The OBLO Puzzle Sphere is primarily about fun. But it’s educational, too. A great gift for the budding Hemingway or Picasso, this toy is designed to develop the motor skills and hand-eye coordination needed to manipulate pencils. Watch your little one get ready for a creative career in writing and drawing—or at least, help her fine-tune those important life skills. This three-dimensional tactile toy is built from a series of spheres that fit inside each other—think Russian nesting dolls—that must be deconstructed and then fit together again.
Recommended for children ages 5 and up. One sphere included.
To play: Twist the shells against the sphere’s central axis to remove each individual piece, then reassemble it in the same way.
