I like a good puzzle but this one looks pretty out there. The Frabjous Sculpture Puzzle definitely makes an attractive little geometric sculpture when it’s all put together. The problem is putting it together- it has 30 pieces….and they’re all the same:
You probably won’t be shocked to learn that this puzzle was designed by a mathematician from The Museum of Mathematics, named George Hart. It’s certainly a challenging puzzle but when you complete it (instructions are included, thank goodness) the result is definitely rewarding. It measures about 6 inches tall when assembled. Are you up for the challenge, mathlete?
