About the Product
This puzzle resembles intelligence quotient or IQ testing. Innate intelligence measurement dates back to the early 20th century, with the groundbreaking work of French psychologist Alfred Binet. The relationship between geometrical shapes tests a skill which can be improved with practice. It is not influenced by level of education or social background. That’s perhaps why Ogul the genie is so fond of this brain teaser! Challenge friends, family, and colleagues to guess the shape of the object in the box that will pass through each of the three shapes (pictured below). It will completely conform to the edges and leave no voids. Seems impossible, but it isn’t. Great for pushing basic mechanical acumen, or to satisfy those who enjoy mystery, or as corporate desktop art. Fear not. This comes with instructions and you can simply open the provided box to learn the solution. We generally will keep a batch of these ready to ship.
Production of our handmade wooden toys, learning games, puzzles, and gags is split between wood carving shops in Florida, USA and Thailand. Our specialty will be handcrafted wooden brain teasers, mind benders, and other puzzle designs from around the world. There will be classics, designs unique to us, plus puzzles and games that have been resurrected after having been lost for generations. While these games range in difficulty to solve, all are easy to try and enjoy! The quality of craftsmanship will immediately be evident. Under reasonable care, these games are heirloom quality and can be handed down from generation to generation. Manufactured and priced responsibly.
Care and Cleaning:
Wipe clean with a moist cloth, with or without using hand soap. Do not use rinse. Do not use brushes or any other abrasive surface to clean as this can damage the stained finished.
Conditional exchanges are accepted. If the shape guesser arrives incomplete, damaged, or without instructions then simply return ship for a new one.
