Hand made using a scroll-saw by my talented friend Alon Levinson and designed by me, you can find them for sale on my Etsy shop. The puzzles you see here all have a 45 degree, 1 mm edge along the animals lines for an aesthetic look and feel. The wood is a solid “African walnut”, oiled with a (safe for kids) natural mineral oil.
You can enjoy them as a balancing game with endless stacking combinations, as a double sided puzzle, which surprises many adults with it’s difficulty level, or as a decorative, collectors piece to fill your shelf with pure joy.

I always try and make each piece a complete stand-alone figure with different size, pose and character then it’s mates. I also try to keep the holes as small as possible and make the robust enough to go through Alon’s inputs and fixes in order to match his process and the wood’s natural restrictions and fragility.
