Do you find yourself always hunting for something new and different to get your child or one of their pals for their birthday or the holidays? Look no further! The recently launched Magna Color and Color N’ Glow are the perfect solution. Both products are simple to use so a child can play happily on their own.  These toys also inspire creativity while using cool new 3D Technology.

The Magna Color:

When we brought the Magna Color home we immediately sat down to give it a try. The assembly was pretty straightforward and, for the most part, my daughter was able to do it on her own.  There are some small pieces called “Magna Dots” that are easily stored in the one unit.  Just dump them on the board, insert the pens, and use the sorting system to fill everything up!

The cool thing about this toy is that there is nothing else like it on the market, at least not that my daughter or I had seen. The dots are easily moved from inside the “pens” and are pushed on gently one by one or in a long, cascading line to create a pattern using a stencil or to create one’s own design on the magnetic board. Once complete, put your 3D glasses on to view your creative magic!

Plus, clean up is easy. All your child needs to do is use the accompanying tool to slide the magnetic pieces back into the unit. After pushing the dots back into the unit, use the sorting system to easily place each dot back into its pen.  Voila! Ready for next time.
My daughter really enjoyed placing the different coloured and shaped dots around the board in her own unique designs. The 3D view was a bonus!

The Color N’ Glow:

The Color N’ Glow was a huge hit. Aside from the fact that we had to do a last minute run to the corner store for 3 AAA batteries this toy was simple to use right off the bat. My daughter loved using the existing stencils to create scenes but her creative juices really got flowing when she did freehand design.
 
She loved the fact that it was tough to see your work as you were creating it but once you turned off the light, turned on the Color N glow, and looked through your 3D glasses, everything came alive! My daughter would switch on the light, add more elements and take another look. She has taken this toy out every night since we got it!
