Magnetic Numbers


This is a review from a buyer not a user of this product. I bought this product for my granddaughter for this Christmas 2013. It seems like it will be great for her to learn to write her numbers and recognize the numbers as well.
Great design.

Magnetic writing


I am giving a review from the buyers view not the user's view. This will be a Christmas present to my granddaughter this Christmas 2013. It looks like it will be really good for my granddaughter to begin to learn to write her letters.
It is made very well. Nice design.

Difficult for those with fine motor issues


Using the pen for students with fine motor issues can be difficult. However once magnet balls are in raised position it is a nice sensory for students to race with their finger to push them down againMore > < Less


love it, but...


I can't speak highly enough about the concept of this toy. Unfortunately the first one I bought almost immediately had a magnetic ball that wouldn't come up all the way and, although the Grommet replaced it right away (much appreciated!), the second one had the opposite problem--one of the balls wouldn't push back down. I hope these glitches get fixed because I would love to order more of these.More > < Less


Not satisfied


I bought this product for my 4 yr old granddaughter who is very smart. However, not all the magnetic balls pop up when the pen is traced over the letter. She was not at all interested in the product. Grommet was very responsive in processing my return.More > < Less

MagnaTab - Magnetic Writing Board

About Magnatab

The ABCs of Writing

As a wise woman once said, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun, find the fun and snap the job is a game”.

Magnatab does just that. It’s a magnetic board and stylus that put the fun in learning how to write the alphabet and form numbers. Inspired by Montessori’s sandpaper tracing letters that enable kids to feel the shape with their fingers thereby committing the form to muscle memory, Lisa Mahar came up with the idea for Magnatab.

With the help of directional arrows to provide guidance, children use the stylus to trace letters and numbers correctly. As the stylus makes contact with the board, it creates a magnetic pull that brings the beads from within the board to the surface, providing sensory reinforcement as the forms take shape. To clear the board, children must use their finger to push the beads down, a tactile experience that further aids the learning process. Magnatab is also available in a freehand version. Whichever board you choose, the stylus helps develop the fine motor skills necessary for grasping a pen or pencil.

Magnatab is just the thing for kids who love to play and grown ups who want their children to love to learn.
