Whether you have a kid at home or are still a child at heart yourself, you might always be searching for toys and activities that don’t involve a screen. The Tytan™ Magnetic Building Tiles are reminiscent of Lincoln Logs and LEGO® with a modern twist that can teach STEM skills to kids, or provide stress relief for adults. For a limited time, get a 60-piece set for $33.99 (reg. $39.99), an 80-piece set for $41.99 (reg. $49.99), or a 100-piece set for $39.99 (reg. $59.99).

Keep kids entertained and away from screens

The Tytan™ magnetic building tiles come in various shapes and colors, allowing for thousands of different creations. Build with shapes like hollow squares and tall triangles, or parts like window panes and a wheeled base vehicle to create buildings or 3D moving vehicles.

When children three years of age play and explore with these tiles, they’re fine-tuning their motor skills, building confidence, and boosting their creativity. They’ll also be interacting with STEM concepts like shapes, pattern recognition, magnetic principles, problem-solving, structural building, and more early on. And, of course, this toy might get your kid away from their TV or tablet screen for a little while. 

An included carrying bag allows for quick cleanup and simple portability. Bring the tiles along on a trip, outside, or anywhere else your child may want to play.

It’s fun for adults too!

Kids aren’t the only ones who might have fun with the Tytan™ building tiles — why not join your kids or play yourself? Researchers suggest that play for adults can help relieve stress and improve your overall physical well-being. Also, they may help you spend a little time away from your phone or your latest Netflix binge-watch.
