Addict A Ball - The Addictive 3D Maze Puzzle
that Will Drive You Crazy!
Meet Addict A Ball, the crazy puzzle ball that has been driving us all crazy this past few weeks. Originally it was sent for Chloe, my 13 year old to review but it's become quite a novelty in our house. It's not just Chloe who's been playing with it, Lily, Ryan, Daddy and I have all been having a go. None of us have cracked it yet but that hasn't stopped us trying.
The Addict A Ball 3D maze puzzle contains 138 numbered stages of spirals, drops, swinging arms, flips and slides. You can choose one of three different start positions before you try to work your way around the maze. It's very tricky though as one wrong move and the ball will fall off meaning you have to go back to the start and start all over again (which happens an awful lot) You'll either love this puzzle or hate it, it's one of 'those' toys.
Ryan (6) hardly ever puts it down, he's always hiding in a corner of the room somewhere trying to complete it. He's obviously got much more patience than the rest of us here.
The Addict A Ball measures 19cm in diameter making it a good size to hold in your hands. It's super light weight to hold so your arms don't get tired easily and made quite strong as Ryan has dropped it quite a few times and it's still in perfect condition which is a plus point.
The puzzle maze is really tricky as the maze goes all around the ball, meaning you have to turn the ball around, upside down and in all possible directions to follow the numbers around. At some points it's quite hard to see where the ball is when it disappears into corners or holes but generally it's lots of fun trying to master it. I have to hold my hands up and admit that this thing drives me nuts so I've given up even trying. I find myself getting a few numbers in (like to number 7) and then falling off. I find myself wanting to throw the ball out of the window to somewhere far far away where it can never be found again but luckily for it, Ryan loves that ball so I just couldn't do it to him. Ryan and that ball have become best buddies. If it's not in his hands, it's somewhere not too far away from him. He's crazy!
If you like puzzles or mazes or just quirky balls then Addict A Ball is one for you!
