Attracted to Toys with Magnets

Apartment Therapy Gift Guide 2012

One of the toy trends I noticed this year was an increasing use of magnets embedded in toys. And why not, I still find magnets kind of magical. These ten toys utilize magnets in all kinds of creative ways, from building to retrieving to just plain holding stuff where you want to hold them.
