Monster Magnet Craft Kit
My Favorite Oriental Trading Purchase Ever!!
I purchased these for my Cub Scout Den Activity for October. They are 6 years old and had no trouble at all. Glue dots would have been neater, but Elmers Glue worked just fine.
The kids loved them and they are quite adorable. The magnets were included in mine. The cost was amazingly inexpensive as are most OT items.

Great Creative Project
I bought this kit, thinking I would tuck it away until October for Halloween. However, a few days after it arrived, my son announced that he wanted to design a monster-making machine. This fit the bill perfectly. I brought out several kits, dumped them on paper plates, and he went to town designing monster after monster. There is enough variation in pieces among the three designs to allow for a decent amount of creativity. We used mini-glue dots for mess-free fun, and he had no trouble with the small pieces (he is in K). We've had several monster-making sessions (I only have 2 left), and I've actually bought another set. The only thing that stymies me is why OT calls it a magnet craft kit when no magnets are actually included. Still, this last is not enough for me to downgrade my rating for a craft that has proved very popular in our household.

Middle School Students had a ball
Used these before school in the library for an activity and the students really enjoyed them. I enjoyed the price. It was interesting how many boys participated! They are begging for more activities such as these.

Good purchase for price
The only down side is the size. Some of the items were too small to glue and kids were having a difficult time placing these where they belonged.

Pretty cute project!
I ordered this project for my daughter's 1st graders to make for Halloween. I took one and put it togethter to make sure it wasn't too hard for them. It was very cute. I went to Joann's and get a heavy duty magnet since I failed to order some for the monsters. Overall it was really cute.
