Magna-tiles Sesame Street Colors with Elmo set is a colorful, fun new way for kids to get creative and use their imaginations to build and play. Our friends at CreateOn.com gifted us a set to play with and share our thoughts….
There's a five year gap between my boys in age, so there aren't a lot of toys that they share an interest in… except when it comes to building sets. They share a love and curiosity for construction type activities, so given the chance to build something they both jump right in and play along like peas in a pod.
So when I pulled out the new Sesame Street Magna-tiles I knew they would both have fun with this set. Beckham is all about Elmo right now. We watch tons of Sesame Street so his eyes lit up as soon as he saw his favorite furry red friend on the packaging.
This set features 10 squares with Sesame Street characters on one side and an Elmo puzzle on the opposite side. There are also 6 triangle shaped pieces labeled with colors and a large Elmo hexagon shape. It's compatible with other Magna-Tiles® Structures and original Magna-Tiles® Sets so you mix and match to make even bigger creations.
We love Magna-Tiles and have been playing with them since Brady was Beckham's age. They are well-made and last through hours and hours of play thanks to the scratch-resistant coating. I love that they are perfect for little hands and travel easily. I can bring a set along almost anywhere so the kids can play in the car, at restaurants, on vacation… anywhere!
We're really working on Beckham's words so these labeled triangles are great for teaching colors and shapes.
