The Green Collection, newly released from Geomag, offers toys made from 100% recycled plastics. Not only will these toys delight and entertain little ones in a wide age range (and maybe a few adults, as well) they're made from sustainable practices.
Each year, plastic toys contribute immensely to the buildup of plastic in oceans and landfills. By choosing toys made of recycled plastic, parents can practice environmental sustainability and provide that important basis for their children. These toys are built strong, to help survive the test of time. Since they're made of all recycled materials, they have immense potential to reduce the environmental impact caused by plastic toys. Equally importantly, the Green Collection from Geomag provides immense benefit for little learners.
These 100% recycled plastic toys come in a variety of sizes and kits for the Classic Colour and Classic Panels Range, including:
The Geomag 100% Recycled Classic Colour 42 Piece Set:
The Geomag 100% Recycled Classic 93 Piece Collection:
The Geomag 100% Recycled Panel 52 Piece Collection:
The Geomag 100% Recycled Panel 78 Piece Collection:
The Geomag 100% Recycled Panel 114 Piece Collection:
All of these collections can work together to create larger, more intricate structures.
The Geomag Green 100% recycled plastic magnetic toys help build vital STEM skills at many stages of development. Magnetic building tiles and rods are ideal for children over the age of three. Even adults, however, will enjoy building with these magnetic pieces.
Coordination skills. Magnets are perfect for developing coordination in little learners. They can explore their world as they experiment with the way magnets pull together or push apart. Little ones will learn how to manipulate magnets, including flipping the magnet around to get the response they're looking for.
Fine motor skills. Both the magnetic panels and the magnetic rods are small pieces that little ones must manipulate carefully in order to get them in the perfect position for their building. While the panels are easier to grasp than the smaller rods, they still require fine manipulation to position them perfectly for each construction the child chooses to create. Through continued efforts with their building toys, many little ones will notice an improvement in their overall fine motor skills.
Problem-solving skills. Through their interactions with their magnetic building blocks, children will have the chance to develop their problem-solving skills. Sometimes, the magnets will not form the shape they want. Other times, the limitations of specific pieces or a specific set will influence the way the child can interact with the pieces. Through their continued building efforts, they will be able to create stunning constructions and work to solve problems that stand in their way.
A better understanding of magnets. Magnets see a lot of uses in the scientific community. Through their play with the Geomag Green 100% recycled plastic magnetic toys, children of all ages can develop a better understanding of the way magnets work. These toys can also be used in a variety of other experiments and STEM activities.
Instruction-following or pattern duplication skills. In addition to free play with their Geomag magnetic building blocks, children can work to follow directions or recreate increasingly complicated patterns. The more they interact with the toys, the better children will be able to follow those instructions and learn more about pattern duplication.
With so many STEM activities and skills to choose from, the Geomag Green 100% Recycled Plastic Range has the potential to offer children hours of play and brain-building activities. Not only are they an excellent way to introduce STEM concepts through fun play, but they also offer an eco-friendly alternative to many of the plastic toys currently filling the market. These toys are an ideal addition to any child's toy collection.

New in 2015 to the Geomag range is the Glitter, Panel and Colour Ranges, and the Geomag e-motion range.
The Glitter Range has Rods and Panels made in fashionable and fancy glitter colours for the fashion conscious child :). While the e-motion range is all about creating movement, giving life to some surprising optical effects.

The story of the range of GeoMag continues with the Wheels Range. The Geomag Wheels line allows your child to build a vehicle using magnetic rods, spheres, wheels and special plastic frames.
After they have built their vehicle, they can then launch it at incredible speed. Talk about the fun they can build, launch, destroy and then rebuild them in a unique play experience. They can build a dragster, police car, to a super off-road vehicle, or a helicopter or both depending on the set purchase.
The last two in the Geomag range that we wanted to share with you today are the Kor Tazoo Range and the GeoMag Kor Proteon Range.
The TAZOO family is made of 2 different characters BETO and PACO. They both landed on the earth together in two different environments. Depending on your child’s preference for the sea or the jungle, these little magnetic creatures represent hours of fun and learning.
