What we like and what we don’t like
As a matter of fact, light up building blocks are not very new to the toy market. They, however, have added extra excitement to the conventional building block concept. Magic Stacks are yet another competitor in this market. You must remember that light up building blocks are capable of providing a glow and nothing beyond that. However, a good set of glowing building blocks can make your kids (even the adults, sometimes) entertained particularly when placed under dimmed light or total darkness. We have summarized the characteristics associated with the Magic Stacks and the information will be useful before you commit the final decision.
What we like
Just like any other set of light up building blocks do, Magic Stacks too are capable of offering nice glow with a beautiful appearance. Making it more beautiful, the light modes of these stacks can be changed; there are three glowing modes to select from depending on the preference (you can set it to glow solidly, flashing or with a fading effect).
You can simply place the batteries inside the base block and make it into a power block. Rest of the blocks can be attached to the base and each other just like you would do with conventional Legos.
The simplicity of the design is admirable too. Replaceable batteries can keep your kids entertained; removing and inserting batteries can be a part of the game they play. Also, kids don’t have to wait until the battery gets charged.
Since these blocks match with other regular building blocks, kids can try new creations with better versatility.
In contrary to the offers made with most of the other products, we appreciate the double offer comes with this product. In fact, having more pieces and an additional power block is a good thing for your kids in terms of their creativity.
What we don’t like
We believe that this product is a test marketed item as we don’t see them available in any stores at the moment. It limits your buying options and most probably you will experience later-than-usual shipping. Therefore, if you don’t want to accept probable late shipping, you may try one of the other products in the market.
Should you buy Magic Stacks?
If you are prepared to tolerate late shipping experience without looking for the options available in the local market, this product is a great deal. After all, this set of Magic Stacks can practically help your kids to think creatively and have some fun.
Total cost of this product is $27.98 ($19.99 + $6.99 Shipping + $1 web service fee). If necessary, you can go for an optional double offer (an additional set of blocks and a power block) by paying an extra $6.99 (total cost of $34.97).
