These things are great! The are a little on the small side, maybe about the size of your thumb, but they are fun. We have 3 kids, one 4.5 year old boy and two 19 month old girls. They all love playing with these magnets. I’m sure as parents most of you are worried about toys with strong little magnets in them and the possibility that your little ones might swallow them. We were worried about that too but the plastic on these things is really tough, I have already accidentally stepped on them several times and haven’t made a dent in the pieces at all. It seems highly unlikely that the plastic pieces would break and the magnets fall out, the magnets are all completely sealed in each piece, no seams or joints to break open. The colors are nice and bright without being tacky or eye searing. The kids love that they stick together and they have a great time pulling them apart and putting them back together. Another nice thing about this toy is that you can make some pretty interesting and complex geometric shapes rather quickly and easily and it’s something that will hold their attention well…..until they decide to smash it! One of the best perks about this toy (for parents) is that they clean up really well. Because they all stick together it’s easy to clean them up and have them clumped together in a small box or bag since the only drawback is they don’t come with their own container.
I bought this to take to my mum’s house so the kids have something different to play with there. Mission accomplished, they have had hours of fun with this seemingly simple toy. I did need to buy two packets though, as 60 really isn’t enough for 2 boys, and I’ll probably order 2 more packs to make it really enough to do lots more without too many fights.
We have had children aged 3-10 enjoying this toy for long periods of play. At first they copy the pictures on the box and later they make their own creations. The girls especially like the rainbow of colors to use in their design. And I like that the pieces are large enough so as not to be a choking hazard.
I HAVE ORDERED 7 SETS! I am a preschool director, and have ordered 5 for my classrooms and 2 for my grandchildren. The kids have had a blast with them, and the adults ALL have gotten involved in the fun as well! Yes! Buy them now!
We sent the Magz-Bricks to our 6-year old grandson. His older siblings wanted to play with it as much or more than he did.
Great toy for kids to learn with regarding building and strength.
All my children (9 yrs old, 7 yrs old, 3 yrs old) love to play with this! I should have bought another set, but it’s kinda pricy for me, so my kids will just have to share it. It sticks well together, colors are vivid. I don’t see any cons in this product at all. Great buy. I’ll buy one for my niece when she turns 2 yrs old.
Not that bad
