Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ's

 

What are Wordbits made from?

Wordbits are made from ABS plastic, the most durable, nearly impossible to break kind. Black Wordbits are made using post-consumer recycled ABS plastic. We are working on environmentally friendly alternatives for the rest of our colours too. 

 

How many sets should I get?

For a gift or small noticeboard 1 set is ideal. For households looking to write words and sentences we recommend 2-3 sets in order to be able to spell without too many restrictions.  

 

Which letters and characters are in the set?

Each set contains 60 letters and characters:

AAABBCCDDEEEEFFGGHHIIIJJKKLLMMNNNOOOPPQQRRSSTTUUVWXYYYZ&&#++

 

How strong are the magnets?

We worked hard to find the goldilocks perfect stregth - strong enough to hold a greeting card but not so strong that they're difficult to move around. We settled on a neodymium (rare earth) magnet with theoretical pull strength of 450g. 

 

Are there hormone disrupting chemicals in Wordbits?

No. Wordbits are BPA and phthalate free. We have passed European Union REACH testing for safety.

 

Can I become a stockist? 

We are currently focussed on specialist design and stationery stores. If you think your store would be a good fit for Wordbits please get in touch via the Stockist Application form here

 

Are Wordbits for children?

No. Due to the use of small, strong magnets Wordbits are not a toy. Wordbits are intended for ages 14+. Swallowed magnets can stick together across intestines causing serious infections and death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnets are swallowed or inhaled.
