Comments about Product: I was fascinated by the Perplexus, but my nephew, who was 6, found it too difficult and frustrating. Even his parents and the other adults eventually lost interest in it because they couldn't navigate the ball without it falling off track constantly.
Comments about Product: I bought this for my nephews for Christmas, they vary in age from 4-11 and are all obsessed with video games. I thought I'd try Perplexus because it reminded me of a toy that I had when I was younger. A few weeks after Christmas, my sister-in-law informed me that it was the hit of Christmas! The boys love the challenge of it and have little tournaments and time each other to see who finishes the fastest. It's great too because it needs no batteries and doesn't make any noise! The adults even love it! I actually bought two more... one for our house and one to keep at grandma and grandpa's. The only bad thing I could say about it is the outer plastic shell isn't a real thick plastic, so if it gets thrown around, I could see it breaking. Older kids know not to throw it, but to a toddler, a ball is a ball!
