Fun and Challenging!!!
Posted 12/18/2009 by Sue Schmidt
Rating: 5

I bought this for a Christmas present for my 10 yr old nephew but I came home one day to my 13 yr old son playing with it. (He told me not to worry - he would be able to put it back in the box and no one would ever know it had been played with!) Anyway my son, my husband and I spent all evening playing with it. It is one of those things you just don't want to put down until you master it! The next day I ordered 2 more - one for my son (and husband) and one for my 15 yr old nephew.

Review of Perplexus
Posted 1/26/2010 by Bob Mackay
Rating: 1

I like your maze very much, but it arrived without a ball inside, which suggests that factory QA is not up to scratch. I called Fat Brain Toys, who forwarded me to the manufacturer to get a replacement. The manufacturer did not return phone calls. I was able to buy a steel ball of the correct size and drill a hole in the cover of the puzzle to get it inside. I have yet to solve it completely, but that is as it should be! The central bucket does not swing very well, which will probably be a problem for the last move, when I get to it. The swing arm looks floppy, but worked OK. I find the numbers defining the route to be too faint to read reliably without very strong light.
This gentleman is quite possibly the most resourceful customer we've known. No need to track down a steel sphere and drill a hole in your Perplexus ball- unless of course you want to do that! Call us if you need a shorter route to full satisfaction. We'll make sure you receive the customer care you deserve. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.

Perplexus is a great toy
Posted 10/18/2010 by Rebecca Hunt
Rating: 5

Perplexus rewards patience and dexterity. The ball can roll too quickly and fall off the track if you don't handle the maze in such a way to control the speed and direction of the roll, and some of the steps needed to take the ball to the next step of the maze are not always obvious. There are a sequence of numbers 1-99 that allow the user to see just how far along in the maze s/he has gotten, but those numbers aren't very easy to see and can be easily overlooked. A very good feature is the three different starting places, which allow one to skip large areas already solved so that one does not always have to start at the very beginning each time the ball falls off the track. So far my 8yo son and I have been using the 2nd starting spot, and have learned that each section is harder than the last. We've had it for less than a week, so hopefully we won't be stuck there for much longer!

Review of Perplexus
Posted 5/3/2010 by Carol B - EDUCATOR
Rating: 5

This puzzle is able to keep a six year olds attention and intrigue adults as well. The kindergarten children in my daycare think this product is "COOL"! It keeps their attention for 1/2 an hour or so at a time. One 6 year old, with difficulty focusing, loves this toy. I believe it will help children increase their attention span and their eye-hand-coordination. I'm very pleased about this purchase.

Perplexingly AMAZING!
Posted 8/24/2010 by Andrea
Rating: 5

For our son's 7th birthday we surprised him and did a "makeover" on a room in our house so that he would have his own Office. We redecorated the room top to bottom, and gifts included a laptop, printer, phone, and camera - all of which he really wanted (and trust me, ALL were rehabbed or ebay!). We threw in a Perplexus because it looked so interesting and he's really into marble tracks and mazes. He woke up at 5 am to open his presents and was impressed with the office stuff but was OBSESSED with the Perplexus! We ALL played with it all morning, and have grabbed it at times throughout every day since then. It is just such a Great toy! Very challenging but not overwhelming. You want to keep trying it and it's addictive. It's also a great teacher of Patience, Thinking Ahead, and Moderate Movement. We are really impressed (as are all of the friends who passed it around at the birthday party)!

Perplexus
Posted 8/5/2010 by J Sharpe - EDUCATOR
Rating: 5

Perplexus is a HIT! I purchase games for piano students to play while they are waiting to take their lesson. I look for games that will encourage focus and concentration and are new and different. Perplexus meets all those expectations and more. It has been particularly enjoyed by the middle school and high school bunch. Tonight my 12-year-old grandduaghter begged to take it home for the night. I had to make her promise to return it in the morning and to treat it with tender loving care--andn she will. She said I really should have purshased two!

Perplexus maze
Posted 12/6/2010 by Kelly Thompson
Rating: 4

My 10 & 11 year old boy and girl couldn't put it down when we first got it and still enjoy the challenge of it. Well worth the money. I'm planning on ordering another for a birthday gift for another family. So nice to see them interested in something that's not electronic. Unfortunately, my son was tossing it around like a ball, dropped it and a piece broke off. I'm wondering if it can be openend, repaired and closed back up.

Review for Perplexus
Posted 3/7/2010
Rating: 5

I gave Perplexus to my nephew as a gift and it seemed to perplex both a 9 year old boy and a 36 year old man at the same time. It's similar to a video game that can entertain a boy for hours quietly and independently while he tries to get to the next step or level - only he's not sitting in front of a screen. I would say that he played Perplexus for a good 3 hours straight and had a hard time putting it down.

Rating: 3

The game is a great idea, which is why I thought I would purchase it. I think that the tracks are not joining up easily enough and because of that the ball jumps off too quickly and you lose your position again. Perhaps if it was remodeled to make it a little bit more fluid as the ball moves around, then kids could really get the hang of it.
Perplexus is designed to exercise the intellect as well as coordination and perceptual skills. The tracks are designed with small gaps to invite greater challenge.

Great Toy!
Posted 12/15/2010 by Grace Lukens
Rating: 5

I bought this toy for my grandchildren, ages 11, 8, and 4, as an add on gift to the other toys I got for them as individuals. They loved it! The eleven year old girl was getting through level two in a little while, and the 8 year girl kept at it even though she was challenged by level one. The four year old couldn't get very far with it, but was so intriqued with it that he told me when he grows up and works for Fat Brain Toys he is going to make Perplexus toys, too! The kids all wanted their dad to try it, and I loved it so much I told them I was going to buy another one for Grandpa and me. It would be fun to have around the house. The engineering in this thing is so fascinating that I went to their website to find out who made it!

This is a great toy! The whole family has played with it. It is colorful and durable and promotes great hand-eye coordination. It also requires patience and concentration. The only problem is that there is not a map/paper copy of the trail and no one who has played it can find #31. I know there are videos about it on You Tube so I will research it from that aspect.

Product review of Perplexus
Posted 2/15/2010 by Leslie Anderson Freck
Rating: 4

This is one of those toys that kids (our are aged 7 & 9) enjoy, but parents are always waiting for their turn, as well. We had been looking for an old-fashioned, wooden labyrinth game, but have been dismayed at the poor quality of those we found lately. Perplexus requires similar eye-hand coordination and spatial thinking, but in a slightly different format. You turn the entire ball to make the marble follow the path, and if it falls off, it goes to the bottom of the ball and you must start over. One bonus is that you can't lose the marble. The only complaint we have is that the numbers that direct you in the right directions are simply embossed on the plastic tracks and difficult to see and the embossed name on the clear plastic ball can occlude your vision at times as well. Overall, a great toy....used during the day and well after the kids go to bed.

Extremely addictive toy which nobody wanted to share. "I just want to try it one more time!" "That's what you said five times ago!" "I haven't had a turn, yet!" It does not promote group play, because it is so much fun. I need one for myself.

The kids found an old wooden marble labyrinth at my parents house and were smitten. We replaced it with the Perplexus and it's an improvement! Self contained to limit loss of parts, no knobs, 360 degrees of fun. Top 10 toy of all time.

Perplexus is a challenge for my 7 yr. old grandson. He enjoys playing with it. Unlike other puzzels he can pick it up and put it down without having to pickup the peices and put them away. He plays with it several times a day and gets better each time.

My children ARGUE about who's turn it is to try this toy. Unfortunately, my husband is now in the mix saying it's HIS turn. A great toy from 8 to 40 years+. I like how my normally clumsy son is able to carefully turn the ball--I believe it is helping him have better eye/hand coordination. My daughter and he have a contest to see who can go the farthest on the maze. This is a whole lot of fun which passed 4 hours of a road trip quickly.

One trick pony?

Rating: 3

I was really excited for my 9 year old son to get this toy. The concept is great and the product is well built. The downside is there seems to be only one way get the ball in the cup! So...now that he knows how to do it well... he doesn't play with it much. I wish there was more than one way to solve the puzzle.
He's got keen eyes and steady hands. Please note, there are three levels to Perplexus fun. If you're the type to master Perplexus every time you try, you've got a strong skill set for learning to pilot a plane or perform surgery. If you're really, really rotten at Perplexus but love the hand-eye challenge, maybe watch repair...

I gave this to my 6 yr. old grandson for Christmas. After I showed him how to play with it he played with it for quite awhile. Then he would give it to me to try and back and forth it went. He seemed to enjoy playing with it. The other adults present enjoyed trying to complete one maze. It isn't easy but I don't think it is too hard to complete but will take time to master. My engineer son was impressed with it for a 6 yr. old because of it being "three dimensional".

Great product, exactly as described. Suggested age use of 6-106 may be a little far reaching. This was bought as a gift for a 6 year old and he struggles with it and gets frustrated. This may be a reflection of the child more than the product though. We hope he will continue to grow in to it.

I don't think this toy should be in the category for children with autism. I did not return it because he has two other brothers who might play with it.
Children with Autism like all of us -vary in their abilities and strengths. We've heard of a few children with Autism or Asperger's Syndrome that enjoy Perplexus. As a parent or educator who knows the individual child well, you are the best judge of its appropriateness for building logic and fine motor skills.

This is such a beautifully designed game. We actually have it sitting out on a pedestal, it's visually quite beautiful, and that way it's right there to enjoy and grab and play for a few (or a lot!) of minutes. Also, because it is self-contained, and sealed, there are no parts to lose or look for. It's so tricky, it is going to provide years of entertainment. Well done!

I bought this product for those times when my grandchildren visit. It will be a while before they do, so this review concerns my own experience with it. Naturally, I had to see how interesting and how difficult the puzzle would prove to be. IMO it is challenging for an adult to solve completely. The first sections though are quite easy, so even a young child can have some success with it. I am interested to see how they take to it. I am also curious to find out how well their parents do. I pick it up once an a while myself.

This toy is addictive! The mazes are amazing! My 3 year old grandson is quite good at it, much better than his grandma. The toy is great for all ages, and the entire family can't put it down! It is challenging, frustrating and exciting all at once. You want to keep going until you get the metal ball through the many mazes. The only drawback is that it is sometimes hard to see the ball and hard to tell what direction you need to be going in. You can end up repeating what you've already done. There are some points where the ball falls very quickly and you have to start over. But all in all it is a great toy.

Best toy ever!

This toy was designed by an art instructor at SRJC. He has done similar art projects that are on a larger scale. I first saw one of the interactive art sculptures and was intrigued. I saw the perplexus on sale at my schools bookstore, and bought it right away as a girt for my brother, 37. I got it home and couldn't resist opening it myself. I've been playing with it ever since. I felt bad about opening my brothers gift so I went online to buy him a new one. * Since giving the Perplexus to him we have all enjoyed playing it . From my nephew who is 4 years old to my uncle who is in his 70's everyone has been facinated with it. I highly reccomend it for everyone.

it is great because my kids have to use their problem-solving skills. they constantly take turns passing it back and forth. it is so much better for them than video games and tv. everyone they show it to can't stop trying to pass each level. our whole family loves it. we have one at home and purchased one for a birthday gift.

So fun! In an age where my nephew only loves Legos or video games, we've found a toy that he will play with! Not many toys can keep a 10 year old's attention for long, but this one does. We even argued over who had the next turn. The only one who found it too hard was the 4 year old. Great stuff!

This game is amazing! I bought it and my boys have not put it down yet. They completed the 3 levels for the maze by the second day. After that, they've made their own games, mazes, and challenges for themselves and each other. I love this toy. I thought it was a bit pricey just for a hand-held game, but now I know, it is worth every penny. Hours of quiet entertainment.

Great toy, one suggestion: On both sides of the clear plastic globe there is a logo molded into the plastic. This distorts the view the player has to view the ball inside. The entire plastic globe should be smooth and clear. Thanks, -Frank

Plasmart Perplexus Maze Game
Posted 2/19/2010 by Lambreca
Rating: 4

After playing with it for several hours over the past days, I can already conclude that the Perplexus is one of the coolest toys/puzzles I ever put my hands on. It starts out easy, making it interesting for children (I guess from ages 8 onwards), but the difficulty gradually increases to make it challenging for adults as well. It is very hard to put the Perplexus down ! The Perplexus has 3 starting positions. The first one is the beginning of the track, but 2 and 3 allow you to skip over 1/3rd or 2/3rd of the obstacle course in order to continue without redoing the easy part over and over again.

Perplexus and Perplexus Rookie

Rating: 5

We bought the Perplexus Rookie and the Perplexus for our grandson's 4th birthday. He was intrigued with the Rookie and his dad was intrigued with the Perplexus! We got several great pictures of them side-by-side working on their Perplexus'. We bought both the 4+ and the 7+ Perplexus because our grandson is the type to study and work with the Rookie until he has mastered it. We wanted him to have the next step when he's ready. Our gift was a big hit!

This is the second Perplexus ball of this type we've owned. The first one got broken (probably in a fit of frustration!). Just as fun as the first time around, though. It was a gift and was opened at a party. The adults immediately go in on the action and I don't think the kids actually got a chance until everyone went home!

The grandparents and parents won't put it down long enough for the child to play with it!! Great toy - addictive. Pretty sure it will last long enough for the child it was intended for to grow into it. I bought the original version for the 4 year old and the Rookie for the 3 year old. They're pretty smart but not quite ready for these challenging toys...YET! But they are very intrigued by the adults obsession with them!

Review of Perplexus
Posted 1/9/2012 by Lynn Johnson
Rating: 4

I gave this to my 17-year-old son who enjoyed it very much, but once he completed the challenge (which he was able to do fairly quickly), he has not played with it. I expect that it will be brought out again when he has friends over. I think this is a good puzzle for his age group, but, in retrospect, would purchase the more difficult version. Because of his age, I did not expect him to play with this frequently. I purchased it for a fun, short term challenge that would divert him temporarily from video games, and it served this purpose well.

We gave many of these (at least 10) for Christmas this year. They were/are a hit. Most recipients want to know where they can buy them for friends. The balls get played with almost every day and once they get picked up there's no putting them down. We gave them to males and females ages 6 to 40 and every ball was in use most of Christmas day.

I'm not sure if this game got lost among the presents, but after my 8 yr old daughter took it out of the packaging, she put it down without really engaging. I'm hopeful that she'll come back to it.
If Perplexus isn't a big hit, our Returns & Exchanges center may be another route to take.

It's a love hate relationship
Posted 12/27/2011 by WireKat
Rating: 5

When you first pick it up, it mocks you. At first a single steel ball floats free but soon you are trapped in the maze that is your mind. You want to put it down but you can't. It forces you to start yet again until you decide to think ahead. Even then you get cocky and fall victim again. It mocks you yet again by allowing you to start further along yet those completed steps are no easier now. Finally you are able to speed past obstacles, only to be thrown free when the ball passes beyond your comprehension. In the end, is it your victory?

Great Toy for All Ages!

Rating: 5

Bought Perplexus because my husband couldn't put it down at a friends house. Had it sent to my work address where it sat in my office all week and was played by every person who walked by my door. Everyone wanted to know what it was and how it worked. I told all of them about Fat Brain Toys and the great stuff on your website. All the people liked the toy. Some played it for a while then put it down and said they'd had enough couldn't make it work. Others played and played trying to conquer the challenge. The bottom line; this is one great, fun toy that creates a lot of conversation and enjoyment. After the week in my office I took it home where it continues to bring joy to my husband and everyone who visits.

This toy was out of the box less than a minute and was being fought over. I have a 35 year old and a 5 year old who were sitting here waiting for the other to drop the ball. I have also found it completely addicting. It helps with motor skills, reasoning and memory. My 5 year old has ADHD and this is the first thing he's sat and put good attention into in a long time! I highly recommend this for little kids and big ones too!

This was a gift for a 7 yr old boy who is very hyper. He loves it, his mother & I think this is a good toy to teach hand & eye cordination. And I can see why it is something that children of all ages up to adults would love, it's a challange. I gave your booklet of your items to his mother & she was glad to get it, as she could look at it better than keep checking things on the website. I think your company has a great selection of toys to stimulate the "brains" of children of all ages.

Rating: 5

Challenging and entertaining for our adult son for whom the Perplexus was intended. He has trouble getting to play with it though because his six year old daughter loves it. Our son-in-law and his five year old son enjoy one that he received for a gift also! The maze is fun for all ages. An added benefit is that Perplexus is a calming toy for active young children. The numbers are more difficult to see for those in the family with older eyes . . . good excuse when the five year old can get further than you in solving the maze!

It sticks to its name, as it will perplex you! The kids have a go at it, see how far they can get, play with it for a few hours at a time (because you know you can get farther than that!) and then have to take a break before their brains explode (my 7 year old's words).

My 7 year old son didn't hardly put Perplexus down for 2 days, but if he did my 32 year old husband was playing with it. My husband was determined to finish the maze and did so after about a week. My son is still working at it and still enjoys playing with it almost 4 weeks later. Grandma found the same Perplexus at ShopKo for about half the price.

Another one of my grandsons (who is much older) has aksed me to purchase Perplexus for him. Thank you for supplying me with your catelog as I would have never found such a great product on my own!

I ordered Perplexus as gifts for 2 boys, ages 8 & 10. My son, the 8-year-old really likes it; I haven't heard much from the 10-year-old (lives in a different state). It is interesting enough for my son & his friends to pick up & try out. Also seems like they have enough success to keep playing with it, but it's not easy to get all the way through - although my son has solved it a couple of times already.

Fun Challenging Toy

Received as Christmas Gift - it entertained everyone Christmas Day - as soon as someone would put it down, someone else picked it up. It did seem to entertain the adults much more than my 4 year old grandson, but he also had many other new toys. I think it will be a toy that never gets old - it will always be challenging. Also, since it is completely contained within the hard plastic shell, I don't think you will ever wear it out. I was completely satisfied with my purchase!

The picture almost says it all. Great toy and even better than the simple 2D marble maze puzzles. I have almost completed 2 out of the 3 tracks in the maze and the game play is quite good. My only complaint is that there are a couple of spots that are difficult just for the sake of being difficult and not difficult because they are novel. All in all a great game, especially for those who are good with spacial problems.

Perplexus is a fun way to spend time
Posted 1/20/2010
Rating: 5

Perplexus has been a great puzzle. I have spent time playing with it, and took the toy when visiting family over the holidays. Everyone had to get their hands on it. Two nephews, ages 5 and 12, were kept busy trying to get the ball along its path. Even when the ball would fall off, I didn't see frustration but rather determination. My brother-in-law stayed focused on Perplexus until he was finally able to accomplish all three paths. And, we've found that success does not mean that Perplexus gets put up - rather, it is still fun to make your way down the paths again.

Rating: 4

Perplexus is a fun toy that really appeals to both my 12 year old daughter and my 47 year old husband. I wanted something other than video games for my daughter, so I stocked up on mind games (i.e., Mastermind, Chess, etc). This was a good purchase. It is a bit difficult for my 6 year old to manipulate; however, it is an engaging toy and I'm sure that eventually she will be able to figure it out. Fun toy, all around.

Exceptionally fun toy! Everyone at the house on Christmas morning was clamoring to have a turn and once each person got it, they wouldn't want to give it up to the next player. The only recommendation that I would have with the toy is that the numbers should be stamped in color. It is VERY difficult to see the numbers for following the path, although, you can sort of see where the next path is coming anyway. It would just be a little easier if the numbers were more visible. Otherwise, VERY FUN!

Rating: 5

I picked up the Perplexus after reading the article about the inventor of this gadget in Make magazine. After over a week of nearly constant play, I have come to the realization that this is probably the coolest thing I have bought in the last decade. I brought it to work with me, and sparked an almost instant love for it in four grown men. By its very nature the ball seems easy, and it is... at first. I still have not beaten it, though I must admit that currently I almost only play it while on breaks at work. I have also taken the time to look over your website and I am fascinated by several other products you carry and may be buying other things as time goes on. Five stars, and two thumbs up!

You can enjoy toy at several levels. One of our kids stuck with this for hours, trying many different options.

Perplexus Puzzle Ball

This was one of many gifts to a puzzle-loving family this Christmas and it hasn't had any rest since! My 45 year-old husband and my 9 year-old son have been giving it quite a work-out and even our four year-old son is getting the hang of it. This is a colorful, attractive, intriguing toy that is easy enough to understand and get a start at that it will entrap nearly anyone who picks it up. Yet, it is challenging enough for the fellows that delight in announcing every additional "number" that they succeed. Two days after its appearance in the house and no one has finished it yet! This is quite an achievement. I think that there should be more on the packaging about the inventor and his beautiful wooden perplexus sculpture, but that's just me.

Thoroughly perplexed by Perplexus? No worries- we'll keep fun on track! We guided our customer in the use of this product. Please contact us if any Fat Brain Toy leaves you wondering why it's so a-mazing in the first place.

Perplexus is a holiday gift that we have sent to our grandson who lives in Alaska. I am sure we will hear either from him or from his mother how well he enjoyed it.

This toy was introduced to my son by his therapist to assist in his focus and concentration challenges. He will play with it for up to an hour at a time trying to move the marble through all 3 mazes. Even the older kids are enjoying it and they are challenging one another to time trials!

Unique, fun but very challenging
Posted 1/4/2010
Rating: 4

Saw this in a specialty store here in town and decided to go ahead and buy it. Very unique, I have never encountered anything quite like it. It will try your patience....considering there are 100 barriers I have no idea how anyone could make it to the end without the ball falling off the path but my hat off to anyone that can. As some reviews I read mentioned, the numbers that label each barrier are very hard to see unless you are in the right light, however since the path the ball takes makes sense this likely is not much of an issue except for the first few tries. Definitely recommended for those that have the patience and determination, give it a try!

Really Challenging (in a GOOD way!)
Posted 1/22/2011 by Heather Fisher
Rating: 5

This was a gift for my 7 year old son for Christmas. He REALLY enjoys it. He loves problem solving challenges and this really fits that category. He hasn't been able to complete the entire puzzle yet but what he really likes is that the 100 sections are divided so he can start in one of three sections. He has mastered steps 1-27 so he can start at 28 to perfect that section rather than having to do the whole first part everytime. He took it to school for show and tell and ALL of the kids wanted to try it. All of the other adults spent time playing with it over the holidays too! My 5 year old did find it to be a little frustrating, though!

My 7 year old son received this for Christmas and he loves it. It's difficult but he still plays with it often. It gives him a good challenge. His dad and I play with it as well, and can't seem to solve it either! That doesn't make us get frustrated with it, though - we still try! I would definitely recommend it. The only con is that the plastic is flexible and I'm afraid it's going to get busted.

My 6 y/o daughter received this for Christmas. Over the next several days, Perplexus became an almost obsessive game for parents and children alike. Even while playing other games, Perplexus will be picked up and played during off turns. We keep the original Perplexus as well as Perplexus Twist on our family room tables for easy access. It is even fun to watch the progress and accomplishments of others while you wait your turn. Highly recommended.

Note from mother of 6 yr old grandson who received Perplexus as a gift: Sweet lovely Granny and dear Bill, Thank you both for coming yesterday – it was such fun! I thought you’d like to know that the Perplexus is a HUGE hit. I wasn’t sure he’d be into it, but he’s spent all afternoon fooling with it, and he figured it out and got the little ball where it’s supposed to go a few times, and could not be more pleased with himself – it is quite the deal. Thank you so much for such a neat gift!

When my 6 year old granddaughter opened the box and removed the globe, she was suddenly and immediately absorbed by it. As the adults in the room attempted to engage her in conversation, she was concentrating so completely on the perplexus that she tuned us all out. The only thing that pulled her away from it was the offer of chocolate birthday cake!

Mostly Good
Posted 1/13/2013 by Stephen Kuch - RELATIVE
Rating: 4

I bought this for myself. The quality of it seems a bit lower than ones I've played with before; the plastic seems cheaper, the obsticals seem a bit more fragile and touchy. It's hard to explain. Alos, there is one spot (obstical 26) where it goes under a bit of a green ledge, and it often gets stuck there, holding even to a point of fully turning the unit 90 degrees to the side or upside down. After multiple efforts, we have gotten it out, and the stuckness seems to have lessened, but is still there. Again, cheaper quality it seems. Everything else is great. Nice little stand for it is useful and a good additive, the game itself is terrific - not too easy, but not too hard! Great conversational piece and very attention-catching for guests. It is a 1-person-at-a-time game, so that's a slight drawback, but everyone will be wanting to take their shot at this fun, colorful challenge. This was an excellent buy, worth every dollar, and will probably buy more for friends.

This was a 6th birthday present for my grandson (yesterday). He had tried it at a friend's house and in a store and couldn't put it down. The only reason I can't say that now is that he is currently obsessed with building a complicated lego creation that he also got for his birthday. Once he finishes that, I am sure he will return to trying to master the Perplexus.

I got the Perplexus for my 6-year-old son and he totally loved it! As do the adults around him! Initially nobody put it down for long until we managed to get the ball through the entire course once. After that my son wasn't quite so obsessed with it, but a year later, he still plays with it frequently. We just got another one for a little friend of his and by all accounts, he won't put it down either :) It's the perfect gift for puzzle/game loving children!

..my 4.5 year-old son often has a few 10-15 minute stints per day on this toy, as does his mum and dad. Of course it requires patience, focus and a steady hand to reach the end - which you may have or acquire during attempts - but you have three starting points to choose from, along the same course, to suit your nerves. Irresistible fun for a wide age range.

Great Gift for Grandson
Posted 7/21/2013 - GRANDPARENT
Rating: 5

Our six-year-old grandson loved this toy when we gave it to him during his visit with us last week. He likes to be challenged and is persistent enough to keep working on this test of his dexterity and reflexes. Perplexus is a self-contained toy so he could play with it anywhere with no worry about losing pieces and parts. He took it in the car and had it in his back pack so he could play with it on the long plane ride home. It was such a hit that I just bought the Perplexus Rookie for our almost four-year-old grandnephew who will be visiting next week.

It was a Christmas gift for my 10 year old Grandson who loves that kind of stuff. His Dad grabbed it before he even got a chance to try it!!! Everyone just loved it but I still haven't had a chance to try it but will soon (I hope) There weren't really explicit directions. They didn't realize that you had to follow the #'d path. I read that on the outside of the box before I wrapped it. Logan pretty much destroyed the box taking it out so I had to tell them how to do it.

The quality of the material is excellent and the design of the toy is phenomenal. Once you pick it up, you can't put it down. I first saw it at my cousin's house on Christmas day. It was a gift for his 8 year old grandson. The whole time I was there the adults were playing with it. There were so many people wanting to play it that I never got a chance to, so when I went home I looked it up on the internet and purchased one for myself. I took it to my son's house and my 8 year old grandson immediately started playing with it and never put it down except to eat dinner. I left it at my son's house so my grandkids could play with it (my son & daughter-in-law too), but I am going to order another one to have all to myself.

My 7 yr oldson got a gift certificate for Christmas from his uncle, we looked at the website & he saw the rocket launcher and immediately wanted that toy but I looked a little further and thought this would be good for his hand/eye coordination and give him something different - so I ordered this one instead and it took a few times for him to try it but once he got it, he loved it! It's nice to see them want to play something other than video games!

We gave this to our 7 year old at our extended family Christmas. She loved it and wouldn't put it down. When she did put it down, one of her older cousins (23 years old) picked it up and played with it for 45 minutes and thought it was the "coolest toy he has seen." There were a group of kids huddled around him wanting to have their turn to play it. Overall, it was a big hit for all ages.

We love playing with both the Perplexis Epic as well as the Perplexis Original. The Original is more colorful and easier to follow. The Epic is very challenging. Both are so much fun and addicting! I love that the paths are numbered so you can keep track of how far you get. It truly is so much fun. Out of all the electronic games my family has, we continue to play with the Perplexis. I am planning on buying these as Christmas gifts for my nephews and niece next year! My son also tried playing in the car and laughed everytime we hit a bump. He made it a challenge to stay on track.

I have 5 kids. I knew one of them would like it. I figured they'd all come to it sooner or later as one began to play the other ones would pick it up and that is what is happening. It doesn't need to be recharged or plugged in or downloaded... it is portable to the max. It's a fun not complicated toy that challenges just enough to keep interest and teaches a skill of movement, hand eye coordination. It is sturdy and built well so it won't break easily (love that!) It doesn't have small parts to lose (everything is enclosed in the ball).... it teaches, it's fun and it's easy enough that each of my little ones can play with it and it's complex enough that my older kids love it too.

Focused frustration
Posted 12/27/2012 by Kevin Kiefaber - EDUCATOR
Rating: 4

This is a great hands on toy that many folks with many different types of skills can get very hooked on. This was the most popular toy at our house this Christmas. I'm a school counselor and I'm hoping my kids at school who struggle to focus in class will be able to focus on this. Based on my family's response, I'm very optimistic. It can be very frustrating if you keep making the same mistake over and over again, but it also has the option to start over at three different points in what is essentially a 3D labyrinth. A fascinating toy!

I bought two as Christmas presents, one for my grandson and one for my nephew, both eight years old. Not only did the boys love them but all the adults loved them, too. And the younger kids wanted a turn. I'm not entirely sure how well it will hold up for the long term as the clear outer shell doesn't seem to be particularly sturdy. The framework does feel solid. How to get started wasn't immediately obvious to everyone but once that was explained all knew what to do next. Overall, though, this toy was a big hit.

Rating: 5

I am choosing my rating based on what I know will be true in a few weeks, as I know this recipient very well....but at this point (the day after Christmas), here is my review: Since this was listed for age 6+, I bought it for my almost 7-yr-old granddaughter, and I’m sure she will love it after she has the time to settle down after Christmas. (She had both sets of grandparents present with lots of gifts...) However, her mother was fascinated with it, and is determined to master it, and I’m guessing her dad will love it as well, when he discovers it. I (age 65) also tried it...loved it, and will need to buy one for myself, master it, and then pass it on to my husband. I also know my son and daughter-in-law will accept the challenge, although their 10-mo son will need to grow into it. It’s looking as if I need to purchase at least two more...OH, and then there are friends who would love it...Wonderful toy puzzle for the family...!!!

Rating: 5

We started with the smaller simpler Perplexus and now graduated to this one. Not only does our 6 year old son play with this, but everyone, including Grandma plays with it also (who is better than Mommy!). Our son and Grandma have the best time. It's a nice quiet game, great for the car, rainy days, or a break after homework time. I prefer this over video games any day (which we don't have anyways). It is challenging in the sense that you have to coordinate with your hands and eyes in order to get the ball along the track without falling off. I will buy again for gifts.

Perplexus is Perfectus
Posted 12/24/2012 by David Garlich
Rating: 5

The self contained puzzle is a wonderful continuous challenge. The increasing difficulty of the course, and the multiple starting points make this learning toy impossible to put down. It was purchased for an 8 year old grandson. After a few unsuccessful attempts to negotiate the courses, he said "This is impossible", but shortly after was proud to say "I did it". There are several hundred tasks to complete, and each task is a little more challenging. His parents were as intrigued by the challenge, and the Perplexus became the "challenge of the day". Highly recommend this item for young boys and adults, male and female.

My son is nine and became frustrated with it quickly. He did seem to like it though and I am sure will continue to play with it at different times. By the way, my son is an excellent tester of toys, should you ever need a particular toy tested. He enjoys toys and games and is not a child who has to be playing with an electronic gadget all the time.

My granddaughter noted that she has one at school, so it was not "new" for her. I anticipate that when we have time tomorrow it will be interesting for her if for no other reason than that her Grandaddy will be playing with it!

I was worried with giving this gift to a video game obsessed child. He really loved it and wouldn't put it down !!!

Entertainment for All Ages

Toy was given to a 6-year-old, but it was more popular with older kids and the adults couldn't put it down. Since it appears to be made for younger people, adults won't likely buy it for themselves - but once it's in their hands, they love it.

I bought this for my 6 year old girl :) She loves playing with it; of course that due to her age, I told her that in order to get better she needs practice. She loves it!!!

I bought this for my seven year old. My 14 year old cousin, 32 year old brother, and 50 year old uncle were fighting for a turn. No one could put it down. I'm buying the next level up for my cousin's birthday next week.

38 people in the house on Christmas Day and this was played by the most people! Very enjoyable! It never got set down for long and someone picked it up again to play. It requires some quiet focused energy.

Did not attract my 6 year old

My 6 year old grandson barely plays with it. I thought that since he's smart and loves his ipad and iphone that he would love a challenging game like this, but he doesn't seem interested.

I bought this for my nephew who is 9 and my daughter who is 13. Both of this kids love it. I would much rather have them be entertained by a product such as this instead of a mindless video game!

Lots of Fun

My son has Asperger's Syndrome and the Perplexus is perfect for him! He loves a challenge and toys that he can play with on his own. Perplexus is both. Our dentist actually recommended it for him and I am so glad she did.

Great stimulus

This is great for any child, but especially a child that needs sensory stimulus in their play. Adds wonderful diversity to a world that can quickly become overwhelming or just boring too quickly.

I gifted this puzzle to a 9 year old girl for her birthday and she claimed it was the best toy she had received that day! Her mother had to pry her away from the puzzle because she's become obsessed with it. I truly happy to have heard that and plan to gift one to my kid as well when his birthday comes along.

My grandson won't put this one down! I have to almost physically take it away from him. I have to say I am almost as hooked as he is on this 3D maze. Love it!

This toy is fun for all - adults enjoy it, too. And the 4 year old younger brother enjoys spinning it around.

this is a gift for my grandson for christmas, so can't give any feedback until after Holiday but it looked kind of challenging for a 6 year old but maybe only challenging for old Grandma

Perplexingly fun for adults!
Posted 9/9/2013 by KindergartenMom - RELATIVE
Rating: 5

I got this toy for my 5-year-old--but she's definitely too young for it. It's not really FOR 5-year-olds, so keep that in mind. A lot of times my daughter enjoys toys for older kids, but this one take a combination of skills--perseverance, steady hands, thinking in 3-D, planning--that are just too much for a little kid. BUT it is completely fun for me as an adult. I play with this thing several nights a week to unwind. It's very therapeutic--the world just falls away and sometimes I just burst out laughing at a clever twist in the puzzle. I want to try all the various perplexus puzzles now. I love the feel of the rolling ball and I love the 3-D nature of the puzzle. It's fun!!!

It looks like fun...I am giving it to my Godchild for Christmas so I don't want to take it out and play with it--risking tearing the box. Therefore, I don't have much of a review, except to say that I meant to get the Rookie for him. I guess he'll grow into it:)
