What kind of magnets are used in magformers?

Magformers are geometrically shaped building toys made with cylindrical neodymium magnets. These rare earth magnets are specially shaped so they always attract, making them ideal for building. This feature, combined with the Magformers’ open shape, makes them exceptionally easy to manipulate — a perk for younger children in particular.

Is it OK to put a magformer in water?

A. Magformers shouldn’t be immersed in water because they have seams where water could seep in and grow mold. The manufacturer recommends wiping them with a dry towel. If your set needs heavy-duty cleaning, or if a child has been sick recently, consider cleaning them with disinfecting wipes.
