My 8 yr old got this for xmas, and because he has such a great imagination, he was blown away by the ingenuity and endless hours of creativity culled from this seemingly unassuming product. Delivers hours of delight, exceeded my greatest expectations!

-lovely_vel@yahoo.com quote

We purchased this for our 8 y.o. but he doesn't get much chance to play with it because everyone else keeps stealing it from him (even the 3 y.o.)! It's great to try and create the shapes shown in the provided booklet (along with other great tips about life), but we have more fun creating our own 3-d sculptures. The best part for the kids is dropping the creation on the floor and watching the pieces scatter, then picking them up with the other (magnetic) pieces which forms a whole new creation in itself. It will be one of those toys you could leave in an office on your desk as an ice-breaker, or leave it out on a coffee table to be picked up from time to time. It will get played with.

Wack-A-Ball is more than a book!

on 1/9/2008

Wack-A-Ball is more than a book! It's a creativity stretcher. The book suggests some items that you can create and explains a lot about the thinking behind the creation but I think the best use of your Wack-A-Ball is your own free creativity. Have fun! Try something you haven't thought of before. I think my 5 year old neice got more out of it in her first half hour than I did in an entire day - after all - she had no preconceived ideas to stop her.
