Craighill Venn Puzzle Desk Toy Challenges Your Brain and Hands

Brain puzzles have been around for a long time without any real new additions. Until now.

The Craighill Venn Puzzle Desk Toy requires a great deal of dexterity. Even though it seems simple—it’s three identical stainless steel pieces that fit together to make a ball—it’s not a simple puzzle to solve. All together, the ball weighs 1 pound 10 ounces and measures 2.25 inches in diameter (about the same size as a pool ball).

The interior of the die-cast parts features a pebbled texture, while the exterior has a satin finish. Assembling the puzzle requires precisely aligning six different points—hence the difficulty. When it does all come together, you’ll hear a satisfying click. For an added challenge, you can pair the Venn Puzzle with the Jack Puzzle.
