I purchased two boxes of these blocks to use as a quiet STEM activity for my homeschooled kids to do between lessons or when I am working with a sibling. We received them today and they have been playing with them for over an hour ever since. Some reviews created it seem like kids were limited to what they could build with the eight pieces but my five year old has made a few versions of robots and animals. The magnets are stronger than I expected and have cute but subtle designs that can be used as eyes, body parts or info in creative play. I would buy a couple more sets but they seem to be sold out. Hoping they restock soon!!
Both my toddler and 10-month-old love playing with Tegu blocks and this robot is a beautiful cool addition to their set. The robot is a amazing size and with a lot of various locations to magnetically connect and rearrange the pieces, the robot definitely fuels imagination and allows for some various play than the blocks alone. It is a bit tricky to move the robot so the pieces don't come apart or the magnets connect to a various piece, but I think that's also the beauty of learning how magnets work and how to move the toy gently (and we have had some satisfied accidents when pieces connected unintentionally, creating a cool fresh ver of the robot).I was pleasantly surprised that it came so well-packaged and presented nicely (see pics) with ideas for various ways to place the robot together on the inside of the box.
We gave this as a bonus to our one-year-old grandson. It's a favorite for him, and for the adults as well! Smooth, rounded blocks with magnets that attract and hold, but do not "snap" into place. I was concerned the magnetics might attract hard enough to pinch, but it isn't a problem. More, please!
The box came with the parts all messed up inside. Amazing thing I lifted the lid (the box cover has a lid where it displays the toy underneath) to look before wrapping it. Pain in ... to obtain it straightened out and even then the cardboard packaging inside was messed up so it didn’t keep all parts properly in place. I really wanted this to be the cool additional bonus she liked and it’s presentation is pitiful considering your customer is a child. That said, I got to feel touch the blocks. They’re light which is amazing and bad. Amazing so I don’t obtain clocked in the head by flying magnetic wooden robot leg when she flings it, poor because I question how well it will keep together, unless the magnets are really strong. We’ll see.
The magnets are not powerful enough to keep the pieces together whether lifting the toy or rolling it - they fall apart easily with slight friction and 5 yo hands. Very frustrating for my small one. He does like to combine the pieces from his other sets to do creative building. But compared to building with Legos, this falls short in the department of building combinations/possibilities. Maybe amazing for 1-3 yo, definitely not for older kids.
I like the idea but the magnets need to be stronger. My daughter loved creating the robot, but wanted to lift it or create it fly after it was constructed, and it instantly fell apart. Even lifting it slowly would unlodge all the pieces and it would fall apart.
I hesitated about this due to the price point, but after purchasing it for a 2 year-old, I found it to be worthwhile. It is an ingenious, high quality product. The magnets create this a well-suited bonus meant to hold a toddler occupied on an airplane ride. In fact, the grown-ups had a amazing time playing with it too. I'm tempted to buy a huge set for myself. Well worth it! This is a toy that would latest a long time.
These things are so cool, you can't hold from fiddling with them. I thought more would be better but they aren't needed. This set is enough. I read they were created in Ecuador or someplace similar, to raise cash to support the people living there.If you aren't familiar with these blocks, they are magnetic. Amazing fun.
Unless youve purchased one of the $300+ sets, this set is completely useless. You can barely create anything with this set alone, but the quality is amazing! Magnets can be a small tricky and don't keep up as amazing as you see in the photos, but theyre still fun to play with!
This block set is so neat! It's taking my 2 year old a small time to figure it out, but he's starting to understand that the proper sides must be lined up. The magnetic fields is a cool concept to use with blocks, and the possibilities for creativity are endless!
Lots of fun to play with for both children and adults. Very high quality and worth the price. Only complaint would be that the entire blocks are not magnetic, so there is some limitation on the number of combinations you can create - this can also create it frustrating for the younger kids.
We love these blocks but why this got 4 stars is there doesn't seem to be enough in this size. I'd obtain the larger 42 block size as it has more to do with. But the blocks and magnets themselves are great. We have a toddler and a puppy, so far neither has destroyed them!
These are just okay. They are a neat concept but very over priced and I was really disappointed when my son kept pointing to pictures on the packaging and said create this and I couldn't because the pieces did not stick together like the pictures indicated they would.
It broke after the baby threw it on the floor. It wasnt hit, knocked, or abused in any unconventional way. The baby only started pulling the pieces apart and when he tossed one on the floor it broke in two. I expect better quality with this pricetag.
I bought the 8 piece Tegu set on a whim for our oldest son when he was 1 and while they immediately interested him, they were also a small frustrating because he couldn't figure out that only certain sides will stick to each other since they are magnetic. By 2 he was much more adept at using them and integrated the blocks into all his other play (cars, blocks, trains, etc) so we bought bigger Tegu sets to add to his collection whenever they were on sale (these things are expensive). Now at 3 and a half years old, some of the items he builds with the blocks are downright impressive and you can tell how much they spark his imagination. We also have a 15 month old son now that wars over them. The Tegu blocks really grow with your child and even my wife and I often search ourselves playing with them. I'd say these are the most used toys in our household.
I was hesitant to buy these, since they seemed so pricey for such little toys. I finally bought it to support entertain my 2 year old in restaurants on vacation, and I'm so glad that I did. They are really fun small magnet toys, and they are the excellent size to travel with and to hold in a backpack or diaper bag. I did some research on the company, and the highish price is due to the fact that they actually pay a fair wage and do community building. That's the kind of company I don't mind supporting. This toy will be a huge support on our upcoming plane flight. (It's also been an addictive android game for the grown ups to fiddle with. We might need to buy another set.)
Edited to add: My 3 year old was completely entertained during my 5 year old's soccer game. They both also just play with them randomly at home. I bought these because they were on sale and had amazing reviews. Both of my children (ages 5 and 3) loved them immediately and we will be bringing on long trips or restaurants where they need to be entertained. They are a bit smaller than I expected (I know that I could have read the dimensions first) but my children do love them. I wouldn't have bought them for full price, though. Also love that it comes with the pouch.
This set has exceeded my expectations. I wondered if 8 blocks would be enough to hold anyone entertained but these saves the day on a latest 17 hour vehicle trip. Our 11 month old was fascinated with just two blocks for almost two hours. We place them away and got out the skinny blocks for another segment of the trip and he was entertained and not screaming for another 30 or so minutes.Our other kids also liked them. The 7 year old played with the set for an e blocks themselves are well constructed. They look and feel like solid wood blocks. If you look very closely, you can see a faint seam where the pieces are closed around a magnet. The magnets are powerful enough to stick the blocks together and not fall apart but not so powerful small hands can't intentionally release e envelop in which to shop the blocks is very well constructed and simple to use. The blocks slip in easily and stay inside the envelop inside the diaper e blocks themselves aren't what I anticipated but I like them. Because they are magnetized and magnets have poles, You can't build traditional block type structures with them but they are valuable for other forms of exploration and discovery. If you're looking for a building block, these are not for you. I like ECR4KIDS 64 block set for a really sturdy and high quality building block set.If you're looking for a high impact diaper bag toy that does not create (much) noise, this is a amazing fit.
Kept my three yr old entertained in flight for 30-50 minutes. Will be saving this for future travels so that it stays unique and the novelty doesn't fade. The child makes various arrangements and imagines it to be various things like plane, train, rocket, vehicles etc. Just this one set was sufficient. I was afraid the pieces might not be enough, but they are. The packing is travel friendly.
We bought these for traveling on the plane since they're blocks but magnetic so I was expecting less problems. I will say that we didn't lose any blocks but that was mostly due to me scrambling every time our small guy knocked them down since they're so expensive. They do stick together but my son considered it a challenge he was willing to take on to test and create the blocks separate and fly apart. I think these might be better for a calmer kid than mine. That said, if I just gave him a couple of the pieces he would calmly place them together to see what he could build and when you're on a 5 hour flight, even 30 mins of distraction can be worth it.
Totally worth the price. I bought two sets for my twins for when we travel and a 52 piece set. They’re excellent for small hands and it keeps them busy forever. They love them. Pictures are the two sets I bought. These are method better than other toys and can grow with them. Could even be used for homeschooling for math. Plan to buy more in the near future!
I stinking love these. They entertain my children for hours. I want the larger sets weren't so expensive. Those will have to wait for Christmas. My children search a lot of variations of things to build with just 8 blocks. They use them on the fridge and dishwasher. We have had a amazing time finding other magnetic surfaces. This is a amazing timeless toy.
First off, I HIGHLY DOUBT that this is a grs product, they are known for being high end quality products. This vice while decent is not anywhere close to what I would expect from them. Regardless of what the included paperwork says. With that said the vice is massive and solid. Once I stripped it down and cleaned it, it rotates, locks, tilts in an acceptable manner especially considering the price. The add ons however are not really acceptable at all, the holes in the top are not drilled evenly or deburred well, this causes the pins to either be loose or to bind so tightly that percussive maintenance is needed to remove them. As a fresh hobby engraver I will create due, and obtain the higher quality as my skill progresses.
My ball vise came in GRS packaging with GRS documentation and at this price point could care less if its a knockoff or not because its a quality knockoff other than a bit of fit and finish work required from the end user.Excelent value for this type of vise! As others have mentioned mine came with holes in the jaws for attachments that need a bit of cleanup/deburring for attachments to fit well, but honestly this is a quality item that just needs some finishing and TLC to create it perfect.. Why pay hundreds more for someone else to clean/deburr some machined holes for you? You could buy a precision carbide reamer to smooth the holes out to perfection with a hand drill or drill press and still be method ahead of the android game price wise. This ball vise operates smoothly and is created from quality materials and is comparable to troops costing multiples more once you take care of verry minor problems with it. Consider this a diy item for final fit and finish and you wont be dissapointed. Its rock solid and a amazing value!
After owning a few Marking systems created in USA and Germany I thought I’d test a Chinese alternative... I thought for the price I couldn’t go wrong, I was wrong... after days of trying to obtain assistance over emails from China I finally resorted to watching YouTube videos and found a manual online. took days just to obtain a spark from it... then days to obtain the lens scaled to an acceptable degree of accuracy and I’m still not impressed by the overall mechanical assembly. Yes it was half the cost of a better unit but I just don’t feel it will latest very long as it started off weaker than my other machines. And beyond that the shipping company sent me a bill for the fresh tariffs It looks like it may cost me another 25% in taxes that they say I’m responsible for:(
As mentioned in other reviews, it comes with a true coat of grease. Since it has come from India, that seems entirely appropriate.I was cautious about getting a less expensive engraving vise, but I am very satisfied with this one. Everything I see is better quality than you might expect for a vise that is 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of a lot of others, but I am quite satisfied with it. It really IS fifteen pounds!I was not sure if I required the accessories, but I am very satisfied I purchased the one WITH the accessories.If I ever have the need for a second one, I'll obtain one of these.WARNING added a bit later:BE SURE you unpack this next to your trash barrel. As quick as you have any given box empty, place it in your trash barrel and then spray it once you are done. I got several "hitch hikers" (BUGS) in the packaging. I hope I killed them all.
This is a poorly manufactured replica of a GRS product. Info is not accurate. It was mailed fom China - but info states "Made in USA". Even the www services printed on paperwork are for the REAL n't waste your money. Sending back ASAP.
After reading the reviews I decided to grab one and was pleasantly surprised how amazing it actually is. It came with some light surface rust on the top vise, a small wd40 and a scotch bright pad took it off. You will need to clean and oil it up, lube the center bolt. Create sure the rotation break bolt is backed out if you wish it to turn. Overall knowing it’s a GRS knockoff for the price I think it was a amazing purchase for starting engraving compared to the name brand ball vise of the same size. With a small tlc it is completely functional.
surprisingly amazing ball vise I plan to use for engraving.I would rate this as a very amazing value comparable to the troops costing $400 - $500.I've received this ball vise from the company dbm-inc covered in a light coating of oil, that only took 60 seconds or so to wipe e vise was well packed and I am glad it had the protective oil coating so surface rust didn't form while it was on the distributor's shelf. It arrived 5 days after ordering. I'm on the west coast, faster than what was ere is a rubber help ring that the ball vise sits in, which is dry, not lubricated, so that it keeps the ball vise from rotating or moving. The top half of the ball vise rotates easily or can be locked as one chooses by a locking nut on the side of the ball e top half rotation is very smooth, almost like it's rotating on ball bearings, but I don't know this for sure, it's just my description of how smooth the rotation is. I did have to unscrew the rotation lock nut a couple of additional turns to let the top third of the vise to rotate 360 degrees e keep down / pin accessory kit seems like it will work but some of the parts appear to be chrome plated and I worry that the plating might come off. This should not be a deturent for me as I see the value in the ball vise and in the worse case scenario I can create my own keep down pins and is why I rate this vise 5 stars. Again this is just my observation of the keep downs, not from long time use.UPDATE: the vise does have ball bearings in it for the top half to rotate. I took the 'locking' nut all the method out and the top half of the ball vise can then be removed. One does not need to replace the grease, but I did just because I had some waterproof grease for my bicycle at hand.
THE ACCESSORIES ARE TO BIG TO FIT HOLES IN ENGRAVING BLOCK. I NEEDED TO BUY $ 13.00 SET OF METRIC COBALT DRILL BITS TO DRILL OUT HOLES 1/3 MM BIGGER . STILL GREAT VALUE. I WOULD ORDER AGAIN.
Theirs a reason why it's cheaper and that's because it's cheaply made. Arrived in 1 day, packed well. Knew right away this wasn't for precision work. Holes to keep attachments were rusted, I thought ok I can clean that up. Tried the screw in holders and they just grabbed and wouldn't go any further I knew if I used the allen wrench either the screw or the hole threads would strip. I then tried the other accessories, they didn't fit well and wobbled method too much, the jaws also wobbled. It did spin ok but when adjusting the brake it would not keep and kept loosening up. Might be a amazing buy if your just messing around but for precision work it just doesn't chop it. I'm sending it back tomorrow and will spend the cash for a professional block, you obtain what you pay for.
This vise is very economical and does the job. I use it to set stones in bezels. What I found is that it is not machined to tight tolerances. The two main attachments on the table are over a millimeter various in height. I used tape on the back to level them out. Item arrived with some rust spots. Note the box says These are knock-offs. They are not created by GRS. is the correct website, but you will pay over $600 for a related product.
As others have said, its a not good quality product, looks like it was created by children with no skillplating is minimal, it is not concentric, the clamp screw is bent. the rotation screw is defectivestill, I can correct most of this with a small lathe time
The android game would be better if it didn't lag. If your playing it and you move a little bit. It throws your small magnet block across the board and you can't do anything because it's difficult to control. If you changed the sensitivity of the movements it would be a much better game.
