The Italian kit contains over 450 magnetized Italian words and word fragments, plus a mini dictionary and translation guide.
Each of the international versions of the popular Magnetic Poetry phenomenon was created by native speakers of the respective language, and care was taken to bring out the poetic delights of their mother tongue for native speakers and learners alike.

We have really enjoyed these, and would recommend them to anyone looking for fun ways to supplement/reinforce their Spanish education!
In addition to this fun kit in aiding us with our Spanish, is this incredibly useful (and very inexpensive) book, Easy Spanish Phrase Book: Over 770 Basic Phrases for Everyday Use (Dover Easy Phrase) which we have used almost as frequently as these magnets!
*As an aside, my children have also had fun just playing around artistically with these magnets, one of our (My Little Pony fan) daughters made a Rainbow Dash design using these magnets (see photo :) *
The magnets are small and have the simplified character and pinyin on the white side and the English on the black side. There are lots of words included, which enables you to make sentences. The pronouns, simple verbs, colors and numbers are all included. There are a few omissions like sun, moon and tree but in general the simple, introductory characters are here.
There are some typos in the pinyin accents indicating tone.
The set would be more effective without the pinyin, since it distracts from the characters. The pinyin can be cut off or covered with white correction tape but it would be better if it were left out or included on the back with the English.
Overall, I would recommend this set as another helpful tool for kids who are learning Chinese characters.
