Nature/ Type: Wooden kumiki airplane puzzle
Funyards Australia is well-known for its range of timeless and lovingly handcrafted wooden products, from its one-of-kind furniture pieces, elegantly-crafted decorative homewares, exciting and playful educational toys, to classic wooden models with a brain-teasing twist. Today, I would love to share about this latest obsession of my 7-year-old - “Airplane - 3D Interlocking Wooden Puzzle”.
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) 11 Interlocking Pieces - Wooden Kumiki Puzzle
I am fascinated with the wisdom of a Kumiki puzzle - I can’t help but to get all excited watching numerous 3D wooden pieces of varying sizes and shapes, came together flawlessly, forming a beautiful airplane model. It’s captivating to watch, a simply ingenious process. This airplane model can be taken apart and separated into 11 interlocking pieces. Compared to some of the other Kumiki puzzles I have done in the past, this Airplane version is probably one of the easiest in terms of difficulty level. But don’t get fooled by its simplicity, the puzzle is still challenging enough to keep us intrigued and it took us quite a while to figure out the steps and solution. It’s amazing to see the airplane taking its shape bit by bit - from the main body part, landing gears, wings, propeller, to the rudder at the rear. We love how the pieces interlocked and fixed together securely once everything were inserted and connected at the right place. After learning the buildings steps, we find it really addictive to dismantle and reassemble the puzzle, over and over again.
(2) Adorable Airplane Model
I love how adorable the airplane model is! This is a fascinating brainteaser, a beautiful decorative item for the home, and a cute little toy to be incorporated into the kids’ imaginative small world. The propeller and wheels are rotatable, which really adds on to the fun play experience!
(3) Lovingly Handmade By Artisans In Thailand
I love the precisely-cut pieces that can interlink and fit so perfectly. The airplane has a rustic handmade feel, and I love the few natural contrasting shades of timber that really accentuate the beauty of a good quality wood. The toy is manufactured in Thailand, and elegantly handcrafted by local artisans. This puzzle is irresistibly beautiful.
