Sphere Magnets

Spherical magnets, like all other magnets, have a south pole and a north pole on opposite sides of the magnet. Spherical magnets come in a range of sizes. The largest currently available has a diameter of 30mm and a strength of 13kg.

Unlike most other magnets, sphere magnets have a chromium coating instead of nickel. Chromium is necessary because the spherical shape means that a large amount of pressure can be applied to a small area of the surface when attached to, for example, a metal plate. Chrome is more durable than nickel in these situations and therefore provides better protection. Despite the chrome coating, you still need to be careful. Heavy blows and collisions with other magnets WILL damage the sphere magnet despite the chrome coating.

Sphere magnets are usually bought for both play and practical purposes. Combine sphere magnets with rod magnets and you can spend hours building all sorts of creative structures. Please note that sphere magnets are not intended for use by small children. Swallowing the magnets can cause serious damage to internal organs.
On a more practical note, sphere magnets can be used as connectors between toy train cars, for example.

Can children play with magnetic balls?

If there is a risk of your child swallowing a magnet, you should never let them play with ball magnets or any other magnets. If a child swallows two magnets, they can stick together in the child's stomach or intestines and cause damage. This can be very dangerous and children are hospitalised every year as a result. There have been cases abroad where children have died from swallowing magnets.

Can your ball magnets be used for construction play?

Small magnetic balls are sometimes used for construction games, where the aim is to build a small house, car, etc. using magnets. Our ball magnets are not intended for construction play, although they can be used for that. However, you will often choose magnets that are less powerful than the ones we sell.
