Description

If you've ever fancied yourself as a bit of an Isambard Kingdom Brunel-type, but just couldn't face the prospect of being caught playing with Sticklebricks, Geomag is definitely for you. This ingenious modular construction system is made up of interconnecting magnetic bars that can be built into complex 3-dimensional models such as cubes, pyramids, and even dodecahedric spheres (and before you ask - no, we don't know what they are either).

The sleek and contemporary "executive" sets are available as 60 or 96 piece sets, and feature a stylish metallic finish in a very fetching and understated shade of blue - a real bonus, as no CEO worth his salt wants to be caught toying with a primary-coloured plaything when he should be using his bin for screwed-up job-application target practice.

coloured Geomag

For those of you who couldn't give a jot what other people think of your hobbies, or just prefer your constructions to be bright and cheery, we also stock the brightly coloured 42-piece box set of Geomag - great for first timers or those wishing to expand their existing system. (Take it from us - there's nothing worse than running out of bits just as your Eiffel Tower's nearing completion). Be warned though, you might start with a small set, but before you know it you'll be craving more!

Geomag also acts as a great stress reliever/executive toy and looks just as cool, cerebral and sophisticated sitting on a post-millennial desk as those Newton's Cradle ball swinging thingies did back in the last century.

Whatever version you choose, Geomag is guaranteed to keep you occupied during those brief lulls in the day (usually between nine and five) and is sure to reignite that childish but edifying compulsion to build, fiddle and play.

    More info
    Each Geomag set is comprised of:
    • Spheres - made from nickel-plated steel and 12.7mm in diameter
    • Plastic bars - 27mm long and 7.4mm in diameter, comprising of two permanent magnets at each end connected by a steel pin
    • Instruction booklet
    Instructions for use:

    Connect a magnetic bar to a sphere - then add more bars and spheres to make two and three dimensional shapes. See booklet for examples.

    Please note:
    • Geomag is not suitable for use by children under 6 years old - sphere and bars are small enough to be swallowed by children and could present a choking hazard.
    • The bars contain strong magnets, so keep away from credit cards, colour televisions, computer monitors, audio and video cassettes and floppy disks.
    • Avoid contact with liquids and keep in a dry place. (Geomag this is, not yourselves. They're made out of metal and don't like the wet.)
    Please note: the 42-piece set is matt coloured. The 60, 96 and 184-piece sets are metallic (colours may vary).
