    We've collected valuable feedback from our customers on how this item is being used by children with special needs in hopes of providing guidance for other special needs caregivers. Click here to view these "Special Perspectives"...

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Aspergers, Autism, Sensory Integration Disorder
    "This gift is perfect for an Aspergers child! My brilliant 8 year old nephew was so excited to receive this he didn't want to open any more gifts. He has other Perplexus puzzles and will often use them before bed to wind down. They capture his focus and allow him to concentrate for a long time while having tons of fun. Fat Brain Toys will be my first stop when shopping for him in the future because of the awesome special needs lists. So wonderful!"

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "I purchased this product (in addition to the other Perplexus products) for the students in my Academic Resource class who are all identified on the autism spectrum. The students, ages 12-14, enjoy puzzles, especially those with a strong visual component. The Perplexus-Epic provides the visual stimulation they need and allows them to focus on solving a single task. They enjoy the challenge of the twists and turns and the game is non-competitive, except with themselves. They can play independently, but there is almost always someone else looking on and encouraging the player thus increasing their social interactions. "

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "My son has ADHD and this toy allows him to spend his free time hyper-focusing on this fun activity. He craves it. My other son is not special needs and neither is my husband and they both love the toy too. They seem to be able to put it down easier than my son with ADHD."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "Great tool for especially gifted young man (8, Aspergers) with advanced math, engineering, spacial interests. Simple enough to not require parental assistance. Complex enough to hold his interest for hours. "

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    ADD/ADHD, Aspergers
    "I actually bought this for my office and decided to keep it for my autistic grandson."

    This mind working ball of fun is just awesome!! My son and nephew love it so much and my husband and I ask for a turn whenever they take a break. It's so fun to have to move the ball around and try to figure out the different ways that it goes. This one is definitely a lot more challenging than the original perplexes, but we have all mastered that one. So this is a great new challenge!

    A rating of Perplexus - Epic
    Posted 2/11/2015

    We bought this for our 11 y/o and he really enjoys it. His grandmother bought him something very similar but a different brand and he solved it rather quickly. Perplexus Epic is more challenging but not frustrating. He doesn't play with it constantly but when he does bring it out he works on it for a long period of time. I'm definitely glad that I went with the epic over the regular one considering how quickly he solved the other puzzle ball.

    When playing with the easier version that my kids had, my dad couldn't put it down. He looked to love this one, but the ball seemed too big for the hole between #19-20. We're going to exchange it for another, and assume the fun will continue. Its great as it has a 'play in' entry point around #34 -- so we still moved on from the sticking point.
