Zometool, the 90's classroom culture classic is now available on Neoballs.com.

It's the only product that we've used that's as geometrically expressive as magnetic spheres, and in some aspects even more useful due to their rigid geometry. You can't bounce, crush or bend them like magnet structures, so 'tool' is an apt description.

Red rods connect to the 12 pentagonal sides of a dodecahedron. Yellow rods connect to the 20 triangular sides of an icosahedron. And blue rods connect to the 30 rectangular sides of of a rhombic triacontahedron.
