3 Great Puzzles from LanLan
- 18 Aug, 2016
LanLan are one of my favourite puzzle manufactures. I don't know why, they just are. The moment I see a new LanLan come into the office I just have to pick it up and give it a few twists and turns. The twisting function on almost all of the LanLan puzzles I have collected over the past few months are second to none. The puzzles them selves are just outrageous and totally mesmerising.
From the normal 2x2 LanLan Cube to the 4x4 Rhombic Dodecahedron, in this blog I am going to list what I believe to be the coolest, most wacky puzzles that LanLan have ever created.
The LanLan cylindrical 3x3x2 was definitely my first choice, the high quality vinyl stickers and the way the core and mechanism itself moves are just second to none. The puzzle itself as a whole is brilliant. The method of solving of of these strange shaped puzzles is much the same as the standard 3x3x3 speed cubes but 'with a twist' as I like to say. Not only do you get a brilliant puzzle which is perfect for beginners or collectors, it also comes with a pretty decent price tag.
Now, this particular puzzle was the whole reason for this blog in the first place. I was sat in the office trying to solve mine and thought to myself 'what a great puzzle' and that led to the great idea of writing about my favourite LanLan products. With interlocking teeth on each layer mean this whole puzzle requires a new method of solving than the normal un-geared version. The high quality stickers compliment the brilliant build quality and really bring it to life. Please note that this puzzle is probably not best for beginners.
This 4x4x4 Rhombic Dodecahedron should be apart of any cubers collection. Based on a normal 4x4x4 Rubik's Cube this puzzle is definitely a lot harder to solve due to the way the puzzle looks and moves. Can you solve the 4x4x4 Rubik's Cube easily? Come give this one a go. I'm currently sat here writing this blog twisting and trying to solve my one, i can't do it. I give up. The rotation of each face is soft and smooth, the sticker quality is one of the best I've come across on a 'budget' puzzle and all in all I think this is just a brilliant buy.
