What You'll Get
Rediscovering a childhood plaything can lead to nostalgia, guilt, and blackmail from scorned, wire-wearing teddy bears. Avoid future PR nightmares while bolstering your collection with today's Groupon: for $34, you get two sets of Buckyballs in black nickel and gold (a $70 value).
Every set of Buckyballs contains 216 magnetic, BB-sized spheres that shape, mold, and snap away hours otherwise lost to needless productivity. The core of each shiny Buckyball is rich with Neodymium, a rare earth metal with enough magnetic muscle to ably hold multiple sturdy sculptures, patterns, and shapes. This sleek, neo-industrial play-doh makes for inconspicuous cubicle clutter but, like raw meat and prison scrapbooks, should be kept away from children.
Named after famous architect Buckminster Fuller, Buckyballs rekindle middle-school geometry crushes by fusing fun, physics, and fashionability. After refining Buckyballs basics found inside the box, experienced ballers can join the company's Facebook page to partake in contests and view videos and pictures from international Buckyball black belts. AWOL balls can be recouped in troops of 10.
