Product Description:

This Tetris-like puzzle features 12 different shapes of between 3 and 5 beads with thin connecting plastic. The puzzle board is a 5 x 11 region of dents in which you will configure your shapes. The object of the game is to fit all 12 shapes on the Kanoodle board, starting with the positions on the cards. As the cards get harder, you will start with fewer and fewer puzzle pieces. Each setup has hundreds of possible combinations but just one solution. It can get quite frustrating when you end up with one bead off the board and one open spot, but the more you try the closer (and farther) you can get. Once you master the 2D setup, you can play 3D Pyramid Kanoodle with the same key concept but one challenging twist - use all 12 pieces to make a pyramid. I hope you find this as fun and challenging as I did.

Each setup has hundreds of possible combinations but just one solution. It can get quite frustrating when you end up with one bead off the board and one open spot, but the more you try the closer (or farther) you can get.

�Can I Kanoodle too?� has become one of the most frequently asked questions in our home lately I had my eye on this little contraption (I haven�t figured out if it�s a game puzzle memory drill or critical thinking exercise yet) for well over six months for my then 4-yr old puzzle aficionado We finally bought it for his 5th birthday and it has fast become a family favorite! We quickly purchased a second for the 7 yr old and the 12 yr old keeps sneaking his brothers�! I even caught them teaching the 25 yr old to put it together! But the children are not just working the puzzles; it appears that they are in a competition to memorize as many puzzles as possible We have found these make great quiet time activities and they are easily transportable to wherever we are going by slipping into a pocket diaper bag or even Mom�s purse So when we are going somewhere that is lacking in children�s activities Kanoodle is sure to go with us Though I am now having another dilemma as we don�t have enough to go around so I�ll be ordering a couple more so we can all (yep Mom�s hooked too) have one! I wouldn�t suggest Kanoodle for a little one who still puts things in the mouth but anyone who can read the diagrams to set up the puzzles can Kanoodle as the Level 1 puzzles are only missing 1 piece Also Kanoodle noodles and the carrying case are made of a sturdy plastic that should last the average child�s quiet playtime and then some However I would caution that you may need more than just one because you may have a hard time simply watching the children Kanoodle and they make great gifts too!
