Magnetic toys can prove fun and educational for your toddler, while limiting your clean up. Young children can enjoy games, play dress up, complete mazes and learn through playing with magnetic toys, many of which are travel-ready. Toy stores and websites have a wide selection of toys from which to choose and you can customise your choice to suit almost any toddlers' interests.


Parents can find a variety of magnetic mazes, including those in the shapes of dinosaurs, skeletons and farms. Many of these mazes are self-contained with an attached stylus for easy transportation and they contain balls in two different colours so kids to trace their progress. This type of toy is suited for kids over two years old.

Dress Up

Different companies make magnetic dress-up dolls, brides and grooms and even mix and match characters for kids two and up. Djeco makes a product of wooden characters with different character outfits for your toddlers. With this toy, kids can make a boy with the body of a pirate and cowboy boots or a girl with a crown and the body of a bandit. They simply need to stick the pieces to a metal surface, such as the front of a refrigerator.


Magnetic toys are a great way for younger children to express themselves using colourful shapes and figures. Kushies Zolo Stacrobats lets children over one year old build their own circus out of the magnetic figures and balls. The set comes with five figures and three balls, all with spots, squiggles and stripes in different vibrant colours.


Most children enjoy building cities and worlds out of almost anything they can get in their hands. Encourage this constructive behaviour for kids over two years old with the Magneatos Jumbo 36 piece set. The set is made up of a variety of magnetic connectors -- both long and short -- and circles, all with different bright colours. What makes this toy a great option is that the pieces stick together magnetically, making them harder to lose than regular wooden blocks.
