The Robert Dalloz company has produced fine wooden puzzles in a small factory in the Jura region of France since 1929. They use European sycamore and exotic woods from sustainable sources, retaining the natural colors of the woods. Their puzzles are as attractive as they are entertaining, and will last for generations.

Evocative of an urban skyline, the cityscape puzzle is 13 puzzles in one, with different solutions determined by where the key pin (a beech dowel or aluminum rod, depending on supply) is inserted in the base. The "buildings", made from sycamore, padauk, wenge and difou, have irregularly shaped interlocking bases, making this puzzle harder to solve than it seems at first glance. Stands 2-3/4" tall with a 4-3/4" square base.

The pyramid puzzle looks like a simple stepped pile of blocks when assembled, but it is actually composed of sycamore, padauk, wenge and difou rods glued together to create complex puzzle pieces. Each piece has to be placed in the right position in the correct order to complete it. With twenty pieces and only one solution, this daunting 6" x 6" x 3-1/2" puzzle is recommended for puzzle enthusiasts who like a challenge.

The cube puzzle unfolds to a chain of contrasting sycamore and purpleheart cubes connected by strong elastic cord, a design that makes the pieces easy to keep track of. To assemble it you must twist the cubes in the right sequence and position to create a 2-3/8" cube.

The cube puzzle is recommended for ages 3 and up, and the cityscape and pyramid puzzles for ages 10 and up, but they are sure to perplex older minds as well. In case you find yourself stumped, the solution is included for each puzzle.
