Skill games, palm puzzles and hand-held games have fascinated adults and children since the 19th Century. The hand-eye challenge of rolling a ball into a hole or tilting a capsule through a maze has proved among the most delightful, maddening, and enduring diversions of the modern age, despite, or perhaps because of, its sheer simplicity. The first rolling-ball puzzles were available in England as early as the 1840s. Games for a simpler time… no batteries nor electronics! Makes a great gift and is perfect for fidgeting, special needs, work, school, party favors, stocking stuffers, baskets, adults, kids, and so much more!
