.
What I really liked about GeoSmart is that it encourages creative thinking, eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. Some of the designs were not easy since the pieces instinctively connected to each other when they were in close proximity. It was up to my kids to figure out how to get just the right pieces together without everything connecting all at once. They found that it was sometimes easier to construct their vehicles flat and then bring up the sides for completion.
However, what really impressed me was how strong the magnetic bond was. We’ve played with other magnetic toys before but nothing could beat this . . .
All in all, the GeoSmart Lunar Rover was a big hit with my family. In fact, my kids have been playing with it every day since we’ve completed this review. That’s how I know that we have a winner with GeoSmart.
One (1) lucky winner will receive a 23-piece GeoSmart Solar Spinner ($29.99).
