Melting Blocks Puzzle (Redstone Box)

Melting Blocks Puzzle (Redstone Box) This is a really attractive puzzle. Comes with an all hardwood box and sliding lid. Embedded into a hold area on the lid is a red block, the “Redstone”. If you remove the lid you will see that the box appears to be full to the top with 8 pcs. The puzzle comes in the unsolved state.  Your goal is to insert all 9 pieces in the box so that you can slide the lid back on.  Seems impossible, but of course it can be done. Comes with clear instructions. Box measures about 4 1/2″ x 3″ x 2 3/4″ high. This puzzle was designed by Thomas O`Beirne, Canada.

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.
