Crazy Aaron's Tidal Wave, Super Magnetic 4 inch tin
In search of the perfect wave?
Try an electromagnetic one. Just like the ocean’s tidal forces, electromagnetic forces are incredibly powerful and awe-inspiring.
Created to mimic the effect of a giant swell, Tidal Wave Thinking Putty comes with a powerful magnet to help you create incredible effects.
Charge the putty with the magnet and watch as the iridescent blue crest moves toward it in an invisible magnetic field.
You’ll even see ripples on the surface just like the sea.
- Memory Effect
- Soft Texture
2013 WINNER of ASTRA's BEST TOYS FOR KIDS!
Comes with one super strong large ceramic magnet in the tin.
When a strong magnet is held close to Tidal Wave, you probably won't feel anything at first. Fear not. Close your eyes and count to five. Pop! WOW! This is strong stuff. The strength will continue to increase as the magnetic field expands throughout the entire piece of putty over time.
Once Tidal Wave is charged by a magnet, you can flip it backwards to feel it actively repel the magnet. Hold it in place against the repulsion and count to five. Pop! The magnetic poles of the Thinking Putty flip again and it morphs from repulsion to attraction.
What can Tidal Wave do? Here are just some of the many tricks you can do using Tidal Wave Super Magnetic Thinking Putty:
Attract a magnet or other pieces of Tidal Wave.
Repel a magnet and then attract it back again.
Pick up lightweight metal objects.
Lock a tendril in space against gravity.
Reveal the shape of the field lines emanating from a permanent magnet.
Move, roll, and lift a magnet from a distance.
Melt around a magnet and the putty will actually lift it off the table.
Can Tidal Wave pick up tacks and paperclips?
Yes. After Tidal Wave is charged by your super strong magnet, it will lift paperclips, tacks, and other lightweight ferrous materials. It can even magnetize small metal objects on its own.
Is it really that awesome?
Oh yes! The magnetic field is STRONG and you'll notice when you have putty in one hand and a strong magnet in the other. Remember that fascination you had with magnetic fields when you were a kid? Well, with Tidal Wave, that fascination will be back in a big way! I guarantee it.

Are bigger magnets better?
The stronger the magnet, the more powerful an effect you'll feel from Tidal Wave. The magnets we sell are the same magnets shown in our new video. They are very strong and, in our opinion, represent a nice balance between strength and safety.
However, if you feel like you can mind your fingers and your tender flesh, you can purchase even stronger magnets on your own. Be careful! Keep in mind that stronger third party magnets are NOT for children and are NOT toys.
