Fun but expensive fun

The headline says it all.

Watch out for packaging

11/9/2018 by Christopher

I bought two of the smaller TrueBalances for my two youngest grandsons, both age 4. Each TrueBalance comes in one of those hard plastic blister packs - the kind sealed around the product - which you have to use a scissors or a knife to cut open. The pack in this case is hands down one of the most difficult and dangerous blister packs I've ever had to open.

Frustrating

If you like a real challenge, try it. I could not do it! Maybe it isn’t the best gift for a granny!

Impossible

The device is much too difficult to be enjoyed. No one could sustain an interest. A bust!

Disappointed

The True Balance worked the first few times we tried it. After that the top three wooden disks would not align. No matter who plays with it, it does not work any longer. Enjoyed it for one day.

Defective

I bought the small plastic one and the Original wood model. The plastic works correctly but the wood one has a defect at the 3rd disc up. You can only get the first two discs to line and then the third disc is tilted a little so it doesn't swing around how it is supposed to. Meaning you can never win this game. Disappointed.

The game itself is enchanting, but the real reward is finishing which I cannot do since both the TrueBalance games I bought stick. The first one sticks three discs from the top. The second one sticks on the very last disc. I can wiggle the last disc to get it loose, but it doesn't glide into place. The other one is hopeless. I even held the other discs and purposely tilted the toy to get third disc to move. It wouldn't budge. Two toys, both defective. Very disappointed.

The TrueBalance Story

TrueBalance | Coordination Game

Challenge At Hand

TrueBalance and TrueChallenge put the balancing, twisting fun in your hands. And once you pick up one of these puzzle-meets-toys, you won’t want to put it down.

Makers Henrik Deterberg and his daughter Linea invented TrueBalance as a rehabilitative tool for folks recovering from brain injuries and strokes. While it did the job of working fine motor skills, the Deterberg’s learned others were simply playing with it for fun. The handheld balancing toy-meets-brain teaser is endlessly fun. The objective is to get the rotating magnetic discs to stack up. Sounds easy, but as we learned, it's
not—which makes playing with it so engaging. Instead of stacking, TrueChallenge is all about spinning. This handheld puzzle toy was originally invented by a rocket scientist and harnesses the attraction and repulsion of magnets. Twist and turn it to get all magnetic pieces to attract. It’s as challenging as it is captivating, and will keep kids (and some adults) busy trying to solve it. Read More Read Less
