We were kindly gifted the Geomag Magicube and Mechanics sets for review, however as with all our reviews, they are all our own honest opinions, and we have already bought Lily another set of the Geomag Classic as she loved them so much!
We originally came across Geomag at BlogOn 2021, and instantly fell in love! I knew Lily would be in her element with everything from Geomag, so we could not have been more excited to receive our own box in the infamous BlogOn Goody Bag.
Since then, we’ve not only bought her another set, but also have had the chance to try out even more Geomag products.
Here are our reviews…
Geomag Magicube (gifted)
The Geomag Magicube sets are designed for kids age 1-5 years, and are a safe and fun introduction for toddlers and preschoolers to the joys of magnets.
The 3D cubes are similar to palm-sized building bricks, just with magnets! With magnets on each side, it allows little ones to explore how magnets work and make their own 3D models.
They’re in an array of colours and shapes and the perfect size for little hands, along with special magnetic wheels to make your creations move!
Even though Lily is now 6, she has had so much fun with the MagiCubes, following the instructions to build all the examples in the little guide book – her favourites were the pram and the drag racer.
They’re really safe to use for little ones and a wonderful way to get young kids to use their imagination and get started in the world of construction, whether they’re following the guide book or building their own creations.
What’s more, we love how they’re made out of 100% recycled plastic – so not only a fantastic STEM learning toy, but also great for the environment too.

Geomag Classic (one set from the BlogOn goody bag, the other purchased)
How we’ve not had these in our world before, I don’t know – they’re amazing! We loved the set from the goody bag so much that we instantly widened Lily’s collection with another set to help her build even more with them!
Designed for anyone, kids or adults, age 3 and above, the sets come with magnetic rods and magnetic spheres, which connect together in their own amazing ways.
The options for building with these are endless, and even on the first day she had them, she spent six hours playing with them – I’ve lost count now!
They’re a little bit addictive and a great screen-free alternative, allowing kids to use their imagination in as many construction projects as they like – we’ve made everything from fishing rods to wind turbines together, and it is amazing to test how many magnets can hold together at once.
We also like to use the plastic shapes that come with the magnets to help form stronger bases to build up the towers and designs into even bigger options.
You can also get them in a whole range of different sets, sizes and shapes, which all work together, including Colour, Panels and even Glitter!
At the risk of sounding cheesy, kids will instantly drawn to these like… magnets!

Geomag Mechanics Gravity – Loops & Turns (gifted set)
As soon as Lily opened the Mechanics Gravity set, she wanted to get it out and set up – it definitely has that ‘wow-factor’ if you’re looking for a unique idea for a Christmas or birthday gift!
These sets are designed for those age 8 and above and, I admit, it did take me a bit of time to work out how it needed to be set up, but once I’d got my head around it and shown Lily what to do, our options were limitless.
This set involves using various plastic (74% recycled) pieces to build a circuit for your magnetic balls, where they can go up and down your own tracks that you make, meaning you even get a hidden physics lesson too!
“Mummy, this is SOOOOO COOOOL!” – the resounding response from Lily when she discovered the fun features of all the loops and turns that we could send her magnetic balls along.
Her favourite features are the loop-the-loop and the magnetic cannon, but we have already spent hours building different courses for the balls, and she keeps asking for us to build more and more different tracks.
For an educational toy that kids can play with again and again, we really do recommend Geomag.
