Best Deals for Black Friday on Magnatiles
At least once a day, a reader emails to ask me about a deal on magnatiles.
Well, at 2 pm EST today (11/22), Amazon is going to have a Lightning Deal on Magnetic Stick N Stack CLASSIC Set 100 magnetic tiles.
You will need to scroll to the right using the grey arrow at the right of the page to see this 2 pm deals. Or you can find it faster by clicking on Categories, then Toys. The Categories link is right on top of that grey arrow on the right of the page.
Now, these are not the original Magnatiles, but I’ve actually been contemplating posting about these for a few weeks, because they get such good reviews.
And frankly, for the price difference, I think one would have to seriously consider this deal.
The lowest ever price on this set on Amazon has been $79.99. (That sure is a lot less than $120 for Magnatiles.) I’m confident the Lightning Deal price will be at least that good — if not even better.
Are these just as good as magnatiles?
Since we own neither these nor Magnatiles, I can’t speak to that personally. But I can tell you that the reviews are glowing on Amazon.
Yes! Having built with both, I cannot tell the difference. I weighed the pros and cons and took a chance and am glad I bought them. My kids 3 and 6 love them. You get more and the cost is less and the quality the same. — Reader Review from November 20, 2013
Also note that if you have a smaller set of Magnatiles and want to expand, all the reviews say that these are fully compatible with Magnatiles.

If you want to score this deal, I recommend bookmarking this page and setting a reminder for yourself at 1:55.
If you’re unfamiliar with Lightning Deals, here’s how it works: Amazon puts certain items on deep, deep discount for a three-hour window. The number of items available at this low price are limited and the best deals do sell out very quickly – often within just a minute of going “live”.
The good news is that you can get on the wait-list and I’ve had pretty good success with making it off the wait-list (i.e. getting to purchase the item in the end).
