Magformers 48-pc. Magnetic Building Set w/ Rechargeable LED Light
Great gift for 9 year olds
I purchased this item in the summer of 2013 as a Christmas gift for my 9 year old nephew. I worried myself sick over the next six months that these were too "young" for him. Boy was I wrong! He loved them!! We all loved them, as many of the adults ended up playing with them when he opened them.
He has called me several times to share his latest creation!
Bought for my 4 yr. old Grandson, and he loves them. Especially being able to add the led light to his builds. I like playing w them too! You cant go wrong with these for kids.
Kind of a dud
When I bought these, the pictures had the brightly colored lit up pictures. I thought that once they were plugged in the blocks would illuminate with different colors. When I got them and the boys starting building stuff, they put the little red block on and all it did was make them glow a bit. The blocks themselves did nothing. The little red block is just a little lightbulb that makes whatever they created glow from the bottom a bit. The kids like them alright but I thought the light up kind were were a major dud. I'd get the ones that are colored without the light up feature maybe but never these again. I wish I could add a picture to show how lame these things are.
SAW THEM AT METROPOLITAN SCIENCE CENTER!!
Nephew went CRAZY excited when he opened these.
He played with them at the local metropolitan Science Center for hours and was THRILLED to get his own set.
His mother sent me a picture the day after . . . . a pile of cars, swords, star wars toys were set aside and this 5 year old spent 45 minutes playing with his Magformers!
His mom thanked me later for buying gifts that keep her kids entertained!
Do not hesitate . . . I regret not getting dbl sets to gift to each child
Excellent choice for Christmas gift for 7 yr old.
Everyone in the family likes these. I had given him a set last year that he still plays with. This set added lights and another shape. Perfect gift.
I ordered a set of these for my grandkids to play with when they first came out a couple years ago and have ordered more of the little sets since then. They entertain all my grandkids from ages two to teenagers for hours at a time. I have one request, please bring back the bigger size sets, I can only find the little size sets and I am needing some more of the bigger size sets from when I first purchased them. Thanks QVC for a wonderful product that encourages my youngsters to use their creativity.
Not in Color!
I wish I had saw the review by Not as Shown before buying these. These are clear magformers and if you use the light that comes with it, only the bottom 4 attached will show some color. This was my first set and I scoured the internet to find a good price and decided on these. Had I known, I would have spent $10 more to get colored ones. My kids and I had fun playing with them for a little bit so far but the magnets don't hold together around the led light that well. Other than they they look like a nice toy. I just wish they weren't clear.
My grandsons love these
I bought two sets of these. My grandson played with these all afternoon on Christmas. The light really makes these look pretty. So happy with them.
My 5 year old great-niece's favorite present!
I bought them as an afterthought for her and they turned out to be her favorite present. She played with them the entire 2 hours I was there, and was told that it was the only thing she played with all the way until bedtime, and she insisted on taking them along on the family trip to WV. I'm not a mom, so I don't have any "parental insight" to add to the discussion, I just know how much my girl loves them, and I will definitely buy her more!
Kid can't put it down
I purchased this as a gift for a 4 years old kid. He cannot put it down. He loves to build and to change the colours of the LED lamp.
Grandkids love it
Got to order more.....they range in age 4,6,8,11,13 and can't keep them from fighting over who builds first. I put off buying till I was able to do easy pay. Thank you for easy pay.
Not as shown
I believe this product is worth about one fourth of what I paid. The pictures are of a different product. There is a color changing light, but there are never different colored block as shown in the pictures.
