Magnetic Attractor Putty is an amazing non-Newtonian solid that is practically extraterrestrial. Magnetic Attractor Putty can be stretched and bounced like rubber, shaped and sculpted like clay, and torn and ripped like paper. But why is it called Magnetic Attractor Putty? Magnetic Attractor Putty is made of a special material that is actually magnetic. Grab the SUPER strong magnet that comes included in the tin and watch as the putty and magnet attract to each other. You'll never find a substance quite like the metallic black Magnetic Attractor Putty. It's out of this world!
- 3.2 oz of Magnetic Attractor Putty
- Super strong neodymium iron boron magnet (12mm cube)
- 4" diameter resealable tin
How Does It Work?
Magnetic Attractor Putty is a non-Newtonian solid. This means that while the putty is technically a solid, it exhibits qualities of a liquid as well. Just let your putty sit on a flat surface for a while and you'll see it spread out like a liquid. The magnetic properties of the Magnetic Attractor Putty come from a magnetic material being mixed in with the putty itself. There are millions of tiny micron-sized magnets embedded in the putty to ensure that it will respond to any large magnet.
What Does It Teach?
While fun and completely amazing, Magnetic Attractor Putty is also a unique way to introduce young scientists to those rare materials that defy Newton's Laws of Physics, non-Newtonian solids. Magnetic Attractor Putty is also a great introduction to the world of magnetics.

This product is great. And $4-$5 cheaper than other places online or in stores. It works great. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Not Worth It Review by Katherine
It is stuck to the bottom. It doesn't do what it is supposed to do and it way to expensive. I would not buy it again. The ad definitely oversells it and I regret buying it with all of the money I threw at it.
