My children, (4.5 and 2.5) got these for Christmas, one set each. Shown here is the red and purple set which my daughter received, but they also come in blue & yellow which is what my son has and I believe another color combination. There are two shapes - 18 squares and 12 triagles in the 30 piece box. 30 pieces is enough to build decent sized shapes, but if you have a builder who enjoys elaborate structures, they may want more pieces.

They do indeed go together as described on the box. They never reject on the edge, if you flip it over the other way, it still connects. I did find that certain combinates of putting them face to face does reject and the shape has to be flipped over. The magnets are completely encapsulated in the plastic, not glued in the edges as was the problem with magnet toys which have been recalled - as these strong magnets can be deadly when swallowed. That is my largest concern with this toy, but I spent some time trying to pry apart the plastic to be sure it was secure and it flexed some but seemed pretty well put together. Given the CPSC's recalls on other toys using similar magnets, however, I will be keeping a very close eye on these.

As for the educational value, they are wonderful - my 4.5 year old daughter was immediately building all sorts of geometric shapes with it, and while my son isn't at that level, he still enjoyed stacking them and pulling them apart. This toy is a great alternative to the much more expensive magnatiles.

Update: 4 years later - these were a big hit for a long time. They still do play with them sometimes, now at 6 and 8.

I would have to say I prefer the Magna Tiles to the Magformers, although my husband seems to like the Magformers better. Our 4-year-old has not taken to them, although she has always loved her Magna Tiles. The magnets in the Magformers are much stronger than the Magna Tiles. I found them hard to pull apart and didn't like how the magnets would reject if not lined up right. That is not an issue with the Magna Tiles. There are more building possibilities with the Magna Tiles.

Magformers are great! The magnets in them are much stronger than MagnaTiles so there is less frustration/less falling apart of creations. Magformers are surprisingly simple but fascinating - my four year-old son never tires of them.

My daughter received a 50 piece set from QVC and there isn't a day she doesn't build something awsome with them and she's only 4. I'm constantly searching for new ones at a similar price, because QVC no longer carries them. Amazon has been my best option.

We leave our magformers out in the living room where it is enjoyed by visitors from ages 2 to 70. Originally we purchased one set, but soon decided to get another because our friends, our adult children, and our grandkids enjoy it so much. The pieces are sturdy and safe for young kids. People enjoy manipulating them alone or in groups. It is a versatile and enjoyable toy.

My autistic son LOVES this toy. As you can imagine buying toys for special needs children is difficult because they won't play with them "like they should". With this toy there is no "right" way so he is very happy and not frustrated. Plus the magnets snap together with a satisfying click that I think he really enjoys."

Great product, the recommendation I have is that you need several sets to make anything big or for more then 1 child. All of my children from ages 3-11 love these and they are still the most played with toy since Christmas.

My mom gave this toy to my son (4 years old at the time) for Christmas one year - she saw them on QVC and thought they were cool...she was so right! We've added to our collection little by little over the years - great toy, but a little spendy. My son is now 7 and he and his little brother still play with these ALL of the time. None have broken, the magnets are the strongest on earth (that's what they say!) and the boys have made some amazing creations. This toy is so good for the brain - remember on the SATs when you had to fold or unfold a 3-D shape and choose what it would look like once folded/unfolded? This gives that spacial and visual perception. SUCH a good toy.
