Buksi Ball: A Spud Favourite

This toy, made by perplexus has kept Spud [and his parents actually] busy for hours. It's even worked in the car when stuck in traffic. He's a bit of a maze freak and this genius toy is actually a 3D maze.

An additional favourite part of the game is that in the 'rules' it states you must yell out "buksi" [pronounced 'booksi'] when you drop the ball [the little silver one that runs the maze]. There is something about the act of announcing this silly word that is so fun it mitigates the sting of having to start over. Especially when the whole family chimes in. It's so simple and effective that Spud bravely tries the maze over and over again without giving up.
