Ivy Kites is a puzzle based on the idea of extending the theme from Eitan Cher's Ivy Cube. This time the cutting pattern is applied to a trapezoidal icositetrahedron. There are two possible ways that the puzzle could have been sliced. One would be very shallow slices allowing the 3-way and 4-way corners to turn. The other way is to make the slices as deep as possible, turning on the 3-way corners. This makes a more difficult puzzle, and is the way the Ivy Kites is sliced.

Other Items Needed:

Dye: If you want the puzzle to be black, you can dye the pieces yourself with a nylon dye such as RIT or Dylon. Or you can order the puzzle in the new MJF material, which is lower cost, and it comes dyed black!

Stickers: Please contact me for the sticker template. If you want professionally cut stickers, I recommend Oliver’s Stickers or Chewie's Custom Stickers.

Screws: Eight 12mm M3 pan head screws required, available in hardware stores or on the web.

Springs: Eight springs needed, available in web puzzle shops. I get mine from HK Now Store.

Degree of Difficulty:

Assembly: Moderately easy to assemble.

Solving: Difficult to solve.


Ivy Kites turns well, and the mechanism is stable.

Have fun!

Welcome! My goal when designing puzzles is to create geometries that are visually striking and have a complexity belied by their apparent simplicity. Many of my puzzles use odd axis systems, and exhibit strange properties such as jumbling and shape-shifting. Enjoy!
