Playing Games with the Perplexus Original 3D Maze and Perplexus Rookie

We love to play games. Whether its physical games like tag or Elefun or mental games like picture matching. So when we received our Perplexus Original and Perplexus Rookie 3D mazes from PlaSmart, the makers of the PlasmaBike and PlasmaCar, we were excited to test them out and see how far we could go!

The Perplexus Original a physical puzzle maze that you control with your hands and your wit. The sphere contains a 3-D puzzle complete with turns, twists, and drops!  And the best part is, this maze is great for kids 8-108. It's quite amusing watching an adult get stumped while a child continues to go through the maze in no time!

The Perplexus Rookie is perfect for the under 8 crowd. Built with younger kids in mind, this Rookie is great for the 4 and up crowd. But you might be surprised to see that once your 4 year old masters the Rookie, they graduate to the Original in no time while the adults are still trying to figure out the Rookie.

I absolutely love how this game promotes the fine tuning of hand-eye coordination. It makes my son think, really think, about what his next move will be and how he can keep the ball from falling off the track.

He knows how to get the ball to the starting point and from there takes off slowly to try and make sure he's gently guiding the ball instead of sending it into orbit quickly. Once he gets through the first part he usually asks for a bit of help. And I'm happy to helpfully guide his hands through a few of the tougher spots.

As you can tell, he really gets into it. You can see the look of concentration on his face as he tries to maneuver through the stairs, flips, and turns.

The Perplexus Original and Perplexus Rookie are the perfect unique gift for any child or adult. They provide hours of unplugged entertainment and keep you guessing at every turn! And while a select few will master it in no time, those of us who aren't as quick will be able to take our time trying and trying again.

The patience this game is teaching my son is priceless!

These looks so cool! I saw them the other day in the Marbles Brain Store and played with it for a bit, hehe. Fun game and I'm sure my son would love it when he's older.
