Mystery Box #2 Sold Out

Subscribe to newsletter.zenmagnets.com and click on "Labs Team" to be notified of Mystery Box #3.

This a small flat-rate box stuffed with an assortment of goodies from Zen Magnets, Neoballs, Micromagnets, and Speks! Compared to the first, Box #2 has new and updated prototype tools in greater quantities and a wider variety of packaging inclusions. The contents of the box will be worth more than the price purchased individually. Consider this the raffle you can't lose. Even masterminds need some randomness in their lives. You'll get:

 

  • At least $60 worth of magnets: Neoballs, Micromagnets, Zen Magnets or Speks.
  • Potentially Mid-batch and prototype coated magnets.
  • Prototype tools, and unique samples seen by nobody else.
  • Stickers, microfiber cloths, other random schwag.

 

    We can assure you that inside each mystery box there are at least 650 magnets, and 6 other items. And unless you're the 1% that wins a brand new Zen Magnets Mandala Set, something will be wrapped in an out-of-print page of Nintendo Power. Just cuz. Here's a summary of the major odds:

     

    • 52% - Prototype Flag Tool (V42). A near final design multi-use variable thickness magnet manipulation tool, with a poker/lever at one end. Feedback appreciated.
    • 35% - New Conveyor Tool (T13+R15). A new two-part tool to assist in one handed construction from a single chain. This is an early prototype. More about this below. If you end up with this, we beg for your feedback.
    • 25% - Imperfect Mandala Box without accessories. This is the only way to get a handmade Mandala Box without buying a Mandala Set. 
    • 50% - Last Generation Zen Bamboo Box. The ones with solid lids that don't deserve to experience the landfill.
    • 13% - At least 1 set of Zen Magnets. Of 200 boxes, 24 contain one set of Zen Magnets. And 2/200 are brand new Mandala Sets, valued at $289. 
    • 10% - A fresh Neoballs Tesseract in a newly released Multimetal or Rainbow variant. 

     

    Beyond that... it's a mystery! We're going to try our best to surprise you. 

     

     

    This is a chance for you to get your magnet-craving hands on a grab bag of one-of-a-kind magnet spheres and make some really creative sculptures. Maybe you'll be getting a test batch of glowing Neoballs that glow really well, but have a weird dull color to them. You might even get some magnets that aren't spheres! The images above do not show all of the possibilities. 

    Prototype Conveyor

    About 1/3 boxes of trying out an early prototype of the Conveyor Tool. It's a one handed magnet extrusion assistant that allows you to feed magnets from your fingertips. While it's satisfying to loop them forever like rosary beads, the tool is (hopefully) useful for the single chain construction methods needed for most advanced builds. These will work with Zen Magnets or Electroplated Neoballs, but may be too abrasive for Polymer Neoballs.

     

    No two mystery boxes are identical; they're like snowflakes or fraternal twins. So why not buy 2? Or 3?

    Christmas came early!

    The Mysteriously heavy notation parcel description I received once the package had been swiftly sent off following mandatory application of only but 9 fine unicorn hairs to secure the package (The almost questionable weight stated was not a dead give way at all) delivered via owl before finally being presented in front of the entire royal family of every existing dynasty, the top 100 individuals that would be on the Forbes 100 richest persons list but are not because the 100 richest individuals are still alive and only one out of the two pardoned turkeys from each year numbering 12 turkeys and the bloke of which whom is responsible for the delicate deliverance of mail aside; I was very surprised to see that I received a zen magnet Mandala set from the generous team at zen magnets! Thank You so much; the little hand written note was a beautiful personal touch that made the experience a little bit more intimate and such a wonderful surprise xox

    Awesome assortment of goods

    I have bought several of these boxes and each one is unique. I was lucky enough to get one of the mandala sets and one of the mandala incomplete boxes. These really helped bolster my collection of magnets. I hope more of them will be released sometime in the future. Maybe for next Black Friday.

    Zen mystery box V2

    From this mystery set I got a full set of gold , cyan and gun metal neoballs. I also got several instruction booklets and cleaning cloths (a few too many booklets but the cloths are always good to have on hand), as well as some spare white neoballs and several other items. Overall I was very happy and look forward to a third version.
    I should also mention I've bought 3 mystery boxes , one of the first versions and two of the second verions and each and every time I was more than happy with the items I got!

    Great Idea and Execution

    I’m glad I got this box, it filled me and my mom with joy getting it in the mail. Zen magnets were a huge part of my teenage years. I hope you keep inspiring people to play with them and inadvertently learn analytical thinking in the process. Love you, and congrats on the legal battle.
