You may not be able to purchase the rare earth magnets known as Buckyballs for much longer. They're not banned yet, but the Consumer Product Safety Administration is suing to stop sales of the delightful toys. Here's why: kids, too young to know better, have been eating the delicious-looking magnets, which wreak havoc while passing through the intestinal system by clumping together.
But you're not a child, and you know not to put powerful magnets in your mouth. So why should you miss out on a superlative toy? The solution is clear: it's time to stock up before it's too late. This deal is a heavy discount on both Buckyballs and their criminally underrated cousin the Buckycubes. One of these sets comes with 216 magnets, which is enough to make a cube with six buckyballs to an edge. But that's thinking small—soon you may never be able to buy these again! For instance, if you buy eight sets, you can make a cube with 12 buckyballs to an edge. Just don't give them to toddlers with an oral fixation. And please don't eat them yourself. If you do, you'll regret it, in the same way you'll regret not picking up this deal. [Daily Steals]
