SmartMax is the magnetic discovery concept that enables children, even from a very early age, to experience both the wonders of magnetism and the fascinating world of construction in a safe way. The extra-large pieces make it easy for small children to manipulate them. The magnets have the ideal strength for easy assembly and breakdown of constructions. The outstanding colorfully-illustrated booklets in each set guide you through the basics of magnetic phenomena, show ways to strengthen structures, the steps in building towers and bridges, and carefully present the construction projects in easy to very-difficult sequence. Perhaps most importantly, of course, children thrive on the creative satisfaction of dreaming up their own wonderfully imaginative magnetic assemblies! Ages 3 and up.
