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.

Color: Pirate Verified Purchase
There are what I think are some great pirate words and enough small words to combine them. It was also nice to see "arrr" and not "arrrgh" for pirate speak. This kit also will go great with other kits. It's fun to mix this with Shakespeare, for example.

Color: Geek
I bought the magnetic geek poetry kit and I have to tell you, I'm very disappointed. It is lousy.

First, it's not very geeky. At all. It has NO OS related terms (unix, linux etc) and only one programming related term (perl) but that's it. Oh wait, we have "bridge". Wowee!

Second, it doesn't integrate with my existing (original) magnetic poetry kit because the words are large, much larger than the originals and because it has so few words (not a good value, see #3), there's not much to be done with it. Iow, don't do like I did and have the expectation that you can beef up your existing kit by throwing in some geekness. It ain't happening. I'd gauge the font size to be about 12. The original is maybe 6 pt. font so it doesn't blend, kwim?

Third, it's not a good value. Hardly any words as compared to the original magnetic poetry kit. Maybe one third as many. Seriously.

I'm not a complainer but I'm very disappointed with this purchase. It's what you'd expect someone like Scott Adams to do [juxtaposition of geek cartoonist but zero actual web culture knowledge, his site is painful; he calls each blog entry "a blog".] It's enough to make any sane person shiver all over.

I'm left with the impression that this kit was just phoned in, no thought put in to it at all. My mom who is 80 and had never sent an email in her life could have done a better job.

Color: Zombie Verified Purchase
You get a good enough idea of the words included by looking at the box, and the main factor that will limit your enjoyment is your own creativity (or lack thereof).

The one thing I did want to mention is that the pieces do not tear cleanly. If you've never opened a new box of magnetic poetry, most of the words are come in "chunks" of multiple words on a magnetic sheet which has been scored and which you need to tear apart before use. Usually, they're scored deeply enough that this is an easy process that leaves no trace. In my set (YMMV) they tore rather messily and left jagged edges around most of the words. It's certainly no dealbreaker and you might even say it lends a certain appropriate character to the zombie-themed words.

Note: Combine this set with Magnetic Poetry Erotic X Kit. 3182 for especially hilarious results!

Color: D-Bag Verified Purchase
It would be nice if these products were individually marketed so that shoppers could read reviews based on their poetry sets of interest. i bought the d-bag set as a gift for my husband. He's not a d-bag, but he has it's moments. This probably wouldn't be as amusing to someone who really was a jerk. Overall, they're pretty good quality. Black words on a thin magnetic background. They text is fairly small, like 14 point Times New Roman. That makes them fairly discreet, unless someone actually wants to read them.

The words are sufficiently offensive to warrant the d-bag title and to hide them from my mother in law. Some gems include "homie," "hottie" and "wingman" They are not entirely conducive to making poems though. There are not very many verbs, although its verbification is a very d-bagish thing to do. You can definatly make some pretty obnoxious phrases and sentences.

It's cute though. I like it. It's kind of like Cards Against Humanity for the refrigerator. I may try some of the additional sets to mix things up a bit.

Color: Genius Verified Purchase
I really like playing with this set. It has lots of big words--some familiar, some not. My only complaint is that I need more little connecting words: prepositions, articles, etc. We run out of those first and have to steal them from existing masterpieces.
