Customer Reviews

Not "drawn" to it...I wish this worked a little better than it does. You can mess with it long enough to demonstrate a good magnetic field, but it takes some effort. Plus, little metal shavings have managed to escape the sealed edges and then get stuck to the magnet of course. The seal should definitely be SEALED. I probably wouldn't waste money on this if I could go back - and use instead some youtube videos for the same purpose. I liked the idea of the "hands-on" experience it would give to the kids at our Science EXPO, but it was less than exciting. 3Dont know why...I cant tell you why this is such an entertaining toy but as my 11 year old says "I just cant put it down" It is just a fun to mess with item that requires little thought. After purchasing this I had second thoughts as to wheter my daughter would like it....she opened it, had no idea what it was and tossed it to the side. Later when she went to put her toys p she must have tried it out because she brought it back out and it has pretty much been played (messed)with ever since.Im so glad I bought this! 5Fun Toy Thing and STudy ToolHelps you visualize the magnetic field and stuff. That B field, what what. Right hand rule the metal sheets out of that MF (as in Monday through Friday). 5Good demonstration of magnetic fields and temporary magnetism (in the iron filings).Just don't shake it like an Etch-a-Sketch because the inner surface of the plastic will get scratched up and will become opaque... like an Etch-a-Sketch.To get the iron filings to stick to the magnet, use a twisting motion while gently turning the tube end-over-end, while keeping the magnet from falling out. 5Perfect low budget test gear.I have several strong magnets from disassembling hard drives and was interested in the flux patters they produced. This neat item solved the mystery with out the cost of much more expensive testing gear. I was able to clearly show to my son what the flux lines did, what side of the magnet had stronger lines due to shielding and many other spin off topics. 5Appears to contain poor quality iron filingsI was happy with this at first until I noticed a brownish red power start to appear inside the plastic case. It appears that some of the iron fillings are rusty or poor quality. Other than that, the product seems to work ok. 3Cloudy plastic housingThe plastic container is pretty poor, looks to be made of vinyl plastic instead of actrylic plastic 2The best scientific toy to teach about magnetic fieldsI have had a toy like this for over 20 years and it still fascinates adults and children alike. It is the only magnetic device I have found that shows the 3D magnetic field. It may not be a toy that is played with for long periods of time, but it will be one that is picked up often to just look at and move the magnet around in it. 5Cool concept but smaller than I expectedSmaller that the pictures lead you to believe. The inside gets dirty which is expected but I wonder how long it will last. A bit expensive at 15 dollars. Maybe 7 would be a good buy. 3Five StarsReally cool product. I bought it for my son, but I really enjoy playing with it too. 5
