My 2 and 4 year old love it.

The pieces are large enough that we don't worry about any little one choking.
SMM
They are fairly lightweight despite having magnets in them.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this toy. I purchased it for my 1 yr. old, not expecting her to get much play value out of it initially. However, a year later it has brought her -- and her father! -- constant play value. From learning about "apart" and "together, color grouping, magnetic polarity, learning shapes, stringing together, rolling, and everthing in between, the excellence of Magneatos seems basically limitless. And although she can't build complicated structures at this point, she enjoys watching us make different sculptures that she can help manipulate, break apart, and reconstruct. Another fantastic thing about this toy is that the magnets are just the right strength -- they stay stuck together when they need to, but are also easy to pull apart, avoiding frustrating a toddler.

I recommend (and have recommended) this to everyone I know.

We bought these for our toddler several months ago. She is too little to make the constructions, but loves stringing the magnets together to make 'snakes'. She finds steel objects in the house that the magnets stick to. She likes them a lot more than wooden blocks. They are a good large size, but not too big for little hands to hold, easy to tidy up and don't hurt if you step on them!

When we saw the picture online it looked like we were going to be able to make what we saw in the picture...to our disappointment we later found out that the toy pictured on the box was not the 36 piece but actually about 150 pieces. So we opened the box and was only able to make a fraction of the structure. The concept was nice, but need to have at least 150 pieces to build something cool. The value was not there.

I bought this toy for my twin boys' 2nd birthday, figuring that their 6-yr old and 11-month old sisters would enjoy it also. One benefit of having so many kids is that almost every toy purchase will be enjoyed by someone in the household. Turns out that not a single one of our kids enjoyed this toy for any length of time after the first morning of play. The polarity of the magnets has been frustrating for them (i.e. they don't understand why the magnets fail if trying to join a positive to another positive pole or a negative to another negative pole). Also, the small clips that accompany the product immediately went into the mouths of both 2-year olds. The toy label clearly states this product is for ages 2 and up; I had to sneak these small objects (choking hazards) away from the children. Lacking the clips prevented us from utilizing the shapes that came with the product. Thus, we were left with the magnetic balls and cylinders only which allowed pyramids, cube-like structures, and ice cream cones (one magnetic ball on a cylinder). I thought this would be fun for our group, but it unfortunately wasn't.

I like this because any age can enjoy playing and building with the Magneatos. We got this for our 3 year old granddaughter but her 9 month old brother likes to play with it. The pieces are large enough that we don't worry about any little one choking.

This is a well-made product, and just the right size for younger children to grip and carry. The colors are bright and appealing and the set is brought out over and over and played with by the birthday girl (1 yr.) and her older brother (turning 3).

I got this toy for my grandson's 6th birthday and he just loves it. He and his 2 year old brother are able to play with it together and they do just that, for hours at a time. I would definitely recommend it.

This is a great idea for a magnetic toy for toddlers, however it is
frustrating to try and build something with any height because the
magnets are not strong enough.
