Monday Memories: Magnetic Poetry - Brothers Grimm Kit

Do you remember the magnetic poetry fad about a decade ago? I found my old set a few weeks back and stumbled across this set on Amazon where there are dozens of different themed sets still available. My very literate niece and nephew weren't around for the first round of magnetic poetry so I wanted to share it with them. I was happily surprised to see that one themed set is for Magnetic Poetry - Brothers Grimm Kit. And now I am very tempted to add it to my set. 

And this time the tiles live on the door to my garage which is metal. It provides a bigger canvas and doesn't make my fridge look too cluttered. It's really quite fun. And they can just be used while sitting at the kitchen table for a fun hour of activity. It's always fun to see what people come up with using the available words.

Product description:

  • This box contains the magnetic seeds for creating your own darkly sweet tales. Includes words like princess, witch, evil, forest, poison, and apple.
  • CONTAINS - over 200 themed magnetic word tiles in a cute, colorful, giftable 4.75 x 3 inch box. Rearrange the words to write poems, messages to your roommates, or generative esoteric word art masterpieces whose meaning is lost even to you. Magnetic Poetry is both a creative writing aid, and just a really fun and limitless toy. They're not just fridge words, you can write an ode on your commode, an elegy on your doorknob, a haiku on your car hood, or a novelette on your omelette maker.
  • MIX AND MATCH WITH OTHER KITS - Tile height is 0.375 Inches, compatible with nearly all other Magnetic Poetry sets. With dozens of other themed kits, the possibilities are endless. You can mix and match to create custom combinations, and custom gift ideas. Magnet words make a great dorm room accessory, or locker decoration. They're also a perfect gift for poetry lovers, or a gift for writers of any kind, and as a graduation present, you can't go wrong.
  • MADE IN THE USA - Magnetic Poetry sets are made in America, are nontoxic, and comply with all American and international safety guidelines and regulations. Magnetic Poetry is the inventor of the magnetic word tile, and we're still a small US company that takes great pride in every set we make.
