The colorful 21-piece Oblo Puzzle Sphere ($20) is supposed to help kids develop their fine motor skills and spacial reasoning, which we're sure it does. In fact, maybe kids "get it" more than we do, because it takes us forever to take it apart and put it together. We use it as a desk toy to help us keep our brains sharp. When we feel our attention wane from our computer screen, we know it's time to pull out this puppy, play, and then get our butts back to work. If we can solve a 3D puzzle, then we can finish filling in a few spreadsheets, too!
