The intellectual wonder of, "Why do they do that?" The value of simple play. These colorful best sellers attract attention.
String them together or create a 3-dimensional structure--Magnet Marbles merge fascination with polarity, the mystery of magnetic fields, and the fun of 3-D interaction. Endless hours of extended learning and play.
A great addition to a child's collection of amusements.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 4 years of age.
"My grandson has Mitochondrial disease. At four years old he is unable to walk without assistance and he does not talk. He is very vocal but just makes sounds. He understands everything and interacts with his environment. I bought him the plasma car and he loves it. He has a hard time getting on it by himself since he doesn't walk but when he wants to get off he rides it near the floor cushions (bean bag cushions) and rolls off. He's creative when he needs to be. When I bought 2 sets of the magnet marbles, I knew he would enjoy playing with them and he really does. Since he mostly crawls and plays on the floor, these are just one more thing to amuse him. They are colorful and fun to handle. A simple thing for him to play with."
Teach 4 year olds and use these magnet marbles for spare time use. The boys especially like playing games with them. The girls will play with them independently, making designs etc. Either way, even if you don't use them for an actual science lesson, they are great to keep kids occupied.
Colorful fun magnets

Magnets are always fun to play with. In this case they are in the form of colorful round marble-like objects. Roll them towards one another and they either stick or get repelled. They're just one of those fun things to play with. My grandsons both enjoy their own sets and play together with them or separately. I can't seem to quit messing around with them either. I may have to buy them for myself just to keep on the counter and play with them rather than doodle while I'm on the phone. A simple "toy" but one that is quite entertaining.
My rating of 20 Split Colored Magnet Marbles
Posted 12/20/2011 by Joanie Krehbiel
I like them but was hoping they would be stronger magnets and maybe a little larger marble. We had played with a set at a friends house and really loved them, we could make a bracelet with the balls in a loop and more but only about 4 balls will hold together in line before braking.
The Magnet Marbles were a gift for my 6yr old son and 9yr old daughter. Both children love making multi-colored snakes, having races down the side of the fridge, and learning about the different poles of a magnet and how they work. Only two downsides of the product were low magnet strength and when my 6yr old stepped on one on accident, it easily split open.
