Derived from the natural inclination to flip and play with pens, BaliYo is simultaneously a toy and pen designed to maximize hand-eye coordination with its three-piece twirl-able construction.

The center piece, a functioning ballpoint pen connected to two parallel arms, means that the symmetrically-sized pieces swing and rotate, changing speed and exertion as you play. The cleverly designed BaliYo structure allows for a number of engaging tricks, including two-handed, aerials, spins and quick flips for hours of carefree fun.

The refillable pen enhances fine motor skills and will write upside down or at any angle, as well as underwater. BaliYo comes in an assortment of colorways and sells online for $35.
