These are a Christmas present for my 6 year old son but just from playing with them I can tell that my 9 and 11 year old daughters are going to love them also. They are a lot of fun and he has been wanting something like this for awhile now, he's played with a friends magnetic blocks before and really enjoyed them.
This is the only set I have so I can't say if they are compatible with other brands or not, I would think that if the magnets are set up in other brands like they are in these then they will work, these have little magnets inside the piece on each corner, that way when attached anyway to another piece the magnets attract each other and stick together and stay in place. The pieces are double sided and different colors I think that's really cool. The set comes with squares,triangles, a larger hexagon piece and magnetic pieces to attach the blocks to the wheels also an instruction/idea book.
I believe these would be great for kids of all ages, they seem well made and are nice and durable. I was easily within seconds able to build a small house and it worked perfect and all held together like it should. I cant wait to give these to my kids I know they are going to have a blast with them.
