You'll be able to create many new shapes with the new Star-Ball. The Star-Ball consists of 32 magnetic design pieces. Pieces can be combined with other award-winning Creative Whack products for unlimited possibilities.
Take the Star-Ball Challenge: Use the polarity dots to combine the five-legged stars with the "tri" pieces to form the ball.
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 14 years of age.

MUCH harder than either the "x" or "y" balls in that the pieces each have an odd number of connections. This causes the "+" and "-" to be uneven on each piece but even on the entire set of pieces. The builder must pay attention. This puzzle doesn't build itself the way the "x" and "y" balls do. It is more of a challenge.
Review for Roger Von Oech's Star-Ball
Posted 4/13/2012 by Stephen Compton
Love the Star Ball. Not only is it fun to put together and explore different shapes, but it combines well with my other magnet toys. I like to think of myself as a play artist who uses toys to form sculptures. This is another tool to add to my tool box.
