  • Developed with occupational and physiotherapists as an aid to improve fine motor skills
  • A new problem solving experience with every single use
  • Unpredictable movements make every turn unique
  • Helps relieve stress by requiring focus and attention

IN THE NICK OF TIME

A friend's young daughter-in-law, Linda, had recent brain surgery. She can get around slowly but has difficulty with her balance and I happened to see Jules Pieri, co-founder of Grommet, on CMBC promoting her new book, "“How We Make Stuff Now: Turn Ideas into Products That Build Successful Businesses ”. Someone on the program was using the True Balance as a Grommet featured item and I immediately thought it would be perfect for Linda. She loves it and can't wait to show it to her Physical Therapist.More > < Less

I purchased the TrueBalance for an 8 year old, but not only did he and his older sister have fun with it, but the many adults who were there all took turns and played with it most of the day. A big hit!!More > < Less

About TrueBalance

Well-Balanced Fun

The TrueBalance balance toy practically begs you to pick it up. Once we did, we didn’t want to put it down.

The handheld toy-meets-brain teaser is made to work on fine motor skills and it is endlessly fun. The objective of the toy is to get the rotating magnetic discs to stack up. Sounds easy, but as we learned, it's not—which makes playing with it so engaging. The toy’s movements are unpredictable, so you have to react quickly. Kids and grown-ups alike rely on hand-eye coordination, concentration, problem solving skills, and, yes, balance, to get the discs to line up.

Henrik Deterberg and his daughter Linea invented TrueBalance as a rehabilitative tool for folks recovering from brain injuries and strokes. While it did the job of working fine motor skills, the Deterberg’s learned others were simply playing with it for fun. Pick one up and we think you’ll agree this toy is one the whole family will want to get their hands on.
