metro magnets toronto

A stocking stuffer for the TTC nerd in your life

Christmas is just around the corner (suddenly just a month away!), but we're about to make your shopping list that much easier to navigate. Metro Magents (which are, fittingly, brought to you by Spacing Magazine) offer a fun, or potentially depressing, exercise in planning out transit for your very own imaginary city hub.

At $15, they're the perfect stocking stuffer for the transit-minded-nerds in your life (or yourself), and come as a set of 175 magnetic strips that can be arranged to form your ideal (but unfortunately) imaginary city transit.

Metro Magnets are available online, or in-store at Wise Daughters or Outer Layer on Bloor (430 Bloor St. W).

Spacing asks, "Have you ever wanted to create your own subway map?" and gauging by recent independent efforts to do just that, you do. And who knows, you might single-handedly solve our own city's transit problems (Beautiful Mind-style).
