At the end of the 19th century, Britain experienced a huge puzzle craze
A number of the puzzles famous during that period were in the flea markets, despite their rarity.
Based on these original puzzles from Britain's famous puzzle period,
this is one that have been successfully revived in its new form.
The key part of this puzzle is the "star",
which needs to be freed from the snake binding it.
If only the star wasn't so stubborn in its return to the snake.
Hanayama Toy Co. began life in the mid-1930s as a manufacturer and retailer of traditional games
More than seventy years later, Hanayama continues to make games, puzzles for people of all ages.
Hanayama suitably acknowledges and credits the inventors of these ingenious puzzles.
These are original metal puzzles made with the permission of the inventors not unauthorised copies.
These cast metal puzzles are divided into six levels of difficulty
but don't think you'll start with the most difficult.
Even level 4 metal puzzles have taken experienced puzzlers hours to master.
