Strange Attractor Magnetic Thinking Putty
Thinking putty with mind-blowing magnetic properties
Magnetic Thinking Putty takes regular "silly" putty and turns its awesomeness up to 11. Like any other putty, it can be stretched, bounced, molded, popped, and torn. However, when this putty is in the presence of a magnetic field, it exhibits fascinating properties.
Millions of tiny micron-sized magnets are embedded in each handful of Magnetic Thinking Putty. Use the included super-strong ceramic magnet to control the putty like a snake charmer. Or "charge" the blob of putty so it can become a magnet of its own and pick up small tacks and paperclips.
Ages 8+. Available in black with green flecks or silver with dark streaks. Hours of fun are guaranteed.

Notes on this video:
- The manufacturer has changed the magnet from neodymium to ceramic. This new magnet is just as strong and performs the same as the original neodymium.
Control the putty like a snake charmer
Magnetic Thinking Putty is infused with millions of micron-sized (one-millionth of a meter) magnetic particles. These particles are what give Magnetic Thinking Putty its strange attraction properties.
Use the included magnet to pull tendrils of the putty in all directions. It's crazy fun!
In absence of magnets, behaves like any other type of putty
While Magnetic Thinking Putty is a more highly evolved form of regular putty, it can still do all of the "normal" things that you love about putty. Namely, you can bounce it, stretch it, and tear it -- all of which are loads of fun.
Picks up paperclips and tacks
Holding the included ceramic magnet next to the Magnetic Thinking Putty will cause the putty to become magnetically charged. You can then pick up magnetized objects or even magnetize non-magnetic items. It's pretty darned cool.
Magnetic Thinking Putty has a mind of its own!
Playing with magnets is just plain fun. Objects seem to "jump" or snap on their own. But it's the slow-moving nature of Magnetic Thinking Putty, combined with its magnetism, that creates a horror movie-esque quality. It's just plain freaky.
Place a large clump of Magnetic Thinking Putty next to the included ceramic magnet and it will slowly encase the entire magnet. In fact, the putty will literally lift the magnet off the table as if devouring it. AWE-SOME!
Note: Retrieving the "eaten" magnet is fairly easy. Just dig around inside the putty and pull it out.
Don't try this at home...without safety goggles.
Yes, you can smash Magnetic Thinking Putty into dozens of pieces with a hammer. Awesome!
How does this work? Essentially, the putty behaves like different materials when force is applied at different time intervals.
Over long time intervals, it acts somewhat like a liquid (spreading slowly). Over medium time intervals, it stretches. Over quick time intervals, you can tear it. And when pounded with a hammer, it acts like a solid and shatters. In a large clean area, you can collect all of the pieces and continue to use the putty as if nothing happened. It's crazy awesome.
However, you should wear safety goggles and thick clothing. The pieces of putty will fly at extremely fast speeds and could knock your eye out. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Kills boredom, magnet included
Magnetic Thinking Putty is a stretchable, bounceable, moldable, tearable, magnetic, and all-around fascinating toy.
But, it wouldn't be a great gift if it wasn't ready-to-go right out of the box. That's why each order of Magnetic Thinking Putty is packaged inside a metal tin along with a super-strong ceramic magnet. So, now it's time for you to buy, buy, buy!
Choose from two styles!
This super magnetic putty can be purchased in either black or silver. As always, we recommend that you purchase both. You don't want to make one color feel left out, do you? Of course not!
