Ox-Yoke Puzzle

.

Continued from product description on Classic Toys & Puzzles' Page Five...

Historical Background: Puzzles have been a source of amusement and entertainment since the 3rd century B.C. If there were a "golden age of puzzles," it was probably around the end of the 1800s and early part of the 20th century. It was during this period that the first patents for puzzles were granted. Since then, new types of puzzles have been created due to the inventions of new materials (particularly plastics) and manufacturing technologies (such as injectiontool molding).

The Ox-Yoke Puzzle (2104) belongs to a group of string puzzles that were popular during the mid-1800s and early 1900s. In fact, these puzzles are still mind bogglers for all ages today. Our Ox-Yoke Puzzle is still made the old-fashioned way with wood and string.

The object of the Ox-Yoke Puzzle is to move one wooden ring from the string loop on one side of the puzzle to the string loop on the other side of the puzzle without untying knots or cutting the string. Solution included! Puzzle is 6-1/4" in length.

Fun Fact: The Ox-Yoke Puzzle is also known as the "Lover's Yoke Puzzle."
