Identical to // Infamous Zen, but instead // Super duper cute!!!
Squee!! Feeling dainty and need a little less circumference in your spheres? We invite you to enjoy the challenge of little itty bitty teensy weensy micromagnets!
What makes our micros so special? They require a lot more focus, skill and dedication than Neoballs because they’re smaller and more difficult to precisely place. They’re also (somehow) more satisfying to crush after every masterwork is complete!
Sizing in at just 2.5 mm, these precious little guys will quickly become your new baby budsies. We hear that many magnet artists keep them on hand at all times for spontaneous crafting and mashing.
We get it—it is expensive to try enormous builds with standard sized Neoballs magnet spheres, so why not try 1728 half-sized, one-third-priced Micromagnets? Prepare your fingers to take your magnetic magic to the next level. With the obvious exception of size, micromagnets are identical to Zen Magnets in quality and durability, making them the top tier of magnets that enthusiasts are sculpting with.
But what makes Micromagnets the same as our extremely high quality Zen Magnets, you ask? Let’s start with the finish. Every single little baby micromagnet Neoball is lovingly mirror polished so they can play for years and years! The NiCuNi coating on micro Neoballs are as genuine and high quality as Zen Magnets. This means the finish shouldn’t pit or wear with reasonable use. Naturally, just like all Neoballs, the neodymium is extremely high grade and makes for a surprisingly powerful pull between spheres and other metal objects.
The short and short of it is this: Micromagnets are twice the challenge, half the diameter, and a third (!) of the cost of Zen Magnets. As always, responsible play is advised and is for adults and children, even though you really shouldn’t give these to children in the first place. Sharp eyes, clean fingernails and intense focus are strongly recommended for magnet crafting with these micromagnets.

Once you learn not to crush creations with your giant fingers, Micromagnets are undeniably enjoyable. Like other magnet spheres, Micromagnets have unique and inimitable characteristics so valuable in research, teaching, tactile therapy, and art. Creative energy is a flame that can be stoked bigger, or wasted away.
The Magnetic Field Viewer works as a Micromagnet separation tool and also displays the magnetic field of the Micromagnets. The thin film will appear lighter when magnetic field lines are parallel to the film, and darker when magnetic field lines are mostly perpendicular to the surface.
Do NOT use the MFV card for separating full size magnet spheres like Zen Magnets. The green film consists of tiny ferromagnetic oil cells, which will rupture from the pinching pressure of typical magnet spheres. Do not fold or crush the MFV card.
Not susceptible to oxidation, rusting, tarnishing, and moisture erosion, this coating is very strong.
Okay shape and size consistency of magnets. The size variance of these magnets is ± 0.05mm. Currently, this is the tightest tolerance available for this style of magnet.
Suberb shielding to collision, scraping, hitting and dropping. These are the magnets to have if you play rough.
Samson strength against rubbing, wiping, brushing, and kneading. Knead your little heart out! Knead until you can no longer make a fist! Zen Magnets will outlive you.
I gave my adult son a box of micromagnets. They are the best fidget toy! I had originally ordered the cheap Chinese version, but these are so much better. Today, I'm ordering a set of the colored buckyballs for my daughter-in-law.
I recommend these magnets for anyone with ADHD, Autism, or Anxiety. They are a much better fidget toy than any other!
it's a good brain teaser
My beloved ones, you are the best! xoxo
Both products have their pros and cons, but Micromagnets has more pros than cons, and that's why I prefer it. But in truth, I prefer having a mix.
-Relatively stronger. longest Stick of 33 (vs. 26)
-Requires less force to separate
-Somewhat harder to handle
-More variety. Can have geometries that are a mix of large and small.
I use Zen magnets when I want to experiment with a new type of geometry. Once I'm sharp on the details, I'm switching over to the micro magnets
These are a great product but if you have anger issues or if you are impatient you should get the bigger ones. I got mad and slammed them on the ground and surprisingly only 2 or 3 broke. Regardless, I love this version as much as the bigger ones

First of all, i'd like to thank you guys for making such an awesome product. However, i had to reduce the perfect score by 20% as i found out that some magnets that you sent me are slightly deformed(Just a little though). Other than that, this magnet is very fun to learn and sculpt(It really is frustrating at first, i recommend you try the original 5mm magnets first before buying one of these(I havent tried one of those though)). I really recommend this to anyone, especially adults. (bought this on 4 Dec 2017)
Our son is an engineer, and while still in college we purchased a set of these micromagnets to put in his Christmas stocking. He loved them. Now graduated and working, he asked for more of these, this past Christmas. He keeps them on his coffee table to construct, unwind, create, and relax. They are a great source of enjoyment for him, and fun when he has company. They create together. I plan on getting more of these each year for his birthday.
These are the best things ever invented! My kids play with them always! Whenever they’re just around I grab them and play with them too! Something about them is very soothing and satisfying. We love them!!
