At a recent toy fair that my family and I attended there was only ONE toy that my 4.5 year old son went back to play with a second time. It was SmartMax!


When he started playing with it I was reminded that he actually received the SmartMax Drive & Fly Kit many years ago but it was clear that he was ready to play with it again.

So when we got the opportunity to try out the SmartMax Build XXL box I knew that he would love it! Inside the super sturdy box are 70 magnetic pieces: 12 long bars, 38 medium bars and 20 balls. And the box isn’t just for storage! There are handy grids on both the lid and box base to be used as a platform for building. The high quality pieces are safe for children 3 and over, and will keep children of all different ages busy for some time.

SmartMax also offers add on sets like curved pieces and tubes for making a ball run. All the sets are compatible and the more sets your child has – the more creative their building gets! F was definitely very pleased to try out this toy again!

He started filling in the lid, and got very excited when he discovered he had made the letter ‘K’! Finally he started to build upwards.

Until he got to this very cool tower… which was knocked down mere seconds after I took this photo!SmartMax - a toy review

Going forward I will merge his two sets together and see what he can come up with. I will also set him challenges – can he use every piece, how tall can he build etc.
