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:
Perplexus 3-D Puzzle Maze
Clear acrylic sphere puzzle with a rolling ball to skillfully maneuver throughout
Flip, twist and turn the puzzle sphere to solve the puzzle
Easy to play - much more challenging to complete
Improves hand-eye coordination and spatial relations
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 6 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD,
"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: Autism
"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,
"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 "
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.
Product review of Perplexus

Purchased as a gift for seven year old boy. Loves it and so does his father who plays with it when his son is not using it. Thanks for your input when I was in the throes of purchasing a suitable gift.

The other reviews said that 5+ would play with it, but I think at 5, it was a little too hard for my nephew. However, the rest of the family, all the way through grandparent found it engaging, so I'm sure he'll pick it up again when he is ready.
