Puzzleballs for fun and education

Updated on September 13, 2014

Round puzzles for all ages

Who said that all puzzles have to be square? Today we have puzzles in three dimentions and here I show round ones. Puzzle balls in different difficulties and sizes. The one with a globe here on the lensphoto is our planet earth will all the names of countries, oceans and cities. For anybody this is a fantastic way of learning the geography and have fun at the same time. When you are done, there is a stand to keep your new globe on the desk to use.Then we have another puzzleball of the earth for smaller children. The pieces are bigger and fewer and there are no names. Instead there are pictures of animals who live in that part of the earth. When the globe is finished there is a stand to put it on and enjoy it a long time!

I bought a globe puzzle for my 5 years old grand daughter. She loved it and could put the pieces together just as fast as I!

We are working on it!

Three of the stands that come with the puzzles allow the globe to spin. It is actually like an ordinary table globe that can be used for education and quizzes.Amazon has also added video clips that show how the puzzles are made and how to do them. Each peace is numbered on the backside. My advice - look at the videos under the photos!

Teach and learn about our solar system! - All eight planets as puzzleballs

What Is The Solar System?The Solar System is made up of all the planets that orbit our Sun. In addition to planets, the Solar System also consists of moons, comets, asteroids, minor planets, and dust and gas.Everything in the Solar System orbits or revolves around the Sun. The Sun contains around 98% of all the material in the Solar System. The larger an object is, the more gravity it has. Because the Sun is so large, its powerful gravity attracts all the other objects in the Solar System towards it. At the same time, these objects, which are moving very rapidly, try to fly away from the Sun, outward into the emptiness of outer space. The result of the planets trying to fly away, at the same time that the Sun is trying to pull them inward is that they become trapped half-way in between. Balanced between flying towards the Sun, and escaping into space, they spend eternity orbiting around their parent star.
