COSMOS Toys: Magnetic Spaceship Building Blocks
Date Published: 12/11/2015 6:18 AM
Cosmos is a beautifully designed set of wooden blocks that allow you to create spaceships by simply snapping the pieces together however you'd like. Due to the mix-and-match pieces that are able to be snapped into place by using magnets, the number of different shaped spaceships you create is infinite, or at least pretty big like 12 or 27. Created to be a simple and minimalistic wooden toy that's meant to inspire creativity and exploration, the Cosmos magnetic spaceship wooden blocks are not only fun for kids to play with, but also could be cool for adults to use as a desk ornament or something to fidget with while thinking and trying to get the mind churning.
The Spaceship magnetic wooden blocks come in 5 distinct sets. a shuttle that has 7 pieces with 18 potential connection types, a rocket with 7 pieces with 16 potential connection types, a satellite that has 5 pieces and 11 potential connection types, a lander that has 5 pieces with 8 potential connection types, and a ringed planet that has 4 pieces and 5 potential connection types. Or you could buy them all and get 28 different pieces and have a potential connection number that is probably pretty big in which someone smarter than me will have to tell you, my guess is in the range of eleventy quabillion.
By interchanging the pieces from the different types you can create other space objects including a voyager probe, a fighter jet, a martian, an alien lander, the Hubble telescope, an intergalactic starship, an interstellar rocket, a Saturn rocket, a surveyor probe, or whatever your little mind can come up with.
The pieces are made from solid beech wood with unique grains, which some of the pieces will have a smooth matte finish, while others will have a soft touch finish, and are all able to be connected to one another by using a patented neodymium magnetic system.
The Cosmos magnetic spaceship wooden blocks are currently in a funding phase on Kickstarter with an estimated delivery date of June 2016, so go reserve yours now, or get more information on their website, and be sure to check out the wooden blocks in action via the video below.
