Save Bucky Balls!!

| | Comments (5)
So most Australian states have interim bans in place for the sale of Buckyballs.  Not sure what that means for imports.  Just in case, I did another stocking up trip.  This time direct from Get Buckyballs.  And saved a fortune.  Buying 216 from them was only slightly more expensive than buying 125 from Australian Geographic.  I got myself another 216 originals and 216 blue-green ones.  And got Stu a couple of packs of cubes.  And a set of "Bucky Bigs" to have at work.  And because I got in during a promotion to "save our balls" I got a tshirt, case and sticker for free as well.  

More Buckyballs
They matched my fingernails last week

Twelve of the above balls make a "mega buckyball"

I think I should have bought myself another couple of packs of 216 though...

The makers of Buckyballs stopped selling to Australia in the end - apparently their shipments were being returned. So you might be lucky and be able to buy them online and import them that way, but is also quite possible they'll be returned to sender by customs.

Kids swallow stupid things all the time. Cigarette butts, marbles, paperclips, thumb tacks. I do not see the CPSC suing the makers of those products and banning them. Parents need to start taking responsibility for raising stupid kids rather then trying to pawn it off on toy makers, TV and movies, and video games. TRY SUPERVISING YOUR KIDS YOU LAZY MORONS!!
