The Magic Circle
I own lots of puzzles and this is one of my favorites. You start with only two metal pieces. When assembled correctly it makes a ring or a perfect circle. Once assembled it measures 1.75 inches in diameter. The sleek design and simple problem draws people in. It fits in your pocket and feels nice in the hand. The artist from Finland who designed it must have had a wicked sense of humor because when assembled logically it doesn’t quite go together correctly.
Magicians buying this may be inclined to use it for a ring and rope routine.
For $1.00 more you can add a little satin bag to carry it in and help protect it.
