The Sum of all your Particles

The premise sounds simple enough: take the wooden particle apart and then try to rebuild it without sneaking a peek at the solution. But watch out, recognizing spatial relationships and spotting the solution is about as easy as seeing an atom, particle, cell or molecule with the naked eye! Each measuring six inches in diameter, these extra-large, science-inspired brainteasers for older kids or grown-ups will put your gray matter to good use. Each puzzle has a different concept and difficulty level. Once you've completed the Atom, the Molecule poses the next challenge, and then the Particle will stump you. Up for the ultimate challenge? You can tackle the Cell. And you thought passing chemistry was tough! Made in China.

Comments about LAB TEST GAMES:

The product was well received. From a picky
13yr old grandson had the atom apart and back together in no time.

Didn't have time that evening to start the molecule so not sure how long that took.

Will check with him on it and see if he wants the other 2.

        I originally bought these because I felt they would look nice on a new shelf I built for my living room. They look great. They are very difficult to piece back together, even with the picture of what it looks like assembled right in front of you. But, thats the whole point. If it was easy, it wouldn't be fun.

                The puzzle arrived with bent sticks and one that was actually broken. I have emailed the email on the box, Puzzle Professor and have not gotten an answer. At this point, this was a total waste of money as it can not go back together with bent sticks and especially with missing the broken one. I am disappointed Puzzle Professor has not even answered my email.

                  While you don't need a microscope to examine these molecules, you will need to consider the science of assembly. Would one of these brainteasers make a great gift for a science fan or puzzle lover you know?

                  I have seen these kinds sold at store way cheaper. $20 for one piece is too much. If you want to sell this product, you will have to sell all four for $20

                  I think the size of these puzzles is not obvious. Each puzzle has a 6" diameter (just a little smaller than a soccer ball).

                  I initially was going to vote thumbs up but after seeing the price changed my vote. This might be fun to give a science teacher or science wonk but $20 each seems too high.

                  At this price, I would buy one. If the price were lower, I'd buy several. If the price were a bit lower and they were a bit smaller, I'd buy a bunch of them.

                  It is actually a great price considering its size. If the size was more obvious, I believe more people would agree.

                  $20 for 2 would be better pricing; make it in the USA; small parts are dangerous with any small children around; looks like small parts may easily be lost/misplaced.

                  I like the idea, but it's too pricey - maybe 2 for $20

                  Great idea, pretty good price and definitely one for the rubiks cube fans of old as well as brain teaser for the more up to date.

                  Every summer I take a puzzle of some kind when we have our week at the shore. You know, something to amuse teenagers and young adults just in case it rains. This would be perfect - I'd probably buy more than one.

                  I suppose if someone is in my house with nothing to do maybe... But that never happens.

                  Looks cool so the game aspect is a bonus.

                  Great gift idea for people of all ages. Would be nice if the price point was $15.

                  You should sell them as a set. $20 each is too much.

                  Love the product, but way too expensive.

                  I love these, but the price should include all of them- looks like they're mass produced.

                  A tiny bit pricey - maybe $15.00 each?

                  I like the idea of these but I've seen other puzzles like these for half the price

                  Love it, but I'm not feeling the price.

                  A little on the pricey side, though.

                  imaginative wood puzzles; $20 each sounds right

                  Love the idea. But you can buy 9 of such puzzles in less $20 in the market.

                  would be a great gift for the puzzler in my life!
