I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I am always looking for games and toys that will really grab my girls' attention. Sometimes it is just nice to have a toy that does not need a battery or cord. I have found that everyone in the family is entertained with TrueBalance. Designed and developed in Europe this unpredictable coordination game is now available for kids (and parents) here in the US. It is easy to play but hard to solve.
It's got the feel of a classic toy with a twist -- actually magnetic discs -- that require stacking with steady hand-eye coordination. Here's the company's video demo so you can see it in action.
There are no real instructions or rules...just use a mix of logic, engineering and trial and error. Like many other games this one is way harder than you think it will be!
There is real science behind the design. TrueBalance began in Europe as a medical device to improve focus and fine motor skills! The various magnetic discs rotate independently making this a fun and always-unpredictable game that can be played solo or with a group. It looks a bit silly but grownups and kids love the feel and the challenge of it!
This wooden toy is a great introduction to S.T.E.M. concepts young students may already be learning in the classroom. Big Sis here often has a hard time concentrating but she has nothing but serious focus when playing with TrueBalance. For some extra fun, use a timer to compete with friends against the clock.
Available conveniently on Amazon for speedy delivery. Makes a fun stocking stuffer, gift for a teacher or to bring to a holiday party as a hostess gift (I am not kidding on this one as everyone can play). Test your skills with this unpredictably fun coordination game!
