We usually ship within 24 business hours. Shipping is a flat $5 for all US Domestic orders. Free shipping on orders over $100.

*Unlike Retail Packaging, items in Web Packaging will arrive in a minimally packed hassle-free box. The same magnets and color matched tin are packed in a resealable warning bag, fit snugly into an easy to open box with no exterior designs. The quality of the magnets will be identical to retail packaging.

“Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger.”

-Daft Punk on Nickel Electroplated Neoballs.

Based on physics, they’re actually just as fast as all the rest of our Neoballs, but they’re definitely harder, better and stronger.

In fact, technically, because they’re harder, they’re more resistant to chipping and corrosion, which means they more aptly retain their smooth, shiny, roundness, which reduces the quantity of surface imperfections that - over time - increase friction on a spherical object when it is in motion. So you know what, yeah, they’re faster too. Thanks, Daft Punk.

Nickel is the hardest Electro plating offered on our neodymium magnet balls. It’s really hard. Like beating-a-computer-at-chess hard. Like simply-walking-into-Mordor hard. Like Waka-Flocka-goin’-in-da-paint hard. Not only are Electro-plated magnet spheres by Neoballs harder overall than their Polymer Coated relatives, they offer a much more dramatic shine. So shiny, so chrome. Features a mostly colorless chrome coating that is consistent and dependable, though may corrode slightly over extended periods of time. These neodymium magnetic balls feature our most lustrous shine, strongest strength, and most tolerable tolerance of any magnetic spheres - except our legendary Zen Magnets. While all Electroplated neodymium balls are harder than Coated, they are still susceptible to impacts, being dropped or rough kneading. Nickel tends to be the strongest.

Comes with:

  • 216 Nickel Neoballs (5mm) Magnet Spheres
  • Sliding Metal Case
  • A newfound sense of shiny, neodymium fulfillment

Don't be fooled by generic Chinese neodymium magnets, not all magnets are created equal. Our Zen Magnets are the most precisely sized magnets around, with our Neoballs a close second. We have fought hard to provide the highest quality magnet spheres available! Accept no substitutes.

Nickel Corrosive Resistance

Slightly susceptible to oxidation, rusting, tarnishing, and moisture erosion.


Nickel Geometric Tolerance

Pretty great shape and size consistency of magnets. These magnets feature a variance of ± 0.02mm. The only magnets with a tighter tolerance are Zen Magnets.


Nickel Impact Hardness

Superb shielding to collision, scraping, hitting and dropping. These are the magnets to have if you play rough.


Nickel Abrasive Strength

Very good strength against rubbing, wiping, brushing, and kneading.


Neoballs are premium sculpture rare earth magnets by the Zen Magnets Company. 5mm diameter, n35 grade neodymium, and Nickel Plated Neoballs feature a ± 0.02mm tolerance, meaning they lie flat in a sheet, are more rigid in a frame, and behave more consistently during construction. We are the last American magnet sphere company, and the only one still fighting for the right to sell High Powered magnet sets in the US.

All the balls

I like to make big creations, and this set is great value. The packaging is fun and well done. As always, high quality from Neoballs.

Great product

I saw these and had to have them, I have purchased a total of four of the 216 packs. The magnets are high quality and are great for passing time. I have had mine for almost a year now and they still look great

Great Products, if they arrive.

I've only otherwise purchased Neoballs from the Zenmagnets mystery pack they sold recently. They're great products! Lots of fun! I purchased these as a gift but unfortunately they've yet to arrive. They were shipped by some weird UPS Innovations thing that transfers them to the USPS. idk why they would use this as it takes so much longer. I ordered these two weeks ago and I haven't seen them yet. UPS says that USPS has them, USPS says that UPS still has them. This is a mess that could've been avoided by just shipping with one or the other. I paid $7.00 for shipping. That would've been about the cost of priority mail and it would have been here two days later. So the products I know are great but the shipping sucks.


I bought 4 sets and they work great. Only minor wear at the poles. Used to have bulkyballs and they were completely wore down after only a month of use. These have lasted over six months.

Fun with geometry

What can I say? They're exactly as advertised. Strong, fun, fairly intuitive, and they haven't tried to mangle me yet!


My son found these and had to have them. He’s a high functioning autistic teenager with intense frustration. He is never without them now.

Husband can't put them down

Wish I could afford another two sets so I could play with them too. He really enjoys them...


Love these so much!
