This ball of wood breaks into six pieces just so you can work on putting it back together :D Yes, if you are a puzzle addict this is one to try. Take a break from work or gift this to someone. We assure you it is great fun and we have seen many a customer at our store forget shopping and settling into a chair and working this puzzle to its completion! Have fun - perfect for all ages young and old. By the way, kids do it a lot faster than adults.
