[Amazon.ca] Magformers 141 pieces on Amazon $141.60

Hi Folks,
The large set of magformers is finally at the lowest price ever based on CCC.
These last and are fantastic for occupying/teaching kids.

I agree with this.
We have a few hundred pieces and they were all about $0.50 per piece at Winners and Walmart over the past few years. No time machine but they can be had at a cheaper price (for reference).

Are you sure? There has been a deluge of regular price items because 'they are in stock' and that makes them hot for some reason? Seems to be redflagregular lately...

For anyone interested, I think some of the other style of these are better.

My kids love building with magnets, so it’s a great concept (for us anyway) but since picking up the different brand (playbees for us) my kids haven’t touched their magformers. Maybe it’s just preference, but they’ve preferred the “solid” style of other brands to the “outline” style of magformers.

Ugh I didn’t actually comment on the price.

I think this price is actually okay for these - magformers are expensive in general, so if you want magformers then the price is okay.

I’m not voting hot or cold, solely because while I think the price is good for these, I think the other brands (which happen to be cheaper) are better.

How are the cheaper no name Chinese knockoffs? (Or should I say Chinese random named companies like HUGALI and IGMATY).

I bought magformer sets whenever they went on sale before I learned of the cheaper sets and was kicking myself. I must say though that my kid loves them and I find them very satisfying to play with also.

I bought the MIBOTE brand off amazon, $0.50 per piece. All pieces are solid and kid loves it (rather play with magnet blocks instead of megabloks, etc.). With the money saved on the pieces, I'm considering buying more pieces since we use up all 110 pieces every time. We end up fighting over the pieces since it's fun for me too!

That's pretty witty, good one!

The normal price is anywhere from $1.20 to $1.50 per piece, so $1.00 per piece represents a discount anywhere from 16-33%. The odd time you might get a 44-piece set for $30, that kind of thing.

But if someone was looking to purchase, and didn't want to wait for a blue moon, it's a pretty good value.

But hey, why miss an opportunity to be snarky? Definitely encourages people to post things they find that others might find useful huh!

P.S. This site isn't hotflagdeal.com either, maybe put a bit more effort next time? Maybe something like "This isn't the "Fair Deals" forum.

The magnets may corrode and come out of the plastic, so between 'minor inconvenience' and 'very dangerous' based on your kids age.
