Geomag Mechanics is a building platform that combines the forces of magnetism with a world of mechanical construction, to stimulate creativity, inventiveness and ingenuity. In addition to steel spheres and classic magnetic bars, Geomag Mechanics adds mechanical elements within buildings, extending the play possibilities: some parts of the structures can rotate, thanks to chain reactions triggered by repulsion or magnetic attraction.

Geomag Mechanics Review

This is marked as ages 7+ but does not be fooled. I tried this with my 8-year-old and she lost interest pretty quickly. Set up is cumbersome and takes a long time. I had to read back through the instructions, pieces had to be put on the right way round, without any real way to tell. As a 33-year-old, I found this incredibly difficult to do. At the end of the whole process, it didn’t even really work, I had to apply sellotape to parts to stop them from moving around.

The idea is that the pieces can be used in a couple of different ways, but this then means they don’t “click” into place. Sometimes I had to carefully balance a piece, and laughed trying to imagine a 7-year-old trying to do this.

Overall, Geomag Mechanics isn’t something I would recommend for children at all. Adults may have fun building it with kids though.
