      My students love working with this. Someone has it in his hands every moment of the day.

      It's hard to find a toy for an older child. He really enjoyed the possibilities and the creativity that this toy offered. It challenges his mathematical side.

      This toy is very tactile and easy to assemble in its ball form. I had more fun with it when I combined it with the "y" ball pieces and tried to create something symmetrical. That required much more focus.

      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.

      Wow! What will they think of next. My grandchildren and children lobe it. Combined with the Ball of Whacks it makes for a whole new dimension of play. Super for all ages, especially the older kids.
