These magnets are great! They will jump out of your hand and smack together and could chip the nickel plating so be careful with them if you want them to stay pretty. Strong enough to damage CRT monitors and other electronics. Not recommended (by me) for children without supervision. Perfect for picking up metal objects, perhaps too much for sticking pictures to the fridge. Will hold up a 12 month calendar with no problems.

You can do crazy stuff with a little imagination. Don't do the "magnetic ear ring" thing with these because you won't do it twice. Take a fool's advice and trust me on this one.

I bought these to use as fancy fridge magnets and they look great. As a science teacher I've bought Magcraft magnets before, but these ones are mega strong!

They are separated in the package by plastic spacers - I removed one only to have the next magnet slam into the next with tremendous force, jamming the edge of my finger and giving me a blood blister! Their holding power is astonishing and they are very hard to get apart (slide and rotate apart).

One warning, these are sintered magnets which means they are made of finely sintered metal with a metal coating - they are not solid metal! My sister in law accidentally had one smash into the other and they both split in half with the force of the attraction. Not a toy!

I bought these magnets to use as refrigerator magnets, since most refrigerator magnets are so weak, they fall off if you try to hold down 2 or 3 pieces of paper. These magnets are so strong, they can probably hold more then 10 pieces of paper! They are so strong, that sometimes you have to slide the magnet to the edge of the fridge to get it off. I have heard that these are fragile, but I haven't dropped mine, so I can't comment. I have rubbed these magnets on screwdrivers to magnetize the tip to hold a screw. Works great for that as well. Highly recommend these magnets!!! Only $1.50 each, what a deal!

These magnets come with a counter-sunk hole in the center of them. This hole, ostensibly, is there to allow a flat surface if one mounts the magnet with a screw.

However, the polarities of the magnets relative to the directionality of the counter-sunk hole are all the same. In other words if you connected them all together, each of the sinks would be facing the same way. The reason this is bad is because you cannot connect two devices together with these screws and use a flat surface.

Completely ruined my project idea!

Like I said, the magnets do what magnets are supposed to do. Be careful not to get them stuck together though. It can be tough pulling them apart. My only knock on them is that the outer layer peels off after a few weeks of use. I have a child proof magnetic lock on one of my kitchen cabinets so my toddler cannot get into it. I'm not using these magnets for anything extreme.

These little magnets are incredible. They are like little black holes that suck anything metal towards them. I put one of them on the end of a small dowel. I use it to remove nails from the ashes in my woodstove. Some of the wood I burn has nails in it, and it was always such a pain to sort them out of the ashes. If you have need of small magnets these things are great!

real fun! May be a bit too strong for the fridge but with many other use. Kids below 10 will have troubles separating the magnets and will pinch their finger playing with them. Unfortunately they are quite fragile and can crack hitting each other or falling.

Fantastic magnets and strong. I bought them for an art project. My friend used them in his jeep to hold up his ceiling panel. He super glued opposing magnets to the ceiling of the jeep, and then to the panel. The magnets are really strong.

These neodymium magnets are great, not only strong- have a tapped hole in the middle.. They are perfect for a 1/8 inch screw for mounting without the head of the screw getting in the way..

These magnets are very very very powerful. Unbelievably strong. I would get the smaller size next time for attaching things to refrigerators or bulletin boards.
