The Magna Color 3D Magnetic Design Station magically transform designs into vibrant 3D artwork by using the magnetic coloring studio and colorful 3D Magic dots. Use the revolutionary pens to color in the design stencils, then put on your 3D Ultra Vision Glasses to watch your artwork jump off the screen in real 3D! When finished, sweep the dots back into the sorting system to sort them back into their individual colors again. With all pieces self-contained in the unit, this innovative crafts toy allows for no-mess playing!

Best part: 
(Magic Dots are non-magnetic and extremely safe for kids!)

Magna Color is a specially designed magnetic drawing studio with a screen sweeper that impressed industry guru Dr. Toy who named it one of her Top 10 Creative Toys for 2012.

“Tech 4 Kids has gone back to the drawing board to reinvent the board itself,” wrote Dr. Toy in her review. “Each creativity station gives kids an innovative designing world to generate 3-D artwork, allowing them a new way to let their creativity run wild. The unique magic dot pens allow children to place the 3-D dots to color in the stencil design by either creating a single spot or make trails of multiple dots by running the pen across the screen. When finished, they sweep the dots into the sorter compartment and watch as the dots magically return back into the pens with absolutely no mess.”
- Replacement Pen Comment from the company: A small quantity of product shipped this past summer included malfunctioning pens. As a company dedicated to high quality product, Tech 4 Kids, the manufacturers of Magna Color, would like anyone with malfunctioning pens to contact them at the following email: for a set of free replacement pens and dots.

Here is what I think:

My kids LOVE this toy! My only problem with it is it is not recommended for kids under the age of 4. Why? Because they will stick it in their mouths, which has been a  problem. It's not as easy as "keeping it away" from the 2 (& a half!) year old, as there is no "escape" for my seven year old from her, and she will have a FIT if she doesn't get to play! I have had quite a time cleaning this toy up off the floor, but that's because my children are messy and careless and oblivious to the fact that I do NOT want to be their personal assistant/maid.

I love that this product puts storing it and solves a problem, but they still end up in the floor with the kids fighting over it. I myself had a chance to play with it, and I was having a blast! The pre-cut sheets make it easier for smaller kids to get the hang of it, but you can also "draw" free form and come up with your own images. You can make whatever your imagination tells you to! Limitless! There are plenty of "dots" and I experienced no problems while using this toy.

The 3D wasn't as "wow" as I was expecting but the kids thought that was the coolest part!

Other than that.. I think this toy is PERFECT for gifting to the child in your family this Christmas. It says recommended for children ages 4-6 But I think it would be appropriate for kids up to age 11. I love that it brings out the kids artistic creative play, and Giana has a real flair for designing pictures with it.

When Devonny will stop screaming long enough to not snatch it from her I mean. 

I don't know guys-- right now (for me) it is hard to have toys that aren't compatible with BOTH kids simultaneously because Devonny just doesn't understand.

I know exactly what you mean about the kid problem. My oldest is 4, and my youngest is 20 months. Little one is RELENTLESS when it comes to getting involved in whatever big one is doing. It's sort of sweet, but I feel bad that my eldest is somewhat limited in how complex her activities can get, due to safety and sheer mess concerns. If you figure out a solution, let me know! I'd love to get this! ;)
