Super Magnetic Putty

Made with micron-sized iron-based particles, this charged-up putty has magnetic powers.

$14.00

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.

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.

this was simply amazing! you would put the magnet inches away from it and with in a few minutes it would "swallow" the magnet. it's kind of hard to get it out, but it does if you pull the putty hard enough. perfect!

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.

Comments about UncommonGoods Super Magnetic Putty:

First, it was difficult to remove magnet from putty after removing putty from container; putty would not respond to magnet - only response was to "eat" the magnet

    Pros

    • Kids love putty, any putty
    • Magnet was fun to play with

    Cons

    • Does not move as fast as anticipated
    • Putty gets everywhere and is hard to clean up
    • Putty is not as soft as imagined

      Comments about UncommonGoods Super Magnetic Putty:

      Bought this for my son for xmas. Just like all kids he loves putty. He also loves making animated videos and had talked extensively about this type of putty before and how great it would be to film it. I had thought the putty would be softer, but it was very hard and not easy to mold. It did "swallow" the magnet eventually, but it took time and in all honesty, it would "swallow" anything it came in contact with regardless of it's magnetism. This putty already found its way into the trash as it kept getting stuck to everything in the house.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Super Magnetic Putty:

      We send it and a few other goodies to potential employees after make them an offer~

      The putty isn;t exactly magnetic. It works more or less like a conductor for the provided magnet. It is still a very fun and unique gift!

      • Interesting and held attention for long time.

      Cons

      • Messy once it adheres to metal object.

      Best Uses

        Comments about UncommonGoods Super Magnetic Putty:

        It held the attention of my small nephews, but once it started becoming magnetic and adhering to small metal objects it became messy to remove. It broke apart and got into fingernails that was hard to remove.
