Geomag Police Triple Pack Review

Much to my 9yr old son's delight, we were sent the Geomag Police Triple Pack to review from Flair.

Geomag is an ingenious magnetic construction system using magnetic rods and chrome spheres to build geometric shapes and when combined with the flexible and easy to use panels, you have the ability to build cars which are easy to crash and rebuild. 

New to the Geomag family is the Police series of cars which includes;

The Geomag Police Car (SRP £9.99) which can be rebuilt over and over again and even attaches to the helicopter for double the action.

The Police Helicopter Set (SRP £8.99) which has a spinning rotor blade and can also be rebuilt over and over again and combined with the Police Car
(the two above items are available separately or as a Police Chase Twin Pack SRP £16.99)

The Police Truck is available exclusively only as part of a Police Triple Pack (SRP £24.99)

The pre-cut plastic shapes were easy to use, although I soon realised to make sure you fold all the folds before attempting to build the models as it made it slightly easier to do and also punch out any holes.

My only complaint with the Geomag models is that we struggled putting the wheels on the cars as the magnetic rods seemed a little short. We were finally able to get the wheels on the Police Car but had to give up with the Police Truck. This also made the model's more fiddly and harder to build, especially for smaller hands and caused my son to lose patience. However after a visit from Granddad he showed us we were putting the wheels on wrong as the ball doesn't just balance inside the wheel it actually clips inside the wheel! Once they were built though, he had lots of fun playing with them and loved the fact that the helicopter could carry the car. A bonus is the little police themed accessories such as signs to help make game-play more realistic.

An ideal toy for any little boy who loves cars and/or the police with the added bonus of being able to build and rebuild the cars and helicopter themselves (a little help might be needed the first few times) adds a whole new dimension to playtime and making it more realistic!

The Geomag Triple Police Pack is available in Smyths Toy Stores for £24.99

We were sent a Geomag Triple Police Pack for free on the understanding I would write an honest review of what I thought about the product. I received no payment and the review is my own honest and unbiased opinion of the product and I retain full editorial control and integrity.
