I got this as a gift for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day because we always joke about having a magnetic attraction. I thought it would be a cute desktop reminder. It's a dud. It does *not* work like it is shown in the video clip. The putty *eventually* moves in the general direction of the magnet, but it's not fast like it's shown in the clip. Just not as fun or as cute as I was hoping.
I bought this for my 14 yo son for Christmas, my daughter saw it & wanted one, so I bought it again. My nephews were over 3 days later & they wanted one. Yes, I bought this 3x for 4 kids. And they still use it!!!!
Got this for the hubs to manage his stress at work. He loves it. #sweepstakes
Such a great way to relieve stress for teens

The putty is hardly magnetic at all and doesn't do anything unless you pull it into very thin strands my nephew was really disappointed
Instant attention was given to this Christmas stocking stuffer.
Doesn't work very well...only a tiny little strand of putty will be small enough to respond to the magnet.
We always get the traditional wedding gifts for each other on our anniversary and we usually include one small silly, or loosely interpreted, gift. The 6th wedding anniversary is iron and magnetic putty, well the description says it's made with iron-based particles. Around the holidays I always get him silly putty for his stocking and he loves it. Magnetic silly putty was anniversary worthy alternative. He loves. It comes in a cool tin box and I guarantee he is playing with it in his office.

My grandson who loves science is enjoying this very much!
This putty has no magnetic qualities in itself as one might think from it's name. It has metal particles with in it that can be attracted by a magnetic field. It does come with a magnet that can temporarily magnetize the metal in the putty to create the pictured effects of the ad. Without the magnetic it is just putty. So if you were going to stick it under a table to hold something, it won't work without the magnet. You could glue the magnet under the table and do the same thing. It is an interesting toy but not a lot of usefulness for a magician. Fun to play with though :)
