Two Scoops Magnetic Cup and Ball Game
The designers have cleverly enhanced a traditional cup and ball game in to a dual use toy.
By embedding magnets into each ball the classic cup and ball challenge is made a little easier for beginners. Players swing the strung ball and try and catch it in the cup. But with magnets at the base, as well as inside the cup, the game play options are extended. There are three levels of difficulty by combining two balls and two magnet points.
But the game doubles as an imaginative play accessory. By tweaking the cup design so it looks like an ice cream cone the balls have become ice cream scoops and children can roleplay. Clever!

The Milaniwood range of toys from Italy combines a wealth of style, strong educational values and environmental principles.
