“Spinballs provide children with a fun art form mixed with an exercise to express oneself, get a work out and entertain others with the beautifully colorful patterns possible.” – AblePlay, toy rating system for children of all abilities from the National Lekotek Center.

Play Ideas from AblePlay

  • Use the light up Spinballs to spell things out in the dark and have someone else try and guess what was spelled out.
  • Play “Red Light Green Light” by using the lights in the room. When the lights are off, spin away, but the second the lights come on, try to get the balls to stop moving as quick as possible.
  • Split the poi between two people to make it a copy and repeat game. The first player will choose a color and pattern, and the other person must attempt to recreate it.
