Rated at 6 out of 6 in difficulty level.

First of all, let me say I haven't still managed to solve this puzzle (I only bought it last week).

Reputedly one of the most difficult of the collection (although the Cast Nutcase puzzle could also have a claim to that), the first thing you have to work out is how on earth can the pieces begin to disentangle from each other.
Eventually, a keen eye spots two key features in the puzzle.
I think I may be half way to solving it, but can't tell for sure.

I know there are some youtube videos explaining the solution, but I refuse to look at them on principle.

As ever with this collection, the construction is very sturdy and durable.

If you're looking for something a bit more accessible (which even your children can have a reasonable go at), I'd recommend getting Cast L'Oeuf first.

Bought as a present for my hubby and friend. They both competed against each other in solving the puzzle in the shortest time. Brilliant puzzle, difficult to do and needs lot of thought to complete it. Will buy more from Hanayama for other friends.

We love these puzzles and will definately get more as there are lots to choose from and at different levels. Two of us(4)have done this now but even putting it back together is a challenge. Really great value and something you fiddle with over and over, frustrating and fun all in one.

I got this as a gift to a friend. The last one I got him was way too easy, and I was looking for something that would occupy him for a while. This did the trick. Disassembling it took him awhile, and trying to put it back together took him days.

Very pleased with the purchase. Heard no complaints. (Apart from the fact that he hates me, because it took him so long!)

This is what a puzzle should be: unlikely to be done by mistake or quickly and no hidden trick. Those that have good spacial awareness and are good at untangling knots, should be okay at this. This is the first Hanayama puzzle I've managed to work out in a methodical manner and I can therefore take it apart and put it back together with ease. It is possible to reconstruct it in a mirrored configuration, but that doesn't really matter. My method does require the puzzle to flex slightly at one critical point and I have yet to find a way to avoid this. I expect it's intentional.

Had this apart and back together only twice now, once at 6 am in the morning at Costa Coffee waiting for a flight to Andorra. Spent most of the 2 1/2 hour flight & 3 hour coach transfer trying to get it apart again, it is clearly affected by air pressure as I was unable to get it apart again.
