4 Sun 53 Step
puzzle box works very similar to the traditional Japanese puzzle box,
in that all the moves are controlled by only two sliders, one at each
These sliders allow the end panels to move vertically, and they in turn
allow the top and bottom panels to move horizontally. Eventually, the
top panel will slide off sideways. That's what normally happens...
However, just when you think the lid is about to come off, the box
appears to lock up. Strangely, the only way to get the lid off, is to
start closing the box again...
This sounds just like "The Bridge" puzzle box, but just when you think
the lid is ready to come off, the box locks again! Because you've taken
the wrong path.
This box is similar to "The Bridge", but there's extras moves and an extra path put in, and now takes 53 moves to open.
Easy to make, the size is 5" by 3-1/2" by 2-1/2" and is made from 1/8" wood and plywood.
puzzle kit has alignment pegs built into the parts to make assembly
easier and virtually every part in the kit is labeled.
