Play is often the primary mode of learning for children. For young minds, taking flat pieces and constructing 3-D objects with them is a new and exciting discovery. Magna-Tiles attract on all sides, even when flipped around. Children explore geometric shapes, symmetry, and other basic math concepts with these colorful pieces.

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 son is a HUGE fan of the translucent MagnaTiles. Over the years, we have continued to add to his collection, and he still asked for more for his recent 9th birthday. So, with the 100 piece translucent set assigned to another family member, I decided to try these for him. When he saw this set, he said, "These are the wrong ones." I tried to sell him on the versatility of this set - there are shapes that the clear set doesn't have, and these work with the other set, but he didn't like them. The magnet strength seems weaker on these, too, which my son also didn't like. So, my advice would be to go for the translucent set; really, for the last six years, my son has played with this toy. When other kids come over, everyone loves them. This is by far the best toy I have ever had for either of my children. They are expensive, but when I think of the toys that cost less, I can't seem to find them around the house anymore.

My daughter has these at preschool and all ages fight over who can use theses. I will give her this set for Christmas but know that it will be the only thing she will play non-stop. Great for all ages. The creativity with the 3d effect is great. I will be buying more sets in other colors once they are available again. Definitely worth the price!
