Arx is one rollickingly clever magnetic building toy.
Give an Arx piece a nudge and weebling and wobbling follows. Spin one around - simple play is here. Build with Arx… and know a fun new phenomenon for yourself.
When our staff created a large vertical question mark with magnetic Arx, we nodded our heads in agreement… Arx is fundamentally cool.
Stackable, slidable, attractable! Polished to perfection and genius too. Explore design, balance and the mystery of their magnetism!
A magnet rolls through each Arx piece, giving any builder the option of building in ways that defy common thought.
When the magnetic force between two Arx pieces meets- you’ll know it. You’ll feel the slight click as the magnets adhere. Now, you’ve found a new route for creative thinking!
Experiment with your inclinations. Design an Arx display horizontally on a table- or go up and out at angles that are seemingly impossible.
The magnetic capabilities of these beautiful crescent building pieces will send imagination over the moon.

Please Note: Arx is purposefully designed with low power magnets. Children are required to think critically and work carefully to help the magnets find each other and attract. Building more than just random configurations - Arx builds logic, persistence and imagination.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Review for Arx
Posted 3/14/2013 by Elizabeth Halper
Magnets are not strong enough. Returned product and bought magformers instead- those are a hit!
Both Arx and Magformers are wonderful products. Arx is purposefully designed with lower power magnets rolling within inner channels. Thinking critically and working carefully is a prerequisite to creating clever configurations. Magformers are an "any way works" magnetic building toy requiring less experimentation and problem solving for success.
Kids do not like it

This was a bad choice. I purchased Arx because my kids love to explore and solve challenging puzzles and toys and they love building blocks. For some reason they do not like this toy. After I played with them for a couple of hours I have to with my kids. They do not like it.
There's a certain satisfaction in knowing that if it's not right for your family - you're rightfully encouraged to contact us! We assisted our customer promptly. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for details.
Not too impressed. I didn't feel it did what it said it would, the magnets had a hard time sticking together. At 23 years of age I was frustrated because I couldn't get it to do what I wanted... how would a 5 year old feel? So I returned it to Fat Brain. Very good about returns... they are everything they claim to be.
If creating with Arx doesn't hold your attention- hold everything and contact us. We're here to serve you by design. Visit our Returns & Exchanges Center for sure assistance.
