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.

Click here to watch the Super Magnetic Putty in action - swallowing its very own magnet! Video is time lapsed, showing 10 minutes compressed into 30 seconds.

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

              It's basically just the same old putty you've been playing with your whole life but then there's the added element of magnetism! I mean, it's pretty cool and it comes with a big magnetic cube. I think it would be better if it came with a bunch of smaller cubes or spheres rather than one huge cube.

                I gave one to each of my grandsons, age 8 and 12. It offered great creative thought and laughs throughout the day as well as causing them to think about where to put it so that it would do something fun overnight.

                      Uncommon goods has made me the coolest aunt, sister, and mom out there. Every page under every catagory has something that intrigues you to check out. The recycled stuff is beyond cool according to my 14 year old niece. I would agree. The jewlery is quirky with a sentimental edge. The stuff for the guys is just as fun......now the product, it is really cool. It came in a great tin can, a generous amount, and something different for the kids to play with for a change. Gotta say, it's nice to see kids having fun without a remote in hand!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Ordered around the holidays!,!, It was the LEAST amount of stress I had over the entire holiday season. Came earlier than expected, and what I was told was on back order was in the box as well! Very pleasant experience from start to finish.

                          I don't 'get' this product. The magnet is very weak. The putty was not responsive. THey toy was not fun or even interesting.

                            It got stuck on my son's shirt and there are no directions in the canister, etc. as to how to get it out. I think it's a neat product, but it needs a few more directions/instructions.
