These are a favourite in our household! Well worth the money. My daughter is 2 1/2 and has been enjoying them since she was less than 1 year. Her little friends always gather in my kitchen to play with them. My 9 month old son has recently discovered them too. The illustrations are beautiful, the animals are quite varied. The only negative is that you have to make sure that little ones don't bite them because the edges of the pictures will start to peel off. The larger animals have more magnetic surface so they are a bit more difficult to pull off than the smaller animals.
