kate5kiwis: the LONPOS

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

the LONPOS


Daddy has brought home this very cool LONPOS puzzle. It's a brain teaser, and J10 loves it (his electronic SUDOKU puzzle has been put on the shelf.. temporarily)
Lonpos is a pyramid puzzle which consists of 12 building pieces in various shapes that can create more than 20,000 different combinations. The player starts off with a layout (problem) of few pieces in pre-arranged positions. The goal in each problem is to complete 2D or 3D pyramids by putting the rest of puzzles back to board.

That looks like a great tool to keep in the classroom to keep kids busy. They are LOVING Sudoku right now!

I'm sure I've said it, but your crew is just adorable. The long hair on your boys would make me just want to play with it all the time. Do you do that? ;-)

Hiya, Kiwi!
We supply the award winning version of this game (we redesigned the packaging, manual, etc., to make it more literate and to make it acceptable to toy stores, schools, etc. - there is nothing worse than giving children someting that is grammatically incorrect or misleading!)

It is a great game and you may read some of the toy and game gurus' comments, along with a few media reviews, on our website www.micamericas.com.

Thank you for your positive assessment of the game. In a couple of months, we shall be introducing LON-303 which will have the original 101 challenges PLUs another 202 to keep you on your toes!

Best regards,
