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.

My two year old son loves these magnets! They are too big for him to choke on if he were to try to eat them. The plastic casing is strong and hasn't separated at the seam like I thought they might after some use.

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.

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.

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!

My 4 1/2 year old sun plays with this for an amazingly long time. He comes up with so many different seemingly magic ways to make the magnets move each other or stick to each other. The cards and the pole make for some fun puzzle time and figuring out but it's just the fun of these magnets that keeps him going for an unusually long amount of focused.time.

I got several sets of magnets to teach my grandchildren science this was one of them. The quality is excellent and they will be around a long time. The floating magnet really shows how a maglift train system works and other things we use in modern life.
