If, like many Dotty Hippo customers, you've tried and loved the smaller SmartMax sets, this 70 piece SmartMax Build XXL set in a sturdy container is an excellent level up for children to build even more imaginative and larger creations.
The Build XXL set includes 38 medium bars, 12 long bars, 20 metal balls and a guide to help children get started before their imagination takes over. Both the lid and the bottom of the container each offer a unique building grid to help you on your way to building original and colorful structures! The lid presents a large square grid and the bottom a triangular one.
The bars are cleverly colour coded, with cold colours having their north poles directed outwards whereas the warm colours have their south pole directed outwards. This means cold and warm coloured bars will connect together (as unlike poles attract) but other combinations will repel.
The long bars can also lift more weight or make stronger connections as the magnets in them are stronger than the magnets in the smaller bars.
SmartMax sets are all compatible with each other and have been designed with young children in mind, resulting in oversized and easy to handle pieces with no parts smaller than 3 cm. Smartmax complies with ASTM F963 and EN71 safety requirements. The parts are all glued and ultrasonicly welded together, making them very strong and virtually unbreakable by children.
Approximate container dimensions: 35cm x 35cm x 20cm. Suitable for children aged 12+ months.
