Holey Moley – 10 Pin Bowling Your goal is to arrange the pins such that they are all the same height when inserted into the base. The challenge lies in that all the pieces are different lengths, each hole is a different depth, and you have the angle of the base to mess with your mind even further…  A fun and artistic puzzle that is joy to play. Its not intimidating so everyone will try it, but you soon find out the solution may not be as easy as you first thought!  An excellent desk or coffee table type puzzle, but it is something that even youngsters will enjoy and have a chance of solving so we recommend for ages 9 and up. A good adult solution time would be 20 minutes. The base is made of precision cut floorboard material. It is super strong, scratch resistant and even washable. The playing pieces are cut from hardwoods and may be maple,  ash, or birch. It measures about 9” x 2” x 4.5”. It will come unsolved, but a written solution is included.

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.
