The essence of synchronicity and synthesis is wonderfully captured in this gorgeous Huzzle Cast Loop Puzzle from legendary Japanese puzzle creator Hanayama.
This stunning cast metal brain teaser was developed by a young Finnish puzzle designer named Vesa Timonen as an endearing homage to a puzzle ring he once gave his girlfriend. As such, its simple and distinct design allows it to double as an accessory when the pieces are joined together.
The Huzzle Cast Loop Puzzle is the perfect pocket puzzle for beginners or unique gift for people who love puzzles. It’s essentially two steps, separate the interlocking pieces and then put them back together into a perfect loop. Yet, while Hanayama ranks this basic puzzle as a 1 out of 6 on their difficulty scale, many advanced puzzlers have found themselves initially fooled by its clever design.
Once you know the solution though, you’ll never forget it. This is a rare puzzle that might just be as fun to show others as it is to figure out on your own. It’s a great party or coffee table puzzle that is sure to put a smile on people’s faces once they figure it out. You’ll want to carry this Hanayama Puzzle with you everywhere.
