Geomatrix STEM Approved, Award-Winning Toy Review & $100 Prize Pack Giveaway {Pumpkin Patches & Wins Giveaway Hop}

If you've got one or more active young boys in the house, you probably know how precious some "quiet time" can get. I have found building toys to be fairly good at keeping my boys busy and having fun for hours without making too much noise. Better yet, they encourage creative and interactive play. Just a few weeks ago, my boys welcomed a new addition to their building toy collection - Geomatrix, which has won STEM Approved certification and ASTRA's Best Toy for Kids 2017 in the constructive play category.

Consisting of 15 magnetic pieces, Geomatrix helps kids understand the dynamics of geometric shapes while enhancing their imagination, creativity, motor skills and design skills. Geomatrix is no ordinary magnetic building toy, because it features the use of the world's strongest magnets: rare earth neodymium magnets. With up to 12 powerful magnets in the corner or point of each piece, the shapes can attach to one another on all sides! Besides, the magnets rotate freely to make sure that they always attract.

Geomatrix can be played solo or with competitors. The Balance Game suggested in the activity booklet that comes with Geomatrix is fun for players of all ages, yes, including grown-ups. Players take turns adding pieces trying to make the next player add a shape that will knock down the tower. The player that adds the last standing piece wins the game.

The game is great a family game night or a play date. The kids can learn about weight distribution through the game. I love how the pieces can twist and turn to make unexpected changes in the balance of the structure. Instead of competing with each other, my boys ended up working together trying to keep the tower stay as tall and as long as possible.

The Geomatrix pieces are very easy to maneuver and attach with precision. The activity booklet includes a number of examples that players can use for inspiration. My boys created various structures and objects. They even made use of the metal part of our desk to build a monorail. They wish there were more pieces they could use to make something more complex. The good news is that a 27 piece set will become available this October and more game modes will be introduced too!

The Geomatrix 15 piece set is available for purchase at California Creations for $29.99. The 27 piece set will be priced at $49.99. when it's officially launched. The folks at California Creations can be easily reached by email or by phone 714-259-1900. Or you may visit the company at 15135 Woodlawn Avenue Tustin, CA 92780 if you happen to live close by.
