oblo :: what's oblo you may ask? {giveaway}

When I first saw this item at Toy Fair 2011, I immediately thought of my Lili. She is a thinker and loves doing puzzles. And this puzzle rocks! It is challenging and fun all at the same time!

It's something that my husband and I can sit down with her and do together. She isn't quite at the point where she is able to complete it all by herself. She does get frustrated from time to time doing it, but it's great because we are able to work through the challenge areas together.

Here is a little more about it followed by a quick video of the puzzle in action:

"OBLO is the award-winning 3D spherical puzzle that challenges and inspires kids of all ages. OBLO is also an engaging, didactic puzzle ideal for growing minds. It's a colorful layer of spheres that creates a compelling 3D puzzle. The OBLO is both a tactile and mental toy. As children construct and deconstruct its parts, the OBLO develops motor skills and hand-eye coordination as well as engaging children’s curiosity. As they use both of their hands to manipulate the OBLO, it is also a great preparation for learning to write and draw."
