    I love using it. I use all the time when I am bored. It is great for people who have to wait a lot because you can use at any time. I think it should be 8 and up because they are really easy to lose, but you can get 10 go on getbuckyballs.com to by just for the lowest [$]0. I was happy that they give you a free case. I think people should get buckyballs and buckycubes.

    I bought this for [$] at a store in Santa Rosa about two weeks ago and found that they are losing color quite dramatically. I purchased the gold BuckyBalls and have now ended up with dirty silver. They scratch easily too, and I'm beginning to experience buyers' remorse with my un-returnable set of 52 "gold" magnetic ball-bearings.

                  These were a gift to my two nephews--in grade school. Had a hard time keeping away from the adults and they really enjoyed these too; the challenge was on to get it back into a cube.
