Create beautiful shapes and patterns!
$8.00 — $21.00
Create unique and exciting shapes and patterns with the Star Magnets! Available in sets of 10 red magnets or set of 10 with 5 red and 5 blue magnets. Mix and match for the ultimate creative experience!
These magnets, called rhombic tiles, can be assembled in many ways to “tessellate”, or completely cover the surface with no gaps or overlaps. You can also fit these tiles together to create an aperiodic “Penrose tiling” which never exactly repeats its pattern no matter how large a design you make. When you do that, all the circles and line segments on the tiles will match up perfectly.
*Due to a manufacturing defect, the acute angles in the red magnets of the irregular sets measure 34 degrees rather than 36. Although they are still enjoyable to play with, certain configurations, such as the 10-pointed star of red rhombuses, therefore do not line up with mathematical precision.
