    Very small pieces. Wish they were a bit larger.

    good idea
    Posted 11/14/2012 by mom

    I like the idea of magnetic words and encouraging language arts development. Personally I think the Story Maker title is misleading as there is not enough variety of words to create good stories, it works ok for making detached sentences. Also none of the words begin with capital letters so you're forced to omit punctuation which I do not think is a good habit when making stories with written language. Good idea, my 3-year old was amused by some of the combinations he could come up with, but would not recommend it for older children who are more advanced.

    Kids story maker
    Posted 7/1/2011

    The concept is very good. The main problem is that the words/lettering/phrases are too small. I expected a larger format with bigger words.... to hold the childis attention. The pieces were observed to be difficult to sort and pick up being so small. Otherwise a good tool and If an adult works with the child it seems to hold the child's attention better. Also i was disappointed that all the products(3) were made in China. I wish Fat Brain Toys had come out in their description of the toys and stated the toys were made in China. especially as these toys are for Childredn and you want them to be safe......the headlins for China product safety are terrible.

    Big Smiles from a Budding Poet!
    Posted 11/22/2010 by Pamela Denyes

    Our 8-year-old grandson was totally delighted to see his birthday gift. Because he has always loved poetry and books in general, we wanted to put the power in his hands to create some fun with words. We also purchased an inexpensive magnetic write-on board and he and his siblings immediately put every phrase on the board, segregated by color. Their home-schooling mother will use it for assignments, no doubt!
