There were these ball things, like puzzle-ish maze sort of toys. (Wow-- my English teachers would be so proud!) I asked Lilac what that was all about and she's like, "Oh, those are some cool toys dad bought for us."
Very interesting people, very interesting indeed, my husband is pretty much the "throw it away, we have too much stuff, don't buy anymore toys" police. SO, you know if he's buying new toys and it isn't someone's birthday or Christmas that toy must be something special.
We have the EPIC (that's the grey and blue one) it's really hard! And the ORIGINAL (the colorful one). The box recommends these for age 8 and up, though Rainy enjoys playing it as well and she's 6.
This thing will seriously keep big kids (and adults-- we showed it to our neighbor who is an engineer-- he didn't want to put it down) quietly occupied for a LONG time! Yes, there may be a few shouts of frustration (mostly from Lilac in our house) but they keep trying!
No one around here has made it all the way to the end of either of yet…but we haven't given up either! We're hoping to get our hands on the ROOKIE next! There is also the TWIST, I have no idea how that one works, but it looks cool!
