Craniatics - Magnetic mayhem. A convergence of color and clever thought.
An unparalleled collection of magnetic puzzles and games.
Famed puzzle inventor Ivan Moscovich has an eye for the unusual and a mind for enigmas. His latest magnetic collection of brainteasers, Craniatics is a visual cocktail of new configurations. These beauties will mystify your mind and open your eyes to the incredible pleasures of playing with logic.
Eye-popping magnet tiles in curious shapes are placed on a magnetic gameboard. You maneuver them. You contemplate. You consider one idea after another. You’re tempted to give up. And then, you outfox that part of you that says- it’s just not possible.
Arranging the vibrant magnetic pieces is fun in itself. Putting your cranium to good use with them is a remarkable way to spend time. Challenging another person to a Craniatics game is rewarding interaction.
With a beautiful system for solving - a puzzling space that opens so that you can play neatly on the attached magnetic board, there’s no question Craniatics is well-suited for travel. And it’s even better for building concentration, critical thinking and logic skills.
Ten puzzles and games are included. A partial list:
Ouroboros - The Serpent
The Euclidean Ellipses
The Apple Tree
The Circuitous Journey
Compelling magnet play and inviting Craniatics themes will delight even those most unlikely to attempt a brainteaser.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
She loves it. And we've only just punched out the pieces. She is 8 and likes making pictures and patterns but we haven't really tried the challenges yet. They seem like they will be very difficult and frustrating for her.
