N52 This is a satisfyingly systematic maze puzzle brought to you by Jean Claude Constantin!  The shaped tracks in the puzzle display like an “N”, “5” or a “2”, hence the name of this series of puzzles that is available in different sized grids.  This particular version of the series features a 3×3 grid of pegs and channels. Your objective is to free a small metal ball from the maze through the exit hole.  This is accomplished by maneuvering the wooden sliders around the fixed metal pegs until the opening is clear of obstruction.  A very methodical and intriguing puzzle! Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzle, as well as magic tricks.Please note that wood colors can vary.

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.
