Both the original red Ball of Whacks and the Multi-Colored Ball of Whacks are comprised of 30 pyramid pieces that click together with 180 rare earth magnets. The Multi-Colored Ball takes creative building blocks a step further. The Ball of Whacks comes with a 96-page illustrated creativity guidebook that provides you with tips, stories, exercises, and insights into the creative process.
In the multi-color version, six bright colors transform the Ball, adding another level of engaging play skills. Players are challenged to reconstruct the Ball-shaped puzzle with no two same-colored pieces touching anywhere — not even at the points.
Once you have mastered that brainteaser, it’s time to get creative.
The Multi-Colored Ball of Whacks earned Level 5 Ratings (highest) from The Toy Man for: Critical Skills Development, Educational Value, Fun Factor, Innovation, and Marketing Value.
