Winter Magnetic Manipulatives
Good for the price
These manipulatives were an interesting addition to our "winter" theme in my preschool classroom. I didn't use all 44 pieces at once.

Good purchase on sale
These are cute magnets, but as mentioned by another reviewer, most of them are just whole magnets; there are only a few that are "puzzles." I do like the thick foam and bright colors though.

I found these on sale for a great price, and they had good reviews, so I took a chance -- and I'm so glad. It was hard for me to tell from the pictures, but these are thick, chunky foam pieces with magnetic backs. They're easy for little hands to grab and hold, and they are adorable. My 8 year old and 3 year old both love them. We have them on the fridge, but they would also work well on a cookie sheet for travel. I'm not sure I'd pay the full price for them, but for the price I paid, they were an excellent value.

Great idea, not so well executed.
Most of these toys do not separate into smaller pieces. What you see in the photo is exactly what you get. I was hoping for more puzzle pieces for my toddler to learn to put them together...not so much a bunch of whole pieces. Quality is fine.

Great teaching tool!
I bought this for my two daughters (4 years and 22 months). They both love this product! Not only can they just simply have fun playing with it but I can also use it as an educational opportunity for my oldest (without her knowing it). The snowflakes puzzles can be used to teach fractions (since they are cut in half, thirds and sixths). We use the different colored penguins for patterning. The pieces are chunky enough for my youngest to grasp and move around.
