What It Is
Whacky Ball comes with four colorful balls and a squeaky hammer. The object is to hammer the balls down the holes at the top of the toy and watch them travel through a mirrored maze until they reach the bottom. (You can also use your hands to push down the balls.) When the balls reach the bottom, kids can pick them up and place them back at the top to hammer them down again. The base of the toy can be removed for easy storage.
Why It’s Fun
This toy is designed to introduce children to cause and effect. When they hammer one of the balls down, it drops and rolls through the maze. The rolling balls hold childrens' attention as they work motor skills by using the hammer. Kids will enjoy picking the balls up and sending them through the wacky maze over and over again.
Who It’s For
Whacky Ball is for ages 1–3.
The toy helps develop both fine and gross motor skills as well as visual development.
