Review: Geomag’s Magnetising Marvels During Lockdown

DISCLAIMER: We received this Geomag set for free in return for a review. All opinions are our own.

Geomag's magnetising marvels

In the chaos of lockdown life, H and I, parents of the mighty Cyrus, found ourselves on a mission for fresh, engaging ways to keep him entertained. Cue Geomag toys.

At Christmas, Cyrus unwrapped a Geomag set from Santa, sparking a newfound love for STEM exploration. For those not in the know, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths – the building blocks of a child’s understanding of the world. Little did Santa know, he was planting the seeds for a future Persian “Mohandes” (engineer).

In our Persian household, STEM toys aren’t just playthings; they’re the tools that cultivate problem-solving skills, creativity, and the kind of curiosity that can fix household gadgets. Who knows, maybe one day Cyrus will design the ultimate kebab-grilling robot!

But first, let’s take a look at Geomag, a STEM building game born in the creative mind of inventor Claudio Vicentelli in Switzerland. Little bars with magnets and marble-sized balls conspire to create wonders, and that’s Geomag.

Geomag’s Magnetic Charms:

STEM, But Make It Fun: Geomag blends science, creativity, and engineering, providing a vibrant canvas for Cyrus to explore the invisible forces of magnetism.

A Greener Playground: Amid the plastic pandemonium, Geomag shines as an eco-warrior. Crafted from recycled plastic, it ensures a sustainable playtime without leaving a trace of plastic guilt.

Geomag Review Time

Cyrus took the Geomag Classic Panels 35 Pieces and Geomag Confetti for a spin. Spoiler alert: We were not disappointed.

C’s Engineering Marvels: Armed with 58mm magnetic rods and steel marbles, Cyrus constructed an array of structures. From bridges rivalling Newcastle’s Tyne Bridge to creative concoctions, he was in his magnetic element.

The instruction diagrams proved a breeze for our little architect. He embraced the challenge, often disassembling and rebuilding structures. It was the perfect solution to screen-free focus time during lockdown.

Stealthy Learning

Geomag’s genius lies in disguising education as play. Cyrus delved into investigative explorations – testing where the rods would stick. Spoiler: Our fridge front door, and a few pennies became his magnetic canvas.

Our Verdict

Geomag isn’t just a toy; it’s a ticket to screen-free bliss. As Cyrus embarks on more complex creations, we’re convinced Geomag will remain our trusty ally in the parenting adventure.

So if you’re on a quest to unlock the secrets of STEM while reveling in giggles and magnetic marvels, Geomag might just be the answer.
