Test your logic and see if you truly understand the intricacies of 3D perception.

All you have to do is stack the pieces together in a way that perfectly matches the image on the card.

That's it.

But, don't be fooled! This game may have super simple rules, but once you start playing and getting the steam pumping through your brain, you'll realize that it's truly one tough challenge!

    Best 3D mental rotation tactile toy I can find
    Posted 10/21/2013 by Daniel Brown

    These are great tough puzzles that will challenge the smartest person you know. They also have the answer in parts right on the back of the card so you can get a little or a lot of help and not give up in frustration. I am a teacher and use this game and others like it to challenge students that finish exams early. They love it. All STEM majors in college have classes that stretch them in 3 dimensional mental rotation skills and this toy works those muscles in the brain like no other I have seen. There are computer programs that do a better job, but no toy I have seen and I have bought dozens looking for the best.

    I think this is an awesome product but the puzzles are more difficult than I had anticipated causing my 9 year old to get a little frustrated...we work on them together to solve this issue.

    It is enjoyable, but difficult!
    Posted 4/5/2011 by Catherine

    This one is a challenge. My kids played with the two-dimentional shape-by-shape first, but still have a lot of difficult with this. This toy is a great and rare one that would help develop spatial acuity. One really needs a sense of geometry to work it out.

    Must have for those "Mom~there's nothing to do" days
    Posted 12/29/2009 by justdots

    This game is loved by kids ages 7-15. We actually haven't broke this one opened yet, the kids play with it at a relatives house and LOVE IT!! So I bought it for our house, which is "the Neighborhood house" if you know what I mean. I am planning on buying more for Christmas gifts next year because they are always a hit!!!

    The reason I chose your product over other similar items is because yours included the deck of cards showing all of the various shapes that are possible, with hints on the back of each card. The product is great. No complaints.
