Good points:
Atttractive,absorbing
Bad points:
Not as clever a design as other puzzles we have bought, and the recipient says he seemed to complete it by chance rather than skill, so not as satisfying a challenge

Stuart, Warsaw (Poland) I enjoy solving puzzles

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Initially an interesting looking puzzle.
Bad points:
I bought this puzzle to add to my collection as it looked quite nice and I had an idea that the solution may be interesting, possible using Bernoulli's principle. Unlike the other reviewer whose ball did not fit the tube, this one did. Although I managed to get the ball out by turning the puzzle upside down and shaking, this was only by luck, after checking out the solution on the eureka website I was disappointed to find it entailed cutting out and using a piece of paper. To sum up, this can hardly be called a puzzle and you will not get a eureka moment from it especially when you see the solution.

James, Edinburgh

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It's nicely made (apart from one fatal error) and looks quite attractive.
Bad points:
Initially I thought this was a really clever puzzle - a bottle with a tube sticking out of it containg a small red ball. The problem is to remove the ball from the bottle. Only the thing is, the ball is actually wider than the tube. So how could it possibly come out ??
In the end I gave up and looked up the solution on the manufacturer's website. It isn't a very clever puzzle, it's just a badly made one. The ball shouldn't be wider than the tube. So it really is an impossible puzzle.
