A playful new way to enhance creativity. The sheer pleasure of play leads to exploration and endless discovery with this kinetic toy.

A ball shape formed by 30 "Y" pieces held together magnetically form an icosahedron. Beyond a cool geometric orb, combine the Y magnetic pieces in endless ways to form amazing designs.

Because the magnets attract and repel on different surfaces, putting Roger Von Oech's Y Ball together is addictive and challenging.

Even more fun is the fact that the magnet toy's pieces subtly shift and slide- often choosing a better connection than the one you first initiated. Just like in the fascination of a great experiment, the unplanned results are often better than the strategized ones.

Enhance creativity and initiate problem solving with Y Ball. The Y Ball is excellent in the classroom, therapy sessions, and pain management. It provides a valuable tool for distraction and refocusing the mind. This tactile, sensory toy rewards the auditory and tactile senses with a satisfying "click" as Y-shaped pieces attach.

Let yourself grow in creative play. Connect right & left sides of the brain for a thinking/creative experience. Expand your logic capabilities with first focus on abstract shapes, then try geometric shapes!

    Very creative product
    Posted 1/22/2014 by Lori Lamoreaux

    My 13-year-old son got a Ball of Whacks and loved it so much that he wanted the X-Ball and Y-Ball as well. All three toys are very creative and intuitive, and even his younger brothers like to play with them. It's very satisfying to be able to put them together in different ways.

    This toy is intuitively obvious and the ball design practically builds itself due to the nature of the magnets. That makes the builder feel successful. It combines well with the pieces of the "x" and "star" balls.
