The Plex puzzle ball is a standard six piece, interlocking ball puzzle. All of the pieces are identical in size and shape, but can vary in colour. Putting the puzzle together is a matter of arranging the pieces in their proper order and sliding a final locking piece in place to secure the shape. Puzzle balls require skill in holding the shapes together and patience in arranging the final pieces.
