Questions & Answers
Melissa and Doug Magnetic Pattern Block Set
Nice, but LOTS of little pieces
Teena from Wheeling, WV– Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
My kids were likely too young for this, as all they wanted to do was scatter the pieces everywhere. I think kids 7-10 would probably enjoy this more.
great learning tool

I use this with my 2 year old. It is a great learning tool. We are able to work on colors, shapes, matching, counting, and more with the pattern blocks. One thing that I don't care for with this product is that the pieces are not all the same size. Some of the 'white' pieces, little diamonds are smaller, bigger or wider than others and don't always fit nicely into the picture spots.
Another great M&D product!
Staci from Nashville, TN– Verified Buyer
We gave this to our daughter (age 3.5) for Christmas! This is something that I actually enjoyed playing with her. She can do her picture magnetically on the board and I work mine on the floor next to her. I love that there is a separate pouch on the back to store the pieces and there are a variety of designs. Eventually, she had fun just fitting pieces together on her own both on the floor and the board!

Made of durable wood and painted in bright colors. The magnetic board and magnets are strong, yet not so strong that my 2 and 4 yr old have trouble pulling the pieces back off again. The pieces stick through the pattern pages which is exactly what I needed for my two youngest children. I have been looking for a pattern block set for some time and am thrilled with the quality of this product in comparison to others on the market. My only complaint is the the plastic carrying case is just big enough to hold the board and pieces. I wish it would have been slightly larger so that my little ones could more easily put it all away with out mom helping to squeeze it into the bag. It is made of a strong plastic that should last.... if we can continue to get the pieces in.
My 3-year old LOVES this!
Mom of TWO from Denver, CO– Verified Buyer
My 3-year old loves this product. You can use the cardboard designs included in the product or you can free form your own pictures with the magnetic shapes provided. You can also use the magnetic board with any magnetic letters you may have to start teaching letters and words. The design cards are double sided. The design cards are somewhat flimsy - not sure how long they will last. But they have to be thin to allow the magnet to stick to the card.
