This is an awesome product!
We homeschool our twin 4 year olds and they absolutely LOVE it.
Everyday we pick a card and make the shapes.
I like this one because it has 50 shape cards to copy.
All the others only had a few.
It will take a long time before we tire of these shapes.
The cards are NOT as big as the shapes. (that was a surprise to me)
I would buy this again tomorrow if I needed too!!!
I am so glad we purchased this!!
I gave it four stars for durability because the cards are "cards" ..... so they can be bent and torn.

=========== 2013
Two years later and we still play with this.
My kids are now 7 and they make their own pictures with it.
However they still challenge each other with the cards.
Their are pictures on both sides of the card.
I like the soft handle.
To keep the cards from sliding out of the box seam (where the hinges meet) we put them in a Ziploc baggie and it fits perfectly in the case.
Two years later and every piece of it (case and all) still looks brand new!
Super happy with this purchase.
This is a great gift as well.

I bought both these items for my 3.5 yo - so this review is based on this age range.

While the concepts are similar, my son (and I) like Mighty Mind better than MindWare Imaginets for the following reasons:

Mighty Mind cards are numbered to show increasing difficulty
Mighty Mind comes with cards that are numbered. As the numbers progress, so does the difficulty. This is important for younger children because it starts them off with the easier ones and helps build confidence. They can progress without getting too frustrated in the beginning and giving up. Imaginets cards are not numbered. Yes, you can flip through the stack and kind of see which ones are easier, but the numbering system of Mighty Mind is really helpful for gradual progression and confidence building.

Mighty Mind is actually a puzzle that encourages creative reasoning
Imaginets comes with cards that show exactly which tiles go where to create the picture on the card. The child simply needs to find the matching block and put it in the right place as shown on the card. Mighty Mind only shows the OUTLINE of the image you are trying to create. It is up the to child to figure out how to fit the pieces together to create the picture. Mighty Mind is more like a real puzzle, where Imaginets is just rote recreation of an existing lay out.

Mighty Mind has multiple "solutions"
Imaginets has only one solution, which is to re-create the exact picture on the card.

Bought this as a birthday gift for my 3 year old grandson who build shapes for hrs the first day as we all did. He built shapes following the pictures on the accompanying cards as well as structures of his own design and kept at during his two week visit. The strong magnets keep the tiles in place on the white board. Very well constructed. Can be used as a white board with the appropriate pens.

I bought this set for my 4yo, but as it turns out, it is a hit with her older siblings, too. It is super durable, portable, colorful, and great for creative and educational value. Worth every penny!

I had to chime in on this product, even though I see there are more than enough reviews on this already.

Bought this as a Christmas present for our 3 year old twins, based on positive reviews on Amazon.

Not disappointed at all. Kids found this engaging and interesting from the time we opened it. The magnetic boards, self closure, and self containment make this a great toy to clean up, maintain easily, and take along.

The cards are all intact so far, but perhaps they will wear out or get lost and will need replacing.

The instructions, and the shapes, are simple enough for toddlers to follow along - unlike the more complex thinking required in Tangram types of puzzles.

We have built about a quarter of the shapes so far. Since the sense of accomplishment is just in assembling the shapes to form the pictures, each picture can be reused after a reasonable amount of time - nothing is being solved, so nothing is to be lost by repeating.

Each shape is good for about 10 minutes of work for a toddler, with adult help.

We love it so much, we've since given several of this as gifts to other toddlers in their class and/or neighborhood for their respective birthdays.

These are very cute. Its kind of an easier tanagram for my younger kids to do. The pieces are durable, and the carrying case it comes it keeps it all together well.

We haven't had this long, but so far I am impressed with the quality and design. The case is great as a fun place to build the shapes and for keeping the pieces when not in use and also for traveling. We have not used it as a "dry erase" surface yet, but I just learned there are very cool-looking DRY ERASE CRAYONS and that looks like a blast. Save paper! Be green!! This makes me extra glad I purchased this. Eventually I can see drawing in backgrounds around the objects we build.

The magnets on the blocks have just the right "strength." They stay put, but are not difficult for little fingers to pick up. It is too soon to see whether the magnets will peel off easily, but I will keep my eye on that and keep super glue handy. So far, so good. My just-turned-2-yr-old has a positive reaction to the toy and makes his own pictures even though he can't quite follow the patterns on the cards yet. But I figured it would be good to get early exposure to get his brain "formatted" and comfortable with these somewhat abstract representations. He can recognize most of the pictures on the cards for what they are and enjoys the toy in many ways though he's not quite using it as intended. I can see this toy getting many years of use as he grows into it. *I* certainly have fun making my own designs, too, since I'm a bit of an artist. My brain loves this kind of thing. :)
