I'm Drawn to You

Made with micron-sized iron-based particles distributed throughout, the astonishing moldable magnetic putty takes on the properties of a magnet itself when placed in close contact with the included Neodymium Iron Boron magnet.

Put it near the magnet and within five seconds, the putty will stretch itself out to reach the magnet almost as if it were alive. Press the magnet into it and the whole piece of putty becomes magnetic, able to lift tacks and paperclips on its own after charging in a magnetic field.

It's perfect for science-loving kids, or for any adult that loves intelligent play! Use the magnet to do the "snake charmer" trick. Or leave the magnet on your ball of putty and watch it engulf that magnet in about an hour! What can you do with it? The possibilities are endless! Made in Pennsylvania.

Please note: At first, the putty is not magnetically charged. To activate, use the included magnet to align the putty's magnetic forces. Hold the magnet to the putty for 5 seconds. Once it's charged, watch your putty be attracted to or be repelled from the magnet!

Please note: putty takes a little playing with to warm and soften. May feel tough to start.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Super Magnetic Putty:

    When I purchased this a few years ago the magnet was a smaller, silver-colered rare earth type. If placed in close proximity to the putty, it would slide over and attach itself to the putty. The magnet it now comes with is a larger, plain magnet that's too heavy to slide across any surface, so the only entertaining value is watching the magnet disappear into the putty. I'm a little disappointed. I might buy another, smaller magnet and discard the one that came with this batch.

      My partner, for whom I purchased this, has always liked this goopy stuff and always wanted some. They were extremely happy to have some and spent the whole first day they got it playing around with it. Really fascinating for the scientifically-minded, and probably even for the not-so-much.

          I got this for my son for Christmas. The box was ripped into pieces. I taped it back together and gave it to him anyways. There was putty and a magnet, the only thing that worked was the magnet and not very well. Very disappointed.

              Have to admit that watching the putty swallow the magnet is a bit creepy, but it really is amazing!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The package arrived during a thunderstorm. Box was completely soaked and falling apart by the time I could retrieve it. I was expecting all the contents to be ruined, but it was packaged so well that everything was in perfect condition. Great surprise!

              My 14 year old son enjoyed playing with this. He likes tactile and magnetic things. The putty can become very stringy when pulled apart (which is cool), but some dropped on his shirt and it wouldn't come out. Overall, he has enjoyed using it.

              My dad likes weird stuff, so I couldn't resist this magnetic putty. I have no idea about the uses, but he refurbishes old pocket knives, so I thought maybe he could use it to pick up tiny pins that sometimes get lost.
