The Magnetic Poetry Story
Dave Kapell, founder of Magnetic Poetry, was suffering from writer's block while trying to compose song lyrics. To overcome this problem, he wrote down interesting words on pieces of paper and rearranged them, looking for inspiration. What he hadn't figured into this experiment was his allergies. One good sneeze and any progress was sent flying across the room. Dave decided to glue the words to pieces of magnets and stick them to a pizza tin. Then he got hungry and the now magnetized words made their way to the refrigerator door. Before too long, Dave wasn't the only one rearranging his would-be song lyrics. When friends came over, Dave noticed they started to move the magnets around, amusing themselves by writing the first magnetic poems.
After seeing his friends having fun, Dave thought he might be able to sell his word kits at a local craft fair. He made up 100 kits and set up shop at Calhoun Square, a mall in the Uptown area of Minneapolis. All 100 kits were gone after 3 hours. That night, he recruited as many friends as pizza and beer could draw and made up more kits--all of which sold as rapidly the next day.
From these beginnings, Magnetic Poetry¨ has now sold over three million word kits, over one billion word tiles--growing from the Original Kit to a kid's line of kits, to foreign language kits, to Voice/theme kits.
We've yet to meet a child who doesn't love to play with words. Hearing-impaired children do it by signing, and babies repeat noises over and over, delighting in the patterns of sounds. It's a marvel to witness a child start to associate sounds with letters and then words, and great fun to watch him or her throw words together in a heap and see what comes out. The Really Big Words set will provide years of fascinating verbal learning, from the most basic sound-equals-letter level to the more sophisticated process of composing a poem or story. The letters and words (128 in all) are oversize, perfect for preschoolers and kindergartners. The set also comes with blank strips and a pencil and stencil set for the inspired to create new words of their own. --Sandy HirschSee all Product description

Pieces are still small, but i'd say about twice the size of the normal magnetic poetry.
