It is a really cold day out today. So, I have a great Chasing Away the Chills inside activity! It is a Perplexus Original. These are soooo..much fun! Seriously. And, you can take them in the vehicle! Inside the clear ball is a small marble, that you have to move from start to finish on the little track. You can choose 1, 2, or 3. Sound easy? There are also barriers you have to get over and around! Not as easy as it sounds. You have to twist and turn the ball and work with gravity to complete your task. When you are done, work another track. The Original has 100 barriers to challenge you. The recommended age is 6 and up, but I have a feeling a 6 year old might complete it before some of us adults!
The Perplexus also comes in a Rookie, for beginners. (Ages 4 and up). This one has 70 barriers. Then for those who want a real challenge, there is the Epic! This one has 125 challenging barriers. So, choose which level you think you are up to and then challenge the clock or your friends.
Each Perplexus puzzle/maze comes with a difficulty rating. The Original is a 6, the Rookie is a 3, and of course the Epic is an 8. I am including a few videos of the Perplexus Original being played with. My 11 year old found it frustrating at first, but she didn't want to quit, she wanted to finish. My 14 year old tried next. She was a little more familiar with the Perplexus, so she made it a little farther on her first try.
Do you know someone who likes challenges? The Perplexus Original, Rookie, and Epic make great gifts! Or perhaps you want to help your child with hand/eye co-ordination. Check out Perplexus. You might just be amazed. Children will sir there and try over and over again to complete this maze! And it's fun too!
Now, how can you get your own Perplexus? Use their online store guide to find a toy shop near you, or perhaps you could win this giveaway! Yes, one neighbor will receive a Perplexus Original!
