“Hell, thy name is Travel Brain Benders! I think we’re all angry we’re not as clever as we like to think!”

Brain Benders Full Moon

Initial thoughts: Hello hell, thy name is Travel Brain Benders! These wooden puzzles claim to be ‘fun and rewarding’ and an ideal solution when you’re on a car or plane journey. Not among the members of this house who ended up throwing both of the ones we were sampling in fits of temper. I think we were all angry that we aren’t as clever as we like to think we are!

We tested two: Drumsticks and Full Moon. They are really simple puzzles designed to test your mind – and send you round the twist.

We liked: Travel Brain Benders have a nice wooden construction and are easy to manipulate. You can even pop them in your bag and take them round to grandma and granddad’s house and drive them mad for a couple of hours too. And best of all, they offer a website to visit when you’re well and truly stumped and in need of a clue or two. Or three or four. Or like me, you check out the clues then sit there one evening tinkering with it then declare: “I’ve done it, I’ve done it!” to everyone’s shock and amazement.

Weren’t keen on: Travel Brain Benders are just so darn infuriating. That’s about it really. They made us angry. I wouldn’t mind, but the ones we were testing were at the ‘easy’ end of the tricky spectrum!
