Ball of Whacks
Ball of Whacks created by Roger von Oech
The Ball of Whacks consists of 30 magnetic design blocks that can be rearranged into many, many shapes including the beautiful 30-sided rhombic triacontahedron.
The Ball of Whacks is a creative stimulant and a mental freshener!
More versatile than a puzzle and lots more than a brain teaser, there's no right or wrong way to play with it.
The Ball of Whacks comes with a 96-page illustrated creativity guidebook that provides you with tips, stories, exercises, strategies, and insights into the creative process.
Each individual piece of the Ball of Whacks is a "golden ratio" rhombic pyramid. Held in place by 180 rare earth magnets, these design blocks fit together to form a perfect 30-sided rhombic triacontahedron — which is one of geometry's most beautiful shapes.
WARNING! CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years. This product contains small magnets. Swallowed magnets can stick together across intestines causing serious infections and death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnets are swallowed or inhaled.
