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.
