First Rate Toy (for all ages) Dec 28, 2006
By Helen Highwater
This Christmas we bought our second set of Magna-tiles. Their play value has lasted all year, and the expansion of the set was almost as exciting as the first set. My son is disabled, and these are great user-friendly toys with which any child can succeed. They've also survived the dog's inquisitive mouth. We personally like the clear colors, but were tempted to try the opaque tiles (with opening door/window). Last but not least, the tiles foster creativity.

Not as good as Magformers Dec 17, 2011
By J. Chendea
We got these because my son's preschool teacher recommended them, but then someone else bought him Magformers, which are waaay better. These tend to fall apart more easily and the big problem with them is hard to explain, but here goes: they are straight-edged with 90-degree corners, which (with the tendency to fall apart) makes it difficult to build more complex shapes, like regular polyhedrons. The other day, my son and I made a regular icosohedron out of magformers and it even withstood a little tossing around, and that would never happen with these. Because of the shape, they fit together best at right angles to each other. I would skip these and get magformers instead.

Magna-Tiles Rock!!! May 28, 2007
"involved mom and roller disco diva"
My kids first saw these at a friends house a few months ago. Their Mom told me that no matter who comes to visit or how bored the kids are, these always get played with. I love the endless design options and ended up buying the "100" playset along with 4 of the "32" piece playsets for my sons 7th birthday. My kids (also a daughter age 8) have made every structure imaginable and continue to find new, inventive ways to play with these. I love that they add their own ideas on with their Magnetix playsets as well. I can forsee that these will help them with geometry as hands-on models that they can replicate...the uses for learning go on and on...from someone who still has all of our original lego duplo playsets, I can see this lasting indefinitely! Highly recommend this item if and when you can find it. Worth the high price!

Great Educational and Fun Toy Mar 01, 2011
By Abhishek K Jha
I'm a parent of a 2 year 5 month old girl. We introduced Magna Tiles to our kid right around her 2nd birthday. At first she was not super excited about it and tried to poke and fiddle around with the tiles for a bit but didn't develop a strong liking. We had to go on a vacation and wanted some less voluminous toys for her and ended up packing the tiles. The vacation gave us a great opportunity to show her how the tiles worked - what were the different shapes one could make, how we could build interesting 3-D structures and even integrate these tiles with her other play things (small dolls that can sit inside the structures she'd make). She quickly adopted it and spent a majority of our downtime during the vacation playing with the tiles. Once we were back home, Magna Tiles were her best toys.
There are a few key reasons that make this toy a fantastic toy for young ones:
1. Innovative use of magnets
3. Ability to foster imagination
4. Superb learning in both recognizing shapes and making new shapes
5. Travel friendliness
6. Really easy to clean
These are on a slightly costlier side but one must consider the great value and longevity (2-3 yrs) that they provide when compared to other toys you are considering. We are planning to get her an additional 100 tile set as she seems to be ready for more and we will cut down on purchasing other toys to make this happen.
Hope the review was helpful for you!

Great toy, Artifically inflated pricing Dec 02, 2011
By Thomas Lee
This is a wonderful toy. In late 2011, the big problem is that the company manufacturers in Thailand. Due to the recent flooding in Thailand, the company, Valtech, is entirely sold-out. Toy companies are completely taking advantage of virtually zero-supply and strong product demand to really mark-up the price. The company's own website lists the 32-piece clear set at $51.50, which is only 3 dollars more than the 32-piece non-clear set. the 100-piece clear set is listed on the company web site at $120 and the 100-piece non-clear set is listed at $110. By contrast, in December 2011, online toystores are selling the 100-pieces sets at up to $299 and the 32-piece sets at $100 or more. When you read comments on the toy being "over-priced," check the date of the review and consider what price the customer paid. The power of supply-and-demand.
