Magna Tiles: My favorite toy of all

Best. Toy. Ever.

Magna Tile Tower

Except not a toy. Here is the link to the two sets that we have Magna-Tiles Translucent Colors 100 pieces. I'm warning you, it's also incredibly addictive for adults as well as the children they are meant for.

A totally awesome, geometry-using, making-building-fun, set of plastic tiles with magnets on every side so you can create anything to you want.

We discovered these from friends and they are worth every penny and believe me, you need to shell out a lot of pennies ot get a set big enough to build with. We got our first set of 100 pieces from Gigi (great grandma on my husband's side), then my stepmom wanted to get my son another set last winter.

Except that the factory flooded.

So the black-market opened up and Maga-Tiles were scarce. Really people, it was ridiculous.

Finally, the factory went back online, although having seen the crazy blackmarket the price is now almost twice as high as the already-crazy-high price they had before.

And that is what grandparents are for.

No birthday is complete without presents, and no birthday party for an adult is complete without giving the children a present at the outset so they have something to keep them busy! So my dad and stepmom whipped these out at my dad's birthday party this summer.

Okay. I'm back. I'm online. I've dealt with things that needed dealing with ... including a REAL client who hired me for my expert PR freelance services!

So I'm sorry that I haven't been commenting every day like I like to ... and those magnetic blocks are amazing ... thankfully my kids are beyond (kinda) building days. They still dig into the GIANT box of Legos from time to time ...

And, yes, thank the lucky stars for grandparents. My mom fed (and still feeds) my daughter's American Girl doll obsession ...
