Light Bulb Puzzle
Hello puzzle maniacs!!!
It’s 2013 and we are all still here!
It is puzzle review time and this week I’m going to talk about the Light
Bulb Puzzle. This is a wire and string
puzzle and the object is to figure out a way to remove the string and wooden
plug from the wire light bulb. The
puzzle is a delightful addition to my collection. It is rather light in the difficulty
scale. Puzzle Master rates it at a 5 out
of 10 and that is about right. I think
that this puzzle is still worthy of your hard earned money because it looks
fantastic and provides a light distraction.
I would also say that this puzzle makes for a thoughtful gift. Maybe a friend is struggling with some
creative endeavor like writing or creating the next award winning IPP puzzle. My suggestion would be take the puzzle and a really
loud smurf and place it in an old twinkie box.
Rig the smurf to go off when the package is opened. Will this stimulate the creative juices? Well it might stimulate the adrenal gland
juices. Guess where I received this
puzzle? That’s right from the nice
people in Canada. Unfortunately the
puzzle is not available as of this moment but Puzzle Master is pretty good
about restocking their puzzles.
Special note: No
smurfs were seriously injured or juggled through creating this review.
