    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "The obvious spinning quality to the rattleback rock is what my son enjoys. I like it because he can easily spin it, and I can show him how it spins the opposite way than I originally spun it. We can spin it on different surfaces (table, floor, on a hardcover book) and he likes watching it spin and looking at the color of it too. And his siblings can spin it with him and enjoy it with him in that way."

    Information about Rattleback
    Posted 4/10/2013 by Holly Olsen

    It's really cool at first, but then (as with just about anything) the novelty wears off. It becomes something that the kids will want to show to friends for a while, then move. I'm still glad that we bought it. It does make the kids curious and wonder - makes them ask questions, and that's what we want.

    Review of Rattleback
    Posted 4/8/2012 by Jim Francis

    This is a fun toy that I carry in my pocket everywhere. It serves as a conversation starter with strangers and always amazes people everywhere. I show it a lot and order extras as gifts.

    My son enjoys the rattleback rock. He likes spinning it and watching it go round and round. I like that it instills curiosity as it turns the opposite way you turned it.

    The adults visiting at Christmas were more intrigued with this than the boys. It took some thoughtful discussion to figure out "what was happening."
