The Tilt-O-Ball is based upon the basic ideas of mazes and pinball. Children will tilt the board to attempt to move their ball into an opponent’s goal. However, this task becomes difficult due to the interchangeable maze tiles on the board. Each tile can be moved to anywhere on the board so a new maze could be navigated each time. This toy may be costly to make, as each tile would have to be manufactured separately, and made out of thick, durable plastic, to prevent breakage when rearranging the tiles. The Tilt-O-Ball is definitely a hazard for small children as the metal ball could be swallowed.

For children ages 5+
