Fun and Frustrating

7/8/2019 by Michele

I love working this puzzle. I am thrilled and proud when I get far but want to scream when I drop the bead. I have gotten to #93 but that is were serious patience and steady hands are needed. So glad I purchased it! Will check company for more.More > < Less

Great family toy!

I got two of these for my grandsons, ages 10 and 11, for Christmas. They were a big hit. We are thinking of buying another just to have around when grandkids visit. It is colorful and fun.More > < Less

I bought a couple of others puzzle toys for boys 6 and 8. But this one I wanted to get my eldest grandson at age 9. Do you have any idea when some will be available? I would like to give it as a gift for Christmas to my 9 year old grand child.More > < Less

Fun for all

Bought this for the great grands (5+years) since home is essentially toy free. It totally fascinated all the adults who literally took it over. Plan on getting more as different ones become available.More > < Less

why I hated it!

12/28/2017 by Barbara

Gave it to my son (age 53) for Christmas. He had enjoyed played with it on Thanksgiving at his brother's house. He spent Christmas, the 26th, and the 27th playing with it. Thank goodness, he and his family left after lunch on the 27th! Now I don't need to hear him twisting and turning it and cursing when he fails once again!More > < Less

Perplexus - 3D Maze Game

About Perplexus

Amazing Space

These days solo gaming nearly always comes in the form of handheld electronics. Want to keep the kids busy? There's an app for that. But the truth is, there are remarkably innovative games that don't involve batteries or computers.

Perplexus is unlike anything we've ever seen before—and it may just be the most fun you can have without batteries. It's a marble maze that works in 3-D, on every plane, all twisted up inside a ball. Imagine one of those tilting labyrinth marble mazes contorted in on itself, reimagined in color and somehow married with both a playground and a fun house. It's the brainchild of Michael McGinnis, who first came up with the concept in the late 1970s as a project for an art class. Getting it to market was an enormous challenge with lots of ups and downs as Michael tried to navigate the toy industry, but Perplexus was worth the wait.

Perplexus challenges the mind, fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination. In the Original version, which contains more than 23 feet of track inside a 8" diameter sphere, there are 100 separate goal points, divided into three different skill levels. The Rookie version is easier for small hands to manipulate, while the Epic version adds greater complexity and the ability for users to do stunts. Twist is the brand new addition to the Perplexus family, and it requires a player to turn the knob that realigns the tracks to escape traps and decoys.

All the models are easy to take in the car, or anywhere else you'll have to keep kids ages 6+ entertained. Just don't be surprised if you find yourself playing with Perplexus just as much as they do!
