For more background on the Soma cube, see Martin Gardner's "Mathematical Games" column in the September 1958 issue of "Scientific American", reprinted in The Second Scientific American Book of Mathematical Puzzles and Diversions and in Origami, Eleusis, and the Soma Cube: Martin Gardner's Mathematical Diversions (The New Martin Gardner Mathematical Library).
I love the feel of the seven different wood pieces, and I'd forgotten how much fun the puzzle itself is. The tray and cover pieces are very nice, too. It makes an attractive display piece when it's not galvanizing your right hemisphere.
You should note that there is only a minimal solution sheet, giving Piet Hein's own first solution to the puzzle. You'll be able to download a nicer PDF of the same thing from the company website. There are 239 other unique solutions...happy hunting! You'll want to look online for more information.
Most highly recommended is this large size; at close to 3.5" on a side, it's almost identical to the old Parker Brothers version, and the best to work with. The price is great, shipping was trouble-free, and the puzzle has now sat in various forms on my desk all day at work...fortunately, I'm in the arts, and this behavior is an asset, not a liability!
Highly recommended as a present for a friend, a bright kid of any age, or yourself.
Incidentally, it is NOT a toy; it's a very good puzzle that one can build into a multitude of different constructions. A cube is only one of many.
The puzzle itself is great. There are so many shapes that can be made with this puzzle. The puzzling possibilities are virtually endless. A web search will show you the many possibilities. And the puzzles can take a bit of time to solve but are not so hard that you won't be able to find a solution in the end.
One note about the puzzle is that it not only comes with what is shown in the photo (the puzzle and base) but also with a nice wood lid that covers the whole thing up.
I definitely recommend this puzzle.
