Are you looking for something fun your child can do on a rainy day (or even on non-rainy days) that is inexpensive, thought provoking, small, portable and really cool? If so, let me introduce you to GeoFlux.
GeoFlux is made out of several stainless steel rings. When it’s lying flat it looks like just that – metal rings. Nothing to interesting or fun about that. BUT… as soon as you slip the rings over your wrist they spiral up resembling something like an “atom.”
I had taken a video of GeoFlux in action (my hubby used it as I video taped it) but for the life of me I can’t locate the video. I would take another one but I donated the toy to my job and I am unable to take photos/videos there for security reasons.
I did find this video on YouTube by the brand showing GeoFlux in action.
GeoFlux can be played with by yourself, or hand hands with others and see if you can get the GeoFlux to roll from one person’s arm to another.
Here is some additional information about GeoFlux.
- Made of a single continuous strand of stainless steel, coiled up as many rings
- Folds flat and pops open, surprising everyone
- Put your hand through the coils, then spiral up & down your arm
- Play solo or with a friend: Roll the Geo ToroFlux from one arm to the other, or Pass from your arm to a friend’s
- Transport securely in included travel/storage pouch
I have played with GeoFlux both at home and at work when there is some downtime. I actually find GeoFlux to be soothing and relaxing to use. The rings effortlessly roll back and forth on your arm, or from one arm to another. It’s mesmerizing to watch too.
I think this could be seen as a physical activity too because you need me move your arms up and down to help GeoFlux roll up and down your arm. You cannot be motionless or the toy won’t do anything.
The GeoFlux is recommended for ages 6 and up. I would whole heartedly agree with that. Younger children would most likely try to pull the rings apart or bend the toy. Once that happens it most likely won’t work properly anymore. For this reason I will only take this toy out at work if we have older children who can follow directions so as not to bend or break it.
I also like that it lies flat and has it’s own carrying bag to keep it safe and to tote is around. It’s also small and doesn’t take up any room at all.

I think this would make a fun toy/game to travel with during the summer. It doesn’t require batteries or charging. It’s something the whole family can enjoy. It would also make a great gift.
