Who would think that a bunch of little magnetic balls would keep a boy entertained for hours?
When my son asked for these balls known as Neocube, Buckyballs, or Zen Magnets I thought,
"What a waste of money."
Boy, was I was wrong! We purchased a 216-pack of the 5mm balls from eBay and he has given up t.v. and electronic games to spend hours creating shapes. He even researched sites online that tell all about different things that can be done with them. Google, "neocube tricks" to find ways to make 2-dimensional shapes click together into 3-dimensional shapes - entertaining and educational!
