A challenging, versatile packing puzzle.
The 12 distinct pieces make a 3x4x5 cuboid in thousands of different ways (3,940, actually!). You can also construct 2x3x10, 2x5x6 and several different rectangles. Other puzzles to tackle using the 12 pieces can be found in Pentomino or Puzzle books, or on the Internet.
Made from a variety of different woods, the puzzle is designed to look attractive in between being used.
Known by mathematicians for centuries, Pentominoes are all the shapes that can be made from 5 squares.
