What’s this thing do? Well . . . nothing, really. Not without you. The ball – technically, it’s a rhombic triacontahedron – is made of 30 small plastic pyramids. They’re magnetic. And that’s where the fun comes in. Reposition two or three pyramids and it looks like a cat. Or is that a girl with earrings? Reposition a few more than you’ve got a Stegosaurus. A flying squirrel. A top. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Run out of ideas? 

Ball of Whacks consists of 30 magnetic design blocks that can be rearranged into many, many shapes. More versatile than a puzzle and lots more fun than a brain teaser. The Ball of Whacks comes with a 96-page illustrated creativity guidebook that provides you with tips, stories, exercises, and insights into the creative process. A favorite with kids, it received Creative Child Magazine’s Seal of Excellence – and creative professionals the world over.
