What's in the box?
Snake cube: The Snake Cube Puzzle builds up spatial reasoning skills and patience as you twist the snake made up of 27 wooden cubes back into its original 3x3x3 cube. This puzzle is perfect for all ages with no loose pieces and it provides a wonderful educational experience that hones problem-solving skills. If you don't have it yet, what are you waiting for?
Star puzzle: This intriguing puzzle is made of six identical, wooden pieces that interlock to form a 3D star. Releasing the star is easy, but putting it back together will prove more difficult than you might think. The smooth feel of these precision-cut pieces make this puzzle a joy to play with and the high quality of the wood and craftsmanship ensure it will last for years to come. Once you’ve solved the Star Puzzle it makes a beautiful art piece to display on a bookshelf or coffee table for others to enjoy.
Soma cube: The Soma Cube just may be the most famous packing problem ever devised! Danish mathematician Piet Hein invented the puzzle in 1933 to distract himself during a lecture on quantum mechanics. The mind-blowing Soma Cube consists of 7 non-identical pieces that must be packed into a 3x3x3 cube. All 7 pieces must be used, and unlike most puzzles (which usually have only one right answer), there are up to 240 ways to build the Soma Cube! During your quest to find all 240 solutions, you may stumble upon the 100 other shapes that can be built using these same 7 pieces. The sky’s the limit!
