Review:
Everyone, including adults, enjoyed the challenge of arranging magnetized rings on an upright rod in the same order as shown one of the 40 pattern cards. The challenge is that some of the rings touch and others have spaces between them, so solvers have to turn them to the positive or negative side so they can touch or float away from each other as shown on the card. Through their own trial and error experimentations, kids learn about polarity and magnetism. Once youngsters master the challenge, they'll have great fun introducing it to others.
