Four Cubes Puzzle

Product is available.
DESIGNER: Kohno Ichiro
SIZE: 2" (5.1 cm)

Four Cubes is Kohno Ichiro's follow-up to the brilliant Three Cubes puzzle. This sequel puzzle features two pairs of identically shaped pieces embedded with magnets similar to Three Cubes. The goal is to combine the elements to create a stable assembly forming four distinct, equal-sized cubes, each connected to the neighboring cube with no more than a half-face. Despite having two possible solutions, Four Cubes is a step up in difficulty. A secondary challenge is possible: find a solution that creates two bars of equal length.

Once solved, the puzzle snaps into shape, resulting in a beautiful and entertaining fidget toy. Four Cubes belong to a set, including the Three Cubes and Five Cubes puzzles. Each escalates in difficulty.

This batch of Four Cubes was constructed from nicely figured Bubinga lumber. Approximately 65 copies of are available. Four Cubes ships in an unsolved configuration.

Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.

Please read the Caring for Wood Puzzles guide to ensure proper fit and operation. We recommend an occasional polishing with Renaissance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.

Great series of puzzles

I love Eric's boxes and complex puzzles, but sometimes it's nice to enjoy the elegance and simplicity of a solidly built put-together like this. Magnets make for good fiddling and (bounded) exploration. Recommend the whole series of Cubes - plenty of the unexpected to be found. In fact, my 6 year old son took 3 Cubes and 4 Cubes and within a few minutes had found a stable (but not completely magnetically-joined) 4x4x4 voxel cube to be made out of the combined pieces. Can you find it?
