The latest addition to my collection

Boomerang Pyramid (the last of the "Magical Pyramid Puzzle Series")

Image

This is a tricky one to solve unlike the previous one that I posted, the parts on this one actually move around when they rotate.

Here is my latest puzzle cube

3x3x3 Bandaged

It looks like a normal cube

Image

Until you turn it over

With this one you are restricted with what sides you can turn making solving tricky

I'm really enjoying the last puzzle cube "The Magic Cube of Mouse"

I presume that the name is given as it is like a shape of a computer mouse. It feels like one to hold.

Here is another shape that I can form it into, it can be formed into a spinning top.

Image

Image

Image

Well that's enough of my previous cube posted, I'm now moving onto my latest cube.

Pocket Cube

On the face of it, it looks like a 2x2x2, but is is really a 3x3x3 bandage cube. It reminds me of the Puppet 1 and Puppet 2 cube.

The Mouse cube is not the most difficult puzzle that I own. Actually it was a lot easier than it looked.

My next cube
