What's Hot Bucky Balls
Every year we wonder what is going to be the hot seller this year! This year we have several things but the most unexpected for me (Michael knew it would be big) was Bucky Balls!
216 rare earth magnets, come packaged in a little square about 1 x 1". It's odd that a round magnet has a positive and a negative side.
Don't let appearances fool you.
These are more than just super-strong, neodymium rare-earth magnets. They're an addictive, three-dimensional building toy.
They're a moldable desktop stress reliever. They're one-of-a-kind magnetic jewelry. They're a science experiment waiting to happen, and a portable geometry lab. Each BB-sized magnet can hold the equivalent of eight sheets of paper, and together they add up to an infinite variety of amazing possibilities.
Rolling Stone Magazine has named it the toy of the year.
We've given them to young and old and everyone finds them intreguiging. They are not made for children under 13.
We have them here on our website. Where you can also click on a video and see them in action.
