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.

reclaimed steel, tin, magnet, silicone rubber

Notes
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!

Made with silicone-based inert non-toxic synthetic rubber; contains no latex/wheat compounds. Due to materials used, this is a firmer putty. Putty shipped in cold weather should be brought up to room temperature before manipulating.

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

    Comments about SUPER MAGNETIC PUTTY:

    It's definitely fun, but very slow moving with the included magnet. We happened to have one that was stronger that made it move faster. It has a strange texture, but doesn't leave any residue like some putty does. Very intriguing if magnetism is a thing you're interested in!

          For some reason, I was under the impression that this was magnetic putty. Not putty with metal in it and a magnet included.

                    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.
