This multi-awards winning Balancing Cactus is a classic of balancing toy. It is designed based on the basic physics principles like centre of gravity and weight distribution.
Players start building from the wooden base, each player takes turns adding the wooden bulbs to the base to form a cactus. Each bulbs comes in different sizes and weights. If you put too much weight on one side then it topples over so children have to learn the correct way to build it.
It is all about strategy! The player that can build and balance the cactus without making it fall is the winner.
EDUCATIONAL PLAY: Each wooden piece varies in size and shade encouraging children to observe and note the differences. Focus on adding segments to the cactus without letting it fall over! Or play a game with a companion - alternating placing pieces on the cactus and seeing who can add the most without letting the structure fall.
SUSTAINABLY-MADE: Handmade from sustainable rubberwood and stained with non-toxic water-based pigments each piece of the Balancing Cactus is free from sharp edges and harmful substances.
