Advantages & Disadvantages amongst Attactiles, Connetix, Playmags, Magna Tiles, Picasso & Magtelier:

We chose to stock Playmags when we first decided to share this STEM toy with parents at our online store. Why? Playmags come with stronger magnets and that attracted us as a strong selling point as it allows us to build taller, bigger, hardy structures.

Fast forward 2 years later, new brand players appeared in the market, including our Magtelier Diamond Magnetic Tiles by Fifth Avenue Kids and the latest, newest Star Diamond Magnetic Tiles.

With magnets as strong as Playmags, and other attractive benefits including asthetics, versatility, less scratches and lighter weight, it became a natural progression for us to stock what we love and the best for our customers. 

We have 2 different designs under Magtelier by Fifth Avenue Kids.
