Hands-on Magnetic Fun
Everyone is 'attracted' to these beautifully designed wooden animal magnets! Twenty favorite wild and domesticated animals are rendered in vibrant color on solid wooden shapes. The magnets range in size from about two inches to three inches high (5.08cm to 7.62cm), making them easy for small hands to position and reposition. All store neatly in a solid wood case with a see-through top that snaps into place, so they are perfect for both home and travel. From a lion, giraffe, and elephant, to a sheep, pig, and dog, these fun and adorable magnets are a favorite with kids learning about the animal world! The wide variety of realistically drawn creatures is great for developing sorting, grouping, and storytelling skills. Kids develop their fine motor skills as they stick the magnets to a metal surface such as the refrigerator, or play with them on a table or the floor for hours of creative playtime. Arrange and re-arrange the colorful magnets to make scenes, play games, and tell stories.

"Tested to be safe and durable" … Horse puckey!
Another reviewer (who convinced me) wrote: "They are made of durable wood...just in case you have a nibbler. Hope this helps :) "
Don't believe the dead colon eyes or the manipulative, wide smile of the parenthese-mouth emoticon. LIES! ALL LIES! Behold; the truth:
As reported in other reviews, the images are printed laminate adhered to a wooden base w/ magnetic coating on the back - they have a nice, chunky thickness perfect for fine motor manipulation, and the illustrations are fairly life-like, which my son prefers. While the magnets are not strong enough to stick to each other, they adhere well to the magnetic surfaces in our home (the fridge, front, and closet doors) and have yet to fall off when said doors are slammed shut.
The two nit-picky complaints I have are that the storage box doesn't have a permanent lid, and the image surface is easily dented (imprinted?) by fingernails or when banged against another hard surface. Neither impacts my rating b/c I feel the set is an absolute steal at $10 (however, if it cost more, I definitely would have deducted a star.)
Other users have given these magnets bad reviews, stating that they fell apart when mouthed by their children, most of whom are reported as being MUCH younger than the recommended 3+ age group. Based on the construction I detailed above, I have NO doubt that such reports are accurate, so PLEASE - don't give these magnets to an infant or toddler who still mouths objects without maintaining close adult supervision.
One last note: I saw a similar M&D magnet set sold in Target over the weekend. The Target set had 30 pieces (this set is 20,) more sea animals (this one only includes a goldfish,) had more-cartoonish looking illustrations, and seemed to be of similar construction but poorer quality (at least two magnets in each of the boxes I saw were torn or scratched.)
