Looking Back to 2022

Hello puzzle lovers!

It's time to look back on this year.

We Have released the following 12 kinds of mechanical puzzles in 2022.

19th February - Puzzle Turbine and Splitted 12

We had been temporarily closing our web shop since near the end of 2021. After the shop was resumed, two types of high-level burr puzzles with slightly unusual shapes have been released.

23rd April - Bubble Universe

Juno says it was very difficult to produce this two-layer packing puzzle because of the small glued area of the pieces and the tight tolerances.

22nd May - Mittan

This is the Jury Grand Prize winner puzzle of the 2022 Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition. We received many personal emails from cat-loving customers.

10th July - Crooked 6 Board Burr #2 and Partially Crooked 6 Board Burr

The assembled shape of both puzzles looks like a regular 6 board burr, but when you start playing the puzzles, it feels very strange.

7th August - Card Case

We didn't dare mention it at the time of release, but there is a maze on either side of the light-colored slider of the puzzle.

18th September - Kumikisaurus

This is our first-time animal-shaped burr puzzle. It sold much faster than we expected.

6th November - Ovoloid

Five kinds of timber species, Bubinga (Sap wood), Tasmanian Myrtle, Fijian Mahogany, Camphor Laurel and Wenge are used for this very difficult burr puzzle.

25th December - Euroka 10x3, Half Splitted 12, and Pseudo Stretchy 12

Since pluredro in Esperanto means polyhedron, we always wanted to have polyhedral shaped puzzles in stock, but the Euroka 10x3 sold out in almost a day. The remaining two were added to Juno's invention of burr puzzles consisting of six 2x2 pieces and six 3x1 pieces.

How many puzzles have you played already?
We aim to make more fun puzzles tickle your intellectual curiosity.

We wish you and your family the best for the next year!
