You know those magnets that you had as a kid? The rainbow-colored letters that your mom stuck to the lower portion of the fridge door in order to keep you entertained while she made dinner? Practically every household in America had (or still has!) a pack or three. If you're nostalgic for them — and/or are obsessed with the felt letter-board trend that's all over your Instagram feed — then you might be excited to hear that the classic magnets have finally received a long-overdue makeover.

Introducing: The Magnetic Type Set, which are about to be available in one trendy serif font (with more on the way), and three colors (gold, black, and white). You know, because the ROYGBIV color scheme doesn't necessarily look good in every kitchen.

Pre-order: The Magnetic Type Set, $50 for 160 letters at The Type Set Co.

Each set includes 160 one-inch-tall uppercase letters, numbers, symbols, and punctuation. (So you can write out messages with redacted curse words!) While they're more expensive than the kiddie ones you can get at the grocery store or toy store, these are made of extra-strong plastic to make sure they last. Plus, they're obviously way cuter!

If your fridge isn't magnetic, you can still get in on the fun. The company will also sell magnetic chalkboards and whiteboards to help "satisfy that word nerd itch," as they put it. The company is also launching a typeset kit (a set of straight and curved rulers) to make sure your letters are perfectly aligned and spaced before you 'gram them.

Did you have those rainbow alphabet magnets as a kid? What do you remember about them? Get nostalgic in the comments below!
