I'm a nanny and nursery teacher, and have had a couple of different sets of Connetix which I've been trying out for the last couple of years. Without exception, every single child I've looked after (age 2 to 12) has been fascinated by the Connetix tiles and will play contentedly with them, endlessly creating castles, patterns, all kinds of constructions. They are so simple, so open-ended and versatile, you can make anything with them! I chose Connetix after quite a lot of research into different brands of tiles, because they have the strongest magnets and they just look the nicest - they don't have any bars inside them or anything, they're just clear. They are also really strong children have often kneeled on them or walked on them and they never get damaged or broken. The youngest children love peeping through them to see the world in different colours and the older children (by the time they're two and a half to three onwards) start building after I've sat with them a few times showing them what to do. They soon catch on and are soon hooked on creating the most amazing things. We needed another pack because two is never enough, even for only one child! They just want to go on and on and on creating - so who am I to stop them?!
I had heard great things about Connetix but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are even better than I had imagined they would be. The tiles are larger than expected and they feel weighty and robust. The magnets are super strong which allow for very tall towers. This kit has a great selection of tiles to get started and we will definitely be purchasing more.
