This new & more robust version of our Puzzle Ball (formerly known as our Magic Ball Cube) has 12 holes and 11 colourful balls inside that you move from one hole to another. The objective is to scramble the coloured balls, then figure out how to get them all back into their matching coloured slots in all holes.
A great activity for
- Improving fine motor
- Providing a mental workout
- Non ‘tech’ focused activity
- Emotional regulation
- Strengthening planning, problem solving & sequencing.
A great educational & fun activity.
This is an awesome sensory puzzle that is achievable to solve from 4 and up typically. Move the inner balls (in a slide fashion) across to the empty space/hole to manipulate the colours so that the coloured ball matches up with the colour surround. You can only move the balls closest to the 'hole' so it takes thinking to work out where to move each ball so that you can match the colour ball to the same colour hole.
A great one for in the car that is NON tech in nature.
If a ball is forced intro centre of the cube rather than slide from side to side, the foam centre can be dislodged. Generally it can be popped back into place, however it it is important to note this is not how the cube is meant to be handled.
Not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
