A six-color (red, blue, green, yellow, white, and black) Ball of Whacks. Includes two pyramid-shaped pieces not included in the original, as well as a 96-page guide-book.
Experience the sheer pleasure of play, exploration, and endless kinetic discovery!
When you first see the Ball of Whacks, you might think, "Ah, another Rubik's Cube. - Not so!
Made up of thirty magnetic rhombi (Equilateral quadrilaterals where the opposite sides are parallel, for those who were interested), hands of all sizes can take apart and rebuild this ball in endless ways to form amazing designs. The magnets are so easy to form and reform!
Fancy yourself to be a genius? COOL! - Five platonic solids give your brain a delightful challenge. Or, if you're one of the "normal" types like myself, just building them in all kinds of your own ways is loads of fun too.
Because the magnets attract and repel on different surfaces, putting them together is addictive and challenging. Even more fun is the fact that they'll subtly shift and slide, often choosing a better connection than the one you originally wanted.
Enhance creativity and initiate problem solving. Stimulate playfulness and add fun to your learning and working environment.
Invaluable to the classroom, therapy sessions, pain management practices, and more, the Ball of Whacks is a brilliant tool for distraction and refocusing the mind.
Tactile, logic, auditory, focus... It's everything you could ever want in a brain-boosting puzzle!
Still want to boost the fun even more? Combine more sets for more incredible constructions, or even just mix in other magnetic items for even more creative stimulation!
Through shapes both abstract and geometric, Roger von Oech's Ball of Whacks is just the creative and intelligent fun you've been looking for.
This diverse puzzle is made up of 30 identical, magnetic pyramid pieces that can be rearranged again and again into endless creations. It claims to stimulate brain activity by encouraging the puzzler to work with both their hands and their eyes to create beautiful geometric shapes. A 96-page illustrated guidebook provides activities and tips. A unique toy or desktop mind refresher. - Laura
