A completely new magnetic construction system, the KOR GEOMAG range allows children to construct endless combinations and enjoy different play experiences from one toy: construct, transform, disassemble and re-assemble.
KOR is a patented system of 26 magnetic building blocks that connect onto a hollow metal sphere tocreate the toy’s core. By adding covers the toy takes the shape of a rugby ball, which can then be twisted, turned and flipped to generate endless shapes. Children are able to then transform the KOR into any fantasy character they imagine by adding their chosenaccessories that come with each set.
The tougher ‘Proteon’ line enables children to create heroes and primordial beasts to pit against one another in epic battles after these KOR asteroids land in hostile environments where they have to fight for evolution. Each of the five Proteon building sets are reflective of different tough natural environments such as rocky, swampy and volcanic, with each character differentiated by their covers, unique masks and weapons. The Proteon KORs are available in three different forms of construction and character evolution - from the simple ‘AKI’, via “TAUREX” to the further evolved ‘BLATTA’, ‘VULKRAM’ and ‘SWOMP’.
All KOR GEOMAG building sets across both theTazoo and Proteon lines are compatible, allowing imaginative kids even more creative freedom andgiving parents the best return on investment for purchases.
The set arrived and was opened with much excitement lots of nice chunky pieces and pictorial instructions which were easy to follow. The instructions show how to make a character but then show variations as well. We got 'paco' from the Tazoo line, he is a forest dwelling creature who can become a frog, a lizard, a beetle or an owl.
We decided to go for the creature shown on the front of the box and quickly got the swing of things, all the pieces fit around a central metal ball and then you build up with differing shapes, a gentle hand is needed as we learned when we pressed too hard and the whole lot broke apart! After a little bad temper we started again and soon got into the swing of things.
- The colours are bright and cheerful
- Really fuels imaginative play
- Lots of variety in what you can create even with just one set, but as the sets are compatible the possibilities are endless.
- I love that theres a story behind the toys, It really fed the Golden Child's imagination
- Nice chunky pieces for little hands
- It would be nice to see more variey in the Tazoo line as there are only two types to collect, but there are plenty of options in the Proteon range
- With an RRP of £25 per set these are at the higher end of the toy scale for Monkeyfeet towers, but they are a great birthday or Christmas Gift and they are in my opinion just as entertaining and engaging as Lego or Playmobil (with bigger part, thankfully) and I think price wise you could pay much more for a large lego set.
