What’s the Attraction?

There’s far more to magnets than meets the refrigerator door! We use magnets all the time without even thinking about it, or being aware of it. Magnets are everywhere, in just about everything that has power and moving parts. That includes everyday items like hair dryers, doorbells, computers, washing machines, dishwashers, phones, microwaves, electric fans, earphones, speakers, cars … everything!

When you discover something awesome, what do you do? Share it with absolutely everyone you know, right? That’s what happened to Shlomo Weitman, who happened to be visiting the US when he saw a toy he thought his children would like. They didn’t like it. They LOVED it! He was so impressed that he eventually began importing Magna-Tiles to Israel so this amazing toy could reach many more kids. Here he is, telling us all about the toys with the pull.
