When it came to childhood obsessions, Silly Putty was probably up there with Furbies, Pogs, and Tamagotchis. You could bounce and stretch and snap that egg-shaped blob of viscoelastic putty all day — or at least until it got fuzzy after one too many trips under the couch.
While your Silly Putty penchant was probably left in the ’90s, there’s a new goo on the scene that’s about to blow your adult mind: the Scientific Magnetic Space Putty. Just like the putty of your past, it can be formed into a ball and ricocheted off walls or folded and popped between your palms. (You probably need that stress-relief now more than your younger self did, anyway.)
But here’s where things get pretty nifty: This intergalactic sludge is infused with teeny, tiny iron particles, so you can use it just like you would any other magnet. It also comes in five different metallic colors, including a gold option that looks just like the elusive gold Silly Putty you yearned for back in the day. It’s basically just like the goop that used to entertain you for hours, only better.
Get your goo on with the Scientific Magnetic Space Putty sooner rather than later, since it’s on sale for a limited time for just $9.99, a savings of 60 percent.
