**Updated at bottom with winner**

Thanks to all who entered!

One of the most important criteria for me when purchasing toys for my children is that the toys be educational. With all of the technologically advanced toys on the market today education seems to take a back seat to music, lights, and sounds. As a mother I know my children’s desire to have the latest and greatest toys, but I also know my desire for them to learn while they play.

Recently I came across a company that makes educational toys that are both fun and portable. MagnaPlay takes the idea of magnetic toys and kicks it up a notch by making them easy to transport. “MagnaPlay strives to educate children and facilitate their creativity with its innovative educational activites. From learning the alphabet and numbers to coloring, word games, and puzzles, MagnaPlay offers fun activities for children of all ages.” With their main product the MagnaKase (which is a magnetic case designed to be an activity and storage center) MangaPlay built the rest of their products as accompaniments to the first. MagnaPlay’s mission is that they are dedicated to manufacturing innovative and creative activities that will enable children to learn while having fun anywhere, anytime! With all of their toys assembled in the US and tested by an accredited third party testing lab, MagnaPlay guarantees the safety of their toys and does so with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee! And just in case you need another reason to purchase MagnaPlay toys, 5% of their profits are donated to a Children’s Charitable Organization.

We r100_4059eceived the Wooden Magnetic Number Puzzle from MagnaPlay. The Wooden Magnetic Number Puzzle comes with 30 magnetic wooden tiles that fit together to form 3-piece number, picture sets. The MagnaPlay magnetic number puzzle is designed to be used with the MagnaKase. I have to say that my two year old son really enjoyed playing with the number puzzle. With the help of his older sisters he was counting to ten (and recognizing the numbers) in a matter of an hour. The one gripe I do have about the MagnaPlay Wooden Magnetic Number Puzzle is that the product page is a little unclear about what is included in the purchase price. The picture shows the number puzzle being utilized with the MagnaKase, but the the MagnaKase does not come with the number puzzle. In the written description this is made clear by stating: MagnaKase not included, but by looking at the photos alone you get the impression that they are sold together. So while my children did thoroughly enjoy the magnetic number puzzle (they used the refrigerator in place of the MagnaKase) they could not take the puzzle along with them, which is pretty much what makes this product unique. I just wanted to make sure that was clear to anyone who may want to buy this product! * This has sense been changed on the website*

Buy it! You can purchase the MangaPlay Wooden Magnetic Number Puzzle and lots of other great MagnaPlay toys at MagnaPlay.com!
