This is an amazing toy.
It is a puzzle cut from one block of wood. When you take it apart you find:
Nine out of ten adults look at it and see a puzzle with a set of furniture inside and immediately wonder how it goes back together.
Most children look at it and see a set of blocks and wonder what they can make with them.
They can be arranged to be a bed and pillow, a high-chair and a desk and seat.
Or you can lie the high-chair down, rearrange the bits and you have a train,
or Santa’s reindeer and sleigh. Those four are shown in the instructions but we've seen about 30 – 40 different ways to play with it including a castle, rockets and robots, aeroplanes, elephants, dogs, towers and a front end loader. If you give it to a one year old they are not interested in the puzzle at all but they still recognize the pieces and play with the blocks to make simple buildings. From 3 to 10 years of age kids tend to make up more elaborate games. It is usually around 5 to 7 years old when they start trying to figure out how it goes back together. And yet, about 50% of these puzzles go to adults!
Anyone into puzzles or wood will find them intriguing.
