Gear Shift

Gear Shift The Gear Shift give a new twist or two to an old puzzle utilising eight rotating gears, which some might think it’s a definite step down from its previously release older brother the Gear Cube which had 12 gears they will be sorely mistaken. This puzzle is deceptively difficult as while the simple rotation of the eight meshing gears simply serves as a mesmerizing display indicative of a Haruki-Nakamura-style piece of art this is not what makes the Gear Shift truly reveals itself. The moment one discovers that the core can be pulled apart the difficulty skyrockets, what was once an inevitability now truly becomes a challenge of logic, for while solving a face or even two might appear simple… to the uninitiated the true challenge has only just begun. Gear Shift was designed by Oskar van Deventer, based on an idea by Bram Cohen.

Wooden puzzles are an updated version of a traditional toy and are designed for education purposes. They offer an excellent price-quality ratio, given the number of positive rewards that you can only get from toys. It is an activity that can be shared with friends or family, which gives a huge feeling of satisfaction when the last piece is put together, so that the child wants to repeat the puzzle over and over again.
