We've had magnatiles for approximately two months now, and my daughter has played with them every day. Magna-tiles are very open-ended and can be incorporated into practically any game. Rocket ships. Parking garages for matchbox cars. Jail cells and homes for little people and weebles. My daughter constantly amazes me by what she builds.
As a parent, I really love magnatiles too. I can see educational opportunities in them from preschool to geometry. Right off, my daughter learned that two right-triangles make a square, three isosceles triangles make a trapezoid. She instantly figured out how to build cubes and pyramids and she said, "I'm a cube builder! I'm a pyramid builder!" In addition, I use magnatiles to teach about patterns.
We have both translucent and opaque magnatiles. At times, my daughter will yank the opaque ones away from me and give me a translucent one instead. That way she can see her weebles and little people inside of her structures. So if you're choosing between the two, I'd buy translucent.
So, in conclusion, buy the translucent magnatiles! This is the best toy ever!!
It takes practice and time and patience. At first I wished the tiles had stronger magnets, but now I've come to understand and explain to my son how you build with structure and support for tall objects...just like in the real world. Some of the creations he comes up with...WOW. Once I taught him how to add support structure, he took off. Now most evenings I get asked to "close my eyes and come into the play area."
For Hannukah this year, I decided to buy my three kids (4 1/2 year old girl and twin 2 1/2 year old boys) a set of 100 magnatiles. I was concerned that the boys wouldn't understand how to stack them up, but I was totally wrong.
I got home from work last night and my nanny and three kids were building a huge tower with the magna tiles. My nanny told me that they had played ALL DAY LONG with the magna tiles and that the kids built all sorts of things with them. I was thrilled!
They were totally worth the money - just to see my three kids sitting there all working together to build something. I highly recommend the 100 piece set. 32 pieces just isn't enough. In fact, I think we need more than 100 pieces because each of my kids wanted to build a huge Empire State Building tower!
For those of you who are scared about the price tag, I assure you it is worth the money. I store them in a clear plastic container so they are easy to clean up and store. At approximately $1 per piece, I also don't want to lose the pieces!!!!
There are only four large squares. As I watched my son open it and start to build a box, I was worried that he would be frustrated by the fact there were only four large squares and a cube needs six. But he immediately realized he could snap together four small squares to make a large square, then snap together two small triangles to make a small square! Everything that people have written about the open ended play, spacial awareness and educational value is totally true. It's a great lesson in shapes, but lead to my only issue with these.
But only complaint is about the long triangles, and I can tell this is going to drive all of us a little nuts. When put together, they ALMOST make a circle. Literally, it is a crack away from a huge gorgeous circle. There are 360 degrees in a circle, so can't imagine why they wouldn't have made these exactly 30 degree angles to all fit together. You can't even shove another piece into the gap, and the magnets aren't strong enough to allow us to pull them together into a bowl. I'm going to put away half of these pieces so my kids stop trying to "solve" this challenge.
My other suggestion is to buy a light box as a building surface. They are pricey, but if you are already paying over $100 for these, look into a light box for the amazing effect of glowing pieces. The light box is also so attractive that it encourages them to keep the pieces there, instead of scattered all over the house.
