Mittan (Sequential Discovery Puzzle Box)
Mittan is named after our beloved ginger cat. We built up stock level of Zebrano timber gradually and when it became enough to produce the puzzle, the project began. The code name for the puzzle was Ginger Cat, but after dressing the Zebrano timber, we realized that there would be some black cats, so we decided to use the name of our beloved cat itself for the puzzle.
The object of the puzzle is to put a bell on the cat. In addition, the final cavity contains a small figure of a Japanese traditional sweet in the shape of a sea bream that is called Taiyaki. Many SD puzzle lovers will think that the puzzle is easier than our former products Sequential Discovery Cubed Box and Slammed Car. A great deal of time has been spent to shape and finish the figurative puzzle pieces. Therefore, the price to solving time ratio is higher than many of our other products. Counting every single movement, there are quite a few steps to solve this puzzle though.
The puzzles can be solved with gentle operation, and there is no need to bash or violently shake the puzzle. Of course, the use of any tools not included in the puzzle is prohibited. Some of you might have an urge to use an external tool when the puzzle is reassembled, but there is a way to reset the puzzle with existing puzzle pieces.
Apart from the timber visible from the outside, the following materials are used: Ironbark, Jarrah, PNG Rosewood, Bamboo, and Metal.
The puzzle is sold assembled. The solution to this puzzle will be supplied upon request by PDF file format.
