+ Magnetibook Mosaic Flowers $18.99
Travel-savvy, Fold-away Fun
Each Magnetibook is made within a well-designed box with a lid, making it convenient to take anywhere. It’s perfect for travel – your child can just open the cover and play. When playtime is over the slim design allows you to stash it neatly away on a bookshelf for tomorrow.
All Janod toys are designed exclusively in France and manufactured to strict quality and safety standards, meeting both European and Australian requirements. Janod uses real wood and vibrant non-toxic color finishes to make their toys.
Magnetibooks come in many fun themes, enough to suit any child’s personality. From dinosaurs to modern mosaics to funny faces to dress-up boys and girls to robots to vehicles and much more, there’s more than one Magnetibook for every kid.
Magnetibook magnets come in different shapes and colors so your child can use them to copy one of the Magnetibook cards depicting images. Once your little one masters recreating the cards, he can dream up and design his own images on the magnet board. This activity helps kids develop fine motor skills, puzzle solving and pattern recognition.
Due to smaller magnetic pieces, Magnetibooks should not be used by children who still munch on their toys. Also, you should pick a set that works for your child’s skill sets. For example, the 4 Seasons set shown above is easy enough for kids ages 3 years to 8 years, while some of the mosaic puzzle sets are geared for children ages 6-10 years. Use your best judgment when choosing a set.
Pricing & Ordering
Magnetibooks cost far less than you’d think – about $15.00-$25.00 a pop, meaning you can collect a few sets to mix it up. Check out Amazon’s Janod page for more than a dozen Magnetibook choices.
