Is That A Puzzle In Your Pocket?

Imagine a game app, but in wood. Measures 6” x 3-1/4” x 3/8”, like an iPhone 6-Plus, but you never have to charge it and there’s no glass to break. Has (42) colorful geometric shapes in a wooden frame, and all you have to do is take the shapes out and try to fit them back in again, which is harder than it sounds, but that’s what puzzles are for.

Jacob's Ladder

It's nice to know that some things don't change. One is the Jacob's Ladder. Still made with (6) slabs of wood, each about 2" x 2" x 1/2", each a bright combination of colors, and all connected by a contrasting ribbon. Hold one end up and let the string of slabs dangle. When you flop the top block end for end, each lower slab in turn will flop end for end. Fascinating. Particularly if you are about 5 to 9 years old.

The Most Mispronounced Game

Wee-gee, like the photographer, is the most common way and no, we won’t get into where it comes from, although oui (yes) + ja (yes) is an old wives’ tale, and those are just a bad as old husbands’ tales. Just be grateful that there’s a way to communicate with another dimension, and that you could own a thing called a planchette. So take this 15" x 10" laminated board and the aforementioned 5-3/4" x 4-1/4" planchette and wait for your nervous system to spell out something. Guaranteed to be even more accurate than a magic eight ball and not to lead to demonic possession. For soothsayers 8 years and older.

Drawing A Blank?

The draw-it-yourself jigsaw puzzle, just begging to have an invitation written on it, and then be mailed to potential guests as a handful of pieces. But this 28-piece cardboard puzzle also measures a desktop or car-friendly 6-3/4" x 4-3/4" in plain white, so it's also begging to have kids add a picture for the fun of it. It's even suggesting that you mix the 336 blank pieces in a pile, explain it's a dozen pictures of an albino moose in a snowstorm puzzle, which it might very well be for all we know, and award a prize for the first finished puzzle. Note the classroom and party-friendly bulk price.
