The concept behind Perplexus Rookie is simple. There is a small metal ball inside the puzzle ball. You roll the ball to get the small metal ball to the starting point (it's clearly marked with the word "start" on it), then you roll the ball around by following the tracks (the tracks are numbered) to complete the puzzle. Once you complete it, you could challenge your friends (or family members in my case) for time.
To complete the puzzle and roll the metal ball on the puzzle tracks, you need to have pretty steady hands and lots of patience. I was a little too enthusiastic so I ended up rolling the metal ball off the tracks a few times. The Rookie is the prefect size to hold and move around, I was able to rotate it comfortably. It took DD a few tries to understand the concept behind it, but once she got a hang of it, she could not put it down either.
Now that we have beaten the puzzle, we are leaving the Rookie in the car to keep the kids entertained. I am also planning on buying the more advanced version of this puzzle. If you are a puzzle lover, I recommend checking out the Perplexus Rookie.
