It has a lot of potential, and it's very versatile. It's a great creative toy. You can make art out of it. You can use it to build. The sky's the limit.
It looks sharp on the shelf. It's a great office game. It's a great gift for a game or puzzle lover or people who love doing things with their hands. I did end up giving a few as gifts after people fell in love. It has been well-received.
My only complaint is that we have one. It's a great item to have a few of.
The Ball of Whacks is a good size. It fits right in the palm of an average sized hand. I do think that the magnets holding the ball together could be slightly stronger as the ball has, on many occasions, spontaneously exploded into many pieces by giving it too hard of a squeeze.
This ball was supposed to increase my creative juices... has it? Nope. But that wasn't what I was looking for, so that selling point was moot anyway. What I do find is that it's fun, and simple, and offers up a nice distraction for guests at my desk. Sitting at my desk, just pulling one piece and letting it get "absorbed" back into the ball with the accompanying "shuck-shuck" sound is oddly soothing...
The weird part is that after ignoring it for a while and then coming back to it weeks later, i begin to dream up all kinds of weird new inventions, ideas for shows, coffee flavors...Lots of these things are bogus or impractical (in this dimension perhaps XD), but occasionally i sit and ponder while just playing with the magnetic pieces and it helps me think clearly.
The item itself doesn't hold any magical properties or really hold up well as a throw and catch toy (Ive tried throwing it up and down while lying on my couch, with messy results...) but its definitely interesting enough to hold my attention every once and a while. Makes a nice gift for an inquisitive middle-schooler or budding entrepreneur.
