Editor's Review

Explore emotions through play with Making Faces and On-the-Go Making Faces. Each of these are magnetic activity toys that allow kids to make a variety of magnetized facial expressions. 

The original Making Faces comes with 34 magnetic pieces. Open the box to see picture examples of different expressions kids can make. Then choose one of the three face boards to build upon. Add hair, mouths, eyes, ears, eyebrows, noses, and even glasses. An adult will need to punch out all of the pieces before the first time you play.

On-the-Go Making Faces comes with 44 magnetic pieces. With this set, kids add faces to the star, starburst, and moon right on the box’s built-in easel. The pieces in this set are a little bit smaller but still include eyes, eyebrows, mouths, noses, flowers, and more.

Should I get it?

There’s no right or wrong way to play with these toys. Kids can get creative and make a face that looks however they want. That might mean a nose piece becomes an ear or a mouth piece becomes an eyebrow. With parent participation, these toys become a tool to talk about feelings and emotions.
