The first time I solved this it took about 15 seconds and I was like "wtf did I just spend money on." But the amount of time I've spent playing with it as a desk toy is several hours at this point, I really enjoy half-solving it and then letting the one end hang from the other and pushing it back and forth. And it's kinda fun to show to non-puzzle people.

This is a beautiful little puzzle. So satisfying and lovely to hold and display.

Nice smooth feel, and the click when it loop comes together is delightful. Perhaps the easiest of all the Hanayamas. It's a good one to give to a friend or family member who isn't well-versed with puzzles, as a way to build up their confidence to tackle other puzzles.

The simplistic nature of this puzzle makes it one of my favorite Hanayama puzzles. To solve it takes a simple "AHA" moment of discovery, and it is done. The fell of this puzzle makes it also a nice tactile puzzle, like most of the other Hanayama puzzles.

Cast Loop is among my favourite Hanayama puzzles. Although it is a simple puzzle,it may have you fiddling for hours before the inevitable 'aha' moment. Also among the most beautiful Hanayama puzzles created. Once solved,it can be used as a pendant as a leather necklace is included - a nice little touch. A good buy for collectors and beginners.

My parents got this for me for Christmas 2 years ago. Solved it almost immediately, but I still loved it. Ever since then, I've worn it on a chain around my neck like a pendant (the leather strap it came with for that purpose broke), and I must say, it makes a surprisingly effective ice breaker!

Nice and fun puzzle.

This puzzle is definitely terrific! I like it's smooth feeling in my hand, and the satisfying solution. Took me a 15 minutes or so, which is longer than my expectation. For a level one it's a little tricky, you need to think outside the "loop". I found that master puzzlers often had trouble with this one, but rookies solved it fairly quick. What I like best is that it come with a string so that you could put it on like a sort of necklace. Have it with me everyday now. In your puzzle collection, this one is unmistakable a must-have.

This puzzles is amazing. I got it at our Christmas Eve party along with Vortex. I figured it out right away and passed it to a few of my cousins to figure out. No one figured it out. Very cool puzzles, one of the best low leveled Hanayamas.

It's hard to give such a simple puzzle too high a rating, as there's just not enough going on. It's pleasant to see and to hold and the solution can be surprisingly untuitive for some people, but in the end there's not much here. Even as a designated "easy first puzzle" for friends, I don't like that you should start with the disassembled puzzle (since the solution is trivial if you start with the assembled one). I like leaving my puzzles all nicely assembled on my desk ready to attract the innocent.

The puzzle can be really easy, I solved it from the not-put-together state in about 1.5 minutes. Some people seem to solve it in <30 seconds. But occasionally someone will fiddle with it for very long periods of time (up to an hour in one case) before finally giving up in disgust. So it can be hard for some people. Oddly, it seems the smartest or soberest people have the most difficulty with this puzzle.

Yes, it is easy, but watching my friends fiddle for 15-30 minutes is priceless! Good solid puzzle and beautifully crafted...

This puzzle was of course very simple, but oddly fun! I like to carry it around just to play with it.
