Today, Thomas and Tina are building masterpieces with Magna-Tiles. Thomas, age 8, is building an outer space castle for his action figures to fight in and around; it has craggy cliffs and an awesome see-through tower, and if you give him enough time, string, and paperclips, he may figure out how to build a drawbridge. Tina, age 3, is making… a big old pile of Magna-Tiles. And it’s all just beautiful.
The Magna-Tiles Clear 100-Piece Set is the ultimate magnetic building set for creative kids, with loads of pretty transparent geometric shapes to choose from. Magna-Tiles stick together at all corners and on all faces, with no repelling, so the building possibilities are virtually unlimited, whether your child’s creations are flat or 3D, abstract or detailed. For even more visual impact, add a light table!
And of course, playing with Magna-Tiles helps small kids learn colors, shapes, and fine motor skills, while older kids learn basic math concepts and problem-solving skills. And because of the countless ways to play, kids never get tired of them – reviewers tell us that their kids use their Magna-Tiles for years and years, and that siblings of different ages happily share them. (A set of 100 pieces, of course, facilitates sharing.)
The Magna-Tiles Clear 100-Piece Set includes 50 small squares, 4 large squares, 15 isoceles triangles, 11 right triangles, and 20 equilateral triangles. Add more Magna-Tiles sets for even more fun! For ages 3 and up.

durable, no small parts, aesthetically pleasing, endless possibilities
expensive but for good reason
These Magna Tiles are wonderful. So glad we splurged for the 100-piece set, because you can build an endless variety of structures and quite large ones, too. Kids (3 and 5) are both deeply engaged by these and play for very long periods of time. And so am I. Even the 3-year-old has no trouble putting 3-dimensional patterns and structures together and is figuring out where the different triangle shapes fit or not, and how to make structures that are stable. The tiles quickly inspired creative play; for example, the kids have made elaborate houses for toy animals, ships, and pretend musical instruments. The tiles are pricey for a reason: the magnets have to be strong magnets because they are encased in plastic. My spouse estimated that if you bought just the magnets in small quantity, each tile would cost around $4.
versatile, engaging, addictive
I have three sons and we have 248 Magna-Tiles - 2 100 piece sets and 1 48 pc DX. We got the first set over five years ago and if i had a dollar for each time they were used, I would be well into the 1000s. These toys are perfect for parents who want their kids to be creative and avoid the typical 'plastic' stuff. You can build almost anything you want and they are SO easy to fit together in different configurations. They are absolutely worth every penny! Do not hesitate, just buy them!
These tiles are well worth the price. We gave them to three young boys who prefer them to all other Christmas gifts they received. We ordered them because they are the #1 favorite toy at the preschool. Plus, Magic Beans saved the day by sending them quickly and communicating well about the shipping process after another supplier, Kaplan, completely let me down. Kaplan didn't bother to tell me for a couple weeks that my order was back-ordered until after Christmas.
Durable, Worth investment, Imaginative, Creative, High quality, Fun to Assemble
Durable inventive building set for all ages. Wide variety of structures can be created. Nice colors. Grandaughter (age 4) makes houses for dolls and animals. Easy to store. Attractive and simple. Expensive but worth the investment.
Creative, Easy To Assemble, Sturdy, Fun
Entertaining for everyone, my 3 year old, 1.5 year old and even my husband! Worth the money!
Easy To Assemble, Colorful, Durable, Sturdy, Fun
We got our first box of these when our son was 2. The easy assembly allowed him to build and play on his own. As he got bigger, we had to buy another box since he wanted to build larger structures. He would play quietly in his room building farm structures for his plastic animals to live in, or castles for his pirates. A definite must have. I suggest going with the 100 piece set as you will need it. He is now 6 and still plays with these.
Fun, Sturdy, Easy To Assemble, Durable, Colorful
Magna-Tiles are an absolutely fabulous toy. Fun, colorful and very durable. They are the kind of toy that you buy for your kids, but the adults find themselves wanting to play too! We started out with a small "starter set" but quickly found that our kids wanted more tiles to make bigger and better structures. Then, the grandparents got them the 100 pc. set as a gift... My kids were ages 4 and 7 when we first started playing with Magna-Tiles. Now they are 6 and 9...and they still enjoy building with them. The only negative, if there is one, is that Magna-Tiles are a bit pricey. Nevertheless, I would recommend them highly to my friends.
