Harry Potter Perplexus: B&N Exclusive based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Buyer beware, this is not a new labyrinth design for a "brand name" theme (like the excellent Star Wars Death Star Perplexus)! This is a recolored Perplexus Rookie with Harry Potter branding and a $30 price tag. Nowhere is that mentioned in the description. They've even given it a new name (Perplexus Prophecy) to make it sound like a new puzzle, but if you look closely at the "orbital grip ring", the "Perplexus Rookie" stamping is visible (and legible in some pictures elsewhere, but of course not here). Of course you do get a dragon pedestal on which to display the blatant deception if you buy it, so there's that. Shame on whoever was involved in this decision.
Perplexus Fans Beware! If you or your child is already a Perplexus fan, you do NOT want to get this. This is NOT a new Perplexus - it's just a Perplexus Rookie with a fancy design. They didn't even bother to make a new maze for Harry Potter. The product description does not mention this, though you may notice "Perplexus Rookie" on the edge of the ball when looking at the pictures. Unfortunately we didn't see that before our son received this for Christmas. He noticed it right away, having solved the Rookie years ago. He was able to solve this one without even opening the box! We will be returning ours. If you haven't bought this already, save your money.
