Geomag Mechanics Magnetic Track game (not an app)

With lockdown this year and many schoolchildren spending extra time at home, there has been an increased need for good educational games, so we've taken a look at this fun construction game for 7-11s, focusing on magnetism ...

Henrieta Kuhudzai writes:

"This Magnetic Track game is really fantastic for children (and adults) who love to build. My boys and I had a fantastic time building the magnetic track and watching how the magnetic balls and rods interact with each other, depending on how you place them.

"I am not one who naturally opts for building games, but the instructions help parents like me along brilliantly. My 4-year old son would never have known that I was not a pro. Apart from the actual building, I really enjoyed the quality time, working together with my two boys and building their problem-solving and spatial skills."

Available from toy shops and online for around £29.99
