Magformers are more expensive than other similar brands but they are very durable.

I have these and kids play with them throw them but none of them are broken so far. Magnetic still stays in shape, hold pretty tight and plastic parts are still durable.

I saw my friend had cheaper one (forgot the actual name) and didn't look as good as these ones. When you shake inside magnetic also moved, some plastic parts separated.

IMHO, it's worth to pay little more and get durable one for this kind of toy.

Magformers are fantastic: they have strong magnets that stick well together and they are extremely durable. My toddlers throw them around all the time and I don't think a single one has broken yet. In general, if they are under a dollar a piece it is a good deal, although some pieces are bigger and more expensive. They are wonderful toys for open-ended building and experimentation.

Exactly, you don't want to risk them breaking and ending up with free neodymium magnets, which are quite dangerous if eaten.

I will echo the build quality and the "worth-it" aspect of paying a premium for these. We've expanded our sets over the last few years with not one piece failing on us. These are just so much fun.

One note - the paw patrol and other magformers with 'pictures' in them are not as nice as other sets, IMHO. The "pictures" slide in and easily slide out in play and don't seem to add a lot of value/enjoyment to play time with my kids. If you're trying to pick between sets, I'd suggest getting more with fun shapes than ones with pictures.

Even with 30% off these are much more expensive than other brands that I have found to be just as durable. We have 1 set of magformers and my kid actually prefers the Cra z Art brand tiles by quit a bit and you can get those under $.50 each tile when on sale. This is a good deal if you have to have magformers brand though.

What other brands do you recommend? (only the cra z art ones?)
Where do you get the other ones from?

Thanks
