Mind Jewel Maker:  Recent ToysAge:  7+ This jewel holds a secret. It’s easy to pull it apart but challenging to rebuild. First find the loose end ‘gemstone’ and peel the jewel completely open. Twist and turn the gemstones on the necklace string. Now recreate the original jewel in its full, spherical shape. Keep building the jewel up by wrapping the gemstone string around until you have the complete jewel.How to play1.  Stretch the 12 connected gems into a straight line.2.  Some gems can rotate to connect from multiple sides.3.  Solve by connecting all 12 gems to create a ball.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
