Zachary opened the first gift this Christmas and it was a Perplexus 3D maze. There is a marble and three tracks (mazes) to get the marble through. With help from Jake, he got it opened and started working on it.
For about half of the present wrapping time he was working on it. There has been nothing since he was about two that has kept his attention that long unless it was a video game. Seriously, he was sitting there for probably and hour and a half or more while cousins, aunts and uncles, along with Grandma and Grandpa opened presents all around him.
After completing maze one and part of maze two, he was a little frustrated because he was having some trouble getting it. We talked him into taking a little break and trying again later. He is not very fun to be around when something is frustrating to him. Zach is going through a rough time right now. Maybe it is a little too much caisen in his diet (we are a little lax sometimes where cheese is concerned), or all of the transition that has happened this fall, or, he could be growing.
Any number of things could be the cause. Could simply be that he has been staying up way to late and getting up way to early lately. All I know is that the Perlexus had him sitting in one spot focused on one thing for a long time today. Great gift!
