Perplexus Original Maze Ball...Giveaway!

I came across the PERPLEXUS Original Maze Ball online and immediately thought it looked like fun. With all of the interlocking tracks and bright colors, it seemed like something kids would gravitate toward. (Turns out we as adults play with it just as much!) Perplexus is a maze game where players have to manuveur a small silver marble through a number of challenging tracks contained inside a clear sphere. It slightly reminded me of a modern version of the Labrynth game from when I was a child, but way more intense. Because it's a 3D maze, you have to figure out how to move the sphere to guide the marble down the correct tracks without it falling off. The age recommendation is for 6 and up. Originally I thought it was silly to try to give this to a six year old, as I was having so much trouble with it myself. Then we let our neighbor's six year old daughter use it and swiftly felt like amateurs! I couldn't believe how great she was at it and how long it kept her entertained. It would be an excellent addition to family game night.
Because of it's size, it's easily portable and  a convenient travel game for vacations. (No batteries required either!) One of the benefits that Perplexus Maze Ball claims is that it assists in child development, allowing children to exercise their motor and dexterity skills, as well as improve their their hand-eye coordination. I don't know the research behind it, but it totally makes sense to me after playing this game myself.
