Are you a conservationist or environmentalist ? If so, you can help us save monkeys.
Alfons EYCKMANS has locked 2 monkeys in a BURR with a usual appearance. You will have to free them, and it will not be easy. It will take you many hours to get these 2 little monkeys out of this puzzle.
The burr itself is a classic 18 piece burr with the monkeys added. The puzzle has 20 pieces. This puzzle has a fairly high level of difficulty. It is not to be given to an inexperienced amateur.
It was made in BLACK EBONY, ROSE WOOD and VIOLET WOOD by Maurice VIGOUROUX. The monkeys are in aluminium. Its size is 4cm.
Do not be fooled by its small size, it is formidable and works perfectly!
This is the second version of this game. It has been re-edited in small size and precious wood to accompany its twin : FREE-THE-GORILLA which is with the same wood and the same size.
As usual, only a small quantity of games have been produced, this in a handcrafted way with precious woods. There is no gluing. The dead angles are cut in one piece.
The woods are simply polished and lightly waxed.
Number of elements 20
Movements (Level) 10.2.14.7.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.1.1.2
The game is delivered without solution. On request, a BURRTOOL file will be sent to you by e-mail.
Many thanks to Alfons EYCKMANS for his kind permission.
