Some pocket-sized metal puzzles

Here come 2 nice metal puzzles from Art of play webshop.

First is the famous YOT puzzle, a very beautifully made puzzle where you have to free the coin.
I am sure that seasoned puzzlers won't have any difficulties to open it while beginners may struggle a bit. So....I opened it easily :-)
However, I saw that you can open it very quickly without the people around you notice how you're doing it. And I think this may be the real challenge for experienced puzzlers: open it such as nobody notice the solution!
So far I can open the puzzle but I cannot handle that challenge. What about you? :)
I think it needs some practice:)






The second puzzle is the famous jack puzzle, here is smaller size. Well you have it under several possible names but the challenge is still the same and the design of the pieces as well.



Very easy to disassemble because when you take out one piece (the only moving piece) then the puzzle falls apart and the real challenge begins!
First, because it's not super easy to maintain the pieces in their respective position and then also because this is not obvious where you have to put such or such piece.
So even if this is a classic puzzle, it's still a nice and challenging one!


For metal lovers, then both puzzles are a nice addition to any collection and for the travellers, they are even better as you can carry them easily with you, which is pretty rare for puzzles!


You can find other metal puzzles (and wood puzzles as well) and the big brother of this small jack puzzle on Art of play webshop.

Have fun!
