Who would love this: Fidget toy lovers & collectors / anyone who loves a unique brainteaser
I had never seen nor played with a Rotating Disc Fidget Spinner in my life, so I’m truly grateful to Tastic Toys for agreeing to send us one for review. I’m still in the midst of mastering the techniques and figuring out the magic behind this bewildering puzzle. But as of now, I’m hopelessly addicted to this smart and spin-able fidget toy!
Why I love ❤️ it:
(1) Fidget Toy + Brainteaser - I love the exciting design of this easily-manageable, double-sided turntable puzzle. Both the front and rear discs have 5 slots separately, with each slot being able to contain up to 3 beads. The aim is to scramble, align, and swap the coloured beads from front to back, and vice versa, in order to “restore” them into the original arrangement according to their corresponding colours (e.g. 3 beads of similar colours in each of the slot frame). They are a total of 29 magic beans in 5 colours to be moved around and re-arranged (6 blue, 6 purple, 6 green, 6 red, 5 pink). With the constantly changing two-sided configurations, this is undoubtedly a challenging puzzle that can keep both adults and kids engaged for hours. I love that it encourages logical thinking, trains up hand-coordination, and educates kids on colour recognition and matching. The boy gets really proud every time when he manages to place 3 beads of the same colour in a row, and he finds the “back-to-back” challenge kind-of cool.
(2) It Spins! - The super-fast 360 degree spinning motion is really fascinating to watch. Just like a usual fidget spinner, the rotating discs are held together with a central axle, with weight distributed equally from the centre. When we give the two discs a slight push, they rotate with great inertia and impressive speed for quite many seconds with an audible beads-moving sound. There is an unspeakable calming effect produced by this rotational movement. I love how this smart gadget combines a magic bean puzzle and a fidget spinner into one trending toy.
(3) Soft Lovely Colours - I love the soft pastel colour of the discs. I have a sweet salmon pink spinner, and Tastic Toys also offers a sky-blue option of this awesome toy.
Thank you Tastic Toys.au for another great recommendation!
