To start, pick a design from the puzzle book, place some of the puzzle pieces into position as shown...thenfill the empty spaces with the remaining pieces. Hundreds of possible combinations, but only one completes the puzzle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intellectually Amazing This puzzle is a classic that I played for hours as a child and now play with my little cousins! They are just as obsessed as I was with this new remake on a great puzzle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great portable educational toy. This kept my children (aged 7 and 9) occupied on a family trip. They worked together on the puzzles and I liked how it was portable. The pieces were not so small that they were in danger of being lost, if they were mindful (and they were). The children were pleased with themselves when they solved a puzzle too :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educational Insights has THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE I purchased Kanoodle at a local store and when I opened the package a couple pieces were missing. I was totally bummed. I contacted Educational Insights and they swiftly (I MEAN VERY QUICKLY!) mailed me the missing pieces. This is a great little travel or at home game for all ages. Love the game, love the customer service even more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exercise for your brain! My 9yr old son is addicted to this. He will sit for hours and find solutions. An excellent toy for inquisitive minds and I'd rate it as being for around age 9, and all the way up to adult! It will certainly hold your interest. Note to parents.....make sure your child realised that if one part is lost, the game is ruined!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive! Purchased this for a teenager who was previously very much into the Rubik's Cube. He loved it instantly and couldn't put it down for weeks straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for all ages I bought this when my twin boys were four years old. They could complete the first couple of puzzles and could also complete the pyramid or 3D puzzle. It is great for kids and adults, the different levels of puzzles keeps everyone engaged. We bring this puzzle whenever we travel. The costumer service is amazing. We lost a piece and have been sent one for free and no hassle. Highly recommend this company and this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from stimulating, brainteasing puzzles I got about 50 Kanoodle puzzles to give to sick children in hospitals. I want the children to keep busy with a stimulating product. I tested out the Kanoodle puzzle and found that it was enjoyable to start off and the easier levels and eventually complete more challenging puzzles. Hands-on materials are more effective than crossword puzzles because it gives you the opportunity to construct your own model. In addition, it causes you to become actively involved in the learning process because you have the ability to observe, internalize, and manipulate. I would recommend this product for people that are looking to stimulate their brain. People who have early stages of Alzheimer's would benefit from doing these puzzles as it helps pick your brain! One con is that the product could be made with better quality materials. I would give Kanoodles five stars if the product was higher quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fun game! I received this game as a donation to my library for game nights for teens. Having tried the game out, I found it's a one-player game so will work best for a small group of teens coming in and not looking to play a big game with everyone. I tried the game and I love it! It's so much fun and so challenging. Every time I play it's still a challenge as it's not easy to remember the combinations between gameplays! I tried playing it in the car but dropped a piece between the seats...not easy to retrieve. But if you're in a building and not jiggling around it is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for grownups too So, we got this for my son, and he loved it. It's a challenging little puzzle game! I ended up taking it to work, and now it lives on my desk where my coworkers and I can work on the little challenges when we need a brain break (or a pick-me-up as the case may be!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good things come in small packages Very challenging game for all ages! The progressive levels of difficulty make it as easy or hard as you like based on age/ability. The size makes it great for travel too as you can put it almost anywhere. Love this game! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now what? Do you have any toys in your product line for kids who complete the booklet? My kid is six, and tested as gifted in visual-spatial intelligence when he was 3. He loves this toy and says that he feels challenged and is finishing the last few exercises as I type this (I promised him an ice cream sundae if he finished them all). Any recommendations?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stocking stuffer! I played this years ago with a family friend who was 3 yrs old and she loved it! I saw it online here and was very excited to order it as a stocking stuffer for my husband. It was a huge hit! He plays before bed to wind down and keeps it on his desk at work as a brain teaser break during the day. Love this puzzle!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Game! I bought this as a gift and ended up keeping it for our family. My 5 year old daughter continues to be interested. The bright colours are hard to resist! She's doing level 3 puzzles with some success. Now I'm planning to get one for my 85 year old father in law who loves sudoku and crosswords. My only issue is with the puzzle book. When I'm setting up a puzzle, it's hard on my eyes to switch between the puzzle board and booklet. I'm considering enlarging and copying the pages so the puzzles are index card size. I actually came on this site to see if such a companion product was available for sale- laminated perhaps? This would be great for older eyes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great puzzle! My kids and I LOVE this game!!! The puzzles are fantastic and my almost 7 year old daughters have been solving them. I like how the levels are scafolded and help solve the missing pieces. My only warning is that when these kids open it, sometimes the case is tilted and the beads just roll out. We've just lost one them. Very sad. Hope it can be replaced.
Date published: 2012-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, all puzzles are possible. Yes, all the 2d and 3d puzzles listed in the instruction booklet are solvable. I've even posted solutions to the most challenging ones on my web site. Sorry, but due to the requirements of this web site, (not to include personal information, etc.) I am not allowed to post a link to it. But it's not impossible to find. Your favorite search engine can be your friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost done!!!! Please does anyone know how to complete #4 in the challenging 2-D puzzles. PLEASE, please, please, please, please, please, please try to explain them over the comments. I'll be very grateful.
Date published: 2011-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most amazing puzzle game ever!!!! To get started you pick a 2-D or 3-D puzzle from the included booklet. I recommend 2-D first. For 2-D there are 6 levels each one has 12 puzzles Pro, Super Pro, Champ, Whiz, Expert and Genius. Then there are 4 super hard 2-D puzzles, I only have to finish #4 to complete 2-D puzzles. 3-D pyramid puzzles have 3 levels Whiz, Expert and Genius. There are 6 brain teasing puzzles per level. There are also 7 super hard puzzles. I only need #6 and #7 to complete all the 3-D puzzles! If you can't locate the 3-D side just flip over the pocket size case. The 2-D side is in the case. There should be a 48 page booklet with exactly 101 puzzles. Also 12 colorful already connected pieces. They should be tan, orange, dark blue, purple, light blue, yellow, red, dark green, pink, gray, white and light green. You play by picking the puzzle you choose you. then set it up as shown in the booklet and using the remaining pieces to solve it and you can't move the pieces it shows you to place in the booklet. If you do not know what a color looks like in the beginning of the booklet it puts a letter on each different piece, it even does that in the actually puzzles they have. For ages 7+, I don't recommend this to children 3 and under for there are small parts they can choke if tried to be swallowed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Figured it out!! It did take me a while, but I finally figured out the 3D level 3 puzzle 1...All the puzzles do come together, just keep trying and you will have fun!!
Date published: 2010-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great game This is a great game. But I'm pretty sure the first puzzle under 3-D level 3 is actually unsolvable. This is frustrating, because it makes me wonder which other kanoodle puzzles don't actually have solutions.....
