FlipStir Puzzle Tyrannosaurus Rex from Enlivenze LLC: A Fun Review!
Have you ever heard of FlipStir puzzles from Enlivenze LLC?
I hadn’t! This is a new twist on the age old puzzle. “Shake. Stir. Solve. It’s that easy!” These puzzles are fully enclosed in a plastic tube with a metal wand inserted in the top. Shake it up, use the metal wand to stir it around, then carefully piece the puzzle together inside the tube using the wand.
We received the Tyrannosaurus Rex Level 1 puzzle from FlipStir to review.
I was the one who finally figured out how to get it solved. It involved using gravity, and laying all of the wedge shaped pieces flat in the tube before scooting them around to get them in order one by one. It made my brain hurt and took an unexpected amount of effort and coordination!
Look, I did it!! (And then my three year old came by and shook up all my hard work two minutes later…)
These puzzles are great for travel, since all the pieces are inside the tube. No mess or lost pieces! They’re also excellent for practicing hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. It’s not easy to navigate the pieces with just the metal wand.
It would be fun to have several of these puzzles for a game–set up a timed race to see who can complete their puzzle first. Or if you’re looking for a unique stocking stuffer for the kids this would be it!
Even my two year old loved shaking it up and poking around to move the pieces, though he had no idea how to solve it. We left this sitting out on the shelf and nobody could resist touching it as they walked past.
These ten piece puzzles come in two levels of difficulty. Level 1 has pieces with smooth edges, and Level 2 has pieces with wavy edges.
Here are the four different ones:
