Marbles: The Brain Store is so incredibly proud to introduce our newest original product, straight from our very own Brain Workshop! Studies now being released suggest that fidget toys enhance cognitive function, focus and retention, and relieve stress, so we decided to hop on the bandwagon and create a product that does just that.

Flingons are X-shaped magnetic wonders that are flingable, slingable, bendable, stackable, and are designed to inspire creativity and put your restless mind at ease. There are a million ways to use your Flingons and our first few customers have come up with a whole heckuva lot of innovative ways to utilize their power! Check out some submissions on Twitter and Instagram with #getyourflingon!
