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.
The Magnetic Poetry Essentials - Everything You Need to Be Your Kitchen's Finest Scribe
Our Original and Poet kits are our flagship products, the ones that started it all back in 1993. They contain everything you need to almost effortlessly come up with astonishing “poetry,” even if you’ve never written an original verse in your life! The Original was on Seinfeld’s fridge, and Madonna used The Poet to compose her song “Candy Perfume Girl.” These ones do it all, and are perfect for those new to the world of fridge poetry. Use them to compose ever-evolving love poems, surreal insults, bizarre insights, naughty reposts, and all manner of random and hilarious messages to all that visit… and add their own changes to your works-in-progress!
Other fun uses for Magnetic Poetry Include:
- Passing along quirky love notes, or even weirder insults, and having ongoing conversations on the fridge. The conversation never ends!
- Inventing new slang.
- Entertaining your friends while you mix drinks, or keeping that one friend who gets knocked out of poker early busy.
- Allowing guests to leave personalized messages for you (whether it's in the vein of "thanks!" or "sorry about the couch."
- Keeping a running diary near the fridge of poems and musings created. It's fun to go back and revisit the creative things that you and your family or friends have come up with.
Magnetic Poetry Themed Kits - The Bard, Beards, Squirrels, Movies, and More!
We make over 100 different themed kits based on everything from famous authors, to favorite hobbies, to the latest, strangest internet memes. All work great on their own, but really shine as supplements to The Original and The Poet kits, or when combined with each other (for instance, give your intellectual, fuzzy-lipped friend our Mustache Poet and the Shakespeare Kit, and enjoy the hilarious Elizabethan jabs at his ‘stache that emerge)!
All of our sets are made right here in the USA, and our entire line (including our comprehensive, teacher-approved Children’s line) is available on Amazon. We even make a line of desktop metal easel boards for stainless steel fridge owners (magnets, sadly, don’t stick to most stainless), teachers, or for those just wanting to play away from the fridge. Magnetic poets have also been known to install their work on cookie sheets, file cabinets, locker doors, and all other manner of other flat steel surfaces. Magnetic Poetry also works well with magnetic paint… create a poetry wall in your kids' room (or your own).
We hope you enjoy Magnetic Poetry as much as we do! Please check out everything we have to offer, and may the muse of the magnets be with you!

Top international reviews
In this version of the Magnetic poetry kit there are roughly 200 words (which seems to be the standard number in this line), but with the suffixes and prefixes and some imagination you can probably make a lot more. A random sampling of the words that are included: about, alive, always, bluebird, blue sky, bloom, essential, enjoy, ecstatic, happen, happiness, happy, jump, kiss, know, make, martini, moment, more, share, shine, simple, surprise, taste, trust, true, use, warm, when, which, whisper, wish woman, wonder, etc. (as an FYI, the word ‘sex’ is not in this set) and all of the usual pronouns are included in the kit as well.
With just what you get in this kit there are certainly a lot of phrases that you can make, yet the kits made by Magnetic Poetry are easily combined and the opportunities to create your magnetic prose increase significantly if you mix a few together. Each set has some unique and useful words that will come in handy to create some magnetic masterpieces on the fridge, your work station or even the coffee maker. Also, you will notice that using these magnetic words is a lot less messy than crayons and way easier to clean!
