Last time I ordered these, they came in a metal box. I think the product picture had a box back then, but months later I came back to order some more because I love these but they didn't come in a box.
That's fine really, they came in an air-tight packet with a lot of bubble wrap. These set of magnets feel different and tougher than the previous ones I brought.
I lost 2 of the previous 216magnets, but those came with 3 extra (mistake I think?) I was kinda hoping for 2 extra with this batch atleast, but they come in air-tight boxes now.
As long as you have a place to store them, this is no problem.
I know use these magnets to relieve stress by pulling on them.
Also, zc34's 1 star rating is a testament to how strong these magnets are.
My 2year old brother hasn't swallowed these, and never tries to eat anything but food.
