The product for this review/giveaway was provided by Manhattan Toy. All opinions are my own.
All three of my kids love to be creative. It's one of my favorite things to sit back and watch them do! It's a big party of any child's development, and I love to encourage a love for creating in any way I can to help their imaginations grow even more! That's why I was excited when introduced to the new Magnetic Playsets from the award winning imagine i CAN play kit line from The Manhattan Toy Company! All games and kits feature appealing tin boxes with a carry handle, perfect for those on the go this spring and summer!

We have had the opportunity to review a couple of products from The Manhattan Toy Company in the past and have been impressed with the quality, age appropriate design of their products. That's why I was thrilled to learn more about the latest imagine I CAN Creative Kits and that we were going to have the opportunity to review one.
We were sent the Imagine I CAN Travel Time kit to review.
This specific kit was one I knew my boys would especially like. They like all things having to do with transportation vehicles, so the moment it arrived, they were begging to check it out!
I love that it comes in a great tin box with a carry handle. It's sturdy and something that isn't going to get smashed like a cardboard box does. It's also perfect for storing all of the pieces and carrying on the go!
Of course, aside from the great tin, I too was looking forward to checking out the 104 magnetic pieces and 4 paper background scenes inside!
What's great about this set is that it allows kids to use their imaginations and engage in open-ended play! When given the opportunity to let their imaginations soar, kids don't get bored and want to play again and again. I LOVE that!
My boys were drawn to the different background scenes. Once they decided on one, they simply positioned it inside of the tin and it was time to let the fun begin! They take the magnetic pieces to create such amazing pictures! It's so fun to see their creativity at work each time they pull this fun magnetic playset out! The sky is the limit to what they can create, which makes it even more fun...especially for my four year old! He loves it!
These kits were created for ages 3 years and up, but even my 2 year old (with supervision) enjoys it a lot! We are planning on traveling quite a bit this summer, so I looking forward to being able to take this kit with us in the car and the motels we stay in. It would also be great for a plane ride too!
Now that I see how great it is, I'd love to get the other two new imagine I CAN Creative Kits!
The Character Mix-Up Kit looks great, and is one I have a feeling my daughter would adore! In this kit there are endless combinations of characters and creates with 101 magnetized pieces and 4 paper background scenes. Kids simply place the background scene on the inside of the tin box and then add the magnetic pieces to the scene however they wish.
Fashion Friends is another one I know would be enjoyed by my kiddos, especially Kaelyn! Little fashionistas can enjoy making their fashion statement by mixing and matching outfit and accessory pieces. There are 85 magnetized pieces and 4 paper background scenes.
No matter the magnetic playset, kids are sure to have a blast engaging in open-ended, creative play where they can use their imaginations and have fun! I would definitely recommend these kits, especially for these spring/summer months when families are on the go a lot more! You can learn more by visiting Manhattan Toy.
