Guidecraft back to school give-away: Magneatos

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on August 3, 2012

in Give-Aways, Magneatos from Guidecraft

As part of the Guidecraft back to school give-away extravaganza, hosted by our Guidecraft Educator’s Team, I am giving away this wonderful set of Magneatos!

I received this set of magneatos over the summer so my students haven’t had the chance to play with them yet – but I did!

I thought I would show you how the magneatos stick together to create fun designs and shapes…

Since the magneatos are so large, my grandson was even able to play with them. The magneatos are a wonderful tool for play, exploration of magnetic qualities, construction, and turn a magneato ball and stick into a microphone and you have some dramatic play too!

I love the Magnetos! What a great idea.

2 Jane August 7, 2012 at 12:13 am

We have Magnetos in the classroom and the children LOVE them. We have a very small set so adding to our set would he great!

3 Corie August 3, 2012 at 12:35 am

I like the block mates in the 3+ category

4 Karissa August 3, 2012 at 12:36 am

I love the Guidecraft rainbow blocks, especially the sand and shimmering water ones.

5 Aja Kunda August 3, 2012 at 12:37 am

I love how ig and colorful the pieces are. We just went to a friends house and mu 18 month old tried to build with the leggos. The were so small and he was putting them in his mouth. He would LOVE this set.

6 Amylynn August 3, 2012 at 12:37 am

I love the construct it sets and the twister curves. Great for fine motor development and building creativity. I saw the magneatos at the home school convention and thought they were fabulous.

7 Melissa Teets August 3, 2012 at 12:38 am

I love, love, love the activity desk! It would hold all of our art supplies no problem. I just stumbled across your blog, and love it! Thanks for all of the ideas.

8 Meggen August 3, 2012 at 1:03 am

Love all of the construction toys, especially the Magnetos! Easy ways for kids to get creative and build!

9 Amanda August 3, 2012 at 1:12 am

I love the storytelling kits!!! (the girl who loved danger is really catching my attention for my youngest)

10 Kristen August 3, 2012 at 1:20 am

I love the magneatos! Magnetic blocks have been on my wishlist for a long time. I did see their balance base on the website. That was pretty awesome. It would be great for strengthening body control.

11 Jamie Morris August 3, 2012 at 1:49 am

Wow! Guidecraft has so many quality and unique products! I must say that one of the first to catch my eye was the beautiful Storytelling Boxes by Steve Light. Having a good sense of story is the basis for enjoying reading and by retelling with these props, the children can go back and “read” on their own or with a buddy. This strengthens their knowledge of story structure and allows them to be successful readers right away. This ability is also directly related to the writing process of “telling your own story.” The Rapunzel set is so gorgeous and I love the fact that there is an African story as well as a Japanese one.

I do have a very small sample set of Magnetos that would be so much more useful in my classroom if I had a few more pieces to add:)

12 Jennifer Jackson August 3, 2012 at 2:06 am

I have been looking for a large magnet set for my son for awhile now. Magnetos look absolutely perfect! They are definitely my favorite guide craft product.

13 Sara @ Embracing Destiny August 3, 2012 at 2:23 am

There are so many Guidecraft products to love! We have the rainbow, sand, and water blocks. My daughter’s 5th birthday is tomorrow and I would love to get the Magneatos for her. She is autistic and loves to build with blocks. This would be great play therapy for her! I also love all the pretend kitchen play items on the website. My daughters would have fun with that.

14 Lindsey@Kindred Spirit Mommy August 3, 2012 at 2:27 am

These are awesome, LOVE them! The sorting food trays are also very cool. :)

15 Amber Smith August 3, 2012 at 2:32 am

Their Deluxe Art Center is fantastic! So many places to store crafts and supply materials. I love it. Thanks for this giveaway and for helping me with my Santa list, lol

16 J Kipper August 3, 2012 at 3:33 am

I like the plywood trucks: they look sturdy and just the right size for kids to handle.

17 Mary @ Parenthood August 3, 2012 at 6:22 am

The rainbow blocks are pretty neat but the magneatos are by far my favourite Guidecraft product.

My friends (well their kids) have them and everyone plays with them, even the adults. Seems to be a toy that doesn’t get stale

18 melinda marshall August 3, 2012 at 6:44 am

I love the magneatos! I just know my kids would love them!!!

19 Carol August 3, 2012 at 6:57 am

I love the Steve Light Storyboxes. First thing that came to mind was my autistic students would love these!

20 Jill August 3, 2012 at 7:12 am

kitchen helper

21 Diane Quigley-Clune August 3, 2012 at 7:17 am

I love the Desk to Easel Art Cart on the Guidecraft site! Thanks for giving me a chance to win the magneatos, they look cool!

22 virginia August 3, 2012 at 7:20 am

Many things to love, but my all time favorite is the magneatos! These would be perfect for my preschool class! Thank you!

23 Angelica Wilson August 3, 2012 at 7:27 am

I really like See and store dress up centre in 3+ category and inspired by your website, I am looking into expanding my music program into preschool programs… This would be a great addition to our classroom as well as hours of play for my 2 little ones. ;) thank you for such a great site and this amazing offer!!!

24 Brigitte Neill August 3, 2012 at 7:29 am

I love the Flower match garden patch!

25 Annie Erwin August 3, 2012 at 7:31 am

I love the Guidecraft Kitchen Helper! My kiddos love to help me cook/bake and this stand has been amazing!

26 Jeanine August 3, 2012 at 7:31 am

Guidecraft creates toys that both of my sons love to play with for hours. Recently, we received the animal train and sort puzzle as a gift. My 2 and 4 year love to play with it. We can work together as a family or the boys can do the puzzle by themselves.

27 Lakisha Reid August 3, 2012 at 7:35 am

I really like the Guidecraft Modular Science Center . In my case I do not have a lot of space in my classroom and the upright design will help me save space, but still offer the students plenty of science to explore.

28 Peggy August 3, 2012 at 7:41 am

My grandson would love the constuction set match and sort activity. He is all about his cars and trucks!
The light box would also be lots of fun!

29 maureen August 3, 2012 at 7:46 am

My 22 pre-k students love to build and the Magneatos look like a wonderful tool to create all sorts of structures! I also loved the Skyscraper building set on the website!

30 Rebecca McDonald August 3, 2012 at 7:48 am

I love the Steve Light storytelling products. What a great way to engage the kids in language and literacy. Engage being the key word. You can use these in so many ways, teaching many things all at once! I’m definitely going to look into getting some of these for the children I work with. Thanks!

31 Andrea August 3, 2012 at 7:49 am

I love their bookshelf! I also was intrigued by the kitchen set that folds down and can slide under a bed.

32 Kimberly August 3, 2012 at 7:56 am

The Magnetos are my favorite but I also love the Farm Animal Blockmates!

33 bethany thompson August 3, 2012 at 7:57 am

Love the 3d feel and find set.

34 Dawn Stephens August 3, 2012 at 8:02 am

I love the Magnetos! My class sqeals whenever I get them out!

35 Amber August 3, 2012 at 8:08 am

I absolutely love the Dress-Up Carousel (along with the Magneatos!)!

36 Lydia Koltai August 3, 2012 at 8:13 am

I just love the Guidecraft rainbow blocks! I hope to get a small set for my family this Christmas. My email is

37 Emily August 3, 2012 at 8:19 am

These look like so much fun! I’ve seen similar things, but these Magneatos look perfect for preschool hands. I like the curved set too; a great way to build the set.

38 Sami August 3, 2012 at 8:21 am

Thanks, I actully love the entire site. My LO birthday is the 16th so I ended up getting him the Primary Puzzle robot & the shape and color sorter. I love the block mates they will be next on our list.

39 Adrienne August 3, 2012 at 8:26 am

I really like the tactile turn n touch–it looks well made and durable.

40 Nicole Schink August 3, 2012 at 8:30 am

I love the Noah’s Ark book display piece in the furniture setting! I also love the idea of the magnetos. Thank you for the chance to win!

41 Brenna August 3, 2012 at 8:32 am

These magnets are so fun. My preschool students use them for microphones. LOL

42 Diane Miesner August 3, 2012 at 8:37 am

I love the Hideaway Country Kitchen. It is unbelievable how small it becomes when you fold it down to store it!

43 Maureen August 3, 2012 at 8:39 am

Too many items that I absolutely love! The furniture is very functional and the toys look very engaging and durable. I am very interested in those Magnetos – my students are always interested in magnets and building.

44 Cindy Compeau August 3, 2012 at 8:50 am

I love the single canvas book display! I have looked for four years for a book display for my preschool. I put it in my cart right away, and will be adding a set of Magneatos. Neato!

45 Wendi August 3, 2012 at 8:52 am

I LOVE the market loft! That is the neatest idea!

46 Carol Itter August 3, 2012 at 8:54 am

I love the storytelling sets. So imaginative.

47 Emma ray August 3, 2012 at 9:02 am

I think the light boxes are so cool. I have been thinking about getting one for a long time now.

48 Amanda August 3, 2012 at 9:03 am

There are many, many great items to choose from. My daughter is almost three, so I think she’d have lots of learning fun with the Flower Match Garden Patch…I would, too!

49 serena ames August 3, 2012 at 9:04 am

Single Canvas Book Display

50 Michele Smith August 3, 2012 at 9:10 am

When I went to the Guidecraft website I really found myself wishing I could purchase the dress up carousel. I would definately choose the natural color to encourage boys to use the dress-up clothes as well. I like how it can house all the hang up clothes as well as other items . I think it would be easier for the children to learn to put the items away themselves as this area always tends to be a mess in my classroom.

51 Mary August 3, 2012 at 9:11 am

The magneatos are fantastic. I also really like the Center Stage Puppet Center.

52 Holly Cousino August 3, 2012 at 9:16 am

I love the sensory stepping stones. I have 2 ASD kiddos with sensory needs. They love them!

53 Holly Strohl August 3, 2012 at 9:18 am

Hi Deborah,

Guidecraft has so many wonderful items but when reviewing them all if I had to choose one, I’d go with The Wall Mounted Barnyard
Box. I love the way it’s available anytime since it’s permanently on the wall. Also very interactive, easy to manipulate, and the locks add
to the intrigue of the toy. I have had many children in my classroom whom I’ve purchased keys and locks for so they can satisfy their curiosity as to how these “Adult toys” work! Great Item.



54 LeeAnn Veinotte August 3, 2012 at 9:28 am

I really love the Sorting Food Tray puzzles. These would be wonderful in our classroom, for we set up the table for snack and this would help the children learn table placement!

55 Lori Summers August 3, 2012 at 9:29 am

I love the Magneatos and have been wanting to get some for my daughter for a while!! I also love the Interlox!! My daughter got something similar in a kids meal a while back and she plays with them all the time interlocking them and creating things, but there’s only a few pieces, so I think she would love the Interlox and make all kinds of fun things!!

56 Linda August 3, 2012 at 9:37 am

I really like the Magnetos. A fellow teacher has them and I am always borrowing them for my little kiddos (3 year old preschoolers). I also would like to try the Rainbow Blocks they look like they would be a fun addition to our bock area :0)

57 Jennifer August 3, 2012 at 9:40 am

I liked the storytelling sets based on fairytales. Very cool!

58 Janet August 3, 2012 at 9:41 am

I have a smaller version of the magnetos and my kiddos love them and are so intrigued with the wonder of the magnets and how they magically hold the pieces together. Creativity is the wonder of kiddos. The dress up carousel is another winner
. Crossing my fingers

59 Debbie Rowland August 3, 2012 at 9:42 am

I like to use unconventional items in my construction/block center. Cups, sponges, etc. The Interlox Set on Guidecraft caught my eye. I could see my children using them in creavtive ways. I would be thrilled to win the Magnetatos set!

60 Roopa August 3, 2012 at 9:45 am

Love all the construction toys, especially the Magnetos!

61 Stacey August 3, 2012 at 9:46 am

There are so many quality items on their website. I would use the fraction action board to encourage problem solving skills in by preschool children.

62 Marian Sefcik August 3, 2012 at 9:49 am

I love the Skyscraper Building Set. What a nice alternative to blocks.

63 Clara August 3, 2012 at 9:53 am

I love the Rainbow blocks, especially the ones with Shimmering Water. I would love to have a set to use on my homemade light table!

64 Carol Eden August 3, 2012 at 9:54 am

I love the play kitchen. I think dramatic play is so important for children. It gives them the opportunity to learn to work together. Such fun!

65 Toyia Williams August 3, 2012 at 9:54 am

I love the deluxe art center and the magneatos.

66 Lisa August 3, 2012 at 9:56 am

I love the magnetos jumbo master builder set!

67 Miss pat August 3, 2012 at 9:58 am

Well my kids would just absolutely go nuts over the magneatos. Not to mention I could play too. every time I go to the Guidecraft webs site and look at thier products I drool. They have great stuff. Just wish I had a bigger budget….Right now I think the Magneatos are my number one pick for a must have in my classroom…

68 Sharyn August 3, 2012 at 10:01 am

My daycare children played with these at another providers home and loved them, these make great imagination tools!!

69 Karen August 3, 2012 at 10:01 am

I loved the Steve Light storytelling boxes!

70 Suzanne Morales August 3, 2012 at 10:03 am

I love that if I win this set I can build upon it with the curved magneatos or master builder set. I also love the block mates . . . what a good idea!

71 Kayla August 3, 2012 at 10:07 am

I think the wall mounted lock set puzzle type thing would be super fun, for the kids of course;)
I have a baby boy on the way, he would love the magneatos!
My girl would have her blue eyes fixed on the princess collection from the website.
Time to go shopping!

72 Janet T. August 3, 2012 at 10:07 am

I’m always looking for good building sets. They’re always so popular and this has the added advantage of the “science” of magnets.

73 cherise August 3, 2012 at 10:12 am

I love the construct it sets and the twister curves. Great for fine motor development and building creativity.

74 Jackie Chiasson August 3, 2012 at 10:12 am

Where to begin?There are so many things I would love to order on the Guidecraft website.I do love the modular science center.

75 Teri Lund August 3, 2012 at 10:12 am

I really love their block storage, a little utilitarian I know, but kids play with blocks WAY more when they are neatly organized. :)

76 Vicki Reptke August 3, 2012 at 10:25 am

We love the magnetos! We got a small set given to our dayhome and we play with them so much! What cool toys!

77 Kimberly G. August 3, 2012 at 10:26 am

I’d love to get the all in one modern kitchen for my daughter. I know she’d love it and I like that it matches our kitchen. She could “cook” right along with me!

78 Ronda August 3, 2012 at 10:30 am

I have had them in pre-k classrooms before. I loved watching children roll the balls close to the posts and watch in amazment as they are drawn to the magnet. One of my favorite toys from Guide Craft is the Tactile Turn ‘N Match. The children in my classrooms have loved this toy.

79 pearl August 3, 2012 at 10:31 am

I love the balance beam. Classic. pearlho81 at gmail

80 th*rstyp August 3, 2012 at 10:41 am

I love the rainbow blocks! I have wanted them for a while.

81 Robin August 3, 2012 at 10:55 am

I love the Step Up Kitchen Helper! Much safer way to get those kiddos helping and learning all at the same time :)

82 Laurie August 3, 2012 at 11:02 am

Wow, so many neat things! I really liked the balance mazes tho..

83 Kat @ KaydeeBunz August 3, 2012 at 11:14 am

I think the Fraction Action Board looks super neat and would love to add it to our homeschool classroom!!!!!

84 Christina August 3, 2012 at 11:20 am

I love their desk to easel art cart.

cjhopman at hotmail dot com

85 Nate August 3, 2012 at 11:24 am

I have to choose Block Mates as my favorite thing off of the site. Especially the Dinosaur ones!

86 Shannon August 3, 2012 at 11:35 am

I would like the plywood trucks. My class is composed of mostly boys and I know they would love them.

87 nancy c dunnagan August 3, 2012 at 11:37 am

I love the Steve Light story boxes! They are so well crafted and children would have a great time playing with them!!! I also like the rainbow blocks!

88 Amelia Schaeffer August 3, 2012 at 11:44 am

I love Blockmates animals and dinosaurs from Guidecraft’s website!

89 Nichole Moore August 3, 2012 at 11:57 am

I love the blockmate–especially the dinosaurs. What a great way to extend block play!

90 Bethany August 3, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Jr. Hollow Blocks and Arches and Tunnels are on my wishlist this year. My budding architects can’t get enough of building!

91 Kim August 3, 2012 at 12:12 pm

The Rainbow Blocks are an absolute favorite at our center. The children never tire of playing with these blocks and are able to come up with imaginative uses for them in multiple play areas. The children love incorporating them into their unit block construction sites as windows, road signs, or decorative elements. These blocks are a standard in our Math Center. Yesterday a group of children used the Rainbow Blocks for “magical flying carpets” in the dollhouse area!

92 Danielle August 3, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Wow! I wish I had a money tree because they have so many fantastic products! My daughter would love the the rainbow blocks in all varieties! And with her love for reading and my love for organization {and of course reading!!}, I so badly want to order the reading bench with bookshelf and storage space! That is going to the top of my wish list! Thanks so much for posting this give away! I am so excited to learn about Guidecraft and I am super excited about the potential to win those amazing MagNeatos! What kid doesn’t love magnets! =)

93 christine August 3, 2012 at 12:28 pm

I love all of the construction toys–how can you pick just one when the whole set of them,I think I would have to go with the jumbo master builders sets.

94 Still Playing School August 3, 2012 at 12:38 pm

We don’t have any magnet building sets, so I’d go with the Magneatos, but I could look at their site all day!

95 Shalane August 3, 2012 at 12:49 pm

I would love to have the High Rise Step-Up stool for my preschoolers to reach my high sink easier!

96 marsha rickles August 3, 2012 at 12:51 pm

I think Magneatos would be a great building toy for my 3 year old grandson. He is a lego fan. I also like the locking ladders toy on the website.

97 Katie August 3, 2012 at 1:00 pm

My child & I found the Nest & Stack Cubes at one of our local libraries. I would have never thought that nesting & stacking would have so many possibilities. And now I want to order some for MY library.

98 cathy August 3, 2012 at 1:05 pm

I Love the Art Activity desk!

99 Lacy Georges August 3, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I saw a lot of really great items, but the one I really like is the international food for dramatic play! I work in an Low SES and I am all about bringing as much exploration into my classroom while teaching about other cultures.

100 Nancy August 3, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I LOVE the Primary Puzzle Board and so does the 2 year old I have in my pre school.

101 Jocelyn August 3, 2012 at 1:11 pm

I love the construction sets. I always loved them as a child, and now I love doing them with my kids :)

102 Mimi Leach August 3, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Wow! So many wonderful things at Guidecraft. I really liked the tactile toys – that spinning one in particular. So many possibilities! The Magneatos are, of course, neato! I have developed quite an affinity for magnets over the summer and have many plans for the coming school year that involve magnets! These would definitely fit into my plans. Thanks for this opportunity!

103 avery August 3, 2012 at 1:15 pm

wow the deluxe art center….but way out of our price range

104 Linda August 3, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I like the Sun Sorter, the Fraction Action Board and the Deluxe Art Center. And if I ever win the lottery I would love to have one of the lofts for my classroom! lol.

105 Jacqi August 3, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I absolutely love the Storytelling kits! My preschool kids love to tell stories even with pieces of paper! This would be a great addition to our literacy center!

106 Tommie Sue Schindler August 3, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I love the Kitchen Step Up. What a wonderful (and safe) way to include the grandchildren in cooking activities.

107 Kara Norris August 3, 2012 at 1:21 pm

I really liked the Magneatos Curves building toy and the Desk to Easel art cart!

108 Sue August 3, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I love the Center stage Puppet Theater! Great fun for oral language and storytelling!

109 Shannon Stockton August 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I love the memory caps game and the construction and train match sets. I am always working with color, shape, and patterning.

110 Ginny August 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

It was so hard to pick one! I love the 3D feel and find set. I’d also love to win the magnetos for my Pre-K4 classroom. The kids would love it!

111 Rose August 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I like many things but am interested in the light boxes and magneatos.

112 Lindsey August 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

My son has Autism and I have seen him use the Magneaton in his pre-school classroom. He was super focused on matching all the same colors together. It would be amazing to have a set at home for him to play with. The Guidecraft website has so many amazing toys, it would be hard to pick one so I’m sticking with the Magneatons!

113 Cheryl August 3, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I love the rainbow, sand and shimmery blocks–so much fun!

114 Robin Wentz August 3, 2012 at 1:40 pm

The rainbow blocks are awesome, kids love to build, and to see the colors change by putting two blocks together teach children how to mix colors to get other colors.

115 Julieta August 3, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I fell in love with the storytelling sets! I teach pre-nursery and I read stories to my students very often. They enjoy audiobooks and roleplaying as well.. but this storytelling set just blew my mind!! thank you for sharing this website with us!!

116 Woe August 3, 2012 at 1:42 pm

I want to buy the magnetaos for my son since the first time I saw them! There is many more products that I would buy too, among them the 3D Feel & Find, the pirate lamp, wooden blocks and so much more! This company makes gorgeous toys!

117 Christie H. August 3, 2012 at 1:43 pm

I would love the Kitchen Helper. My kids like helping in the kitchen but they are not tall enough to reach the counters.

chepburn77 (at) gmail (dot) com

118 Nancy Reece August 3, 2012 at 1:45 pm

I absolutely love the bookshelf! Great way to turn on little ones to reading and makes a big statement about the importance of reading!

119 Catherine Little August 3, 2012 at 1:45 pm

The kiddie rocker set is adorable. Also love the Magneatos! And the kitchen helper would be awesome when my daughter gets a little older!

120 annette jamison August 3, 2012 at 1:53 pm

The children in my daycare love to play with the small magneatos set that I have for them. By exploring magnetism the children have learned some of the cause and effect properties of magnets. By experimenting with them, they have discovered that not all objects are magnetic. They also incorporate the magnets in many other centers not just the science center. The magneatos make wonderful megaphones in the music center, etc…

121 Margot Ringuette August 3, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Our Centre is currently building a sensory room for the children in our community and I love the tactile bars.
There are so many beautiful items in this catalogue that would make any child’s enviroment a joy to play in. Thanks for sharing!

122 Jessica Clayton August 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I really liked all their double sided bookshelves-you can tell what I’m in the market for here at Riverside Rhymes! I’ll get back to you if I decide to buy one. Thanks for encouraging me to peruse the site.

123 Brooke H August 3, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I love the step up kitchen helper! My little guy always pulls a chair up while I’m cooking to help! This is a cute little idea, just love it!

124 Trisha August 3, 2012 at 2:01 pm

I really like all of the Guidecraft item, but I especially like the wide variety of sorter boards and fraction boards that are available….somthing for all ages!

125 shannon grant August 3, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I LOVE the magnetos, my littles would love them!

126 TARANEH August 3, 2012 at 2:11 pm

I love all of Guidecraft products, but right now I have my eye on their cooking stool that folds. Along with there story books

127 Gabbi August 3, 2012 at 2:19 pm

What a great site! I like the wooden blocks in various shapes. They were under the four plus section.

128 Kensey August 3, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Honestly, the Magnetos have been on my wish list since last year!! In addition to teaching preschoolers, I have toddlers, so I want something they can play with too. My fingers are crossed :) Thanks for the giveaway!!

129 Karen August 3, 2012 at 2:33 pm

They offer so much, one of my likes was the rainbow blocks.

130 Dawn Johnson August 3, 2012 at 2:42 pm

The Peekaboo Lock Boxes look great!

131 Brandi August 3, 2012 at 2:43 pm

I love the sun sorter! There would be so many activities to do with your toddler/preschooler to promote color recognition, sorting, problem solving, patterns and fractions.

132 Jill August 3, 2012 at 2:44 pm

The Storytelling Steve Light sets look so neat. I’ve never seen these anywhere else. Great option to make stories come alive! Also the Magnetos are great. Someone donated a few to the Parenting Room at our church and my 2yr old daughter LOVES them

133 Augusta Hale August 3, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Guidecraft has some really great high quality products! I love their stuff … One thing that caught my eye was the Animal Train Sort & Match – animals & trains – GREAT combination.

134 Lisa August 3, 2012 at 3:07 pm

What amazing products!! I’m drooling over the wall mounted Barn Lock Box!!


135 Terri August 3, 2012 at 3:10 pm

The Feel-n-Find game from Guidecraft has been on our “wish list” for a long time. We love the Guidecraft products.

136 Kristina August 3, 2012 at 3:11 pm

I love the Magnetos! What a great idea.

Thanks for the giveaway!

137 Jerise August 3, 2012 at 3:14 pm

I love the see and store dress-up center for my home daycare. I like that there is a mirror attached to it.

138 Julia August 3, 2012 at 3:20 pm

i love the interlox. great for building on the light table!

139 Suz Dotson August 3, 2012 at 3:24 pm

I love the Magneatos and the Rainbow Blocks!

140 Doreen August 3, 2012 at 3:52 pm

The Construction Truck Sort and Match looks great!

141 Amanda Burrows August 3, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I love the Rainbow Blocks. It would be a dream to have the deluxe art table- simply amazing organized creative space.

142 Dana August 3, 2012 at 3:54 pm

The Block Mates are awesome!

143 Amanda Burrows August 3, 2012 at 3:55 pm

It would be a dream to have the deluxe art table- simply amazing organized creative space. Love the rainbow blocks!

144 Jayne August 3, 2012 at 4:05 pm

The magneatos look like great fun. My Pre-K
class would love a chance to play with this
Thanks for the chance to win this.

145 Judith August 3, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Their 3D feel and find looks awesome! So many things you can do with them.

146 Cindi Thornton August 3, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I love Guidecraft products, so just to pick one, I will say the Tactile Turn N Match.

147 Jill Lauder August 3, 2012 at 4:16 pm

The construction truck sort and match game is super cute!

148 Sarah Hill August 3, 2012 at 4:20 pm

The Magneatos look like so much fun. My older son has a similar product, but the littles can’t play with it because the pieces are too small. This would be great for them. The other product that looked great to me was the Balance Base; great way to get rid of some wiggles without taking up a lot of space.

149 kathy lapan August 3, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I think the jumbo magnetos are the bomb! My baby neice LOVES to build but its hard when you are little and you haven’t learned dexterity yet! Everything falls over! These toys which will stay where she puts them will let her creativity grow!

150 Kelly August 3, 2012 at 4:32 pm

I love many things in the guidecraft catalog, but could find many great uses for the stacking rainbow pyramid blocks. I am currently in a windowless Pre-K classroom :( and have to be creative to bring in a sense of light. These would be a nice addition to the block area and science area.

151 Brittney August 3, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Aside from the magneatos, I’ve also had my on the Contruct It Early Builder set!

152 Brittney August 3, 2012 at 4:36 pm


153 Beth Ronan August 3, 2012 at 4:50 pm

I have magnetos in my room. Kids love them!! You can never have too many!!!

154 Rebecca Malan August 3, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I want the hideaway kitchen. Cute and folds up to store easily.

155 Kara August 3, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Love the dress up carousel!

156 Sheryl Chong August 3, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I love the Marble Maze Balance Bases. We are trying to incorporate more brain/balance games. We add singing a song, spelling your name, or reciting the alphabet to make it more challenging.

157 Sue August 3, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Love the Memory Caps from the manipualtive section. Individual memory game! I love it. Memory is so hard to play as a group. Everyone wants to turn all the cards at once! Putting it on my classroom wish list!

158 Amy @ Hope Is the Word August 3, 2012 at 5:34 pm

I’ve wanted to buy Magneatos for my toddler for a while. Thanks for the chance to win some!

159 Kate August 3, 2012 at 5:35 pm

I love the 76 piece wooden block set – it may be old-fashioned, but could be used to build some lovely structures. It looks super durable as well.

160 Patrice August 3, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I absolutely LOVE the storytelling boxes by Steve Light. What a fabulous way to encourage children to hear the story then recreate it again in their own way. So many possibilities for creativity here!

161 Madison August 3, 2012 at 5:53 pm

They would be perfect for our early childhood wrap around program, ages 3-6. They offer everything a child of that age, or any age would love. Colorful, creative and a perfect fine motor incentive. I LOVE them!

162 Liz August 3, 2012 at 5:55 pm

I LOVE the magnetos! I found some similar ones that are teeny tiny and not good for a three year old but these I’ve been wanting so bad!!!

163 leah B August 3, 2012 at 6:01 pm

I really like all of their manipulative especially the fraction boards and sorters.

164 Denise Funfsinn August 3, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Of course the Magnetos are wonderful and would be a great addition to my developmental preschool classroom. However, I am totally coveting the Steve Light storyboxes. I want all four and any new ones that are developed! Thanks for the opportunity to win Magnetos in this giveaway! ~Denise

165 Jonathan Clauss August 3, 2012 at 6:28 pm

The Magneatos really look neato.

I really like using the Twist n Sort in my classroom, it’s a great fine motor tool and has some significant problem solving involved!

166 Ashley S August 3, 2012 at 6:31 pm

I saw the 3D Feel and Find on the website and it looks like something that I would use alot at school! I already know they love the magnetos, as a resource teacher I get the left over materials and those are not one of my options.

167 Danielle R. August 3, 2012 at 6:33 pm

My son would love the Construct-it kit! Thank you for the giveaway!

168 Kelly Loving August 3, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Love the marble maze balance board – thinks it would be lovely for my 8 year old.

169 MommyPage August 3, 2012 at 6:42 pm

This is a fantastic giveaway!! I know kids would love this!

170 Wendy Rockwell August 3, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Guidecraft dramatic play center
would reinforce the value of imitative play through role playing and give the children feelings of confidence.

171 Kate August 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

I love the magneatos. Guidecraft has many great learning toys, but this one is on my wish list. :)

172 Heather miller August 3, 2012 at 7:34 pm

The school bus loft set up is a classroom fantasy, if money were no object. In the real world, I love the building toys and tabletop easels.

173 Heather August 3, 2012 at 7:39 pm

The dramatic play center! How cool is that!?!

174 Shannon Morris August 3, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Love the rainbow blocks!

175 julie lewis August 3, 2012 at 7:45 pm

I LOVE the tabletop art easels!

176 Michelle August 3, 2012 at 7:48 pm

My boys would love the plywood construction trucks.

177 Kathy August 3, 2012 at 7:50 pm

I think the Magnetos look so cool. I recently saw an idea where kids can use them on a plastic gutter where they move the balls on the inside of the gutter by using the longer pieces on the outside of the gutter. I also liked the curved Magnetos on the Childcraft website

178 Lesley Cox August 3, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I went to the Guidecraft website and wishfully shopped for our special ed preschool were I work. I love the magneatos, but also found the Peekabook Lock Boxes which would be so cool for our kids. Thanks for the chance to win something

179 Kimberley August 3, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Both of my kids would love the Magneatos. And I’m surely drooling over Guidecraft’s Deluxe Art Cart!

180 Linda Cunningham August 3, 2012 at 8:44 pm

I like the skyscraper building set. It makes it easier for children to build tall towers.

181 claire August 3, 2012 at 9:55 pm

I homeschool & this would be a great addition.

182 Sabrina August 3, 2012 at 10:05 pm

I still absolutely LOVE the rainbow blocks, but anything with magnets is a winner in my book too!

183 Emily August 3, 2012 at 10:22 pm

I love the storytelling kits!!

184 Amanda August 3, 2012 at 10:42 pm

I love the Block Mates! The dinosaur ones are adorable- I know they would be a hit in our block area!

185 Jen August 3, 2012 at 10:43 pm

The Steve Light Storytelling Kits are BEAUTIFUL – I’d love to have one of each ;)

186 Joy Wolfe August 3, 2012 at 10:51 pm

I am beginning a new preschool and I just love your Magneatos. I think they would be a wonderful addition to my preschool!

187 Carrie August 3, 2012 at 10:52 pm

Can I say I like it all? lol Alright I like the dress up carousel.

188 Asiya August 3, 2012 at 10:53 pm

I love the Locking Ladders!

189 Brenda Kelley August 3, 2012 at 10:54 pm

I really liked all three of the sensory matching games-especially the dominoes. I teach preschoolers with special needs. These seem like something I could use with two of the 3 year olds I am getting with visual impairments.

190 Megan J August 3, 2012 at 11:09 pm

I love the magnetos! I worked at a daycare center and the kids loved these! They would be a great addition to my very first preschool classroom.

191 Camille Borup August 3, 2012 at 11:19 pm

I love the art desks with the paper rolls! Such a good idea to help provide endless art projects at the art desk!

192 Tracy August 3, 2012 at 11:23 pm

I love all of the dramatic play stuff! The kitchen is super cute!!!

193 Tammy August 3, 2012 at 11:39 pm

I really liked the Multi Match Sensory Disc. The magnetos look great as well. Lots of great things there.

194 Ira August 3, 2012 at 11:49 pm

I have an eye on their Step-Up Kitchen Helper for a while now. It’s awesome!

195 Marie Cormode August 3, 2012 at 11:58 pm

I like the blocks and gross motor toys.

196 Amy Stevenson August 4, 2012 at 12:01 am

I LOVE, LOVE ALL of the construction toys!!! I love to see kids be creative and those encourage that! I enjoyed “Lincoln Logs” when I grew up and these are so much more creative!!!

197 Aly K August 4, 2012 at 12:53 am

I’m a sucker for interesting and inviting building materials in the early childhood setting – these look GREAT! From the website, I also love the interlox blocks – those seem equally exciting!

198 Sofia Barlow August 4, 2012 at 1:27 am

I went to the website and I want everything! Seriously, it’s so hard to choose. But if I can only pick one it will have to be the Dramatic Play.

199 melanie bowers August 4, 2012 at 1:50 am

I love the furniture .Anything guidecraft is great. I love the magneatos – science, building and fun all on one.

200 Kacey August 4, 2012 at 3:00 am

I think my son actually played with these at our county fair (there was a booth set up demonstrating some educational toys) he LOVED them. And, after looking around the Guidecraft site, I’m off to convince my husband that we need the “Girl Who Loved Danger” storytelling set because how awesome is that lake monster puppet?!

201 Victoria August 4, 2012 at 4:02 am

Love the magnetos. They look so unique as a building tool

202 Michele August 4, 2012 at 7:26 am

These are awesome! My in home preschool kids used to play with an itty bitty version of these until they were recalled. They have missed them ever since, and actually still talk about things they built with them, so I know the kids will absolutely love Magneatos! While I love all the Guidecraft products, The Dress-Up Carousel (Natural) has been on my wish list for awhile, it is perfect for small spaces and a fun way to organize dress up costumes.

203 Michele August 4, 2012 at 8:28 am

Just to clarify, obviously, I have a different group of preschool kids now, but still see my old clients regularly. When we get together, the kids still talk about things they remember doing at Ms. Chele’s house, the magnet sets having been a favorite.

204 Faye E. Hunt August 4, 2012 at 8:25 am

I would LOVE the dinosaur blockmates they offer on their site. My three year old son is really into dinosaurs and he would get a kick out of them. The magneatos are pretty cool too! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

205 Martha Chase August 4, 2012 at 8:34 am

I think the Texture Dominoes are great! Our preschoolers really enjoy games especially when the whole class and teachers play together.

206 Rosemary August 4, 2012 at 9:43 am

I love the skyscraper blocks… these are pricey!

207 Janice Stearns August 4, 2012 at 9:57 am

I love the Magneatos best! Many of the products that Guidecraft offers invite open ended playing. I like the City Blocks. They would inspire imagination and creativity as much as the Magneato blocks.

208 rachel August 4, 2012 at 10:07 am

The sensory stepping stones would be great to help a child find their way back into awareness and control of their body.

209 Linda August 4, 2012 at 10:22 am

I already have a couple of sets of the Block Mates and they are a hit with the kids!
As far as “new” items I would love to have, I liked the “Tactile Turn and Match” I like that it added a new dimension to matching. It seems like a more engaging way to play a matching game than the traditional flat pieces.

210 Sara August 4, 2012 at 10:24 am

I love the step up kitchen helper.

211 Krystal Phares August 4, 2012 at 10:30 am

I love the TACTILE TURN ‘N MATCH. I like that I can have a child do a pattern activity or they can discover it and make patterns themselves. I like the corresponding cylinders that also come with it. There are so many activities that you could provide by having this in your classroom. The sensory from this item will help stimulate the brain. It would be very useful for any child on the autism spectrum.

212 tracy p. August 4, 2012 at 10:34 am
213 jocelyn August 4, 2012 at 11:09 am

the step up kitchen helper

214 Kris Cullinan August 4, 2012 at 11:34 am

I love all of the block mates animals and vehicles.

215 Terri August 4, 2012 at 11:57 am

Guidecraft has so many things I love, but I’m quite smitten with the new Steve Light Story Boxes… especially the Rapunzel box.

216 Lora August 4, 2012 at 11:58 am

I’d love their rainbow blocks!

217 jacqui stransky August 4, 2012 at 12:22 pm

I love the new story boxes and can’t wait to try them out with my new group of children in September. I am always impressed with the quality of the Guidecraft products!

218 kristin kittle August 4, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Honestly, my favorite is the Magnetos! I have a daughter in speech therapy and this would be helpful in therapy! I also adore the peekabook lock boxes, BRILLIANT! Thanks for the giveaway!

219 Diane Bode August 4, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I really like the puppet theatre. I would love to have one in our classroom.

220 Stacy August 4, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Would love any of the wooden blocks, but especially like the castle set, would be fun to build with those!

221 Andrea August 4, 2012 at 4:44 pm

I love the all in one play kitchen

222 Melissa August 4, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Love the deluxe art center. so many possibilities
kvaova @

223 Courtney August 4, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway. Magneatos have been on my classroom ‘wish list’ for months! I also like the Fraction Action Puzzle and the Rainbow Blocks from Guidecraft.

224 Sarah August 4, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Like the construction truck sort and match set

225 Deb Dutton August 4, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I’ve never been privileged to have a set of these, but they look like magna-fun!

226 Wren August 4, 2012 at 9:53 pm

I adore the Little Farm House table and chairs, but my dc kids would love the Magnetos!

227 Christy Qualin August 4, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Magneatos are awesome! I also love the sun sorter. Our classroom is called the Sunshine room so anything that has a sun on it or in it, we tend to gravitate toward.

228 Kristine August 4, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Wow what a wonderful website Guidecraft has! I never heard of it until I saw it on your site. My son loves to build things and the construct it Early Builder looks perfect for him! I love toys that allow him to interact with others and this will be perfect to use at his preschool. I also love the magneatos! I have other magnet toys but have not seen anything similar to he ones guidecraft has!

229 Maegan Morin August 4, 2012 at 10:58 pm
230 Cheryl August 4, 2012 at 11:04 pm

I love Guidecraft – so MANY great products!! I’ve had my eye on many of their wonderful choices! I love all their construction toys – especially the skyscraper. I also really like their dramatic play center that looks like a store/market. I would love to have this in my preschool class!!

231 Tammy Rowland August 4, 2012 at 11:19 pm

I like the construction truck sort and match. So many ways a preschooler could use that toy! I’ve had several Guidecraft items… great quality.

232 Elisa August 4, 2012 at 11:47 pm

Looking at their website, Guidecraft has many wonderful things. I love the balance base. It looks like it would be fun and energy expending at the same time!

233 Olivia L August 5, 2012 at 3:13 am

If I had the funds, I’d love to get the Deluxe Art Center for my kids.

234 Pamalot August 5, 2012 at 7:12 am

my fave are the classroom unit blocks.

235 Pamalot August 5, 2012 at 7:13 am

pamfreecycle at gmail dot com

236 Rhiannon N. August 5, 2012 at 9:14 am

The Constuct it set looks neat as well as magnetos of course lol

237 Carol J.L.G. August 5, 2012 at 10:31 am

I love the 3D Feel and Find!!!!!!

238 Goril August 5, 2012 at 11:35 am

I having been wanting to pick up the megneatoes for sometime now,the children love playing with the ones from the toy other toy from the Guidcraft web site that is on my wish list is the puppet theater.

239 Lisa August 5, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I love the wooden grocery products. I always bring empty boxes and containers into our grocery store center, but they never last long. The wooden ones are a great idea!

240 Jessica August 5, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I really love the fraction action manipulatives.

241 Tiffany August 5, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I really love the Twist ‘N Sort set in the Manipulatives section. I am big on Manipulatives. I love that it needs more than just sliding onto the peg. You actually have to twist it and manipulate it to get it on correctly. It gives it that added step but it’s still simple for young learners.

242 Beth DeHart August 5, 2012 at 1:20 pm

The modular science center looks amazing/a good place
to keep items/topics organized and contained in our
science area. I am moving to a pre-k class from Jr. 3′s
so this would be awesome. I love your daily emails/ideas
which I use in my class frequently – they are so different
and exciting!

243 Melissa B. August 5, 2012 at 1:46 pm

I love all of the block mates. They would add a great element to our block area!

244 Pam Jones August 5, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I really like the play dough magnets, I am a small home day care so I don’t have money to go out and buy things. I also liked the food sorting set.

245 Analisa August 5, 2012 at 3:52 pm

I’ve worked in a classroom that had Magneatos and the children LOVED them!!

I love the Guidecraft Rainbow Blocks, too!! :)

246 Lindsay August 5, 2012 at 4:07 pm

I would love to own a Magneato set! I also love the Twist N’ Sort on the Guidecraft site. My little one has loved shaped sorters from a young age.

247 Kimberly Gal August 5, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Wow….just looking at the website makes me salivate…..I really like the magneatos….they would add another dimension to my building center!!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

248 Carrie Hacker August 5, 2012 at 6:15 pm

What I love is how these Magnetos can be shared and enjoyed by a mixed age group! Having children ages 5 -11 is sometimes hard on group activities. This fosters greap cooperative play!

249 Tjaydub August 5, 2012 at 7:37 pm

I love the Magneato blocks, I teach young 3 year olds and we have a limited supply of things to put in block center. I find that many of the children don’t play with the blocks because they get discouraged when the structure falls. A product like this will stop that from happening and keep the creativity flowing! My center believes in learning through play, and I can only imagine how this would amaze my little ones! I look forward to the results of this giveaway!

250 Kathleen Pecic August 5, 2012 at 7:50 pm

I love the story boxes! I want them all!

251 Amy August 5, 2012 at 7:58 pm

The Kiddie Rocker Chair Set – Red is AWESOME!
laprochaine at gmail dot com

252 Jackie August 5, 2012 at 9:56 pm

I absolutely LOVE these! What a great give-a-way :)

253 Valerie August 6, 2012 at 2:19 am

In a dream world, I would love the loft!

254 Amy August 6, 2012 at 7:25 am

I love the dramatic play center.

255 Holly August 6, 2012 at 7:29 am

The magneato magnetic builders would be in my new preschool classroom. What a great way to get the kiddos building in a new, creative way!

256 Laura Dallas August 6, 2012 at 7:38 am

Just love the magneatos~! I have a small set but only a few can play at a time. I would love to add to my set! So much safer than the smaller magnets we have at school.

257 Emily Hall August 6, 2012 at 8:44 am

LOVE it… I am trying to expand my block center into more than just “blocks”, I currently have gears, bristle blocks and regular blocks. This would be a great addition to add. I love the out of the box creativity this will allow for each student to experience. I also love the Classic White Storage Bench with Baskets from Guidecraft website. I could so use this in my reading center. Thank you again for offering such great prizes.. I hope I win.

258 suz August 6, 2012 at 8:53 am

I think this would help bring more interest to the block center.

259 Amy August 6, 2012 at 9:03 am

Wow, the magnetos would be great in my classroom. I just started there and they have few construction toys, so this would be wonderful. I also love the constuct it early builder. Your website is amazing, you have wonderful ideas.

260 Nancy August 6, 2012 at 9:29 am

I love the storytelling boxes!

261 Kimberly August 6, 2012 at 9:36 am

My dream product would be the Deluxe Art Desk!!

262 Lori August 6, 2012 at 9:43 am

So many great products from Guidecraft! I would love a set of magnetos for my classroom this year!

263 KarenElissa August 6, 2012 at 9:45 am

I love the Construct-It sets, fun building!

264 Robin August 6, 2012 at 9:59 am

I love, love, love the Steve Light storytelling boxes!

265 Kaila Gordon August 6, 2012 at 10:02 am

This website always has great, quality toys for home or school. I especially like the dramatic play furniture and tactile toys for preschoolers.

266 Marjorie August 6, 2012 at 10:50 am

I LOVE magnetos, but I also love the sensory discs or the balance block. I try to build neuro-sensory activities into each day at school.

267 Kathee August 6, 2012 at 10:59 am

Magneatos are “neato” ! I could also see hoe fabulous the fold up kitchen could be in the preschool setting…would make it so easy to change centers around!

268 Jill August 6, 2012 at 11:00 am

I love the loft!!

269 Joanne M. August 6, 2012 at 11:11 am

If I were making a wishlist the Mission Book Shelf would definitely be on it.

270 Patricia Slocum August 6, 2012 at 11:12 am

I would love to have the magnetos to add to my classroom! They are such bright colors and the sizes are perfect for little hands!!

271 Greta August 6, 2012 at 11:44 am

What a “wish” website! Love the Contruct it Early Builder Set. What an imagination builder!

272 Rochel S August 6, 2012 at 11:50 am

I really like the 4-in-1 Flipping Floor Easel! My son would be busy with it ALL DAY!

273 Kristin Gideon August 6, 2012 at 11:55 am

I love so many Guidecraft products, but right now I would LOVE to have the Step Up Kitchen Helper. My son would loooove it!

274 shila russell August 6, 2012 at 11:57 am

I loved the 3D Feel and Find World Icons. Good for tactile and sensory play.

275 Robin S. August 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm

I love the dominos, as they are textured and children need to feel things too. Not enough items have a sensory built into them.

276 Katy August 6, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Oooh – I love the Steve Light Storytelling sets – especially the Hansel & Gretel one! What a great way to support storytelling & imagination in the classroom.

277 karla mccollough August 6, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Great addition to our block area. Great for imaginative play!

278 Dayana Fernandez August 6, 2012 at 2:56 pm

I have had the privilege of using magneatos in a previous preschool classroom and I must say, they are ABSOLUTELY wonderful. I’ve been wanting another set for my current preschoolers, I know they will enjoy it as much as myself and my other students did.

The other item I adore from guidecraft is the block play traffic sign set. I love using these to teach my kids the rules of the road and what these signs mean in real life.

279 Chris Mortenson August 6, 2012 at 3:37 pm

The Megneatos look like so much fun for my classroom. I can think of several kids that would like to explore and create with them.

280 Diane Albers August 6, 2012 at 5:15 pm

I would love to have the Deluxe Art Table—or even the smaller one. It would be wonderful to have everything in one place for the children and it looks easy for them to put everything away.

281 Sara Gunnels August 6, 2012 at 5:57 pm

I love the step up kitchen helper! It would be great for home and for school. My daughter cooks with me almost every night and she would be able to reach the counter tops much easier. I also think it would be great for school to reach our hand washing sink easier. It would be much sturdier than the step stool that we currently use. I love your website and wanted you to know that it has helped me be even more creative and enriched my classroom. Thank you for all of your great ideas and for sharing them!

282 Charlene Roddy August 6, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Guidecraft has so many items that I love…the Hideaway 4 section lockers are great for minimizing backpack distractions, and their wide selection of manipulatives such as the nest and stack cubes and cylinders are perfect for my students!

283 Jolene B. August 6, 2012 at 6:42 pm


That lovely piece of furniture would make my life a lot easier!

284 Ellen August 6, 2012 at 6:54 pm

I would absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have the deluxe art center someday…. it would work so nicely in my classroom!

285 NW Homesteader August 6, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I absolutely love the Multi Match Sensory Disc! So many great opportunities!

286 Tavy VanNess August 6, 2012 at 7:54 pm

I love the art desks!

287 Amy August 6, 2012 at 8:15 pm

What a great product for my block center!

288 R. Rochelle August 6, 2012 at 8:16 pm

The 3D Feel & Find looks like so much fun!

289 The Happy Wife/Danielle Garcia August 6, 2012 at 9:14 pm

I love the Modular Science Center

290 Kristi August 6, 2012 at 10:02 pm

ooohhh… my son loves puzzles and the Twist ‘n Sort puzzle looks like so much fun for him!

291 Jan August 7, 2012 at 7:45 am

Hard to choose a favorite, but the fold-away country kitchen is a great idea for grandmom’s house, and if I win the Magnetos, I will have to buy the curved accessory set. It will really extend the play for the older kids.

292 Barbara August 7, 2012 at 7:46 am

I love the storytelling books on this website!

293 Amber August 7, 2012 at 8:29 am

The Magnetos are definitely the best item on Guidecraft! Love them!

294 Jenny L. August 7, 2012 at 9:05 am

Oh where to start? Magneatos have been on my wishlist for a while now but I also have been wishing for the Block Mates Dinos and just read about Storytelling – Steve Light (Rapunzel would thrill my girls). Amazing company with amazing products! Thanks!!

295 Kelly Beam Brown August 7, 2012 at 9:28 am

I love the Classic White Storage Bench w/Baskets. This would be perfect in my Kindergarten classroom!

296 Phyllis Swinehart August 7, 2012 at 9:28 am

I’ve wanted these magnetos for quite awhile now, wouldn’t it be great to have a set of curved ones also!

297 umair akbar August 7, 2012 at 9:36 am

I like the construction toys at guidecraft! I would love to have the magnetos for the children of my class. I wish I could have’em.

298 Katie B August 7, 2012 at 9:38 am

I love all the construction building toys including the magnetos, in my preschool the students always love to explore and build. They always find ways to create something I have never thought of with there vivid imaginations!

299 Sharon Limbaugh August 7, 2012 at 9:51 am

My preschoolers love playing with magnets. Finally, a set I won’t have to worry about them swallowing!

300 Peggy Newman August 7, 2012 at 9:59 am

I love the Dramatic Hideaway Kitchen. My K-4 classroom is rather small and it would be great to hide away after playtime. This leaves room for over activities.

301 Tracy August 7, 2012 at 11:00 am

I would love a set of Magnetos. I liked the story boxes for home and school. I also have wanted one of those kitchen helper stools for my kids.

302 Jennifer O'Connor August 7, 2012 at 11:41 am

I love that the Magnetos are for 2 years and up! I teach a mixed class consisting of 2 year 9 months to 5 year olds. What a perfect addition this would be in my class to assist in cooperative play. All my kiddos would love it!
Thank you for all these great opportunities to win such great products.

303 Pam C August 7, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Just visited the Guidecraft site. I fell in love with Steve Light and his storytelling box. It’s really a box of gems and excellent for my literacy and music program. Props would be a great addition. These magnets look amazing as well. Not only would this lend to manipulatives and building, but I can certainly use it as a tool for storybuilding as well. Imagine connecting stories with these magnets!!

304 Mandy August 7, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I LOVE the Steve Light Story Boxes! And magneatos! :)

305 Carrie M August 7, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Forget the kids – the Skyscraper Building Set would keep me entertained for hours!

306 Lori C August 7, 2012 at 3:58 pm

I loved the Steve Light Story Boxes. I am always on the lookout for something to extend stories and promote an interest in literacy.

307 Patricia Pasquel August 7, 2012 at 5:17 pm

Hello I love this magnetoes, they will be a great addition to my daycare class, the kids will love them and I can use them to teach some science principals, math, volume etc….

308 Debbi August 7, 2012 at 5:45 pm

I just saw the Construction Truck Sort and Match and this would be a terrific tool for gaining the interest of my 4PSers and keeping them enaged in a super skill building activity. However, I would love to have the set of Magneatos as well! Great developmentally appropriate toy for all of my special needs 3′s and 4′s for sure. Great toy for cooperative play and developing motor and problem solving skills. They would all love it.

309 Alexandra August 7, 2012 at 5:46 pm

Loved the HANSEL & GRETEL by Steve Light. As a librarian, I love using items like these in storytime.

310 Amber Mehner August 7, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I like their science center and could do so much with it

311 Elizabeth August 7, 2012 at 9:23 pm

My preschool class loves the Magnetoes and adding to their collection would be wonderful!

312 Sheri Barron August 7, 2012 at 10:38 pm

The inner child in me liked and wanted everything on the site, but my children would love the food sorting puzzles. am always looking for new and different thing to put in centers and this would be great.

313 Jenny Furlotte August 7, 2012 at 10:46 pm

I just love the wall mounted barn lock box! My daycare kids would love to play with it while working on their fine motor skills as well :)

314 Grace Grant August 7, 2012 at 11:19 pm

LOVE the nest and sort blocks…have always loved those!

But, my kids would LOVE these magnets!

315 Sarah August 8, 2012 at 2:11 am

Checked out the website and I have to say the Magneatos are my favorite. Would love to use these with my preschooler. Thanks!

316 Eliza August 8, 2012 at 8:59 am

I love the storytelling kits. I’ve been wanting to make some up for my
preschoolers–especially for the children who don’t sleep during quiet time. What a great literacy toy!

317 Mary August 8, 2012 at 10:10 am

I love all thier products, one I would love to have is the Color Bright Dramatic play center.

318 Gladys August 8, 2012 at 11:46 am

Guidecraft has too many terrific things. I love the 4-in-1 Flip Tabletop Easel.There are so many thinks you can do with it and best of all it requires no floor space!!!!
I do love the magnets to.

319 Diane August 8, 2012 at 1:18 pm

I love the new storytelling boxes but also the many and varied manipulatives Guidecraft offers. The colors are so bright and being made of wood they’re sure to last forever! Their nesting, stacking or fraction-ed features also offer more than one way to play. All around great items!

320 Traci A August 8, 2012 at 1:37 pm

I am in love with the new Steve Light storytelling boxes and purchased the Rapunzel one. Can’t wait to use it this fall with my pre-k students!

321 Carla August 8, 2012 at 1:50 pm

I love the Magneatos! My son would love to play with them, and with little hands, I am sure they will be easier for him.

322 Nikki August 8, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I homeschool my children and LOVE your blog. It’s so creative! I could see using these magnets for years and years to aid in teaching them. And after browsing their site, I think the early builder set would also be beneficial for our homeschool classroom. My older son has an erector set and the little one always wants to play with it. The early builder set would solve that problem.

323 Jennifer August 8, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Love the Construction Trucks Sort and Match! I think my preschoolers would love this!

324 Katy Emanuel August 8, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Would love to have the step up kitchen helper so it would be easier for my daughter to help in the kitchen

325 Melissa August 8, 2012 at 11:12 pm

I love the Twist ‘N Sort manipulatives. I like the idea that the children have to twist and move the blocks to fit on the toy.

326 Lisa Roylance August 9, 2012 at 12:28 am

I love everything but I would really like the Market loft, what a great way to add extra space to a classroom!

327 deb eklund August 9, 2012 at 12:34 am

I think the Deluxe Art Center is a great addition to a classroom, it allows for higher engagement with art materials and creativity!

328 tennille August 9, 2012 at 1:06 am

I like the rainbow blocks and also the magnetos and and and…..

329 Aamna August 9, 2012 at 7:55 am

I love the kitchen helper stool and their construction toys. I wish I had the kitchen helper stool!

330 Shelby August 9, 2012 at 8:18 am

We love the storytelling boxes….into Rapunzel right now.

331 Michelle August 9, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I really like the idea of the tactile turn n match. I teach 2′s and 3′s, this is a great way for them to use fine motor skills and cognitive thinking skills!

332 Kate August 10, 2012 at 3:24 am

I love the Dramatic Play Center. I think its awesome that you can convert it into whatever store you want (like a market, pet shop, toy store, etc.)

333 Kathy August 10, 2012 at 5:32 am

I really liked the Magneatos and the storyboxes by Steve Light. I am new to teaching preschool and would love to have any of these wonderful items in my classroom!

334 Patty August 10, 2012 at 7:59 am

I love the water blocks. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

335 Jodi Krisher August 10, 2012 at 8:03 am

I love all their wooden block products! And of course the magneatos look like so much fun, our boys would love them!

336 Nicole August 10, 2012 at 8:23 am

I love that the Hide ‘n Seek Shape Sorter is wood and painted with non-toxic paint.

337 Megan August 10, 2012 at 8:29 am

Guidecraft is so impressive! I’d have to say, from reading reviews on several blogs and visiting the Guidecraft website, the Magneatos are hands down a MUST!

338 Jean Brazil August 10, 2012 at 8:30 am

I loved the city blocks!

339 Regina Lasseter August 10, 2012 at 8:43 am

I would love the magnetos! I would also love the see and store dress up center! I hope I win!

340 Ashley Kelly August 10, 2012 at 8:56 am

It’s hard to choose a favorite! The dress up carousel would be fun and oh so useful!!

341 Lauren August 10, 2012 at 9:00 am

Thanks for the great giveaway! I LOVE the interlox, and think my boys would too :0)

342 Catie August 10, 2012 at 9:24 am

343 Roxanne Parks August 10, 2012 at 9:32 am

I love the idea of Magnetos! My 18m & 3yr (and I can tell mommy and daddy) will love these! I have been wanting them FOREVER now.

344 Kirsten August 10, 2012 at 9:56 am

I love the school bus loft! How cool is that?!

345 Jill Lauder August 10, 2012 at 10:42 am

The construction truck sort and match set is super cute!

346 Carly C August 10, 2012 at 10:46 am

I love the fold away country kitchen! That would be perfect since we have very little space!

347 Keara August 10, 2012 at 11:02 am

I love everything at Guidecraft but the Wooden Blocks would be at the top of my wish list. I had a set like that my dad made when I was little and tehy ended up getting lost in one of our moves. I wish I had them for my son.

348 Krystal Schmitz August 10, 2012 at 12:02 pm

My kids would love the puppet theater! They would also really enjoy building with the magneatos!!

349 sabrina August 10, 2012 at 12:23 pm

I would love the Tactile Turn and Match set.
So glad this is offered to Canadians too! Thanks!

350 Kerstin August 10, 2012 at 12:48 pm

I love the idea of Magnetos! But the storage options from guidecraft are all very appealing to me. We love the storytelling boxes as well.

351 Theresa @ Two Much Fun August 10, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I love the deluxe rainbow blocks. There are so many wonderful activities (matching shapes, colors, building, allowing light to pass through, color mixing…) that can be done with them.

352 Terry Yordan August 10, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Magnetos are fabulous. My son had a set and why I gave them away, I’ll never know. Now I teach little ones and they would love them.

353 Cathy August 10, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I’ve given these as a gift, but would love a set!

354 alison August 10, 2012 at 2:43 pm

i like the storytelling products

355 Amelia August 10, 2012 at 4:01 pm

357 Linda August 10, 2012 at 4:39 pm

360 Vickie August 10, 2012 at 9:04 pm

The Magnetos would be my ds 1st choice, but I am loving the deluxe art center! To be that organized….

361 Shea August 10, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I love the Safari Toy Box.

365 Alejandra Beal August 11, 2012 at 3:22 am

I love the construction toys because I see my daughter play with them and try to make forms, from the the magnetos I think is some how different and she will enjoy, also I love the kitchen helper stool as she really like to help me and get her hands in everything I am cooking or washing.

366 C. Green August 11, 2012 at 9:52 am

So hard to pick just one thing that I absolutely love from Guidecraft, but I’m sure my little students would love to get their hands on the construction toys! We don’t have anything like the magneatos in our classroom so that would really be NEATO!

367 Brandi Gandy August 11, 2012 at 10:17 am

I love their tables and puzzles!

368 Jan August 11, 2012 at 11:51 am

I think the light boxes are so cool.
I LOVE, LOVE ALL of the construction toys!!! I think my preschool class spends 5o percent of their day building. The Magneatos would be very wonderful addition to our classroom.

369 Dani Ohlmann August 11, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I love love love the city blocks on Guidecraft. The building possibilities are endless. Seriously considering it for my 3 year old.

370 Krystal August 11, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I love everything on that site! I especially love the step up kitchen helper. My 3 girls LOVE to help when I bake and cook and it would be nice to have a stand so they could reach the counter. :) Thanks for the chance!!

371 Kim Warrington August 11, 2012 at 9:56 pm

I would love an opportunity to have the magneatos in my family child care and preschool. The children I have love to build and I think these would be a perfect addition to my building area!

372 Aimee August 11, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I have actually been looking at the Magneatos. I’m very excited about them and would love to have them for my kiddos.

373 Molly Ross August 11, 2012 at 10:38 pm

I love magnetos and the guidecraft art table and storage set! Who wouldnt with all that storage and space all in 1 place. LOVE IT! I have been trying to order Magnetos through my school purchase order and they have been on back order forever……… I would love to win these for my students.

375 Dru Wallace August 12, 2012 at 12:08 am

I love the magnetos and have been wanting a set. I love the Moon and Start pieces on the guidecraft site, especially the take along cart. Would love to have that and the media carousel for my classroom.

376 Joy August 12, 2012 at 12:17 am

Thanks for the giveaway – these are indeed spectacular toys!
My favorite on the Guidecraft site is the City Blocks, something so classic and endless about the play possibilities!

377 Norma Lynda Cruz August 12, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I enjoyed the Storytelling- Steve Light series…I think kids would enjoying using these to retell the story and/or modify different parts of the story.

378 Angela Coombs August 12, 2012 at 2:48 pm

I love the rainbow blocks !

379 Krystal August 12, 2012 at 5:16 pm

I love the rainbow blocks! I think they’d be great on the light table or in front of the window!
