Brio labyrinth game, suitable for 6-99 years!

brio labyrinth toyThis labyrinth game by Brio was one of the presents we gave Pim for Christmas and it was such an immediate success. During the courses at our Christmas dinner that evening, the kids were literally fighting over it, together with their grandfather (see photo!). So the fact that Brio markets this toy as suitable ‘for 6 to 99 years’ is really spot on : ).

The classic labyrinth game was introduced in 1946, and it’s all about fine motor skills, reactivity and… patience. The little ball is balanced by turning the two knobs at the side simultaneously to keep it from falling in one of the holes. Different levels can be chosen by inserting a different board.

It all sounds really easy, but it’s much, much harder than you think!

I completely forgot about this game. It was part of my childhood. Thank you for the post. It brought back such sweet memories (despite of the numerous moments of frustration when the ball kept falling into the same hole for the 10th time 🙂 )

We always enjoy playing with my dad’s old one when we go visit. I like how Pim’s version has different levels! Genius.
