The Magnetix iCoaster takes construction toys to the next level. Using the immense power of magnetism, it allows kids to construct the very first magnetic roller coaster, complete with drops, jumps, and loops. Recommended for ages six and up, the iCoaster is a state-of-the-art multi-sensory experience that will completely enthrall kids and adults alike.
An included Music Studio allow kids to put a soundtrack to their coaster.
An Exhilarating Ride
Multiple loop-de-loops, trampolines, and magnetic track sections show the power of magnetistm.
The iCoaster combines speed, high-tech design, and magnetism into one package. As with all Magnetix toys, the basis of the iCoaster is magnetic power. The coaster's "car" is a 15-millimeter metal ball -- or "rider ball" -- which is propelled along the track through magnetism. Kids will be amazed as the rider ball seemingly levitates on the track of the coaster at high speeds, and they can construct the iCoaster in up to 10 different ways. Because it uses magnetism, the iCoaster is also capable of some jaw-dropping stunts. The ball will go through loop-de-loops, trampolines, sheer drops, and corkscrews. It will even "float" across broken areas in the track. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the "magnetic elevator," which carries the ball up a shaft through magnetic power alone. If kids could board and ride this coaster, it would easily be the most thrilling ride ever made!
Your Own Soundtrack
The iCoaster also comes with a Sound FX and Music Studio, which kids can use to put a soundtrack to their coaster. It features 4,000-plus distinct musical combinations, adding to the excitement with sound effects. The possibilities don't stop there: Kids can also plug an MP3 player into the music studio and choose the perfect song for the coaster. With this feature, kids can play everything from "Flight of the Valkyries" to the latest Billboard Top 40 hits. Crank up the volume for maximum excitement and adrenaline.
Great Educational Benefit
Whether they are building a vehicle or a skyscraper, kids will be totally captivated by Magnetix, as they explore the power of magnetism and learn how it works. In addition to teaching them the basics of magnetism, Magnetix can also teach them other valuable things. It will go a long way in developing their creativity, by encouraging them to use their imagination to concoct new designs and structures. It will also refine their fine motor skills and hone their ability to focus and be attentive. In addition, Magnetix can boost their reasoning skills, as it requires them to follow directions and find unique ways to solve problems.
Magnetix is one of the most popular construction toys in the world. By harnessing the power of magnetism, Magnetix allows kids to construct creative, gravity-defying structures. Magnetix toys were released by Rose Art Industries in September 2003, and have since branched out into several different toys, such as the successful "Magna-Man" line.
