Have you heard of the Moebius belt? It’s a twisted surface where the front and back are indistinguishable. In this puzzle, obstacles are placed on that surface, blocking the way like a maze. As you move forward, the front becomes the back, which becomes the front again… a most perplexing feeling. “Belt” is the theme of the puzzle.

The Mobius is another great Hanamaya puzzle! Although, I do find the Puzzle Master & Hanamaya difficulty rating a little high. I was able to solve it within a couple minutes on the first go, whereas the O'Gear, with a lower rating, was more challenging personally. Thoroughly enjoying these puzzles!
Wonderful! Having this amazing structure turned into a cast puzzle is a great achievement! The solution is not very difficult, but the design is one of the best.
Solving this puzzle is fun and it isn't hard. The design is really creative because it looks deceivingly simple but you need to pay attention to... both(?) sides of the strip to be able to solve it.
Best thing about this puzzle is that it's a Mobius strip, which is cool. The puzzle itself is just ok. I would put it on the easy end of the 8s. Took me about 15 minutes, and I'm slower than most. It's a good one to give to younger kids because they can figure out immediately how to go about solving it, and from there it's just a matter of patience until you find the right path.
