      • Magnets should not be illegal. I have a set of the BuckyBall magnets and find them to be a great way to kill some time at work or at home. I understand that children may be...

      • There is no real reason to ban educational products like this. Any child safety concern can be alleviated by warnings and not marketing as a toy for small children.

      • The banning of Bucky Balls and Zen Magnets is absurd. By the logic that magnets cause injuries, you'd have to ban pens, chairs, trampolines, balloons, etc. Get a grip.
