If your son is into Ninjago, you need this. My son is six years old and we have some other sets. The description states," for 9 and up", but my son has no problem putting the sets together. I help if he gets stuck, but for the most part he can put most sets together himself. We have not opened yet. It will be a Christmas present, but came nicely packaged and I did check to make sure all the pieces are there. I can't wait for him to open it.
Magnets are, by far, one of the most fascinating things for children to experience. The excitement of polarity seems like magic to them. This Primary Science Magnet Set by Learning Resources is a wonderfully unique magnet set. The ladybug maze is adorable! Using the large yellow magnet or the purple magnetic post underneath the maze shows children how magnets can pull items (the ladybugs) around. Using the two cars teaches them that magnets can also push items around. This set also comes with a set of activity cards and simple experiments to get children started. They are laminated to last through many preschool science sessions. The children absolutely loved the discs that seemed to float above each other on the purple post. The flat magnets fit on the underside of the cars and moving the polar sides together causes one to flip around the other direction and click to the other. The surprised squeals and giggles were proof that science really is fun! Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I think our 3 year old finds this a ho-hum activity since she knows her colors quite well and doesn't have a lot interest in this activity. She certainly prefers the blank side so she can design it herself. I think it's a good color-learning activity for those needing to learn colors.
