    My friend gave me this yesterday as a gift. I'm by no means a renowned puzzle-solver or anything but I "solved" this one in under 30 seconds which made for a very awkward gift exchange.

      Comments about EIFFEL TOWER PUZZLE:

      Unfortunately the person I bought this for (a 15 year old boy) figured it out in less than a minute. He is bright, but I thought it would keep him entertained a bit longer than that.
