Endless fun – 4.7mm Neodymium NIB Magnet Spheres with Steel Case - Gold (216-Piece Pack) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- the metal case beats almost all the brand name similar magnet toys. it provides good shielding so your magnets won't affect anything else
- the balls have good uniformity. Unless you measure them with a caliper they're all identical to the naked eye
- the gold shine is ok. It's not gaudy or overly shiny. Someone even used my magnets as jewelry a couple of times.
- Magnet strength is good and on par with brand name magnet balls.
Cons:
- they were a bit lubricated on arrival with some grease. It washed off.
- I did manage to scratch one of the balls. It scratched through normal use so I don't know what to think.
- the case was PINK!
- playing with them is addictive
Other:
They get dirty after playing with them a lot. This is not something I would say is a fault but be aware that you'll need to clean them ever once in a while. Fortunately this is easy.
Bottomline:
It was cheaper than brand name and it came in a metal case that's better than the other magnet ball cases.
