SLIDA® into poll position this Christmas

Named Top Toy for Christmas 2017 by Toy & Hobby Retailer magazine


Australian entrepreneur and inventor, Gianni Lavermicocca, is delighted to announce his award-winning 3D puzzle, SLIDA®, has been named one of the top toys for Christmas by Toy & Hobby Retailer magazine.

The SLIDA® classic is an irresistible, tactile 3D ball-shape which only reveals its true puzzle nature when it’s in your hands.. While it seems simple to unlock the pieces, putting it back together is a different story whether you are seven-years-old or 70. There are many ways to try putting it back together, but there is only one solution – will you figure it out?

SLIDA®‘s unique, sequential interlocking pieces embody STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) principles. Solving the puzzle relies on logic skills; what may start as an individual challenge, can turn into a group activity – whether you want help or not!

Its compact size makes it perfect on a road trip, when stuck inside on a rainy afternoon, or when a bit of fun is what’s needed; SLIDA® is ready to roll.

“For SLIDA® to be voted one of 2017’s Top Toys for Christmas by the editor of Toy & Hobby Retailer magazine, Australia’s leading trade publication for the toy industry, is a thrill and a great endorsement of our unique IP,” SLIDA® inventor Gianni Lavermicocca said.

“We’ve watched people all around the world embrace and engage with SLIDA®. Ability is no barrier when achieving SLIDA®’s, solution. Suitable for those with additional learning needs, it is a toy to be enjoyed with the rest of the family, because everyone approaches the challenge in a different way.”
