I got a set of these for my 9-year-old nephew for Christmas and it made his parents' 6-hour drive home much quieter and more enjoyable. And he was actually doing something with his hands and his mind instead of staring at a tablet or playing a game on his phone. When I was wrapping them my husband asked if he could open one to try it (there are 16 individual packs) and of course I said no, they're for kids. But I got him a set for his birthday last week and he loves them!

Would these be suitable for an eight-year-old?

I don't think enjoying these puzzles is age-related. I think there are both children and adults who will like them. If the child has an inquiring mind, likes a challenge, does not get frustrated too easily, and enjoys persisting until they succeed, they will enjoy these puzzles. That said, they vary somewhat in difficulty so that helps. I know an adult who got great satisfaction from figuring them all out without much effort, and a child who kept coming back to one, until she finally solved it. I think some eight-year-olds would definitely enjoy them.

So much fun!

These puzzles are fun for kids and adults alike!…
