It’s getting closer to Turkey Day, and you know what that means, it’s getting closer to Christmas!  And Misadventures in Baby Raising has the hook up on all of the best gift ideas for everyone from grandma and grandpa to the youngest member of the family!


In 2011 it’s all about electronics—kids today are so tech savvy that electronic toys are a part of their lives even before they can walk!  Needless to say, it’s rather difficult to find toys that your children love, are interesting enough to keep their attention and don’t light up, speak 3 languages and come equipped with touchscreen controls!  That’s why I am always so thrilled when I find a toy that my children love that requires more than the touch of a button to operate—like PERPLEXUS!


You’re probably wondering, “Um, what’s a PERPLEXUS?”…right?  Well, that’s a good question and the best way I can describe PERPLEXUS is by saying that it’s a big ball of fun—no batteries required!


PERPLEXUS is a game where players must maneuver a small marble around a maze inside a transparent sphere.  PERPLEXUS takes everything you love about traditional flat mazes and turns it on its head because unlike traditional mazes with one path, PERPLEXUS contains of maze of challenging tracks with 100 barriers, providing players  with an endless supply of mazes and barriers to try!  Players can choose their track and must then use gravity to shift, flip and twist the sphere to guide the marble to its destination! 


PERPLEXUS is also a great tool to assist in child development allowing children to practice their fine motor skills, dexterity and hand-eye coordination!  It’s size makes it super portable and it doesn’t require batteries—now that, is every mother’s dream toy!


When I found out that I had the chance to feature PERPLEXUS in our holiday gift guide I was super excited, because this toy (it’s actually more of a game than a toy)  is beyond awesome!  And though the PERPLEXUS totally kicks enough butt that your kids will LOVE it you better buy two (at around $20 that’s definitely doable) because you are going to want to play this and your children are not going to share! 


Top 3 Reasons To Add PERPLEXUS to your holiday list!!!


3.  It’s great for all ages from 6 to 96 (and beyond)!PERPLEXUS_toy

2.  It provides hours upon hours of fun!  This is not a toy that you’ll figure out (or be able to get cheats for) easily, it’s one that requires lots of patience, concentration and time to master!

1.  Don’t your children already have enough battery operated toys on their holiday list?  Because seriously the PERPLEXUS runs on kid power—gotta love that!
