MagaPlay-A Great Magnet Play Product

*****This is a repost of a review I did a couple of months ago. However, the company has contacted me and offered a giveaway prize for my readers! Yeah, I'm so excited for all of you. See the bottom for more details.

Every toddler needs magnetic toys to play with and I think MagneKase is the neatest of these products out there. I like it because it holds magnets, has a magnetic activity board, and can also be used as an activity board. Instead of having to carry magnets and magnetic board separately, this product has them together in one. This little case also keeps coloring pages in place. The MagnaKase box has a magnetic dry erase surface this is also a storage case that can kit right inside a backpack. The case comes with magnet strips that keep coloring pages in place as well. The case is large enough to store crayons and markers as well. (Notice my daughter is using the magnets on two different surfaces-there are magnetic boards on both the outside and inside). Note: the magnets used in the pictures do not come with the product).

There are also reusable coloring pages. They have both plastic and wooden storage boxes. I have the wooden box and really prefer it (if you know me at all, you know my love of wooden products for children).

The 11-3/4" x 9-1/4"x 2" box is made of renewable wood and has brass hinges and clasp. The MagnaKase is manufactured in the United States and is Patent Pending. The Color and Erase sheets are awesome because they can be colored over and over.

My daughter spends ALOT of time using this product. It is a huge hit with her. We use it during our learning time every day. We use it constantly-in the car, at grandma’s, waiting in line, the list goes on…

You know what else I love about this company? 5% of their profits are donated to a Children’s Charity.

What a wonderful idea this Magnakase is! I love that it's a combination of toys all in one case. Great for when kids loose their attention easily. I also love that it can double as a lap desk and has a dry erase board. Really wonderful and creative product.
Please enter me and thanks for this giveaway.

Hi! I just stopped by from your award nomination at 'Adventures in Montessori'. I am also a mama trying to incorporate both Montessori and Steiner into our home & lives & am excited to have found your blog!

About this product - well, I love that it's a wooden box. That makes it a precious thing to the child (& the parents :) & will ensure that it is cared for & will last a lot longer than any plastic toys. The fact that it has a magnetic board inside is fantastic! I can't think of any other wooden case like that.
