From birthdays to Easter to preschool graduations, celebration season has just begun—and if you're scrambling for a present for any of the above, we've found just the solution. And it happens to be up to 30 percent off during the Amazon Big Spring Sale, so the time to act is now. We're talking about the fun, interactive, STEAM-certified Magna-Tiles toys, which have racked up *thousands* of 5-star reviews from parents—including PureWow editors. Here's why we're obsessed (and our kids are, too).

Besides the fact that these magnetized shapes and figurines are simply *fun* for kids as young as age three—think of them like easier-to-snap-together Legos—they're also great for encouraging development of fine motor skills, cognitive skills, language skills, social skills, teamwork and creativity, per the brand. Their STEAM-certification also supports these claims, based on their rigorous assessment. Magna-Tiles toys also come in tons of different themes—from farm animals to forest animals, dinos and construction sites—so you're sure to find a set any child will love.

Parents say the tiles feel extremely well-made and are well worth their price (especially when they can snag them on sale!) due to the fact that the magnets feel stronger than similar brands and that their kids get tons of use out of them. One reviewer shares: "I have several grandkids, different ages, and they all love them. They are hard on them and they are very sturdy. [They] have held up great with no problems at all [and are] easy enough for 3-year-olds to build and the older grand kids love them also...Great activity for parents and/or kids to all play together."

It was also an overwhelming favorite when we tested toys for the inaugural Happy Kid Awards in 2020, with reviewers raving about how it kept their kids busy for 30 minutes to an hour at a time, much longer than other building toys we've tested. The one con has been their price, making this sale all the more urgent to act upon, in our opinion.
