These are toys that look like compasses not actual compasses. I put a strong magnet near them and they did not respond even a little. They are plastic all the way through. Do not buy if you want a working compass. Kind of a mean toy, give it to the kids and they play with it they can pretend, but they can't actually use it; they don't learn anything from this toy. If you deep fry a McDonald's hamburger it may be unhealthy, but it still has some nutritional value; these, on the other hand, are pure garbage. Store them in the trash can.
