Essentially the Perplexus Rookie is a much easier and a little more refined version of the Perplexus Original.

Those experienced with the Perplexus Original will likely be turned-off by the ease of the Rookie. I played the Original a fair amount before playing the Rookie, and was personally able to complete it within my first three attempts. The Rookie is best-suited for younger children who have not spent a lot of time with the Original or Epic (and fans of Perplexus who can appreciate something different).

Here are the differences between the Rookie and the Original:
- New unique layout of obstacles with thicker, wider, and more available rails (making it easier)
- 70 Rookie obstacles vs 100 Original obstacles (though both feel about the same length)
- Bolder number markings (deeper impressions) with separate arrow markings
- Denser track layout (increasing line-of-sight difficulties)
- Only one Start point in the Rookie (Original has three Start points)
- Well-defined End point (1" diameter bubble)
- New step, tube, and slope types of obstacles
- No mechanical obstacles (like swing arm and bucket obstacles)
- No markings in the clear portion of the Rookie sphere (Original has a couple large watermarks)
- Better weight distribution in the Rookie (sphere rotates more evenly with the insides than the Original)
- Rookie Diameter: ~6-1/4" (~160mm), ~6-3/4" (~170mm) at the equator
- Original Diameter: ~7" (~175mm), ~7-5/8" (~190mm) at the equator
- Different color scheme; no painted markings (besides the "CE")

The product remains more durable than it looks like it would be. The internal structures appear to use the same material and strong mounting to the equator (though you should not be rough on it).

I got this as a gift for my children. They liked it at first but within a few days pieces of the maze had dislodged and were floating around the ball. A friend of mine to whom I recommended this product has returned two of them so far because of quality issues.

So - I think the toy is fun but they need to improve the quality.

We have the original Perplexus and our almost 3 yr old loves it. We thought he would really like a slightly easier/shorter version, and he did, but there are assembly issues. Both balls we tried had points where you could not get the ball past points where the internal pieces were attached improperly (you could see that it was a failure to fully snap two plastic parts together all the way), both in different places. It's a shame, because our son really liked it...until he would get to the defective spot and was unable to get past it.

I have purchased all three of the Perplexus toys to date (Rookie, Original, Epic) and been satisfied with 2 of the 3.

I mainly got this for our 4 year old because the Original is too tough for her. The day we got it, I didn't even open the packaging. I kept it in the box and hid it. This was a Christmas present that we bought pretty early in the year. After opening it on Christmas, I was thoroughly disappointed. I was ticked. I was mad. I never had the sense to return it because it was purchased months earlier...

The main problem was that it was poorly engineered. The silver ball was not physically able to pass obstacle 8. The track was so close to a different obstacle, the ball would not move past it. It doesn't fit.

Literally, the supposedly easiest Perplexus is and was the hardest.

I purchased this over a year ago and it still just sits there, waiting to be played up to obstacle 8... reminding me over and over to write a review on Amazon.

I'll update with a video or a pic soon.

So, go buy the other two Perplexus... not this one.

Basically this product has quality control issues and because of the way it's designed once it's broken it becomes trash. We purchased three of these maze balls, the rookie, original, and epic. 2 out of 3 have had faulty pieces fall out of place. Customer service politely said sorry nothing we can do our product is what it is. you can read their response below.

Thanks for reaching out to us.

"We're sorry to hear of the issues you've recently had with your Perplexus Original. Unfortunately, the broken internal part you mentioned wasn't made independently of the sets as a whole and, as a result, we don't have access to them, cannot send you any replacements and cannot refer you to any relevant retailer who might. Furthermore, the Perplexus is not really designed to be modified and cannot be opened, so if you were somehow able to source a new applicable track piece, you may still encounter considerable difficulty in getting it properly attached and have it function fully.

We do support a warranty of these units, but it is one that only covers issues relating to malfunctioning or defective products straight out of the pack and runs for about 30 days from the day or purchase." - Spin Master Customer Care

I hate this dang thing. Just when you think you have it figured out the ball drops off the track and you have to start over. Then the kid grabs it and is done in about five minutes. So I pick it up again and no matter how hard I try the stupid ball drops to the bottom of the sphere. So the kid picks it up and says "Here, let me show you" and is done again in just a few minutes. Stupid toy. It doesn't work. There's a trick. It's rigged. Stupid toy.
