Cast Enigma

Cast Enigma 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. Patented in America in 1975, the somewhat swirled pieces of this puzzle by Eldon Vaughn must be taken apart and then put back together. I once found a smaller version of this puzzle about twenty years ago in America, but considered it impossible to solve at the time. We have made a new version maintaining the difficulty of the original and licensed it for the cast Cast Puzzle series. This is without a doubt among the most difficult of all puzzles. The key word is ‘Twist’. Don’t use too much force…the pieces should just slide apart. -NOB 2001-

Disassemble and Reassemble the Puzzle

The first thing you see when you look at a puzzle is the photo or illustration of the finished puzzle. When choosing, keep in mind that the image must have an educational value, but also something that the child can identify with. If the image is familiar to the child or meets the educational purpose (such as learning colors or name objects), the experience of completing the puzzle will be more enjoyable, satisfying and productive. The image must be easily recognizable so that the child can recognize it as something that they see around them in their daily lives. It must also distinguish functions to help them decide where to place the piece so that it is placed in the right place
