Aluminum Cross

Aluminum Cross

Aluminum Cross The aluminum cross is the first puzzle that Dutch designer Wil Strijbos created in the 1980’s.  It’s design is still as unique and captivating as when he first created it almost 40 years ago. This puzzle is not like other puzzles you may have seen before… It is difficult to take apart, but even more to put together.  Even when you have seen how the pieces are constructed, it is not obvious how to reassemble it. Materials: A high-quality product made from precision machined polished Aluminium. The puzzle is engraved with Wil’s signature so you know it’s an original. This current manufactured batch has brass end pins which are different from the steel pins Wil previously used in the puzzle.

The first thing you see when looking at any puzzle is the photo or illustration of the completed puzzle. On choosing, remember that the image should have some educational value but also be something the child can relate to. If the image is familiar to the child or fulfills the educational objective (like learning colours or naming objects), the experience of completing the puzzle will be all the more enjoyable, satisfying and productive. The image should be easily recognizable so the child can identify it as something they see around them in their everyday life. It should also have distinguishable features to help them decide where to put the piece so that it ends up in the right place.
