Grand Prize item #3

Perplexus is a maze in a ball! What you do is roll a small marble through a 3D maze. Better than a flat maze, you will be flipping, twisting and starting over. There is more than one track to choose inside this challenging sphere of obstacles. The track is not enclosed so you must work with gravity to keep it from falling off. That is why I said you will be starting over. Once you master the maze you are still not done! You can compete with your friends and family to beat each others times, or to beat your own record time!
Perplexus is not only fun and entertaining, it also is a tool to help develop fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and some spacial reasoning skills! Best of all, there are no batteries required and is perfectly portable!

Our Experience:
This ball of entertainment is recommended for age 6 and up but we found that any age was entertained! Even Charlotte at 15 months was entertained by the perplexing faces we all made while trying to maneuver the marble through the maze or the sounds made when there was a close call, as well as the groans when the marble went off track and the game started over!
You can get so involved in the maze that you don't want to put it down. You always think "I got it this time" and don't want to lode your place! BUT that is not a problem because it included a stand so that you could stop in the middle of a track and pick up where you left off later. Just set it in the stand to keep it from rolling the marble out of place.
Overall the whole family loved this! Even Daddy was perplexed at times! It is no wonder that it has won so many awards! Definitely a must have on holiday and birthday wish lists for all ages!
