Chad polled our amazing Patreon members and ask them for help picking a theme for April. They choice: “Magnetic Gadgets!”
And Chad's 1st magnetic gadget is the WowWee Magnaflex Magnetic Set.
Here's what Amazon says about it: Magnaflex high-quality, flexible magnetic strips let you build anything you can imagine. Bend and connect magnaflex strips magnetically, and use their unique shape to zip or stack them together. Create animals, vehicles, wearable accessories and more. Add structure and complete your design with painted metal connector pieces that become eyes, wheels, or decorative accents. Design flat 2D or Organic 3D objects anywhere and display your creations on magnetic surfaces such as a fridge door. Have fun challenging your imagination to come up with new designs or games with this innovative, educational toy that promotes creativity, visualization and fine motor skills. $19.99 and Amazon Prime.
And Chad's take: Chad thought this was a fun set to play with. If you want a bit of help the instructions with a while series of shapes, animals, designs, etc. that you follow and build. Or just stuck magnetic pieces together and see what you come up. (That's a cat built following the instructions. You'll see him build it in this week's show video.) Chad's only concern was - is there enough variations so that a child won't get bored with creating a limited amount of things. But for under $20, Chad thought this is an interesting magnetic attraction. (By the way, if you want to build even more things, WowWee also makes a bigger $35 set and a giant $50 Magnaflex Set!)
