Product Description

Note: Our level rating system is different than Hanayama's.  Hanayama's level 1 is equivalent to our level 5.... level 6 is equivalent to our level 10.

In the summer of 1997, I saw two mackerels that had somehow managed to get into the sardine tank at the aquarium. Watching these two fish unable to blend in with the shoal of sardines made me wonder if they were on a journey of self-discovery.
What sort of adventure will they have?
Imagining this led to the conception of six cast puzzles based on oceanographic subjects.
Subject: Starfish
Two mackerels jostling for a starfish. Separate the starfish from them, and then put them back together.

This is the easies puzzle (in terms of level) that I have. I bought it because it is very beautiful and I wanted to check if the solution is the one I came up with. It appeared that the idea is the same, but the solution itself was a bit longer that I expected. Overall, I like this puzzle!

I bought the set of 11 level two Hanayama puzzles, and this is the last one I unboxed. Of all the level twos, this one is the hardest. I have only played with it for a day or two, but I can't get the darn ring to budge. I look forward to a good challenge in the day(s) to come!

I got one as Christmas present and solved it in less than 10 minutes. Maybe I was lucky. I admire people who can invent and achieve such puzzle. I think it is far easier to solve the puzzle than to invent it. Bravo

I found this to be one of the toughest of the marine series, harder than the Seahorse. It is not clear where the exit lies, or if you are getting close to it. Still not hard compared to the 4 and 5 star Hanayamas.
