One of the very first wooden puzzles I ever bought was the Moth Ball - part of the Bamboo collection from Professor Puzzle - I got mine from Puzzleguru in the UK. It is extremely cheap but very attractive and as it is a classic I have kept it on my shelves!
|The Moth Ball|
|Moth Ball Pieces|
|Walnut star pieces|
|Etoile 6 pièces|
|Etoile 6 pièces - pieces!|
Now more recently I bought some new toys from Brian and missed most of what I wanted. Luckily I did manage to get these:
|OMG! She's going to murder me in my sleep!|
|Second stellation pieces|
Putting this one back together requires exactly the same movement as all the others but this one has been made so perfectly that alignment has to be absolutely milimeter perfect to make it work. Actually finding the alignment is also made harder by the additional pieces/tips added to the sticks. It took me another few minutes to get it to work! Yep! Not very bright!
I now have 4 similar but dissimilar puzzles and have to work out how to display them to best effect! If you can find a nice one don't hesitate - everyone should own at least one or maybe 4!!!
