Fun little sphere magnets – Neodymium NIB Magnet Spheres (6mm / 20-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
+ Very strong magnets but quite easy to pull apart due to the spherical shape, but if you have a lot of them it won't be easy as it will increase the magnetic strength
+ I have been playing since receiving them; making a ring is the easiest as they will rotate to the correct polarity, or you can make a square with 1 ball each on the top and bottom and spin it - it will take some time to come to a stop
Cons:
- It is very expensive for a pack of 20 tiny magnets, otherwise I would have bought more
- Bits of uncoated area left dark marks on my fingers and after playing it for sometime it left a smell on my hands, so it is better to wash your hands after handling them
- Closer look at the spheres surface show that they are not totally smooth
Other:
Keep it away from children and electronic devices. I wish they are larger in size so will be easier to handle.
Bottomline:
If you don't mind paying so much for magnetic balls, buying lots of it to make cubes, patterns and shapes will help to kill your time and let your creativity flows.
