Magformers is a wonderful product. Unfortunately, this means you can now find plenty of lower quality magnetic toys on the market.
Please do not consciously buy fake or counterfeit Magformers for various reasons, but the most important reason being your child’s safety.
Never let your children play with magnetic toys where the magnets might come loose, or with loose magnets.
This is why genuine Magformers are subjected to regular safety testing to ensure the pieces are made to a very high standard, so that the small magnets are encapsulated safely and will not come loose even with a reasonable level of abuse during play.
The Magformers sold through the Magformers Store, and our authorised stockists are genuine Magformers and have therefore been safety tested to the relevant International and Australian Toy Safety Standards.
We provide warranty, support and after care to genuine Magformers products purchased from the Magformers eStore or authorised stockists.
It is simply not worth the risk to buy fake products. This is especially the case for toys containing magnets!
We recently bought a set to see for ourselves just how dangerous these fake products are.
We have decided to post the following photos as a warning to anyone considering buying fake products.
