@The NYC Toy fair 2008 there were a few magnet-blocks, but I liked Magformers the most. There are strong magnets on each side of the shapes, they magnets can move freely inside their container so you can make 3-D structures by arranging them on a flat surface and then “lifting” them up to form a 3D shape like a sphere.
