dexterity puzzle. The idea is to manipulate the six ball bearings - the buttons -
into the six holes on the Bloomer Girls clothing.
puzzle is a reproduction of a classic puzzle. It is made in Hong Kong. It works fine, and
is a good reproduction. The frame around the top is a bit crooked or
mis-alligned on most of them however.
A mechanical puzzle is a self-contained object, composed
of one or more parts, which involves a problem for one person to solve by manipulation
using logic, reasoning, insight, luck, and/or dexterity. - Jerry Slocum
