Magnatiles for the Parenting Win
Magnatiles are a great gift for kids of all ages.Since we have 4 kids (ages 6, 4, 3, and 1) it's really hard to find a toy that they ALL like (read: impossible). But we might have gotten close with Magnatiles. They are so simple to use that our baby likes to watch the magnets attract, but offer enough flexibility that our oldest can build skyscrapers and cities. They are a ton of fun for the middles, too.
But...Magnatiles aren't cheap. The brand name ones are probably the best, but we opted for the slightly better value of the off brand crew. Check out the link below.
