A magnetic toy block (10) and a kit suitable for the composition of toy assemblies. The magnetic block (10) comprises a hollow body consisting of a first (10A) and a second (10B) shell member, identically configured with peripheral contact surfaces to contact with peripheral surfaces of other magnetic blocks of an assembly; each shell member (10A, 10B) is provided with male (14A, 14B) and female (15A, 15B) junction elements, which may be press-fitted into the female junction elements (15A, 15B) respectively into the male junction elements (14A, 14B) of another shell member in an assembled condition of the block. The junction elements (14A, 14B, 15A, 15B) extend inside the hollow body of the block (10) in a direction parallel to a reference axis, at magnetic contact zones (10') (10) of the peripheral contact surface of the block; permanent magnets (16) or ferromagnetic connection elements are housed in the female junction elements (15A, 15B) of one or both shell members (10A, 10B) of the toy block (10).
