Captured Worlds

Captured Worlds is a set of five pop-out, glue, and fold-up polyhedra. The five used in Captured Worlds are known as the Platonic Solids. They are decorated with fanciful scenes rendered in six-point perspective by internationally-known artist Dick Termes. This unique perspective system allows an entire three-dimensional surrounding to be projected onto the polyhedra. Ages 13 to adult.

Frabjous
$28.95
Frabjous is a sculpture and geometric assembly puzzle designed by George Hart. The swirling geometric form is composed of thirty identical acrylic pieces. Mathematically, the planes of the shape are the face planes of a “great rhombic triacontahedron,” a self-intersecting polyhedron with thirty rhombic faces. But the puzzle piece is a carefully designed subset of the rhombus that doesn’t intersect copies of itself. Instructions are included. 17 cm (7 inch) diameter when assembled. Ages 16 and up.
