My daughter is 3 and its really hard For her to move the balls around. Once you get one the hook together and then she gets frustrated. It's cute and a good idea but I don't see if laying long with her.
I saw my son using a magnetic maze at daycare so I purchased this in order to help with his numbers. Unfortunately the magnetic strength of the pen is not strong enough to actually carry the balls from the center to the designated number area. My son gets frustrated (even though he was happy and excited to start using it) and just gives up after a few tries. I myself get annoyed because I can't even get the pen to grasp the ball! Wanted to love it, def had the potential if working right.
