This amazing puzzle is a real head-scratcher, with a very clever solution to both! The Impossible Square puzzle comes with 16 wooden pieces arranged inside an elegant wooden box, as well as a red wooden square. It looks as if there is no way to stick this additional red piece in there with the other pieces inside the wooden box, but that is exactly what you are required to do.
The object is to rearrange the puzzle pieces so that all of them, including the red square, fit inside the wooden frame! 
Although this one seems downright impossible at first glance, this puzzle is solvable indeed; it has one of the most elegant solutions around! 
Comes complete with a wooden box and a lid to place all the pieces for safe-keeping.
4 Stars
A marvelous puzzle ba Martin Gardner
This geometric construction originally discovered by Martin Gardner has all attributes of brain teaser. One can understand it only by a fine geometrical introspection; and even then, it is still surprising. Only four stars from me, because one could have done a square frame matching the pieces more exactly, and so could have achieved a stronger surprise by the customer. With two - three millimeters tolerance along all edges, I think that the effect was diminished.
