By Tahj | Toyology Spotlight

Tired of the same old puzzle? Try Shashibo!

Shashibo is a magnetic puzzle cube. Each cube contains 36 rare earth magnets. 1 cube transforms into over 70 shapes. Combine 2 or more cubes to create large shapes and more possibilities.

I enjoy sacred geometry, so that’s what drew me to this product. The fact that you can combine them with magnets is amazing in itself. If you had an infinite amount of cubes, you can keep combining them!

  • Recommended for ages 8 and up 
  • Contains 36 rare earth magnets 
  • 1 cube transforms into 70 shapes 
  • Combine 2 or more to build more

Educational Benefits:

  • This product expands the user’s creative abilities.

Toyology Spotlight – Flying UFO

By Tahj | Toyology Spotlight

Ever heard of an AI Drone?

The Flying UFO is a state of the art drone, that has a cool personality. Just by simply throwing the device up in the air, it will fly on its own. It’s very light and doesn’t damage itself upon impact. It has about a ten minute flight lifespan.

When you throw the UFO in the air, it activates and starts flying. It has sensor technology that allows it to be aware of when it’s near an object. I personally think it’s awesome that you can just throw it up in the air and it flies, without your control.

Key Features:

  • The Flying UFO is an awesome drone that flies on its own.
  • By using the sensor technology it possesses, it’s aware when it is near an object.
  • It’s light and easy to carry.

 

Educational Benefits:

  • It develops hand and eye coordination, by trying to catch and/or grab it.
  • Upon observation, it teaches how sensor technology works within AI machines.
