BuckBallys are tiny rare earth magnets, a set of 216 to be exact, which can be arranged and rearranged into a variety of fun, trippy shapes.
In honor of this year’s Father’s Day, the folks at Zoomdoggle are offering BBG readers a chance to win a free set of BuckyBalls (I actually gave my Dad something similar last year).
To win, just write into the comments or email me steven AT boingboing DOT net.
One catch: It is not first-come first serve. You must either send in your favorite Buckminster Fuller quote (if you don’t have one, then find one). OR, tell us your most awesome and/or horrifying story that somehow involves magnets (someone erased your bootlegged copy of Jedi, etc.)
We have FIVE sets to give away. Good luck! Update: Contest is CLOSED. I’ll be sorting through the submissions and getting back to the winners early next week. Have a great Father’s Day, everyone! If you post a comment after 1:45pm PST June 19, 2009, it will read, but will not count towards the contest, FYI.
