Why us?
Create awesome magnetic sculptures as you use this Hourglass to time turns at games. Filled with metal filings instead of sand, place it on the magnetic base to see a different magical pattern every time. Take it off the base to use as an ordinary hourglass. It is mesmerising!

Boxed. 12.5cm.

Magnetic Seconds glass
Attractive and quite large. Unless you use the base the filings just run through like sand, if you put it on the base you get a shape. I agree with other reviewers that it is a bit the same each time. Also the name hourglass suggests that it is an effective timer which isn't the case. However it is robust and is a suitable five minute wonder for Christmas morning.

Thank you for your feedback. To use this product as a regular hourglass you would need to take it off the magnetic base. The base is there to create interesting shapes from the metal filings.

Magnetic Hour Glass
Bought as a present for someone who loves magnets! It didn't disappoint. However, from my point of view of buying it, the shape made tends to always look like a curled up hedgehog.

Magnetic Hourglass
I was a bit disappointed how briefly it ran, but my son had great fun twirling it to vary the shape made. Good birthday present for scientifically curious teenager. Only wish it had a few more iron filings so it could run for longer.....

Disappointing.
I returned the two hour glasses I had bought as I had wanted them as presents for two 10 years old. Label indicated glass was dangerous, iron filings were dangerous and I felt the throughput was very fast and dull.

Magnetic hourglass
I bought this for a present. I had a look at it when it arrived and was a bit disappointed that it didn't create sculptures as exciting as I'd hoped. However, the receiver of this present was delighted as were his children. Good fun had by all.

Good service but sculptures underwhelming
Pros: It arrived quickely and seems reasonably well made so it looks fine sat on the desk.
Cons: The "sculpture" is the same, roughly hemispherical blob every time, so not much entertainment value there. The time (~1.5min) is a bit short for anything useful.

This was a nicely packaged item. I was a little disappointed that the magnetic filings only go so far before falling over. I had anticipated creating grand sculptures. Shows what I know about it! However, it is fun to play with and you can manage to create what looks like a volcano effect with it. I know it will be welcomed as a desk toy.

Eye catching!
I know this is a bit gimmicky but, it looks nice and, I can't stop fiddling with it. I even have to say to myself "right, two more turns and that's it". It's very well made and the base, which is copper in colour, though I don't know if it is actually copper but, is quite heavy so, not easy to knock over. It will look good on any executive desk or, on a shelf in a childs room but not too young a child, as it is glass!
