Exercise 6: Defintion of “Fun”

The toy I chose for this exercise is Cast Puzzle Cast Crab. It’s a mind teaser puzzle where the main objective (for this one specifically) is to liberate the Golden Fish from the Silver Crabs’ claws. The object of the puzzle is very simple to understand, but it is not easy to accomplish. This game requires strong concentration and focus from the subject, and they must use their mental knowledge to properly win the game. Because of these requirements, the game keeps you focused on the task at hand without killing any brains cells (rather, it strengthens them) and keeps you interested. The design for this mind teaser in particular is also attractively appealing and made of materials that function well with the design.

This game was given to me by my father from one of his work visits to Japan.
