Cast Ring II

Cast Ring II Note: Our level rating system is different than Hanayama’s.  Hanayama’s level 1 is equivalent to our level 5…. level 6 is equivalent to our level 10. This is the second of the ‘ring’ puzzles. The five separate rings can be taken apart and put back together. This version has been changed a bit from the original and is made by Connecticut’s Jose Grant. This puzzle has five rings, like the Olympic rings that stand the test of time. That is the basic concept behind this puzzle. This type of ring puzzle goes back at least as far as the 15th century, and is now remade with modern technology. Give it a go. -NOB 2004-

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.
