Product Description:

Finally, a puzzle that isn't flat! In fact, it's quite the opposite. It is a sphere! This means you'll be twisting it quite a bit in order to complete the puzzle. There are many different tracks inside the sphere, with obstacles along each. Follow the numbered path, and keep trying! It'll take more than one attempt to complete this challenge, and there seem to be many dead ends. Almost every angle, side, and rotation will be needed to move the little metal ball to the end... maybe if you rotate it, you can make it- oops! It fell off! It's fun to play it on your own or race against a friend with another Perplexus. I must warn you, however: it's completely addicting. You'll never want to let go of it once you start. ~ Stephen

Category Description for Perplexus:

Finally, puzzles that aren't flat! In fact, they're quite the opposite. They're spheres! Each Perplexus puzzle is a 3-D plastic sphere, filled with a maze-like track that appears to twist and turn in all dimensions. There are dozens of barriers to overcome, each numbered along the track. The goal is to navigate the tiny steel ball all through the puzzle from obstacle #1 to the very end. Then get ready to twist and rotate the sphere to try and complete the puzzle! Follow the numbered path, and keep trying! It'll take more than one attempt to complete this challenge, and there seem to be many dead ends. Almost every angle, side, and rotation will be needed to move the little ball to the end... maybe if you rotate it, you can make it- oops! It fell off! It's fun to play it on your own or race against a friend with another Perplexus. I must warn you, however: it's completely addicting. You'll never want to let go of it once you start.

Saw on tv and thought it was cool

I think this will keep the kids off their electronics yet keep their minds stimulated and help them develop problem-solving skills.

A great quiet activity with multiple challenges.

I bought this for the adults to enjoy on vacation in the evenings after putting the kids to bed. We love challenges and the adult kids are very competitive. Should be a fun trip.

Some of the (boys) at the after-school program at our library like to do hands-on puzzles. These are a good alternative for them to just playing computer games on the Chromebooks we provide for them. This puzzle looks like one they would like.

We bought an Original Perplexus as a family Christmas gift It was an immediate hit with most of the family members (including mom and dad) waiting anxiously for a turn Almost a year later the kids are still enjoying it After some practice our 5 year old has been able to master all three levels but the challenge of each level makes it fun for adults too Friends that come to play often ask "Where's the Perplexus?" It is wonderful to watch the kids sit and concentrate as they conquer one of the difficult spots of the maze For the amount of use and durability of this toy it is definitely worth the price We are trying to decide which model of this toy to purchase next
