This is a fun game for kids. It has different levels of play, so even preschoolers like my four-year-old son can play. My first grader brings it to school, and it's always a hit with her classmates. This is intended for solo play, so if you have more kids at home you may want to buy more than one. It's great for road trips as well. Highly recommend!
"An Epochal Innovation Breakthrough!" - By Donald Mitchell (Thanks for Providing My Reviews over 127,000 Helpful Votes Globally)
If you only employ one creativity-enhancing resource for the rest of your life, make that resource the Ball of Whacks!
Breakthroughs in effective creativity-inspiring methods seldom occur. Most "new" methods are simply restatements or reshapings of ideas that flourished among the ancient Greeks (such as Heraclitus, a favorite source for Mr. von Oech) or before. Those who are familiar with the earlier work usually don't gain much from the newer approaches. The Ball of Whacks is a happy exception. Heraclitus would say that you can never interact with the Ball of Whacks twice in the same way. And he would be right.
The most valuable creativity-enhancing methods I've experienced usually require having a team work together, with one of the tasks involving making little models or prototypes of creative concepts. I often find myself wishing I could have those experiences more often ... full review
"74 bars and 57 balls -- more beam sizes would be nice." - By Carl L. Gonsalves (Mountain View, California, USA)
The magnets are pretty strong, which is good.
The set we received does not contain "66 bars and 64 balls" as the current description says, however. Instead, we received 74 bars and 57 balls, for a total of 131 pieces. This is actually a better ratio than what is advertised, as everything my son and I have built ends up with a extra balls left over.
I do wish that the rods came in more than one size. The only way to make anything rigid is to construct it entirely out of equilateral triangles, which makes square structures a challenge. Some sqrt(2) (adjusted for ball diameter) beams would be a welcome addition.

"Weird wacky magnet fun" - By C. Furniss (seattle, wa United States)
After I saw this magnetic thinking putty on various gadget blogs, I knew I had to get it. I always have to have something to fiddle with on my desk at work, and thinking putty works well because I can use it like a stress ball, pull it, smoosh it, etc. The magnetic putty is WEIRD and very cool. It comes with this super strong magnet that fully absorbs into the putty after about a minute. You can also use the magnet to pull strands of the putty out of the greater mass. There's lots you can do with it, and if you're a fan of weird desk toys like I am, you'll love it.
