Labyrinth Balance Board Review and Giveaway!

I remember being about my son's age and playing with this wooden labyrinth game. It was challenging, and fun, and frustrating.. you used these knobs on the side of the box to change the position of the platform. The marble couldn't fall through the hole, or you were out.

With the holiday shopping season rapidly approaching, I felt very sad that there were not very many selections out there for kids today. When I was contacted to review this product, I was super excited to see how my children would react.

Made with old school beliefs of quality instead of quantity, this "Made in the USA" wooden Labyrinth Balance Board is a must have in every household this holiday season.

Whether you choose the Jr size (for ages 3-5) or regular size, (Kindergarten +) this balance board is sure to delight children of every age.

It comes with multiple balls, so that it holds your child's attention and the difficulty level is up to them.

Alex is gifted, and one of the things I've learned and accepted is that most toys don't hold his attention very long.

When we received this product in the mail, as soon as I took it out, Alex wanted to play with it. He did it the "easy way" in just a couple of seconds. He continued to play with it, balancing and guiding the balls forwards and backwards through all of the turns of the labyrinth.

He literally played with the Labyrinth Balance board for over an hour that first day, and since has played with it several times each week. Something he rarely does with other toys.

Alex wanted to demonstrate the Balance Board in action, so please feel free to watch this brief clip on YouTube.










Made in the USA of durable plywood with a non slip coating, the Labyrinth is a great activity for both individuals and groups alike. Players use their weight and body movements to navigate colored balls through the maze. It's not as easy as it looks.. in fact, I even tried to use the balance board and although the balls made it through the maze, it was no where near as quickly as Alex made it through. To make it even more interesting, time each player and compete to esee who can complete the labyrinth quickest.

Want it?
Visit MuseumTour.com to find this item and more toys that encourage children to use their bodies, their imagination and their minds to play, learn, and explore.


This giveaway is open to residents of the US and will end on December 18th, at 11:59pm EST. One winner will be chosen at random using Random.org. Disclosure: The item reviewed was provided to me, at no cost, by Challenge & Fun Inc. on behalf of Museum Tour.

My grandaughter had 2 cancerous brain tumors and hydrocephalus. Needless to say she is physically impaired. The Labyrinth balance board would be a great pt therapy work out for her. As well as the Fitness treadmilll and the fitness bike. They are child size physical therapy equipment that could be used by her for years. The colors make it more appealling, and the size of them is more appropriate for her age.They can be used indoors , safely, out of the sun so not to flare up her skin cancer or asthma. I wish her school and doctors had them. She would be more interested in working out. hbuchser at yahoo.com
