What are Speks?

Magnetic Putty without the Mess!

Made from rare earth, neodymium magnets, Speks magnetic balls are possibly the most popular desk toy ever made. Speks are like magnetic putty, a stress ball and adult building blocks all in one. Mash them around for oddly satisfying stress relief or build a shape to unleash creativity. The action used for these is quite similar to squishing Blue Tac or putty. They are not tacky but satisfy the senses in a similar way for most.

We’ve found the colours wear off over time, especially as it’s hard to put these down lol, however it doesn’t affect the function or usability. It appears to wear off quicker with some hands also, due to varying chemical composition of sweat, hand sanitiser, hand and dish washing soaps used also etc.  We recommend getting the silver original ones which don’t if this is a concern. They may however, for same reasons listed above,  leave a blackish residue for some.  This is not a fault and is not covered under warranty.

The Specs.

Speks are made from the rare earth element, neodymium along with some iron and boron. First they’re shaped into mini spheres, then they’re coated with a metal plating or polymer paint, and finally they go through the magnetizer. It’s cool - one minute they’re just ball bearings and the next they’re magnets. Magic.
