Brass Monkey One

Brass Monkey One Brass Monkey One is a version of a classic six piece burr puzzle.  A nice heavy puzzle; it weighs in at just under 800g, around 1.75 pounds. It’s well made and sturdy. The solid key piece contains a sprung stainless steel ball bearing which helps it click satisfyingly into place. Brass Monkey One is shown in the pictures both assembled and in pieces. This puzzle is number one of a series of puzzles that look similar but have different assemblies. Brass Monkey Two is also available.

Take apart and reassemble the metal pieces.

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.
