Barasoain

Barasoain Designed by Rex Rossano Perez, this is another first-rate “free the coin” puzzle.  As with his other puzzles, the name plays with an aspect of history in his home country, the Phillipines.  It is also a sequential discovery puzzle that captivates and delights so many puzzle lovers! Sequential discovery puzzles differ from other take apart puzzles because you will remove pieces that may have to be re-used as tools once you determine how to use them to advance towards to the solution.  A very cleverly contructed puzzle! Made in grey (blue & red) acrylic, its unpretentious appearance adds to its natural appeal.  Perfectly pocket sized at around 2.5 inches long, the “coin” is actually an acrylic coin-sized token.  Recommended that you attempt to solve this puzzle over a table or such, since there are pieces that may “fall out”.

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.
