This is a great set -- it comes with two horseshoe magnets, a bar magnet, a vial of iron slubs and a vial of iron filings. The magnets are durable -- despite being dropped on tile floors and outside on the concrete. Recommended for anybody.

We use it with two magnet books:

1) What Makes a Magnet? (Let's Read and Find Out)
2) Magnets (All Aboard Science)

It's perfect for a summer homeschool science unit or just fooling around.

MAGNETS ARE REAL -- they are not for kids who might eat them.

I wanted a magnet kit for some simple science experiments for my 7-year old daughter.

This kit had everything I was looking for: 2 horseshoe magnets, 1 bar magnet, a tube of iron filings and a tube of (very) tiny steel pieces.

The magnets are small but strong. A booklet of magnet related experiments would have been a big plus. Overall, a decent value for money.

I bought this kit for my 8-year old boy science project focused on magnetism. The kit comes with nice magnets and good iron filings to visualize magnetic field. My son and his friends played with it for a while but got bored shortly thereafter. Great kit for educational purposes and (somewhat limited) fun.

I purchased this for a science fair project my first grader is working on. Like other reviewers, I agree that the quality of the magnets is good, and the magnets are durable. The kit comes with a two inch horseshoe-shaped magnet, a one-inch horseshoe-shaped magnet, a two inch bar magnet, and also a tube of iron filings, as well as a tube of very tiny steel pieces.

I also agree that a basic book on magnets would have been very helpful. I purchased several titles to give my daughter basic information on magnets, presented in an interesting manner:
What Magnets Can Do (Rookie Read-About Science)
What Makes a Magnet? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)
Janice VanCleave's Magnets: Mind-boggling Experiments You Can Turn Into Science Fair Projects - contains simple to slightly more complex experiments

My grandson loved these magnets. They are good and strong - one flew right out of his hand and attacked the fridge! He's having lots of fun and learning, too. We bought a couple of books on the topic of Magnets. Jury is out on which book he liked best or is most effective teaching tool.

I bought the set for the science project I'm doing with my kid. The magnets are way too small to do actual science experiment. It's a nice toy if your kid just wants to play around. I couldn't make a compass out of it. We tried to make needle magnet, but it didn't last more than one and half minutes.

Good quality magnets. I bought these for my after school program because I can't stand the cheap plastic coated ones. The tubes filled with metal granules are not sealed. They are meant to be opened and dumped out so you can manipulate them with magnets. Not ideal for a classroom or busy after school program, but rather better suited for 1 or 2 children to play with at home in that way.
