As a member of the Guidecraft Educator’s Blog Team, I am continuously impressed with the high quality, educational toys that are available at Guidecraft! The latest toys added to the exceptional Guidecraft collection are PowerClix. This innovative building system is a big hit with children of all ages 5+ as it promotes endless creativity and infinite design possibilities.

Guidecraft PowerClix Review

PowerClix are made of vibrantly colored translucent pieces that click-together instantly using magnetic force. The children’s faces were beaming when they realized that the pieces join together effortlessly to make building a breeze. My eight year old future architect was so impressed that he launched into a speech about the “dynamics of magnetic force” as he proceeded to start building his “city”.

Children can build so many different objects including bridges, skyscrapers, geometric shapes, houses…..the sky is the limit! There are step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow or kids can try our favorite use which is for open-ended play. The kids are engaged in play for long periods of time and this is a frequently requested toy for both class and playtime. Each of the PowerClix pieces is very durable and designed to safely withstand lots of child play so it will be sure to get lots of use of the years.

I appreciate that Guidecraft has so many wonderful options like PowerClix that don’t require batteries and encourages children to step away from electronics and battery operated toys to engage in active play that is creative, educational and fun.

    have a set in my preschool class, it is one of the children’s favorite items to build with. I am always amazes how often the children gravitate to these magnetic shapes. The best part is, they are able touse them on the light board for an even more interesting way of building.

    Hi from Western Australia,
    I have not seen this product in WA but think it looks fantastic. The building and construction opportunities would be endless fun. From 3D models to even 2D on a magnetic board, my Pre Primary children would love these. I will be keeping a lookout in Catalogues over here in OZ!!

    I like the storytelling books by Steve Light. Wow what a great way to get kids thinking about beginning, middle, and end of stories As to retelling. Great for comprehension!
