Rated 4 out of 5Â by Thankateacher Great Idea
I have been very pleased with the line of Melissa & Doug products at Kohls. I was a little disappointed with the size of the pattern blocks- too small for young hands. I have been a elementary teacher for years, and use pattern blocks regularly in my classroom. The ones offered in this set are much smaller than the ones that are used in schools, and young children would have a difficult time manipulating them. I love the idea of the set being magnetic!

I bought this for my grandaughter. The quality is excellent. It comes with patterns/pictures that fit inside the frame of the magnetic board so you can place the pieces on top of to trace the pattern (which is great for a four year old). You can also make your own patterns/pictures (which is great for an older child). There are small pieces so follow the age recommendations. I would definitely recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Deals714 Great creative toy
I was looking to buy a similar M&D product where the shape pieces were not magnetic. I read reviews complaining that the pieces slide around too much while trying to create the picture causing frustration. The magnetic pieces in this kit fixes that problem. This is a great, versatile product in building creativity. You can create pictures from the stencils provided or create your own.

I bought this for my 2 year old daughter to use as a mom-daughter activity. We did the pictures together and then i put it away so she wouldn't lose the pieces. Sometime between the age of 2 and 4 she started playing with it by herself. Even as an adult i enjoyed playing with it, so it was a fun together activity. Great for demonstrating patterning, shapes, art designs.
