Probably too advanced for four year olds but fun for older kids, even teens
on July 23, 2015
Although the product's description has it aimed at preschoolers and those in elementary school, it seems better designed for older children ( unless they're working as a team with younger siblings). When I tested it myself, I actually found this somewhat challenging until I discovered a system for separating the colors and putting them into place. Even then it took a sharp eye to ensure that each piece fell into the proper hole - or that the magnetic stick didn't slide two of the colored "dots" into a space meant for only 1 color.
To sum it up....there is a learning curve for using this magnetic board but the temporary challenges and frustrations help develop patience and perseverance...and it does take both to get each colored dot in the appropriate space.
A couple of the pieces didn't contain strong enough magnets for the magnetic stick to pick up. Even so, it is entertaining for those 10 and up and perhaps even skilled 8 year olds. But 4 year olds? Highly doubtful.
