Friday Fun Feature: Perplexus Twist

Posted by aMuse Toys on November 30, 2012 2 Comments

 

The Perplexus Twist is the latest challenge from the creators of Perplexus.

Just like the original Perplexus, the Perplexus Twist challenges kids (and adults) to maneuver a marble through a spherical, multi-layered maze. But the "Twist" is that the kids have the ability to change the actual path of the maze!

Let's say you've reached a cliff or a deadend, just twist the outer knobs and change the path. It's like a moving M.C. Escher drawing!

And, like all the games in the Perplexus family, the Twist is an exercise in hand-eye coordination, dexterity and visual perception for kids.

We welcome the new challenge!

What We Love: Plus-Plus

Posted by aMuse Toys on November 29, 2012 0 Comments

When we saw Plus-Plus from Geared for Imagination at the 2012 New York Gift Fair, our hearts were all a-flutter. We are always excited to find a new twist on a building toy, and Plus-Plus is just that. And the Danish made toy just won a Fat Brain Toy award for Best Building and Construction Toy!

Here's what we love about Plus-Plus:

1. We love its shape. The Danish company's motto is "Simplistic Shape. Endless Possibility!" and that's exactly what we get. We can connect the pieces on all four sides. We can build vertically or horizontally. We can build out and make amazing 3-Dimensional structures.

2. We love its colors. There are two color sets, basic and neon, but don't think you can't mix and match. In fact, don't feel limited by the colors at all. Who says you can't make a car that's purple and orange with neon green headlights?

3. We love its math concepts. Yes, we just used the words "love" and "math" in one sentence, but trust us, you'll love this too. You can introduce pattern making into those designs or just watch as your kids figure out how to connect the pieces to get the angles or structures they want. It's all part of problem solving, but we won't tell them it's math if you don't.

Roundup: Tegu's Baltimore Block Party & Mobility Line at aMuse

Posted by aMuse Toys on December 20, 2011 0 Comments

 This past weekend at aMuse Toys was quite eventful. Not only did we have a great time racing and engineering some pretty cool wheeled creations, we got to hang with the amazing Tegu pit crew! Will Haughey and his team are some of the most passionate, energetic and just plain FUN people to be around.

Everyone at aMuse Toys had a blast.  We thank Tegu for the unique play experience they provided our customers and staff.

Tegu Mobility is truly ingenious.  Tegu had already taken the classic wooden block to a new level by adding magnets and now, with its mobility line, the possibilities for play are endless. The addition of wheels to the fascinating connectivity of Tegu blocks enhances play value for everyone --regardless of age.

We are thrilled to announce that the Tegu Mobility line is available in limited quantities at both aMuse Toys locations! We are the ONLY retailer in the country to offer the first run of these amazing new products. If you are not local, don't worry you can score Tegu Mobility online exclusively at tegu.com.

Don't forget to enter Tegu's HOW DO YOU ROLL? SWEEPSTAKES. One lucky winner will work directly with Tegu Designer, Nate Lau, to design Tegu’s next car, for more info click here.


Thanks to our friends at theWAIREHOUSE for documenting the fun on Sunday in Fells Point!
