A playful new way to enhance creativity. The sheer pleasure of play leads to exploration and endless discovery with this kinetic toy.

A ball shape formed by 30 "X" pieces held together magnetically form a skeletal icosidodecahedron. Beyond a cool geometric orb, combine the X magnetic toy pieces in endless ways to form amazing designs.

Because the magnets attract and repel on different surfaces, it's addictive and challenging. Magnetic pieces subtly shift and slide - often choosing a better connection than the one you intended. Unplanned results are often better than the strategized ones!

Enhance creativity initiate problem solving, stimulate playfulness, and add fun. The magnetic X Ball is excellent in the classroom, therapy sessions, and pain management. It's a tool for distraction and refocusing the mind.

Let yourself grow in creative play. Expand your logic capabilities with first focus on abstract shapes, then try geometric shapes… combine the X Ball and Von Oech's Y Ball components for incredible constructions.

    My grandson is 4, very bright and has excellent fine motor skills, he loves this and has mastered all the possible combos in the book. I am going to purchase some of the other magnetic balls, he spends hours every day with the one he has.

    Love this toy! This is our second.

    These originally showed up as Christmas gifts in our house via Grandpa. They immediately engaged my children. They are still playing with them. It is so popular that my son wanted his own set so he wouldn't have to use his brother's. We love this toy. It sits out on our coffee table all the time.

    I gave it to a 13 year old and he immediately took an interest. But, at least the initial, most obvious way of putting it together he did easily and quickly.
