What a great find! I stumbled across a recommendation for the Magnetic Match Rings on a mommy blog, and -- as I was in the market for magnetic exploration toys -- "ran" right over and ordered one. I purchased it for my 3 year old (to entertain her while I homeschool her 5 yr. old sister), but I will say that she's a little young for it. She can do a great many of the cards without my help, but as far as setting it up and resetting after each card, she requires assistance. My 5 year old also enjoys it and is able to play with it more independently. I think it's a great learning toy; not only is my child learning about magnetic polarities, but there's the spatial visualization skills of seeing the card and transferring that pattern/orientation to the actual magnets. Throw in some fine motor skill practice (and "floating" objects to boot!) and you've got yourself one hit of a learning toy!

This is a pretty simple toy, but it has lots to teach. It is great for fine motor skills, for visual discrimination and it also is a hands on way to learn the basic rules of magnetism.

The set comes with 40 (20-double sided) match cards so there are plenty of combinations for your young one to explore. The magnetic stand breaks down into two pieces and the set comes with a travel bag (a.k.a. a clear ziploc-type bag) so storing it is nice and easy.

My 4 year old can play with it independently or we can do it together to learn new concepts. She is currently going through the cards numerically which is reinforcing/teaching her to visually recognize numbers up to 40.

The magnets are in a very thick plastic coating..., so NO BROKEN MAGNET ISSUES like with similar products. And the magnets are strong. Strong enough to shoot off the post. The base has a magnet in it too so when it is not in use it stays together (so long as your line up all the polarities).
I really like the addition of the challenge cards! there are 20 challenge cards, with a different challenge on each side, making 40 challenges.

I admit found these magnets mostly for a "craft" project ... I needed round magnets to make "fishing rods" for a fishing game at our preschool fair. I thought they were cute and a good price since I only needed the 10. I also wanted them "kid friendly" and like that they're colorful but not painted in case youngers put them in their mouths. For that, they have been PERFECT.

Bonus, since we had the first set in the house for a while before I made the rods, now I'm buying a set to keep. Not their favorite toy but they do come out periodically and, when they do, I always get a "Hey, look what I did!" So, I've realized, we all like having "play" magnets in the house. Kids can play the game(s) as designed or use them for other projects and experiments. These are pretty, colorful, fun, educational. The cards and storage add a major bonus versus some of the basic magnet sets and I personally like rings ... you can tie onto things, stack easily on rod or pencil, etc.

Good product, great price.

BTW, can't tell yet about durability but will update if they crash and burn at some point. I do imagine they could break (esp hard plastic colored covers) but we've had several 3-4 foot falls onto hard tile floor already with no ill effects.

Wonderful tools. Children love to play with them. Great educational visual. The resource cards are great because children are challenged to recreate the sae image. It really helps people understand the magnetig forces and SEE their interaction. I've seen adults surprised and learn from this activity, too. I use this for demonstrations, activities, lessons, and family science nights. Love them!

Three of my kids (ages 7, 5, and 2.5) all love this toy. The cards are easy to match for the older two, and while the youngest still needs some help with it, they all love it when it's their turn to use it. The magnets are strong and can be used in fun ways off of the stick as well. It comes with a ziplock bag for storage, but I have it in a plastic pencil box instead.
As a mom, I think this toy is great because it is:
1) educational
2) open ended
3) affordable, and
4) easy to store: I didn't realize that the stick could be removed for storage, but it was a pleasant surprise.

I will be buying this as gifts for nieces and nephews and kids' friends from here on out!

I'm wondering if I don't like these more than my son. He loves them too, but they are really fun to use. I like that they are easily portable. I keep ours in a little tote which holds the cards and the base/rod. It's a great visual matching science game for kids with special needs. I was looking for something with magnets that was more than just the wand picking up those colored chips. This definitely fit the bill for my son with special needs... and I get to have some fun too! It's a win-win.

This is a great learning tool for young minds! I have it in my science area in my classroom (ages 3 years - 5 years). The children can easily understand the picture cards and figure out if the magnet is "sticking" or "floating". One down side is that when you start doing some of the picture cards that have more magnets they get heavy on each other and the space in between smooshes together. This definitely isn't a huge deal, but something to be made aware of.
