It may look like an innocent puzzle toy, but the Brainstring has all the tormenting qualities of a Rubik's cube with a bad attitude. My teenage son tried for 15 minutes, then threw it across the room in defeat -- so at least its construction is sturdy!
The younger kids in the house played with it much longer, and even Mom had a go, although I was probably more defeated by it than anyone. Being able to see the string inside makes you feel like the solution is closer than it really is. Sneaky! It's quite addictive -- every time you think you've given up, your hands reach out for one last try.We didn't like
It's pretty hard, so it's only for those who enjoy brainteasers.
