Many years ago my Dad made a few of those puzzles, but used a square wood block rather than the ball. He would pass the puzzles to those young kids that "were bored & had nothing to do". Lots of thinking, and NO batteries! Thanks for sharing, and be safe.

Thanks. I thought about using a block but decided to scavenge this colorful/plastic ball from the kids old toy box. I brought it into work and watched a lot of people get frustrated which was pretty funny.
