1.0 out of 5 stars Magnetic fall apart, January 17, 2013

This review is from: Melissa & Doug Magnetic Hide and Seek Board (Toy)
First off let me say that I love Melissa and Doug products I have several of them and my boys love them as much as I do. So when I bought this item I had nothing but the highest hopes of it being a wonderful adition to our toys but sadly it wasnt. The board itself is well built and sturdy had no problem with it, same with the doors that open up. I can tell that it was made to last. The problem I have is with the magnetic . My three year old was playing with this, while drinking a glass of water. I thought nothing of it until he spilled what would amount to 1/4 of a cup of water on the table and before I could wipe it up drop one of the magnetic on it. I picked it up with in seconds to wipe it off and was shocked to see that the paper on top of hte magnetic had detacted and was starting to melt. I was so upset that it took a small amount of water to destroy this one magnetic . I know that these things are not ment for water so I just decided that it was my fault and would have to deal with it. So then I banned water while playing with it thinking it would solve the problem. It did not. Over the course of a month the rest of the paper on the remaining magnetics fell off. I would not say my son plays hard with his toys so I can only conclude that these magnetic are made poorly and I don't recommend this for toddlers at all. No matter what I did these thigns fell off. It is sad but this poor design in the magnetics have ruined the great design in the base and doors. Since I cant recommend this for the age they have listed I have to give a 1 star but if they fixed the magnetic problem then I would deff give this a 5 as everything else is study.
