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.
Made by Oskar Van Deventer from the Netherlands.

4 out of 5 stars
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.
