magnetic dots fun kit??

My kids were watching the Disney/Family channel this morning, and one of those "as seen on tv" ads came up.

It was for a magnetic dot kit of some kind.... different colored "pens" that released "magnetic colored dots". You dragged (or dotted) the pen along the board and it released the magnetic dots. Comes with stencils. 3D glasses.

Has anyone seen this ad? Do you remember the name of the product or it's website? I thought I would remember the webpage address, but I forgot. I've been googling but can not find it.

No, I'm afraid that's not it. Though it does look kind of neat as well! And no multiple pieces/dots to go missing.

On the one I'm referring to, the "pens" actually releases magnetic "dots". The colored magnetic dots match the color of the pen. Once the kids create something, they can wipe all the magnetic dots into a slot that sends the dots to a sorter on the backside. Which then lines them up to be put back into the co-ordinating pens again.

Could it be PixOs? http://www.pixos.com/
While they are not magnetic, they fit all of the other descriptions that you gave of it...

Looks neato, but also like a lawsuit in the making. Unfortunately.

I was looking at the Magna Color the other day. It looks pretty neat...but as the other poster said, a lawsuit waiting to happen. LOL Which is totally ridiculous.

I wonder how well it really works?

I would not want something like that in my house if I had pets or small children.

As an ER nurse I feel like I have to speak up, even though they do look fun, HOWEVER small magnets can be deadly if a small child or a pet were to swallow them. If two magnets were to line up on opposites side of the walls of the digestive tract the magnets will be attracted to each other resulting in severe medical condition or even death.

Just my 2 cents....
