Buckyballs are Back, but in Cube Form

Remember Buckyballs, the toy made from 216 rare earth magnet spheres? Remember how amazingly fun they are to play with? Well, now you can have that same experience with cubes! The brilliant folks at Zoomdoggle have recently rolled out Buckycubes, the six-sided iteration of everyone’s favorite magnetic timesink.

At first, I was skeptical about Buckyballs being able to make the transition from sphere to cube and still be fun. Wouldn’t having flat faces and edges simply mean that I could do less with my high-powered magnet toy? But then I saw the video below and realized that BuckyCubes would be less likely to misalign or slip off as their spherical cousins are so want to do. I’m sold.
