Can you tell me a bit about your business and the inspiration behind your products?

CONNETIX is an Australian owned business that provides open-ended, STEAM accredited magnetic tiles, designed to grow with children as they learn and develop. Featuring strong magnets, enhanced safety features and a unique bevel design for clearer refractions, CONNETIX effortlessly blend learning with play.

The award-winning magnetic tile packs are designed to foster creativity and spark imaginations, naturally encouraging the development of fine and gross motor skills, plus supporting cognitive, social and emotional development – all while children explore the world first-hand.

Our mission is to drive learning through open-ended resources, and we do this by demonstrating the important STEAM learning concepts children discover simply through engaging in open-ended play. Children will explore magnetism, gravity, force and motion, shape recognition, reflection and refractions – bringing learning to life as they create their very own masterpieces.

We take pride in bringing to market high-quality, innovative products that families will enjoy for years to come.

The CONNETIX catalogue offers a variety of packs ranging from compact Mini Packs for the ideal gift, to mid-sized Creative Packs, all the way through to Mega Packs, perfect for bigger builds, education facilities and family play. Additionally, the CONNETIX range features speciality expansion packs including the Transport Packs for vehicle enthusiasts, Geometry packs for shape exploration, and the exclusive Ball Run packs for zooming action and fun - catering to a diverse range of play and learning needs. With an entirely compatible range, CONNETIX offers exceptional play value as families enjoy highly interactive and endless play possibilities.

In what ways has being a finalist of Gift of the Year affected your business?

Becoming a finalist in the prestigious Gift of the Year award for 2024 has provided us with a wonderful opportunity to generate positive publicity and media exposure, helping us to further enhance our brand and presence, particularly in one of our target regions within the UK. As a young, speciality business the GOTY award offers an exciting platform to expand our valued partnerships with retailers and affiliates in the industry, and proudly showcase CONNETIX to new and existing customers.

Which are your favourite products throughout the rest of the awards?

We’re loving the finalists in the Children’s, Educational and preschool category as this is a core area of our business, providing this sector with open-ended resources that grow with the child. It’s exciting to see an increased recognition of the importance of STEAM educational resources and real “hands-on” learning products – our brand is committed to sharing this message.
