Worth every penny!
We purchased our first set of Magna-tiles over 7 years ago and have replaced pieces every couple years. The children toddler age through school age love building and playing with the magna tiles. They are creative and will spend as much time as allowed with the magna tiles. The magnets are strong enough to hold the structures but not too strong so it's safe not to pinch little fingers. Even the adults have fun building and holding conversations with the children as they build together. The translucent are also nice to use near the windows, light table, or allow the sun to shine through and use for science content. After much use, the corners show wear but I have never had one break and as a Center Director, they are getting dropped and stepped on regularly. This is one item that is not only used in several content areas, but also will always be available for the children after seeing the exploration and social skills used with the magna tiles.
Price per hour of play is pennies - ages 1 through 12 discovered using a metal tv tray to build top, bottom, and sides for many creative stuctures.
