Three Cubes Puzzle

DESIGNER: Khono Ichiro
SIZE: 2" (5.1 cm)

Three Cubes by Kohno Ichiro is an award-winning design placed in the top 10 2018 IPP Design Competition results. This pocket-sized puzzle is a ton of fun and remains a favorite. With only three identical pieces, this seemingly simple assembly puzzle may keep you busy for longer than you expect. The goal is to combine the pieces to create a stable assembly forming three distinct, equal-sized cubes. Complicating this task is the polarity of the powerful magnets embedded into pieces.

Once solved, the puzzle snaps into shape, resulting in a beautiful and entertaining fidget toy. Three cubes were only the beginning; Mr. Ichiro subsequently designed the Four Cubes and Five Cubes to create a set, with each puzzle escalating in difficulty.

Mr. Puzzle posted a great video review of Three Cubes.

This batch of Three Cubes was constructed from striking planks of Canxan. Approximately 65 copies are available. Three 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.

Three Cubes Puzzle

A fun puzzle involving the polarity of magnets as well as a visual assembly challenge. Perfect for my 9 year old granddaughter learning about magnetism. Not too easy but not so difficult that she gives up in frustration. Challenging for me as well! Beautiful workmanship. We are very happy with it and highly recommend it.
