The little magnet balls are kinda hard to keep on the stick and move. A lot harder than it looks! The magnet stick was hard to get into the holder after I cut it open, so I taped the area down, and added a small dowel to the end of it to hold onto, and to take in and out.
This is a great toy. My son really has enjoyed playing with it. It makes a great 'quiet' toy that we can take along for car rides. He plays with it a lot. I will need to order more for everyone in the house.
