Puzzles by Difficulty > Difficulty Level 5


It is important to present the person with a challenge you don't want to discourage them by buying a puzzle they have no chance of ever doing.  So, if you're buying a person's first puzzle, but you still want it to be very hard, it may be wise to begin at a puzzle rated 5 to 7 rather than going for a 10 first up.

Brick sticks 15 piece diagonal burr puzzle Brick sticks 15 piece diagonal burr puzzle


QTY:





The object is to assemble the 15 piece diagonal interlocking burr puzzle.

Using diagonally oriented wooden pieces has been a distinct feature of wooden interlocking puzzles made in Finland for over 100 years. The National Museum in Helsinki exhibits a diagonal burr made around 1910 but it is known that as early as 1888 Chandler patented a 13 piece diagonal burr.

We expect this 15 piece version to be quite a handful. It has a slight change on original Finnish design which helps lock the puzzle together.

 
Alles Käse 4 pieces of cheese puzzle Alles Käse 4 pieces of cheese puzzle

Traffic Lights wood and rope puzzle Traffic Lights wood and rope puzzle


QTY:
