Occasionally eBay sellers are selling items that are illegal knock-offs. Do not buy Or SELL them! If you receive a package that does not say "Hoberman" on it or does not have patent, copyright and trademark information. You have bought a knock-off. In particular be aware there are illegal Switch Pitch balls and Brain Twist puzzles being sold online at this time. Please contact me with information. We are a small family business and these knock offs from China are a huge problem for our business. Thanks.
