EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

True Balance from Excite is the unpredictable game of balance and coordination for one player at a time. With the look and feel of a classic toy, it features a wooden handle with eight discs loaded with magnets. Each disc rotates on a single axis. The object of the game is to try to align all the discs perfectly on top of one another. To start, grab the handle and let all the discs fall to one side. Then move your wrist to try to align the discs. There are no set instructions on how to win but that's all part of the fun. It encourages experimentation, logical thinking, and trial and error. Developed in cooperation with occupational and physiotherapists, it was designed to improve focus, and fine motor skills - similar to the extremely popular fidget spinner. It also may help relieve stress, and is a fun way to work on hand eye coordination. Plus it has a STEM component, as it utilizes magnets, and engineering. 

Is It Fun?

We found  this game fun, and a little addictive. Once we got the hang of it, it became much easier to do but we like how every time you play it's different. It encourages experimentation, logical thinking, and trial and error, and offers a fun way to work on  fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, and focus.

Who It’s For

True Balance is a single player game for ages 8 years old and up. It's great for kids who need to work on fine motor skills, and focus. 

What To Be Aware Of

There are no set instructions on how to win but that is all part of the fun. 

A plastic True Balance Mini is also available for younger children.
