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!

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.

I used this in my special ed prek classroom. It's been handled carefully, never dropped. We started using it early in February and within 2 weeks, the wooden frame and came unglued. The top white magnet board had come unglued as well so it is no longer usable. I called Mindware and got the sorry but there's nothing we can do about it.

I had to purchase new boards from Lowe's so my kids could use the shapes and cards. Love the suitcase concept since it kept everything together. My kids loved looking at the cards and finding the pieces that were needed. Great problem solving activity. Just can't figure out the problem of the poorly constructed case & boards.

Bought it for our 3-year old grandson, and he likes it (although he still likes big trucks more). My 9-year old granddaughter likes it also. Nice in a car because of the magnets.
