I came across all these photos of the oh-so-colorful magnetic tiles in the window and had to share. This is from when the set of 100 Picasso Tiles I ordered had just arrived to supplement our set of 48 Building Brilliance Magnetic Shapes from Discount School Supply from Discount School Supply and we were perhaps a bit giddy with the abundance of colorful magnetic shapes to play with.
(Also, Daphne was home sick that week and had lots of time to build and putter quietly with them.)
This is mostly gratuitous photo sharing.

As you can see our new Picasso Tiles play well with the more seasoned Building Brilliance Magnetic Shapes.
The two brands are slightly different. The Picasso Tiles are cheaper (I paid $69 for the set of 100 but the price is now up to $84.99 on Amazon—weird); the set from Discount School Supply is a bit sturdier (and priced at $49.99 for a set of 48 or $99.99 for a set of 100 pieces). Both seem to work equally well so far. There is also some variation in the tile shapes and sizes presented, but not a lot. The biggest difference seems to be that the set of Picasso Tiles comes with four extra large tiles which can be nice for building big. And that the magnets go all around the Building Brilliance set.
