The history of magnetic building toys development

The history of magnetic building toys development

With the discovery of magnetic materials and nearly a hundred years of development, magnetic toys, as an emerging main force in toy products, are becoming more and more popular with children. Even toy giants Lego and Disney have begun to use magnets in toys.

What kind of toy should be chosen, many parents have come into a misunderstanding.
Many parents think that toys are just to entertain their children, but more and more educational concepts have proved that play can also develop children's intelligence and thinking logic.

So why is the toy industry changing with each passing day, but most children only have three minutes of interest in most toys? One of them is that the developers are doing their best to develop impulsive consumption just for parents. Then these toys will eventually be forgotten by the children in the corner of the storage box.

Choosing the right toys, I always agree that educating children must be independent and independent. Toys are his "playmates", so they must be chosen carefully.

The most important thing is the age-appropriate age. Only age-appropriate toys will not give a child a sense of frustration and make him more closed in his self-awareness. Can you let a one-year-old child build a house? So choose toys that are of the right age and can stimulate his creativity at the same time. The selection of toys must be "fine"! A good high-quality toy can mobilize the unlimited potential of children, far better than countless "dispensables".

After 12 years, as a parent of a junior high school student, the founder of Dailymag, Charles, has some experience in buying genuine "precision" toys and would like to share with you. He believes that when you are 2-6 years old, you don't need to buy other toys. And really think it's necessary to get one set of Magnetic building toys

Is there radiation when playing with magnetic tablets? Does it have an impact on health?
Many parents may have such concerns. Will there be radiation when playing with magnetic films for a long time? Does it affect the baby?

The magnetic building toys has no radiation, but there is a magnetic field. At this time, someone may have asked if there is any problem with the magnetic field. Of course there is no problem. Imagine that the earth we are on is surrounded by a magnetic field, and you have nowhere to escape. The magnetic field of ordinary magnets is harmless, except that the arrangement of atoms inside them changes when they are close to each other, thus attracting them together. From another perspective, some healing uses strong magnetism, which proves that some magnetism is beneficial to the human body.

When it comes to building toy building blocks, the most we know are Lego bricks. The basic building blocks have a variety of styles. The combination principle is to use the micro-elastic deformation of the plastic to generate friction through the insertion between the head and the slot. It can build hundreds to thousands model shape.
However, the magnetic building toy and the building block are completely different construction forms. The biggest feature is that the magnetic building tile combines each piece through magnetic force and restricts each other. It can be lifted from 2d to 3d, and children can analyze geometry from flat to three-dimensional. Cultivate children's reverse thinking.

The picture above is the first generation of magnetic building toys, born in the late 1980s, composed of straight magnetic rods, curved magnetic rods, and iron balls. The magnetic rods are made of iron core wrapped in plastic, with a small The neodymium magnet disc, the small ball is made of pure iron, and it looks bright after chrome plating. The magnetic rod can firmly attract the small ball, and the small ball can be attracted by 6 magnetic rods at the same time, so it can be used as the center of the connection. The ball and the magnetic rod attract each other to form a huge three-dimensional net shape, and then increase or decrease the number to form different shapes. The periphery can also be inlaid with square, triangular, hexagonal, circular and other plastic pieces to make the shape more plump and bright. This toy has been popular for 20 years. Thanks to the mature production of neodymium iron boron magnets, the cost of magnets has been greatly reduced. Therefore, neodymium magnets can be popularized in toys in addition to being used in high-precision industries. But this toy also has shortcomings, because a single piece is small, it is easy to be swallowed by children, causing many dangerous accidents. In 2008, the United States began to introduce a bill to prohibit children from playing, and this toy gradually faded out of the market.

American Dr. Riley Dean Henz invented the magnetic film toy in 2006, and the first generation of magnetic building tile was officially launched(Magformer brand)! Because the magnetic building tile covers a wide range of ages, is strong in playability, and has far-reaching significance for preschool education, it has quickly become one of the popular STEAM educational toys in Europe and the United States, opening a new chapter in educational toys! This kind of magnetic sheet is relatively large in size with 3 inches in length and width, which eliminates the risk of being swallowed by children. The neodymium magnet is still used inside, which is a small cylindrical shape. There is a magnet on each side of the magnetic plate, and the shape is mainly square and triangle. It has been popular until now.

In 2008, a Neocube toy called QQmag came out.  This is a concept invented by Dailymag. This idea This is a combination toy of multiple neodymium magnet balls of 3mm-8mm. The number is usually 125, 216 and 1000, because this can just form one 5x5x5, 6x6x6 and 10x10x10 spherical cubes. This neodymium magnet ball toy is very magnetic and can be combined into cubes, necklaces, footballs, cones, crowns and other shapes by itself. Because it is light in size, bright in color, and pure metal, it is loved by children and adults. The limelight has even overshadowed the Magnetic Building Tile. However, this strong magnetic toy also has a fatal weakness. It is smaller in size and easier to be swallowed by children. , And the magnetic force is too strong, causing greater risk to life. Therefore, it was banned for children under 13 years old after 2 years.

In 2015, the second generation of Magnetic Building tile came out. It used a better quality plastic shell. At the same time, the neodymium magnets were replaced with a larger number of small ferrite square magnets. The magnetic force distribution is more even, avoiding single The magnetic force of a magnet is too strong, and the four corners of the magnetic sheet have no magnetic force. You can build larger objects with higher layers. Children can build models as tall as their own height, which is more fun and scalable. At the same time, the shape is greatly enriched. The Dailymag produced 'Dailymagic brand' Magnetic Building Tile has as many as 11 shapes, which can make the model more vivid.

Why choose Dailymagic Magnetic Building tile?
Dailymagic Magnetic Building tile toys, 10,000 children will have 10,000 ways to play. Each child's imagination is different, and the things they create are also different. Just like building block toys, they are all educational toys. Such toys should be very interesting. Got it.

So what are the advantages of Dailymagic Magnetic Building tile?

1. The Magnetic Building tile is powerful enough, you can explore knowledge in various fields, and improve children's cognitive ability. Cultivate a sense of three-dimensional space construction, mathematical logic and graphic understanding, and improve practical skills.

2. Educational toys
The magnetic sheets are easy to store, and they can be easily glued together. After being folded, they basically take up no space. It is not too convenient to carry and play at will.

3. Easy storage
The magnetic film can be played from 3 years old. . . My age (haha) is no exaggeration, but the play cycle is very long, and I like it too.

4. Safe and long play life-Environmentally friendly ABS plastic shell, no electroplating and pollution-free high-performance ferrite magnets. The plastic shells are combined with ultrasonic welding technology to firmly wrap the magnets. The ferrite magnets have moderate magnetic properties. The arrangement of multiple particles makes the magnetic distribution of the magnetic sheet. Evenly. It has no effect on instruments that are sensitive to magnetic fields.
