Hands down, one of the most interesting toys ever made. I owned this toy as a wee lass, and my memories of it are so strong that if I was in an extended coma and one whispered the words "Wooly Willy" into my ear, I would instantly come back to consciousness. Whatcha do is use the included magnetic wand to position the fine metal filings onto Willy's mug in order for him to acquire facial air. You just drag the filings to your desired location (e.g.under Willy's nose, his ears) and lift up the wand to release the filings. You can even then place the wand underneath the card to make the metal filings dance around a bit and make Willy's mustache twitch. Just tip the board to start all over again. Examples are presented on the back that one can experiment with...you can bring "Harry the Hermit", "Dick the Dude", and "Pete the Pirate" to life; this is exciting for people who have not had the pleasure of meeting these types in public. Hey, get crazy and recreate your loved ones as cave people and then go into frenzies of laughter. The back of the card has a small slot to contain the wand. Not a knock off, and virtually the same as it was thirty-four years ago (in my case; please do not swoon). Made in the USA. For ages five and up. Willy is on the Toy Industry Association's "Century of Toys" list, and I know why! Come on, join the fun and rejoice in the existence of facial hair!

This product is just like I remember but has one flaw: the magnetic material inside the plastic is very coarse grained and doesn't work as well as it should. The one that I had when I was a kid had material that was finely ground and easier to pull around. This one has some sand-sized particles in it that are really too big for the intended purpose. But it only costs a few bucks and the kids still like it. I was just disappointed with the quality.

I wanted this to be a car activity for my five year old, and he really likes it, but it's really just plastic coated cardstock. This is not made to last more than a few uses, much less a kid playing with it. It would be nice if the area where you maneuver the metal shards had some sort of texture to keep the shards from moving so easily. If you tip the board at ALL, they slide around. It's fun, but I'd pass on it knowing how cheaply it is made.

I couldn't believe when I found one of these in the store! I have such great memories of playing with wooly willy (didn't sound as dirty when I was a kid) during the summer (did they not sell them during the winter? I don't know - but I only got them during the summer.). Wooly willy (oh boy, the name doesn't sound any less inappropriate with use) was a source of near-endless fun, using the magnet pen to move the black until the black magnetic dust started sticking to the plastic and Wooly willy was permanently wooly.

Wooly willy kept us quiet during long car rides, before the days of iPads, iPods, car-dvd players and Sirius XM. Wooly willy kept us entertained before ebooks, nooks and kindles, before DS's and PSP's and even (gasp!) gameboys. Wooly willy helped us to play by ourselves without being bored.

I want my kids to play with Wooly Willy but I fear that Wooly Willy woudn't wow as it once wowed us (try saying that ten times fast).

Gotten as a gift for a nephew. Remember playing with it as a kid myself. He seems to enjoy it as well.

Exactly the dame as I remember it back in the 70's. I had one of these as a kid and made sure to bring it along whenever we were going to be in the car for a couple hours or more. My four and a half year old loves it, as she is fascinated by magnets anyway right now. The product is probably a little overpriced, but what isn't these days. It has held up well so far since having received it for Christmas. Magnet is just strong enough and no filings have leaked out so far. Thanks for reading.

Rated by Disatified -- Outch! -- This item is quite smaller than I thought, the tiny inside magnets or shell I say the magnetic pencil, do not cooperate with each other very well, you have to go into warp drive in order to get the magnets to move with the magnetic pencil, even though Wooly Willy is lying flat on a flat surface, which means, there is something truly wrong with these dead magnetics, which appears to not want to move or follow the pencil command (smile).
