WHAT THE KIDS SAY
Mommy, look how high I built it this time! I can stack the circle and other shapes together to balance it higher!
WHAT ADULTS THINK
Great puzzle! Soft, lightweight and a challenge for various ages, this really has captured the attention of my daughter(F4) and older daycare kids (M6, M3) the most. They like the challenge of seeing who can stack the highest amount of blocks. The foam shapes balance well and are nice and soft and light. My younger daughter (F2) enjoyed practicing balancing the shapes on the base and never got discouraged when it fell over. It was a very fun puzzle with a lot of different ways to play and learn. We got a lot more play value and long term play out of this toy then I initially thought.
After the initial play session, my 2 1/2 year old daughter really didn't have much interest in this toy anymore. We played with it together a handful of times, but each play session was shorter than the last. I like the idea of the toy, but it just didn't capture my daughter's interests.
I love this toy!! My son (4) and daughter (2) both love it. They play it together, separately, and my husband and I enjoy playing it with them. It is quiet and keeps their attention longer than most toys. I highly recommend this toy!
My son (2) is more into puzzles, then this particular balance toy. He likes it when we play with it all together, and takes pleasure in hitting our assembly to make all the pieces fall. He just likes to destroy it when we try to show him how to assemble the forms and make the "boat" balance.
Sensory Balance toy allows child to learn agility and consequence while stacking piece by piece. How high can you stack without tipping over ! Great for one or more players. 22 pieces that are 1.5" thick.
