Neodymium Magnets Banned in NZ

Title says it all really. 

Yesterday the government made a knee jerk reaction and banned the sale and import of high powered magnets in NZ citing potential harm to children. 

More information can be found here.

They cite us being the third country (even though NSW is the only state in Australia to have a ban in place, and for children's toys only) in the world to ban them. 
So no longer can we purchase magnets for our miniatures thanks to a brainless few.

  1. It is true that neodymium magnets have many useful advantages but they also have disadvantages. It is important that before we decide to use or purchase these magnets, we are knowledgeable about how to properly use them without harming us especially the children.
