Hanayama Brain Teaser Puzzle Level 4 - Coaster
Serhiy Grabarchuk is a famous Ukrainian puzzle designer who lives in Uzhgorod. The puzzle depicted on the piece of drawing that he sent looked like a strange adornment weaved into a 'coiffure' design. If you put a glass carefully onto the completing puzzle, it becomes, indeed, a coaster. Using this when serving drinks to guests will on doubt create stimulating conversation.
Hanayama Brain Teaser Puzzle Level 4 - Mobius
Have you ever heard of the Mobius strip? It is a complex surface where the front and back are indistinguishable. In this puzzle, obstacles are placed on the surface and block the way, just like a maze. As you move forward, the front becomes the back and vice versa, leaving you perplexed. The theme of the puzzle is the strip. Created by Oskar Deventer from the Netherlands.

This puzzle is brilliant. This is the first Hanayama puzzle I've attempted (it arrived yesterday along with Labyrinth and Quartet which I will review separately once they are solved).
This is a very logical puzzle, and yet it's hard to see the logic until you've solved it, which is something I like in a puzzle. I took it apart in probably about 30 minutes, but then it took me at least that long to put it back together again. The second time was quicker, but I didn't fully understand it until the third time.
Now, once you've really solved it and understand how it works, it's very simple to take apart and put back together, so at that point there's really no replayability in terms of solving it again. However, it's a very attractive piece and it makes a great desk decoration/fidget toy. It's quite hefty and feels good in the hand and the motion required to disassemble and reassemble is very satisfying. As a fidgety person, I am extremely pleased with this piece and I expect it will still get lots of use even though I've solved it.
- It took me ~1.5 hours to solve. When I took it apart, I had no idea how I did it
- It took me 3 hours to figure out how to put it back
- Spent another 2 hours taking it apart and putting it back together a couple of times. At this point, I found out "the trick"
Despite knowing "the trick" to this puzzle, it is still my favorite and has a welcome spot on my desk. I often take it apart and put it back to together (~5 seconds now) just for fun. The action of the puzzle is memorizing to me and despite taking it apart hundreds of times now, it still provides me with satisfaction and a mild sense of accomplishment.
Prior to this purchase, I was unfamiliar with the Hanayama brand but have been pleasantly surprised through my experience with Marble. The toy is aesthetically pleasing to view and heavy and smooth in the hands. It is the type of toy I am not afraid to showcase in my office. My only complaint is that this toy is smaller than I originally anticipated it to be (please see pictures below for reference). I would have paid double the price to have an exact replica of this puzzle, but double the size.
*Of note, despite some of the other review comments, this puzzle does not act as a fidget spinner. While it does have a ball in the center of the puzzle, it does not act as a bearing (like a fidget spinner). It does rotate, but despite my best efforts, cannot do a full revolution on a single spin.
I normally can solve puzzles pretty quickly, but this one took me a little while and the first time I did get it solved, I didn't know how I did it? Then you have to put it back together, and that is just as challenging. What I like is that this isn't a puzzle you solve once, and then you know forever how like some of them. This one you can solve multiple times before you really understand it. There are a lot of opportunities to get close to the solution, and still not get it.
For the puzzle lover in your family, this is a good choice. I wouldn't suggest it to really small kids, but anyone over the age of about 9 can have fun with it if they're patient.
Unfortunately, as with all of these type of puzzles, once you figure it out, it is simple. After my kids are done playing with it, I will put it on my desk at work where many people will be drawn to it. Many people like the feel of the solid metal in these puzzles.
