About the Product
Playing with forms in space is an activity that has always been valued by artists, architects, and
mathematicians — both young and old. The first reference to toy blocks seems to have been made in 1693 by English philosopher John Locke. This miniaturized wooden building blocks set should not be underestimated. The design dates back to 1936 and the work of Danish mathematician Piet Hein. They offer a ton of dynamism. They’re proof that good things sure can come in small packages. Challenge friends, family, and colleagues to remove the blocks from their box and reform a cube one of 240 different ways. You can also form 18 other cube-like shapes. If you’re really feeling the creative sparks flying, then attempt a more complex form, like a scorpion! Ingenious mechanical premise. Great for boosting creativity, dexterity, and focus or as corporate desktop art. Fear not. This comes with instructions that includes a description of the solutions. 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 cube arrives incomplete, damaged, or without instructions then simply return ship for a new one.
