Magnetic Polydron - shaping the World's imagination Polydron products have earned the respect of teachers and pupils around the world for over 25 years, making us the leader in the field of geometric construction shapes for schools. Magnetic Polydron combines the fun of construction with the lessons of polarity. The shapes are held together by magnets which click as the coloured faces attract towards each other, forming a strong link which can transform individual shapes into simple or complex models. New shapes and panels are now available including pentagons, right angle triangles and rectangles. These new shapes will greatly improve maths and geometry developments by allowing the user to explore a greater degree of shapes and space.

Magnetic Polydron Wheels

Another new addition to the range are the ‘clip-in’ panels, which include reversible squares with a write-on/wipe-off surface on one side and a black textured finish on the back. Also available are the fantastic new mirrored panels which reflect images and bounce light off them, adding some fascinating effects which will intrigue children. The new Magnetic Polydron Wheels set is a very exciting addition – adding the dimension of movement to this very popular product. Using Polydron is fun – when children are having fun they learn more readily. From our Head Office in the Cotswolds, the Polydron team value our customers and are proud to provide the highest possible standards of service and support.
