5.0 out of 5 stars Great toy, Artifically inflated pricing, December 2, 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Magna-Tiles® Clear Colors 32 Piece Set (Toy)
This is a wonderful toy. In late 2011, the big problem is that the company manufacturers in Thailand. Due to the recent flooding in Thailand, the company, Valtech, is entirely sold-out. Toy companies are completely taking advantage of virtually zero-supply and strong product demand to really mark-up the price. The company's own website lists the 32-piece clear set at $51.50, which is only 3 dollars more than the 32-piece non-clear set. the 100-piece clear set is listed on the company web site at $120 and the 100-piece non-clear set is listed at $110. By contrast, in December 2011, online toystores are selling the 100-pieces sets at up to $299 and the 32-piece sets at $100 or more. When you read comments on the toy being "over-priced," check the date of the review and consider what price the customer paid. The power of supply-and-demand.
