It's the original Hoberman toy and its now a classic and a favorite of kids and adults everywhere. It expands from 9" to 30" in diameter with a magical motion that amazes everyone that sees it. Everyone in the house should have their own, because nobody will want to share. All Spheres comes with a pulley, hardware and instructions to hang as a cool, kinetic mobile; an educational booklet about the geometry of the Sphere; and a 21 Cool Things to Do activity sheet.
Ages 4 and up.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 4 years of age.
We have a Hoberman sphere at home, and it is a hit every time my son has a play date. One of his friends just didn't want to let it go, so we purchased one for his birthday. At the party the child wanted to play with it immediately, and once it was out of the packaging, the kids were lined up, reaching and talking all at once, each eager to show what HE or SHE could do with it. They had a blast. I'm always amazed at this bc it's a sphere, right? Pretty simple, but somehow it becomes anything the children want it to be, and it seems like an adventure to them.
Our neighbor had this toy and my girls (7 and 4) played with it creatively. I bought one and of course they both wanted to play with it at the same time. I went back the next day and bought another one. We had friends over (boys 6 and 4), they played both played with the spheres for a long time. The 6 year old told me he wants one for his birthday. I will be buying my 3rd for his birthday gift and probably a 4th for my nephew turning 4 yrs old soon.
They play with these in a variety of ways. They toss it in the air, watch it get bigger then smaller as it hits the ground. They can "wear" it as a dress, or helmet. The girls can actually sit inside it and play with other toys, while inside. They figured out how to keep it big by sitting in it. They really do love it. It is a good imaginative toy.
Review for Hoberman Sphere - Rings
Posted 12/27/2012 by Judith DuBose
I purchased them for my two adult daughters to use as instructional tools in chorus rehearsals. They loved them. All the adults as well as the kids at our Christmas gathering had to take a turn playing with them. Amazing eye-popping fun.
