I wonder what toy can please adults and children. Now, I know there would be some as radio-controlled models and plastic kits. But each seems limitedly. I heard many kids were lately poor at making up plastic models and have not ever met woman who loves playing R.C. ones.

Then, I found. Puzzles can do it. With the prepared pieces, you try to erect. It is exactly a toy of structure and expression. They would afford delight to young and old. My old pal cohabited with a girl in college years and together enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, which tells us that it is all on a par amongst men and women.

By the way, there is no interest with jigsaw puzzles because completing makes the end. Simple ones like Buchi Puzzle could be better at intellectual training for kids and at adults, couldn't they?

Buchi Puzzle

Weight: About 540 g
Material: broad‐leaved trees
Price: 7,344 JPN (tax in)

Buchi Puzzle was developed in 2012. A woodwork company; Sakai Sangyo got in collaboration with a product designer; Shibata Fumie. It is well-known she has designed the thermometers by Omron. The Shibata used to manufacture textiles in Yamanashi and she is familiar with what craftsmen are. Buchi Puzzle shows us craftsmanship, then.

Matching colors or shapes, piling up or lining up; you are free to take what way to play. You can insert the pieces into a stick like quoits and let it put in order after playing. That is a toy full of intellectual training and convenience.



Let me give you my opinion finally. The product does not use primary colors like red and blue which toys for children tend to have. I felt modern sense on that, and like it.
