Perplexus Original Puzzle Game for Kids and Adults (Kind of Crazy)

By Kelsey

0 from 0 review(s)

I love a good puzzle game, I had a blast trying to navigate through the Perplexus Original game this week. The metal bead inside the plastic ball is somewhat noisy but otherwise it is completely electronic free and a great portable game. I really enjoyed trying to navigate the 99 obstacles inside though I haven’t been successful yet!


Age Range: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 year olds

The Perplexus ball is wrapped in a thick/cardboard paper packaging. Once this is broken and removed you are ready to play. No setup and no fuss. Perplexus Original

The Playtime Experience

Perplexus is a game of patience and skill. The shape is round and the 99 obstacles inside are a maze of colors and ramps. They are number so you can see there really are 99 paths for that little metal ball to take. The obstacles follow every direction you can imagine so the sphere design comes in handy as you maneuver the whole unity to direct the marble through the maze. Perplexus Original Review

Things I Didn't Like

I don’t really dislike anything about this toy but the whole unit is a bit larger in size than is comfortable to hold on to. It makes maneuvering it just a little more awkward than I would prefer.

Final Note

Aside from my issues with the toy being a little on the large side, I actually really like this toy. The Perplexus Original is a great travel game that will have you scratching your head and trying your patience to get the marble through all 99 obstacles! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkDAqt0U4ps (You may also like: 33 Best Classic Toys of All-Time)
