OTTAWA, March 10 /PRNewswire/ - Keeping kids entertained in the air and on the road is never easy.  There are only so many times "I spy with my little eye..." can keep a child entertained.  To keep "are we there yet" questions to a minimum this spring break, PlaSmart Inc. suggests parents keep their kids occupied and entertained while on the road with the new Perplexus 3D game maze challenge.

"The best travel toys are quiet, do not have a lot of parts that can get lost or scattered under seats, and can engage a child for extended periods of time," says Timothy Kimber, President, PlaSmart Inc. "They are also compact so they can be packed easily and don't take up a lot of room in the car.  All three Perplexus maze challenges fit these criteria nicely, and best of all, they can be enjoyed equally by kids and their parents."

Named one of the 'top 15 smartest toys for kids' by Time Magazine in February 2011, the Perplexus 3D game maze is the bendy, trendy, can't put-it-down 3D maze game where players must manoeuvre a small marble around challenging barriers inside a large-sized transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus challenges players like no maze has before with numerous paths to choose from and dozens of barriers to overcome offering hours of entertainment and fun. 

There are three Perplexus challenges players may choose to fit their skill level.  The Perplexus Rookie ($19.99), new this spring, is for newcomers and younger players and features 74 barriers to overcome.  The new Perplexus Epic ($29.99), also new this spring, is for those looking for the ultimate 3D maze challenge and features 125 difficult barriers to overcome.  The Perplexus Original ($24.99), which was introduced last year and became an instant breakout toy hit, features 100 barriers to beat.  Perplexus is available at all major retailers and is for ages 4 to 104.
