Turn your desktop into a gallery of magnetic masterpieces by building with NanoDots. Like their big brother, these magnetic constructors are perfect for fidgeting or as building blocks that snap together. And with their smaller size, you have the flexibility to build even more intricate designs than before.

The neodymium orbs click together with ease, allowing you to combine simple symmetrical shapes to create complex creations. With enough sets (and a lot of patience!) you can create miniature spaceships, motorcycles, elephants and more.

Devote serious time to constructing elaborate structures or absent-mindedly fidget with them while doing other work. You’ll find your fingers being attracted to this curious plaything again and again.

Playful power

NanoDots are built for building; they combine strength and flexibility for easy construction. You’ll go ga-ga over how well the orbs fit together, and you’ll be thoroughly impressed with how well they can hold together. The pea-sized neodymium spheres are strong enough to lift 1,000 times their own weight and electroplated for added toughness.

Become a magnetic maestro.

Make things

NanoDots are packaged in an intricate diamond shape, signaling from the beginning that these constructors are capable of creating incredible shapes. In fact, NanoDots have spawned an entire online community dedicated to the creation of amazing structures. Dedicated sculptors have made castles, helicopters, and video-game-inspired robots with these little orbs.

While making elaborate sculptures requires time and practice, you’ll have fun constructing simpler shapes right out of the package.

Fidgety fun

It only takes one hand to operate your computer mouse, meaning you have an entire hand free to roam your desktop. NanoDots make use of that extra appendage to satisfy your fidgeting urge. The dots are fun to roll around between your fingers and to join together with a satisfying clack. Use them to keep your free hand busy while your brain attends to more important matters.

Your fingers can’t help themselves.

Two colors

NanoDots are available in both an original silver and black finish.

Both sets contain 216 NanoDots that can be conveniently carried in the included suede pouch. As an added bonus, the top and bottom of the packaging fit together to form a compact canister. Combined with the pouch, it’s an easy and protective way to store your dots until it’s time to make your next masterpiece.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Are these safe?

Answer: NanoDots, like any small magnet, are only dangerous if swallowed. They should absolutely be kept away from small children and never put in anyone’s mouth. For that reason, the recommended age is 14 and up.

Question: How do these compare to other magnetic orbs?

Answer: NanoDots are twice as big as MicroMagnets and three times smaller than Mega NanoDots. Of the three, they are probably the easiest to use for building.
