WEDGNETiX Magnetic Building Blocks Are Fun And Challenging 3D Learning Sets



      What is a WEDGNEXTiX ? According to to two youngest boys, they are awesome building toys. A WEDGNEXTiX is part of the WEDDGiTs building set collection. These colorful pieces have magnets in them so you can build multi-dimensional structures in both 2D and 3D geometries. You can also rotate the pieces a full 360 degrees off its mating part. I love that my boys are learning how to differentiate from 45 degrees to 120 degrees  through a fun hands on toy. It is amazing that just 16 pieces can make 100's of mind bending designs. 


      The WEDGNETiX comes with a colorful booklet that has samples of the numerous designs that you can create with the building blocks. These blocks can be stacked, nested, linked and wedged together to create many designs. The booklet even shows how to make basic shapes like squares, triangles and hexagons. These building blocks are made to last and will provide hours of fun. My boys were so excited to build different things and had a hard time taking turns as they wanted to keep making a different design. The best part is the magnets are enclosed in the plastic so there is no chance of a younger child swallowing a magnet. The teacher in me thinks WEDGNETiX would be great in classrooms as these blocks encourages imagination, creativity and group participation.I just love toys that help my children learn through fun.



The WEDGNETiX construction bars come in four different lengths allowing kids to connect and rotate parts into perfect symmetries and outrageous spatial designs. The recommended age for the set is 5 years + and, unlike other building sets, these are safe to use around younger children. My boys are 7 and 8 years and this set was perfect for them but I can see older children enjoy this set as I enjoyed making designs too. The building set is great for teaching children about geometry.



Here is what is included inside the box.



About WEDGiTS: 
    The basic set of WEDGiTS building block toys resemble square donuts and diamonds with angled edges.  The five, primary pieces of the WEDGiTS toy are graduated in size, so, the blocks actually nest together and stack into the shape of a pyramid.  Mathematicians refer to these block shapes as rhombus and octahedrons.  Each block is a different primary color, so, you can imagine a rainbow effect of color in each design a child builds. The design of each block naturally aligns in both vertical and horizontal patterns for an open-ended manipulative.
