This eye-catching, fun-to-use pen toy helps little artists and writers develop ambidextrous hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills. Durably built using three pieces of brightly colored polymer material, the center piece is a standard, pressurized ballpoint pen that pivots between the two attached parallel arms. Swing and pivot the pen into place -- or just all over the place, for fun.
Flip, twirl, and rotate the pen and arms, and the device's symmetry and evenly distributed weight ratio helps you maintain balance and motion. Once you get the swing of things, it's surprisingly addictive. With some practice, you'll soon be performing fancy tricks, aerials, and quick-flips. To help speed up your learning curve, a convenient illustrated instruction guide is also included. Recommended for children ages five and older.

Thinking beyond established knife industry practices has allowed Spyderco to introduce new innovations, including one-hand opening, serrations on a folder, and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. Spyderco remains dedicated to researching and developing improved, better-performing materials with function and reliability, and its unique cutlery line is a result of designing ergonomic, functional tools. The company puts its new products through rigorous testing prior to release, examining edge retention with a CATRA machine, looking for rust development with Q-FOG, checking the force needed to open and close a knife, and analyzing numerous other technical details.
The BaliYo is a toy that promotes ambidextrous hand/eye coordination and helps develop fine motor skills. BaliYo offers a new concept in pens, made using high-performance materials and manufacturing. It provides safe unlimited creative motion anytime, anywhere, even while sitting. Constructed from three pieces of close-tolerance polymer, the center body is a pressurized ball point pen pivoting between to two parallel arms. The positioning dynamics of the pivots allow you to swing and rotate the pen, changing its speed and force of gravity while flipping and twirling. Refined symmetry with even weight ratio (end-to-end and side-to-side) balances the pen through motion and force. With practice you can learn sophisticated moves, two-handed tricks, quick-flips, spins, aerials and how to manipulate combinations of these. Basic tricks are easy to learn, and an illustrated foldout instruction guide is included. While the BaliYo is fun for all ages, it does have a few small parts and is not for children 5 and under.
