ABOUT MAGNETS AND TOYS
We understand parents may be concerned about buying toys that use magnets. This concern is two-fold: the strength of the magnets and their chemical composition.
Strength of the magnets
Take a look at the chart below comparing the strengths of various kinds of magnets. As you will see, Fractiles magnets are of a different type-flexible iron/resin-than those that have been responsible for health problems-neodymium. In fact, neodymium magnets, which can be dangerous if swallowed, have a magnetism that is over 50 times stronger than our flexible magnetic tiles. No magnet should be ingested, but Fractiles magnets do not have the strength to cause the kind of health problems that neodymium magnets have caused.

Chemical composition of the magnets
The flexible magnet material we use is produced and tested in the USA and passes established toy safety standards for lead and other harmful ingredients.
