Regular Silly Putty is great and all if all you're looking to do is copy the text of a newspaper onto the putty, pop some putty bubbles, or make a few putty fart noises. But if you're really looking to get into some serious putty play, you're going to want to delve into this magnetic putty.
This magnetic putty, aka 'Thinking Putty', contains tons of tiny iron filings infused within the putty. Plus you get a super-strong Neodymium magnet along with the putty that gives the particles within the putty a magnetic charge.
You can also use the included magnet to do all sorts of different cool stuff with the putty. Stick the magnet on top of the putty and watch the magnetic putty engulf the magnet and completely surround it. Stick the putty next to the magnet and watch the putty roll over and wrap around the magnet. Pull out a small string of the magnetic putty and make it follow around the magnet in your hand, etc.
The magnetic putty comes in a bunch of different colors to choose from, including glow-in-the-dark putty, and you get 3.2 oz of putty that comes in a 4 inch diameter tin (which it sticks to).
There is basically and endless amount of fun you can have with magnetic putty, which we found out first hand while making the magnetic putty video featured below. With over 4,00 different pictures, we made a ton of time-lapses with the magnetic putty, which makes the video below so satisfying to watch.
