Hook Up £5.00
A puzzle to amaze your
A wooden rod with a hook
at the end fits into a wooden tube that has a piece of elastic running across
it. You tell a spectator that the object is to get the hook caught on the
elastic so that when the rod is withdrawn it snaps back into the tube.
You demonstrate what you
mean then ask the spectator to have a go. No matter how hard they try they can
not replicate your feat (unless of course they know the secret),
Easy to do.
Six pieces fit together to form
a perfect equilateral pyramid.
Looks easy but you will probably
find it harder than you think.
The Mouse and Cheese £4
A wooden ‘mouse’ has a
circle of cord attached to it. The mouse is fastened to a wooden ‘cheese’
and the object is to separate the mouse from the cheese without undoing the knot
in the cord.
