The Poketo Balancing Blocks for a Game of Stone Stacking Skill

These brilliant Poketo Balancing Blocks are for those who become enthralled by the unusual spectacle of stacking things one on top of another. This kit would certainly keep one endlessly entertained, providing the perfect at-home pastime of exploring the magic behind handling and loading rocks into gravity-defying formations.

Each player must carefully find and feel the balancing point of the brightly colored pieces. The results are some seemingly impossible and virtually floating arrangements. The process requires incredible skill and patience, and would serve as a great game that allows every member of the family to participate. The practice of rock balancing has also been heralded as a deeply reflective and highly instructive activity. (Therefore, I encourage the Poketo Balancing Blocks to be tried out solo as a means of facilitating calm and meditation.)

Made from repurposed hardwood scrap collected from local Brooklyn furniture shops, the ten Balancing Blocks come in a satchel perfect for taking on the go. They can also be placed on display as a eye-catching and precarious piece of home décor.
