Thenewtoy.com is a whole new twist on toy buying. Rather than focus on huge selection, they focus on one new toy each week! TheNewToy goes into detail on each toy they feature with lots of high resolution photos and video of the toy and of the toy being kid tested! You can sign up for their weekly email on the feature toy.
What caught my eye about TheNewToy, was one of their featured toys- Perplexus! This toy originally appealed to me because it is completely self-contained and I thought it would be handy to have for road trips to my mom's house! Perplexus is distributed by Plasmart and is intended for ages 6 and up. My daughter is only 5 but I thought she could probably handle Perplexus because she is great at puzzles. She was really excited when we got it and she wanted me to teach her how to play it right away. I was busy cooking so she started to figure it out herself. It kept her busy the whole time I was cooking dinner and when dinner was finally finished she said, "Already? But I'm not ready!" Now that is a good toy!
Perplexus is a basically a self-contained sphere maze. The player maneuvers a small, steel ball through 100 twists, turns, and barriers on their way from start to finish. It’s a 3 dimensional maze that is completely encapsulated in a clear, plastic sphere that must be shifted, flipped, and twisted to guide the ball to the goal. It does NOT require any batteries and there are you can't loose any pieces! Another cool thing about Perplexus is that it is a really fun way to improve fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Even by husband loves Perplexus! My daughter and my husband argue over whose turn it is! My husband said, "Wow, this would make a great Christmas present." In short, Perplexus got their seal of approval.
