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, silver, blue, and pink. Hours of fun are guaranteed.

Is This Putty Alive?

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.

Magnetic Thinking Putty has all the characteristics of regular silly putty.

Picks up paperclips and tacks

Holding the included 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.
