Sold Out Limited Edition 2000 Set of 18

To combat earthquakes a building construction using interlocking wooden pieces has been used in Japan for centuries. During the Edo period (1603-1868) Masters made models of the corner joints to teach apprentices the construction method. It is likely although unproven that this lead to the origins of the Japanese interlocking puzzles called kumiki.

Whilst WALLY is modelled after the kumiki technique the pieces are Mr Puzzle’s own design. WALLY is much larger than the usual size these puzzles are made in Japan to accommodate a complex lock not seen in traditional kumiki designs. You will need to negotiate this lock before you can take the puzzle apart and understand it to be able to put the puzzle back together.

Clue: What do crocodiles do apart from just eating tourists?

WALLY is crafted from Australian Blackbean. Size: Nose to tail 510mm Toe to toe 120mm

NOTE: Original selling price in USD was 118.80. In June 2008 one of these puzzles sold at Baxterweb Puzzle Auctions, Featuring the Ron Zezima Collection for USD 1061.00
