The blocks are beautifully painted but to call them magnetic is a far stretch. You have to hunt to find the positive and negative sides that will attract to each other and if you let go of one of the blocks, it falls. We will use them as regular blocks and NOT get Frustrated trying to find the magnet that is not really strong enough to be used.

Do not waste your money or time!
Magnets barely work. I exchanged one box for another. The magnets still did not work. Also most of the block facets do not magnetize at all. I had to draw matching images on corresponding ends of blocks so that we knew which facets would even magnetize.

These blocks are beautiful, but...
They really are gorgeous. The paint is very smooth, and they look very nice. However, they are not really magnetic blocks. Yes, 2 sides of each block have a magnet, 1 is a positive charge, the other a negative charge. That means that you have to rotate the blocks many time to find the right combination to where they will "stick" together. It is difficult for me (an adult), and impossible for my kids. Also, the magnets are very weak. Attaching 2 block together, and lifting the top block, the bottom will fall.
They are great as block, but not worth the $$$.

Fun but not all sides are magnetic
I thought all of the sides were magnetic but it's not. It's hard to determine which side is magnetic and which isn't. The corners are getting worn down from being played with.

Blocks were not what I expected. Did not get 12, smaller box, no round pieces. Not very magnetic, only on one side, which makes it aggravating. Disappointed.

Do not buy
They are not very strong as magnets. We as adults had a very hard time finding the magnet side. I don't know how a two year old would play with them. In fact she took them out of the box and went off to play with something else

Waste of time and money
I'd give no stars if I could! The magnets barely work and these are definitely not developmentally appropriate! Do not get!

Magnets barely work, and the blocks have to be lined up just right to stick. No way my toddler can get these to stick on her own. Ok regular blocks, though.

These blocks aren't magnetic at all! I got them hoping to use them on road trips, but since the magnet is so weak they won't work. I'll probably just give them away.
