Check out this featured review of the Excellerations® Building Brilliance® Magnetic Shapes - 100 Pieces from a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer in Rhode Island.
Fantastic hours of fun!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Review: "I bought these for my 4 year old son, he has some similar to these at daycare, and all the children jockey to play with them, including the school aged boys. My ten year old and my four year old love them,and it is a consistent preferred choice when they play in their room. The blocks can make houses, towers, "garages" for their matchbox cars, or simply sorted and stacked by their color, size, shape, etc. I'm very happy with these magnetic shapes.."
