The world-famous Ball of Whacks® is designed to inspire creative thinking through tactile play. The set consists of 30 magnetic building blocks, each a perfect rhombic pyramid as described by the "golden ratio." The mathematical precision of the design presents endless possibilities for play. Discover surprising shapes, create artistic sculptures or just enjoy the tactile sensation of rearranging the pieces as they pull apart and snap back together again.

The fascinating combination of geometry and rare earth magnets is likely to help get your creative juices flowing. If not, The Ball of Whacks also comes with a 96-page illustrated creativity guidebook written by inventor, Roger von Oech.

Shipping & Returns

Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.

We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.

We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
