We recently discovered a Canadian toy distributing company called PlaSmart. Introduced to the market in 2003, this toy company has grown rapidly into a world concern, distributing on 5 continents and in over 60 countries! Their product line focuses on smart, simple toys: they avoid electronic toys and toys that are difficult to understand or operate. From what we've seen of PlaSmart's toys, they fit our requirements for longevity - both in durability and in ways of use.
Over the next few weeks, we will be featuring 4 different great, products from PlaSmart's line - and each time there will be a giveaway for you, our fabulous readers, as well!! Keep your eyes peeled! :) We're excited to share these toys with you and we're sure you'll love them too!
Perplexus. Aptly named, this toy certainly has me perplexed!! This single-player "maze" game is designed for children ages 6 and up, and this is very accurate (although, I'm not sure where that leaves me!) Perplexus also exists in "Rookie" (or ages 4 and up) and "Epic" (ages 8 and up). The maze route takes place inside a transparent ball, and as you roll and turn the ball around, you can guide (or not!) the ball along the various tracks and around and through the increasingly difficult obstacles.
- No batteries!! and it doesn't make noise either!
- It's easy to take anywhere and is self-contained.
- The user really has to focus in on the maze, making the Perplexus a great cool-down tool (and our son chooses this when he needs some retreat time).
- There are no small pieces to lose or worry about with small children around the house.
Perplexus is available at toy and book stores - check the store locator on the website for details of a location near you.
