Speks are made by Retrospective Goods, formed by Craig Zucker, the guy behind Buckyballs, with the aim of inspiring, enlightening, and entertaining. In 2009, Rolling Stone named Buckyballs “Toy of the Year.” In 2011, People Magazine called them the year’s biggest trend.
By 2012, after millions sold and a regulatory battle with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Buckyballs were discontinued at the height of their popularity. In 2017, after an appeals court overturned the CPSC ban, the founders of Buckyballs and Zen Magnets teamed up to develop a smaller and totally compliant magnetic ball: Speks.
Using the same Rare Earth magnetic technology as Buckyballs and Zen Magnets, Speks allows customers to defeat dullness while mashing, shaping, and sculpting. Now, the Speks line of desk toys also includes Super Speks and Blocks by Speks.
