    Accessories you fridge with beautiful Fridge Magnets

    Fridge magnets or wooden fridge magnets are small objects producing magnetic fields which are attached to some attractive or artistic ornaments so that it compliments with your fridge beautifully. They can be made with rubber, PVC, metal, porcelain, epoxy etc or by mixing some of these materials.

    Many of us have grown up seeing magnets on our fridge, or on the fridge of our relatives but we never understood why we use them? Along with acting as a decor for your fridge, it is really helpful for people who forget things easily as you can attach important notes or to-do list, pictures on it as well

    The first fridge magnets or magnets to be used on a fridge was invented by Sam Hardcastle, by creating a method to mix iron oxide with vinyl which resulted in his magnets having more potential or his magnets held onto the surfaces completely. They were cylindrical in shape after which flexible magnets were developed. As we find distinct north and south poles in conventional magnets, flat fridge magnets reflect magnetization during manufacturing by alternating north and south poles on the refrigerator side. 

    Why do people buy fridge magnets?

    Collecting fridge magnets is considered a hobby, with some people having a special collection as they collect magnets from their travels which are sold at souvenir shops all around the world. Though there is no specific term for such collectors Russians have coined the term memo magnetics and the collector would be called memo magnetist. Louise J Greenfarb holds a Guinness world record for largest verified fridge magnet collection with 19,300 items in 1997 which grew up to 29000 in 2002 and over 30,000 later on.
