For more than 10 years, Magna-Tiles have been entertaining kids from preschool and up - and their parents and teachers - as a durable, engaging toy that helps develop small-motor and cognitive skills through hours of open-ended play. "Developmental toys make a
difference," said Doug Morris, owner of "Regardless of age, kids learn through play. They need educational toys that are engaging and open-ended. A great learning toy like Magna-Tiles provides different possibilities each time a child plays with it."

Lightweight, geometric tiles of varying shapes, sizes and colors, MagnaTiles offer kids the ability to construct infinite numbers of two- and three-dimensional shapes and figures. The edges of each tile are safely embedded with ceramic magnets.

While imagination is strongly encouraged, Magna-Tiles also comes with an Idea Guide featuring suggestions for sparking creativity. For example, Magna-Tiles can form figures as advanced as elephants, spaceships, flowers, goldfish and even the Eiffel Tower! Used in thousands of preschools nationwide, teachers say that kids play with Magna-Tiles for longer periods of time than many other toys.
