The Best Bet


The next big thing in cubicle fidgeting has arrived. A follow-up to the moldable, pullable, and highly addictive magnetic Buckyballs, the brand-new Buckybars up the ante in desktop sculpture-making. Currently for sale only in New York ($25 at Pylones, 69 Spring St., nr. Lafayette St.; 212-431-3244), the set’s 36 inch-long pieces are designed to hook up with the original balls, forming joints and allowing you to create bigger three-dimensional constructions—a magnet log cabin, a shiny ski slope, a geometric necklace—while keeping you awake on that otherwise nod-inducing conference call.
