Too many pieces & nothing to put them in
from Renton, WA
About Me Parent
Comments about Educational Insights Magnetic Art:
Purchased at Christmas time for our 3 year old. I did know at the time of purchase that it didn't come with a carry case for all the little magnets but man after purchasing there are way too many magnets and some are pretty small. I certainly wouldn't want this toy in my car...my kids would be throwing the pieces at me and I would never find them all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Needs a case
from Philadelphia, PA
Got this toy for Christmas for my son. I was disappointed in the quality (for the price), it's all plastic and there is not even a case to put all the magnets.Wish it were in wood, made like a little briefcase, with wood magnets.Wish the colors were more vibrant too...
from Columbus, OH
This is a terrific travel companion for our son! We store it in an old laptop bag with shoulder strap, and it stays in the car until we need it. The shapes keep him occupied for a long time, and is a great distraction while waiting for food to arrive at a restaurant. Highly recommended!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too many little pieces and no storage for them at all. I purchased this for a trip and it was a nightmare trying to manage. The pieces are also too small.
Brings out their creative side
By Mommy to two
I bought this for an eight hour car drive to Minnesota and it kept my three year old entertained for severalhours. Besides our DVD player, this will definetly be another must on my list to pack.
Great activity for car

About Me First Time Parent
This is a great activity toy for the car. As other reviews have said, it does need some type of storage either attached or separate. Knowing this prior to purchasing, I found a zippered clear tote lying around the house. It was perfect for it.Other than that, it really keeps my 4 year old son busy while in the car.There are son many designs he comes up with. Great product!!

About Me Education Oriented, First Time Parent
My 2.5-yr-old doesn't seem too entrigued by this toy, but I still think it's great! It's of pretty good quality, and it comes with LOTS of pieces. I just wish there was a bag/container for all the little magnetic pieces that attaches to the board. (I use a ziploc bag.)
Great for independent fun

This is great for home or travel. No limit to creativity. But we had to make our own bag to store the pieces.

Great toy, needs storage bag
from Oak Park, IL
I bought this for my 4 year old daughter before a trip. She loves playing with it, but there is no storage container. It is listed as a travel toy, but it is not travel friendly.
I appreciate it
By Traveling family

About Me Educator, Parent
I really appreciate the creativity that this product has to offer. My three year old daughter enjoys playing with all the shapes and making pictures. I bought this because of all the traveling we are going to do. The only draw back is that there is no carrying case which makes it difficult for her to play with in the car. I enjoy the magnets but it will stay at home

Not only for the car
We bought this for our three year old for a 8 hour trip. She found it so much fun that even during our short weekly trips to grandma's it is in constant use. She loves the shapes and the colors and is always using it to review her knowledge of both. We have even found that it works well in restaurants. We bring the tray and the a few peices magnatized to the tray and it keeps her quite busy.The only con is the lack of a storage compartment for pieces when she wants to clear the tray for use.
