Howdy everyone. I hope that you all are having a beautiful week. As time grows closer by the moment to Christmas it is time to start thinking of what to get everyone. Today I would like to share with you a product that happens to be not only fun but challenging. FlipStir Puzzle is a new twist in 3D puzzle gaming; this patented design captivates young and young-at-heart! Simply pull the wand back, shake the puzzle to scramble the pieces; then just use the wand, gravity, and your own ingenuity to solve the puzzle and reveal the artwork. And since FlipStir is self-contained, it makes it easy for parents to clean up without searching for any lost pieces.
For this posting, I received the Solar System FlipStir and must say that I enjoyed putting it together.All of the pieces of the puzzle are in a cylinder which is nice so that your child does not lose the pieces. Simply shake, stir and move the pieces around till the image is correct. FlipStir also aids in the development of hand-eye coordination and motor skill development, which makes it great for children with special needs.
FlipStir offers two puzzle levels 1 and 2. Level 1 has simple puzzle images and rectangular pieces. Level 2 is slightly more difficult with more complex images and curvy pieces. The Solar System is a level 2 and the pieces are curved and a bit more challenging to get together in the correct position. FlipStir has earned many awards this year and last year including the following.
The award-winning FlipStir puzzle has earned:
- 2015 Creative Child Magazine “Puzzle of the Year”
- 2015 Seal of Approval from The National Parenting Center
- 2015 Family Choice Awards Winner
- 2014 Tillywig “Brain Child” award
- 2014 Creative Child Magazine “Game of the Year – Puzzle Games Category”
- Toy Man News & Reviews – The Toy Man “Seal of Approval,” The Toy Man “Award of Excellence,” The Toy Man “Editor’s Choice,” The Toy Man “Award of Recognition,” The Toy Man “S.T.E.M. Award,” The Toy Man “Mom Approved” Award
In all, I think this would be a great gift this holiday season or any time of the year. Not only is this puzzle fun to put together but it is also helping with improved hand-eye coordination. FlipStir is currently available in four unique designs: Rainbow Pencils (Level 1), Tyrannosaurus Rex(Level 1), Solar System(Level 2), and Statue of Liberty(Level 2). All are available at select specialty retail locations and online for $24.95 at http://enlivenze.com/3-flipstir-puzzles
