You make objects with the magnets guys!

I’m wondering about these… is each little ball magnetized to where I can pull this apart and piece it back together, or is it like a puzzle where some are negative charged and some positive,etc.
I’m actually really wanting to know because if they are individual balls it would be quite interesting for an experiment.
I have had these for 8 months and I still can’t get them into the original cube no matter how many times I watch the video tutorial. It is imposssibleeee. My advice to purchasers today, enjoy that original cube while you still have it.
These are fun as shit though.
I would say “cheaper on Amazon” - but isn’t Woot technically Amazon too now? How odd.
Edit: Yes, I know, woot is cheaper by $2 – but really, saving $2 doesn’t feel like a woot deal to me.
They are the weaker of the neodymium magnets but for their size they have decent strength. They are N35 grade.
If you’re going to order these, do yourself a favor and order 3. I have a set and I quickly realized that I need THOUSANDS more of them or MY LIFE WILL NEVER BE COMPLETE.
These are unbelievably entertaining.
