Be Amazed

Throughout history, labyrinths have often been used as a form of meditation, with their twisting paths freeing the mind to contemplate higher things. This labyrinth, however, is much more likely to raise your blood pressure. It's a challenging puzzle, where you guide five stainless steel balls through a circular track. The path is difficult, but you can find great inner contentment once you have coaxed all five pieces into the center ring.

A beautiful addition to any office or countertop, the game is handmade by artisans in India using sustainably harvested sheesham wood, a kind of rosewood known for its beautiful grain. These artisans, often without education or with health-related issues, are able to use their craftsmanship to find their way out of poverty. Made in India.

      Comments about WOODEN LABYRINTH GAME:

      I bought two. One is a gift for upper age elementary. One is a gift for an adult. It is nice enough to sit on a desk and take a break during some quiet thought time. Easy enough for a child to use quietly while waiting for Mom or Fathet at an appointment.
      I do think it is a fun gift for a. Adult!

                Check the size. It's much smaller than I thought It would be. The greatest thing is that the balls cannot be removed! The small silver balls are a tiny bit larger than the maze, so they can't get lost! From a mom used to crawling around on the floor searching for game pieces, that feature is a charm!

                Comments about WOODEN LABYRINTH GAME:

                This labyrinth is a fun toy to use for a few minutes at a time, but isnt too difficult. It has nice craftsfmanship and my cats really love playing with it; rolling the balls around.

                That being said, I had received a gift card to pick something out on your site. Everything was a little out of my price range so I just got whatever I could find around the gift cards value. When I got it in the mail, I was a little shocked at the small size and thought it was definitely worth much less than it cost.

                      This puzzling potential new good is handmade from sustainably harvested sheesham wood by fair trade artisans. Would it make a great gift for someone in your life?

                      gorgeous construction. I love labyrinths - have bought the metal ones offered by Uncommon Goods before. Love puzzles. Definitely on my wish list. Price in unbelievable, considering how overpriced other things have been. win win win on this one.

                      They should also make this as a trivet for hot pots tp use in the kitchen. The design is really great.

                      LOVE this!! Would make a great item for home and my son's classroom at school. He is autistic and this would be a great "gift" for eye-hand coordination as well as a practice in patience!

                      The place where I work sells these. They are actually pretty tricky to get all 3 balls into the center.
