Building possibilities are endless with this ultimate, 105-piece building set! The Starter set includes all the interchangeable, colorful magnetic frames and 3D panels needed for kids to create different structures and stories every time they play. Set includes square and triangle magnetic frames, paperboard panels for drawing, jumps, tracks, and tubes to watch Oggs race through. Comes complete with blue and red Oggs heads that function as “marbles” (meet Bax and Wren!) to roll down ramps and attach to the two included bodies, cars, and accessories for endless ways to play. Helps with development of focus, fine motor skills, and valuable problem-solving skills as kids pop panel pieces in and out of magnetic frames to build, play, design, and repeat. Compatible with other magnetic building sets, Squaregles is STEAM approved.
