Perplexus is a marble maze game within a clear sphere that has you twisting and turning through ramps, stairs, and tunnels (to name a few features) to try to make it to the end. I thought for sure that it would be WAY to hard for LoLo (age 4.5) to try, but I found that he really enjoys playing it (not to mention he was the first to solve it...how he found a shortcut, I will never know!).
Perplexus comes in a few varieties:
-Rookie (this is the one seen below that we tested, ages 5 and up I would say)
-Epic (seriously advanced for adults)
This is one of those games that is perfect to get for the person who has everything! I ordered one for my father and my brother who both enjoy doing puzzles such as Sudoku and Crosswords, plus they just look so cool to put on your desk to entertain co-workers!
Perplexus is our current TOP TOY PICK for Christmas 2011!
