Pelikan Egg wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand Pelikan Egg wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand


QTY:





An ingenious 4 piece interlocking egg puzzle on a turned wooden stand designed in 2007 by Jaroslav Svejkovski.  Whilst this is not considered an extremely difficult puzzle, the pieces are each made from many smaller complex shaped pieces glued together; finding the correct combination that are not glued, to push or pull to take apart, is very important.

Once you take this puzzle apart you will need to fit the 4 pieces back together paying attention to forming the smooth surface of the egg.  Because these puzzles are hand turned and finished there is only one solution.  There may be a number of different assemblies but for the finished puzzle to exactly as it was made you must assemble it correctly.

A great long lasting Easter present for a puzzler instead of too much chocolate.

Tiles - Wood selection



Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange  - San Francisco, USA, August 2009
Presented by Brian Young.  Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia.  Designed by Brian Young. 

This sliding block puzzle is very different to others.  Firstly, you cannot touch the tiles that you must slide because they are behind perspex.  You must use dexterity to do this.  Generally more than one block at a time will be moving which means you must think many moves ahead.  Secondly, you use the blocks that you are sliding to deliver the ball bearing from top to bottom of the puzzle.  This is like a maze because at the same time you are sliding the blocks you are forming the maze-like track that the ball bearing must take to arrive at the bottom.   Most of the pieces are different; that is the tracks in each tile that carry the ball bearing are different.

QTY:





Start with the centre position emply and balls on all other positions on the board.
