If you’d like to take your puzzling skills beyond the 2D level, a 3D mechanical puzzle may be just the thing to stimulate your solving skills.

This wooden one from Ugears is quite unusual. It’s shaped like a safe, which you assemble yourself. Best of all, the safe actually works once assembled. It’s a great way to challenge critical thinking, whether for yourself or for a child (it’s recommended for those 8 years and up).

Ugears has many other beautiful puzzles like this, such as a gears system, a flower, a tram on rails and more. It’s a unique way to spend some time — especially if you’re feeling like you need a break from social media overload.
