Equilibrio, By Foxmind - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Balance game - but of a more advanced-level 

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:  5 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Anyone that loves to challenge themselves with building tall structures + balancing + problem-solving - for both adults and older kids 

I LOVE games that incorporate hand-eye coordination with the science of weight distribution, beauty of balance, and mystery of gravity point. If you are looking for a challenging balance game that pushes you to the next level of “impossibility”, you would love “Equilibrio” from Foxmind . Thank you Leisure Learning for providing a copy of review! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Super Cool Balance Games - I enjoy balance games, and have had the honour of testing out a few different versions in the past. Most of these games gear more towards younger kids with the aim of training up dexterity of little hands. “Equilibrio” is probably the most advanced balance game I have ever seen. The set comes with 18 “Geoblocks” in various geometric shapes, and a booklet that contains 60 illustrations of complex geometric structures. The objective? Construct the structures vertically (many of them seem almost impossible to be built at first glance!), whilst maintaining their equilibrium once completed! I love the insanely addictive problem-solving process, transforming a two-dimensional illustrations into 3D whimsical structures! Some puzzles require us to figure out the equal weight distribution by placing 2 blocks simultaneously at perfect timing, some require the precise balancing of a block precariously at the edge of a contact point, some require us to search for the centre of gravity while figuring out the sequence and the correct piece to use. Oh and don’t forget the frustration when a structure crashed down mercilessly when you attempt to place the final block at the tip! 

(2) Different Difficulty Levels - I love that the challenges are colour-coded and arranged in different levels of difficulty, each completes with a “window” showing the type and number of blocks needed to complete the puzzles. For younger kids (like my three-year-old), they can also create structures in free-style using these interesting geometric blocks. 

(3) Sturdy Quality - Material wise, the plastic blocks are light weight and I love the bright, bold orange colour! I also really love the good-size booklet with pages combined with spiral binder, and the very sturdy storage box that keeps everything organised.
