Fine Motor Skills at The Happy Puzzle Company
It isn’t only the mind that benefits from a workout here at The Happy Puzzle Company, so for those of you who like to practice a delicate touch or just improve your motor skills, we have the puzzles for you!
The board contains two sets of coloured balls which are moved across the maze under the clear plastic cover using two ‘pencils’. These ‘pencils’ have a magnet in their tip, but are held by the child using the same tripod grasp which they would use to hold a regular pencil. The magnet-tipped pencils are used to guide the balls through the maze from the start to the finish. Players must trace the line of the path, carrying the balls as they go, to reach the centre of the maze. The skills used to do this are similar to those used in writing and copying. However, unlike a real pencil or pen, a mistake in the Magna Maze will not leave any marks on a piece of paper. If the player leaves the line and drops the ball, they simply pick it up again and continue, building their self-confidence as they progress. Endorsed by specialists.

Steady hands and careful planning are needed to balance your penguins on the slippery iceberg. They all want a place on the iceberg, but only those who can keep their balance avoid falling into the icy pond below! If you succeed before the other players you win the game, but if the penguins fall, you could be back to square one! A simple game for the whole family that really is great fun and a superb hand/eye co-ordination challenge.

It couldn’t be simpler. 20 ladders and a playing surface. Each additional ladder that is placed has to make the overall structure higher. It also has to stay balanced! The winner is the last player to successfully place a ladder on the pile. Great fun!

Stack’em is a fabulous game requiring lightening reflexes and a steady nerve! Roll the three dice together. Grab and stack the cups with one hand in the order the colours appear on the dice (largest to smallest), aiming to be the first to hit the bullseye! Faced with 36 cups, this is easier said than done! It’s unbelievably addictive! A sneaky left/right hand challenge adds an extra devilish dimension for those who have mastered the basic game. Absolutely brilliant!
