Klikyballs are awesome for the sheer number of shapes and structures they let you make. The best part when you start using this Bucky ball set is that you begin with no instructions. All you really have to do is let your imagination set its own speed and makes its own turns, and the shapes appear before you gradually.
Made out of industrial grade neodymium magnets, a single Buckyball magnets set has around 216 magnetic balls. The best thing about these is the strong force of attraction, without which magnets are essentially useless. A single Bucky ball magnet can hold and pull all the remaining magnets, which is no small thing.
The thing about using your own imagination to build different structures is that this will help in boosting brain activity. Many people overlook the value of keeping their minds active stimulated and their brains active. Whether in the office or at home, making geometric shapes and such with this magnetic set can de-stress you quickly.
The reason for that is simple: you need to focus on the toy while playing with it, and pretty soon, you are forced to let go of the nagging feeling you’d been holding on to. On the flip side, this also improves the speed with which you can shift focus to an alternate activity, commonly useful as a means to preserve your mental fortitude.
