Puzzles are a way of teaching mathematics. Indeed, they are the best way to teach it. The infamous Pyraminx was invented by Meffert, and introduced by Tomy Toys of Japan (then the 3rd largest toy company in the world) in 1981. Over 10 million pieces where sold through toy stores by Christmas 1981, and 90 million sold within 3 years. Following this initial success, Meffert also supplied the Impossiball to Milton Bradley and the 4x4x4 & 5x5x5 cubes to Ideal toys and their subsidiaries.

If you hated math at school, it wasn't because the subject is dreary but because you had dreary teachers who in turn also disliked mathematics. Uwe Meffert's Puzzlers help put the fun back into mathematics. Visit our Puzzle Shop for all kinds of 3D rotational puzzles.
