Perplexus Creator Michael McGinnis Explains That Toy Design Contributes to the Depth of Experience

You won’t be able to put Perplexus down - though you may have trouble holding onto it. Everyone wants a chance with Perplexus.

Clearly enticing, mentally stimulating, and often wrestled over - Perplexus is a brainteaser like few others.

Turn, angle, and balance the entire puzzle ball to keep the metal sphere rolling on track. Sound easy? Maybe here and there. Though at times the obstacles in your way are sure to stump you or throw you off course. Rare is the individual who masters the maze challenge of Perplexus easily. That's why it's called Perplexus.

With twists and turns, spirals and ramps, and three different starting points – Perplexus is brainwork that doesn’t seem like work. It’s a clever, mental challenge that is at home on our conference table as it is your breakfast table. (Matt, please pass the Perplexus.)

Your brain will thank you for the boost it gets from Perplexus. Fully fortified with:

Motor Skills
Hand-eye Coordination
Spatial Thinking

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    ADD/ADHD, Autism
    "For my son with ADHD, the perplexus is a wonderful focus tool. For his older cousin living with Autism, it's a joyful point of focus, and an energy outlet."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "My son is 8, he loves to trace the movement of the ball along tracks. So I know this toy will trigger his attention. It can actually get him away from iPad for a while, get him concentrated and be patient instead of jump to vex right away. "

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    ADD/ADHD, Autism, Developmental Delay, Learning Disabilities
    "The plastic doesn't seem it will be as durable as needed with Special Needs kids. I worry about them dropping it because their dexterity is still under developed. However, it is very eye appealing, especially for autistic children "

    My 7 yr old grandson has played with this toy a lot since we purchased it 2 weeks ago. He has chosen to play Perplexus over the iPad several time. Would highly recommend

    What a fun toy
    Posted 8/4/2014 by Cheryl Hart

    I bought this for a party I was going to, knowing after I would have it for when my grandkids get older. It was a hit, they would not put it down.

    Not too easy to master, but it can be done. That's the perfect balance I look for in a game like this. If a player becomes so proficient that merely completing the puzzle begins to lack challenge, then timing the solution can become the next level of challenge.
