Great idea for fridge magnets remake

Well, i think there alot of boring magnets out there, you get those ones with an attempt to be funny, or pictures from peoples holidays, well.

Here is where the action is,
'Stuck Up Magnet Set:
These chewy little fridge magnets are dead-ringers for the real thing except theres a high-power magnet molded right inside each piece. Four assorted flavors - bubble gum, spearmint, peppermint, and fruit-flavor. Includes four wads of "gum."
Screwed Up Magnet Set:
Sick and tired of losing all those little notes you write to yourself? You could bolt them to the fridge. Better yet, just try our new trompe loeil Screwed Up magnets - they won’t leave a mark!

I think they would make a great present, and the chewing gum one would be a really easy one to make at home!

Ah yes, anything that is used to hold things up (screws, large nails, rivets, etc), whether they be placed up with a tool, or thrown (ninja star halves, portions of throwing knives, etc) can be made (in a smaller, lighter form), halved and have a magnet embedded in it.

And, if you don't have a metal surface, but rather a cork one; replace the magnet with a thick pin, or for someone with a cubicle (at work) a bent pin.

i like the throwing star idea...
I have seen them on for sale somewhere (both with magnets and with pins). They are normally made of plastic but made to look real, only smaller then normal.

Here is one form of the Magnet ones...

How do we make these? I am guessing sculpy or such?
Painting with clear nail polish should give a pleasant "recently chewed" look.

yes, that would be the best idea i think, any kind of modeling clay would do it.

Do they look that real? I ask because I am thinking of the little kid, or big one for that matter, who will pop chewed up gum in their mouth, gross, ...and break their teeth!
