4 Steine Mini

4 Steine Mini More difficult than it may appear, the objective of the 4 Steine Mini is to remove the four cubes from the frame and reassemble.  What you don’t see in the solved state is that each cube is not square!  Cut with slightly angled sides, it is difficult to know which cubes should fit together in order to lay flush with the top of the frame.  A classic sratch-your-head packing puzzle from Jean Claude Constantin. Designed by: Bill Cutler Made in laser-cut wood, acrylic, and stainless steel. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzles, as well as magic tricks and other intellectual toys and games.

Take out the pieces and then reassemble.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
