Pattern Blocks - Magnetic Foam 200-Piece Bucket
Category Description for Pattern Block Foam Magnets & Board
When you use magnetic pattern blocks, you dont have to worry with sliding, shifting pieces! This set of 200 magnetic foam pattern blocks are 1/4 thick and can be used on the fridge or on other magnetic-receptive surfaces. A corresponding 9 x 12 magnet board is also available. It has a plain white side and a triangle-patterned side. elise

We bought these for our 4 year old... He loves them. He plays with them on the cookie sheets. They have lots of geometric shapes, and he is learning all these shapes and how they fit together. My older girls love them too, they are 12 and 9. Everyone plays with them, even my husband and me. There are enough different shapes that we can make pictures and things instead of just arbitrary shapes. I like the foam feel, and they are nice and thick and fairly sturdy. Haven't come apart yet and we are going on a year!
My children ages 2, 6 and 9 love this set of pattern blocks. We already had a wood set of pattern blocks and wanted to get this set for my littles to play with but this set is all they play with. They can use a cookie sheet, the refrigerator, dry erase board or our metal school cabinet. They both love to play with them and now tell me this set isn't enough and that they need another set. Which doesn't surprise me with the complicated geometric designs that they create. We love them and use them weekly. They are useful for grades K-6th and we use the Patternables book along with our pattern blocks. I also plan to buy the Advanced Pattern Block book for my older child to continue to challenge her with her beloved toy. It is an excellent value and very durable. We will most definitely be buying another set (possibly for Christmas).
