Buckyballs are more to me than just entertaining magnets. I have a disorder called trichotillomania, which simply means I compulsively pull out my hair. Buckyballs help me, because my hands can stay busy with them in a multitude of ways. My math teacher two years ago gave me her set, in hopes of helping me with my trich; they help so much. Yes, if swallowed they can be very dangerous, but so can tons of other things; that's why, as it is clearly stated, they are not meant for children. Not only can I move them around and just keep my hands busy doing nothing with them, but I can make shapes and figures and consume my focus onto something else when having a pulling spree. I use my buckyballs during tests, during speeches, when bored, etc. They have a great texture and are easily moved and they help me SO much. So please, "hands off my balls!"
