WHY ARE SOME HOLES DIFFERENT SIZES?
Because wood is a natural material, the hole sizes may vary. It is normal for wood to expand and contract over time and in different temperatures.
If the connector part seems too tight in the wooden hole, wiggle it around to loosen it up.
IT'S HARD TO REMOVE THE CONNECTOR PIECE FROM THE WOOD BLOCK
WILL THE MAGNETS DAMAGE SMALL
In most cases, the magnets in Smarty Parts should not be harmful to personal electronic devices, such as iPhones and iPads. However, we do not recommend leaving the magnet pieces siting directly on top of personal electronic devices for an extended period of time.
TIPS & TRICKS
PLEASE NOTE, FOR SOME BUILDS, THE CONNECTORS SHOULD ONLY FIT HALFWAY INTO THE HOLE. THIS DESIGN WAS INTENTIONAL AS WE LEARNED THAT A SHORTER CONNECTOR WAS TOO DIFFICULT FOR A YOUNG CHILD TO REMOVE
