HOWEVER, the puzzle I received from this seller is very poor quality, and does not match the picture. The wood is connected by a stretchy cheap feeling elastic, and the puzzle is much smaller than the one I had previously owned. It feels like a cheap toy that came free in a box of cereal. I'm assuming it will break after minimal use. Once again, the picture shown in the description is most definitely a photo of the higher quality version of this toy, and NOT of the one that will ship. Considering this cost me $15 with shipping, I am a very unhappy customer. For that much money, the real product should have been sent.
First of all, we buy a lot of these types of brain teasers and puzzles. This is a well built item, very durable. Originally I expected this to be very easy but to date, it remains unsolved. Everyone from the age of ten to mid-forties has enjoyed trying this out...in fact, it quickly became the center of attention this past weekend as out of town family members ranging in age from 12, 19 to 40 attempted to solve it. None did although the 40 year old worked on it for the better part of an entire afternoon [we lost him to this one]. Another great feature about this one is that it is one piece - unlike others that have multiple pieces that easily get lost or scattered about. Due to that, it is an excellent choice for those that may have young children or pets in the household OR for to take along when traveling.
The concept is simpler than say the Rubik's Cube,and takes no time at all to see how to attempt to solve it.Simply twist and turn the cubes until you form one large cube.Seems easy,everyone wants to have a go at it,but it is more difficult than one thinks. It can just be left around for anyone to pick up and try.I have had one which I tried many times to solve,without success.I also bought one with a solution included,and found that it could be solved quickly with the solution.But don't fret.Just put it away for a while and when you return to it,it will still present a challenge if you don't use the solution again.
I had already realized that all these "snake" cubes are not configured or wired the same;so one solution "does not fit all".In some cases the small cubes are all alike and some are checker-board colored.The colors have nothing to do with the solution;because as far as I can tell there is only one solution.I have one that has the corners of the small cubes rounded,there are three different colored cubes,the workmanship and quality of the finish,makes it a real pleasure to hold and play;compared too some of the cheaper quality ones I've seen.
This puzzle has been given a lot of names;Snake cube,Dragon Tail,Serpent,IQ Cube,Rattler Wooden Puzzle,etc.Read more ›
Amazon Consumers: Don't bother wasting your time with this product. You, like the rest of us will just end up returning it.
Amazon Vendors: If you must peddle this product, place it at a reasonable price that your consumers will ponder keeping it when they have been duped. Perhaps around $2.00. At that price it still is around a 566% mark up instead of the 3099% markup that you are currently charging (if your reading this and trying to do the math, the wholesale price of this product is $0.30 (verified)). As a result you might not face so many returns on this puzzle.
