Rechner Gross A beautifully designed puzzle with a perfect match for the metal pieces and wooden frame. The puzzle has over 8” in diameter so it’s quite heavy. Rechner, which is German for ‘Computer’, is comprised of eight distinct pieces and the goal is to pack all of them in the frame so it doesn’t show any empty paths. Originally designed by Nicolay Avilov named Square Net in Russia. A very challenging puzzle remade by Jean Claude Constantin.
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.
