Here are 10 reasons you absolutely need Speks in your life:


1. They’re high-quality & innovative.

They’re so much more than the cheap, flimsy fidget spinners. Speks are made of neodymium rare earth magnets and they’re also rust & tarnish-resistant so you can be sure they’ll last a lifetime.


2. They’re challenging (…and way more than you expect).

I’m someone who loves a challenge and these are surprisingly just that and then some! 🙌🏻 I actually wasn’t expecting Speks to be so difficult to work with right out of the box, but it makes them that much more satisfying to play with.

Plus, once you master different shapes, you can feel pretty accomplished too. 😏


3. The possibilities are endless.

I’m still trying to master the beginner’s creations you can make with these tiny, fun magnets so I know I won’t be growing tired of them any time soon. 😂

That said, there are tons of videos online for inspiration and every package will come with a mini beginners pamphlet of ideas. The fun is never-ending!


4. They’re travel-friendly.

Each set of Speks comes with its own mini clear case and takes up minimal space so regardless of how you’re getting from point A to B, they’re super travel-friendly.

Whether you’re back to taking the subway for work or headed for a long road trip over the holidays, these can go with you anywhere.


5. They’re downright fun!

Even if you’re not strategically planning the perfect structure every time you get these out, Speks are equally just as much fun to roll around in your hand by themselves! They feel really cool between your fingers and never fall apart given their obviously strong magnetic pull.


6. They’re fun, yet still professional.

Unlike most other fidget-type toys, Speks actually look great on your desk and since they take up minimal space, you’ll be able to put them just about anywhere. While they’re sleek on their own, the clear case takes this modern adult toy to the next level.


7. Speks come in every color to fit every personality.

From multi-colored rainbow to solid matte lime green to everything in between, there’s a color to perfectly match your personality. Speks Magnetic Balls come in 19 different multi-colored combinations and 21 different solid colors.

8. Speks can even be washed to keep them sanitary.

Simply use a little soap and water and run them under the sink if they get dirty or they could use a refresh. Once they’re dry, mold them back in their clear case and they’re ready to go for next time.


9. They make great gifts too.

Know someone who needs this in their life? It’ll be perfect for their desk, on the go, or at home since these make a great unexpected gift for any adult! Plus, they’re affordable enough to gift around if you’re shopping for your whole office or your kiddo’s favorite teachers at school.


10. They’re fashionable too!

Okay, so I’m sorta kidding on this one, 🤣 but when my Hip sidekick said he was thinking about taking these on his next date, I couldn’t help but think how funny it’d be to wear them as jewelry and take them off during a date and start playing with them.😂

Fashionable & functional. ✅

Turns out, they really do make a great necklace and the magnetics are strong enough they actually stay on. 😏  Who’s ready for date night now?! 🙋🏼‍♀️

Here’s what others have said about their Speks:

magnetic balls on wood table in different shapes

“Speks are a great way to focus your attention or fidget while working. The texture is like a metallic, magnetic putty when you squish them and is so cool! Initially, a set seems small, but once you start playing with them, there is plenty to have fun. They even hold your attention for longer than you expect! They require some focus and patience for more intricate patterns, but are definitely a good distraction from stress or anxiety!” – Tiffanie


“I’m obsessed with these magnets! I was disappointed at first due to the super small size but they’ve worked out to be so much fun and everyone that I supervise comes in and enjoys playing with them too. They are also super helpful for long meetings and training. They retain their color and don’t leave your hands smelling like metallic.” – Dorothy


Disclaimer: Speks Magnetic Balls are for adults only and should never be used by children of any age. Do not put near or in nose or mouth. Swallowed magnets can pinch and stick together across intestines causing serious injury or death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnets are swallowed or ingested.

    These are incredibly dangerous for children. If you have children or ever have children come visit you then please please please stay far away from these.

    • Alena

      Please do not buy if you have kids.

    • Jackie

      Or Pets! Dogs love these and they will eat them and need surgery to be able to remove them. Be careful!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the warning, Janet! We have that listed in the disclaimer in the bottom of the post.

    • Nancy

      Has this item been tested for the presence of lead, cadmium and other toxic components? If so, what were the results? If not, why not?

  4. Jenny

    I don’t see the $29.95 original price anywhere. 🙁

    My daughter (8) got some of these from a friends. I find clusters of them randomly laying all over my house, which is rather annoying. My husband is an engineer and loves them though. I think he has them more often than my 3 kids do. So, for me it’s a love/hate relationship! My youngest is 6 and we don’t have a dog so we haven’t worried about them being ingested.

  6. Jessie

    I bought these for my 2 teen girls for Christmas last year and they love them! They’re still using them. I’m going to get them each another set this year.

    • Sara (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome, Jessie! We just updated the post to give you 20% OFF! Happy shopping. 🙂

  7. Joan

    I have to chime in here!! I totally regret buying these for my daughter, age 11. She loved playing with them but here is the bummer: They easily blow all over the place if you accidentally blow on them or the slightest bit of wind is around. Then, some of them fly all over and some go missing and this leads me to worry she may have accidentally gotten them in her mouth and/or nose. So, when this has happened we count them and then realize some are missing and the we spend an hour looking for the missing ones in the carpet and all over her room. Some are still missing to this day and I’m still worried they might be stuck in her nose, ears, etc forever and ever and they may cause health issues in the future. I’m not sure if I’m explaining this well but the moral is “better to be safe than sorry”. There are safer sensory toys on the market to get instead of this one. I wouldn’t recommend this for kids or adults! This is a very dangerous toy. I love you Hip2Save but this is just my personal opinion.

    • Sara (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Joan! Thanks for sharing your thoughtful feedback with us. Are you sure you owned Speks brand? If so and they fall apart or “blow” around I would suggest reaching out to the company regarding this. None of mine “blow” anywhere even if I put a fan on the cluster as the magnets are very strong. As I did mention in the post though, Speks are for adults only and are very tiny, so I would never recommend them for kiddos. I hope this helps!

      • Joan

        I don’t know what brand we have but they look just like yours in the photo. We got ours on Amazon too. I guess I could go back and figure out which brand it was. Sounds like yours might be heavier and not so flimsy. I just know that if you blow on ours as if they are birthday candles they blow all over the place and some of those little balls always go missing. My daughter wasn’t happy but I took hers away from her. I got her a package of sensory toys on Amazon that are much safer and she is happily enjoying them and I am sighing with relief. Please be careful with these! All you hip2save staffers are awesome and I wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to any of you.

  8. Jess

    Oh my goodness, you couldn’t pay me enough money to have these in my house. Any risk to kill a person, child, or animal, hard pass. I’m honestly surprised these would even be suggested.

  9. Jess

    I’m surprised Hip2Save’s legal team would be ok with a product like this. Seems risky!

  10. Sara

    These are cheaper on Amazon at regular price then with your code

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Sara! I’m not seeing the Speks branded ones? Do you have a link?
