Toys fit for 2018 need not only be fun and engaging, but also facilitate brain development.
Magformers’ new, innovative Sky Track sets promise both when motion and engineering meet magnetic construction.
Following their unveiling at the London, Nuremberg and New York Toy Fairs, these unique sets are making their first appearance in Australia at the annual Melbourne Toy Fair 4 – 7 March 2018. The unique combination of magnetic and monorail parts that can build various functional systems will sure impress children and all those young-at-heart!
The ‘Future Jobs Report’, published by The World Economic Forum, notes problem solving, creativity and cognitive flexibility within the top ten skills required for future jobs. Children will have plenty of fun whilst mastering these skills and more, including fine motor, logic and concentration from simply playing with the Sky Track sets.
Recommended by both Forbes (UK) and The Toy Insider (US) as one of the top toys for 2018, the Sky Track 44 and 64 piece sets are created by the Internationally renowned educational toy brand, Magformers, which has been the recipient of an impressive collection of International awards every year since 2009, including Oppenheim Toy Awards, Creative Child Awards, Family Choice Awards, Brain Toy Award and the 2016 Australian Educational Product of the Year.
For the co-director of Magformers Australia, Opal Kiang, the ingenious invention of the sky shuttle monorail system marks a significant step in the development of magnetic construction and creative innovative play. She explains,
‘All of our products are designed specifically to promote brain development. The Sky Track sets are one of a kind because children have to design and create a fully connected track, including using various moving parts for the sky shuttle to go over. This is definitely unique in terms of the more complex fine motor skills involved, and the best thing is the sets are compatible with all other Magformers sets. There are engineering principles covertly at work in the moving parts, which add another dimension to play and learning.’
With magnetic shapes seamlessly integrated into what is also referred to as the roller coaster track, this revolutionary toy is without a doubt the toy for the 2018 child. Kiang adds, ‘Hands-on creative play is fundamental to Magformers, but when it is coupled with principles of gravity, motion and engineering, the play value of the toy becomes apparent.’
