The bricks are excellent quality, but only very few. The magnets are good but perhaps a little tricky for younger ones to work out but it does all help with learning.
You need to buy two sets to make them worth playing with or else there just isnt enough to do anything with.
My two have never really played with them much, they prefer the normal blocks we have as there are more of them and they work regardless of which way you stack them - no magnetic field forcing the blocks apart!

They are shiny and made of lovely wood however this is all i can say good about them. And what kid appreciates wood quality?? The magnetic bits are only on a few bricks and on one side so it doesnt keep the little ones attention. There aren't enough of them to make anything out of them. Over prices rubbish!

Like someone else said, these blocks are barely magnetic. If I connect two cubes and lift the top cube, it does stay together, but only if I lift very carefully. It's very easy to accidentally knock them apart.

What's worse, the cubes are exactly symmetric and there is nothing showing on which side the magnet is. If you want to connect two cubes together, you have 1 chance in 18 of connecting the sides that (a) actually contain magnets and (2) have magnets of opposite polarity so they don't just push each others apart. With a toy intended for children I'd expect it to be far easier to find a way of actually "snapping" the blocks together.

It's an OK toy but not enough blocks for the price. The magnets don't work properly, sometimes it feels like there's none

I thought these would be more fun to play with
My little one finds it difficult to use the magnets in the bricks as there are no markings on the bricks to tell you which side "stick" with which
He enjoyes bashing them together but that's about it

I expected this to be a good quality toy since it is made by Brio but I have been very disappointed. The magnets are very weak so there is no 'snap' together of the blocks and it is not clear which orientation the blocks need to be in to attract to each other. As a result, you have to use trial and error to get the blocks to click together, not much use for a toddler toy. I think I will need to mark the blocks in some way. There are only 8 in the box which makes it a small set: that wouldn't have been a problem if they did something more exciting than just build like a simple set of bricks. I thought the magnet element would have meant added play value but sadly not. I doubt these will get played with once the Christmas toys are put away.

These aren't cheap blocks... I bought them because I thought they might be fun for my 1 yr old to play with and would hold together quite well as she learns to build with her blocks. But the magnetic force is minimal. They cling only weakly together and may as well not be magnetic at all.

Just wanted to warn others.
