Be forewarned that while this is a toy that will probably intrigue your young child, it's one that benefits from the involvement of an adult--especially one who nonverbally explores what the blocks can do. They're pretty versatile. Click, clack. They can come together--but they can also, depending on the orientation of the embedded magnets, 'ignore' or even repel one another. Do 'magic' by making a block move without touching it. Put one on the tray table of an airplane and move it by holding another block beneath. Make four triangles into a square. Build a house. Etc. They are a great fiddle toy, even for adults.
So, they're a handy take along. Most children will allow themselves to be distracted with these during a period of enforced waiting in a confined space. A real plus is that the sturdy pouch makes it easy to ensure that all the (expensive) pieces come home.
These are priced high so as to allow support of educational programs in Honduras, where they are manufactured. Also, Tegu requires resellers to adhere to a pricing agreement, but there are price reductions periodically, both on Amazon and on the Tegu site. Go there to sign up for their occasional emails, which include special offers--sometimes as much as 35 to 40% off--and the introduction of new products not available elsewhere.
One thing to note that I didn't even consider - these are polarized, obviously, so not every piece fits every piece in every way. That's very frustrating for my daughter, when she tries to fit a piece to another piece and instead of "sticking" it pushes it away.
The quality is high. This is definitely something that could sit on the desk of a professional that likes gadgets and doodads.
Rating would be a five if the magnets were aligned such that block edges would meet up in all configurations. Often, when you match two blocks with similar edge lengths, the magnets pull together in a way that the edges are misaligned by a 1/4 inch.
