This was bought as a gift. The recipient really enjoyed it. It appears to be built well and of good quality.
The pen is well constructed with very strong magnets. They can be slightly difficult to manipulate at first, as they're constantly trying to snap back together end to end. Once I watched a few YouTube videos, I got the hang of it, as well as my husband. The pen writes nicely, but the gel ink can be messy when trying to pull everything apart and build things. The packaging included a detailed picture identifying all of the parts, but didn't have any actual written instructions. This was a bit annoying when trying to get the pen back in the correct order based off of the picture alone. When my husband's pen arrived, one of the magnets had a chip in the outer coating. I was very disappointed with this. Overall, it's a fun and useful gadget. I wish this site offered the other finish as well.
The one shattered magnet made me remove the stylus so the pen refill would fit in the remaining 12 magnets. I guess I could interchange the pen with the stylus if I wanted to use both.

Magnets are very strong and can be changed to do different things. Very good product for a person who needs to keep their hands busy.

My husband loved this pen, he can't stop playing with it. The only negative about this product is that it doesn't come with any examples or what you can do with it. But he has found few videos on the internet so he is set. Totally worth it!

The pen was delivered last week and my Dad did not stop playing with it. I tried it too and it writes really nice, also the stylus is very good quality. I might get one for myself too because I can have it in the office and play without attracting the bosses attention! :) Definitely the most fun pen ever.

This is a great gift idea for those creative engineer-types in your life. It's hard to find a really unique gift for my dad - this was a perfect gift for him!
