We love some Magna-tiles around our house. My kids like to build cool structures with them, and I love how easily we clean them up (thanks to those magnets). So when we heard about the new Eric Carle + Magna-tiles collab, we got excited.
Yes, cool art on awesome toys is something we getting excited about. #momlife
This collaboration exposes kids to educational concepts like colors and numbers (just like the beloved books) but they can also be used to create cool 3D shapes, like a barn, duck or caterpillar. But they’re only available one place, and we have the link.

You can find these toys in Target stores, starting March 1. We had a chance to try out the Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do you See? set with my daughter, and it’s her the first toy she grabs each morning when she wakes up. We added this set to her regular Magna-tiles, and we are using it to practice her colors and animal knowledge. I set them all out and ask her to choose the “horse” or “bear.” She loves it.
If you haven’t had a chance to play with Magna-tiles before, trust me that the magnets really are strong enough to hold these cool 3D shapes. Your kid won’t be frustrated with it constantly collapsing.
So, if you’re an Eric Carle fan or have one in your house, this is definitely a toy you’re going to want to add to your collection at home.
