Designed for hours of play and ideal for travel, this wooden magnetic board and blocks set includes 120 colorful geometric magnets. Younger children will enjoy using the shapes to replicate the 12 geometric pictures included, while older children will enjoy creating mosaic patterns and pictures directly on the magnetic board. This set comes packaged in a convenient snap-top plastic carry case with sturdy handles. The Melissa & Doug wooden magnetic board and blocks set is an exceptional developmental toy that can help children develop multiple skills. Parents and older kids can help a child identify each shape (hexagon, square, parallelogram, trapezoid, triangle, and rhombus), challenge the child to make shapes out of other shapes, or create a sequence with shapes and ask the child to continue it. The Melissa & Doug Magnetic Pattern Blocks Set makes an exceptional gift for kids from 3 to 6 years.
