In case you are wondering which new hobby to take up and if you looking for something that would be interesting and challenging enough for your brain, there is a new leisure activity that you haven’t tried yet but will most likely find enjoyable. Jigsaw puzzles are a great exercise for our brains. They not only train our memory and problem-solving skills, but they also help children improve their IQ levels and adults – fight early onsets of Alzheimer’s and dementia. On top of that, puzzles give us that much-sought-after feeling of accomplishment that is vital for healthy self-esteem, good mood and overall wellbeing.

Nowadays when we are surrounded by technology and its unending list of entertainment opportunities that it offers, it is becoming harder and harder to stay focused. This is why both children and adults need to find time to relax and stay away from all the distractions of the modern world. And if you can use this time to engage in some sort of educational or brain-boosting activity, that makes it even better.

But puzzles have been around for long enough, you might say, and while some tend to be quite challenging, they are hardly something ground-breakingly fresh. Wooden 3D puzzles by UGears are a middle ground between jigsaw puzzles and scale models. Whether you are into scale models or not, you are most likely has come across some sort of construction set at some point in your life. The key best things about these sets are that they are 100% eco-friendly and that they illustrate the key principles of mechanics while being elegant and stylish. With UGears puzzles you will be able to take up a new hobby that will be useful on many levels: provide an exercise for your brain, provide a safe and pleasing experience, and help you create beautiful toys and elements of décor with your own hands.

Key principles behind wooden 3D puzzles by UGears

All parts of UGears puzzles are made of high-quality plywood and come pre-cut, so you do not need to use any tools to take them out of their frames, as you open the packaging and the incredible aroma of natural wood fills the room. You also don’t need glue to put the puzzle pieces together as they are joined together just like jigsaw puzzles.

Each set comes with an illustrated manual and while some sets can be assembled within 1 to 3 hours (‘Easy’ assembly level), the ‘Hard’ assembly-level requires between 9 and 16 hours. Puzzle sets are split into 3 difficulty levels and are equally appealing for children, starting from pre-school age, and adults. Covering a wide range of subjects, including transport, technology, office, and home accessories and décor elements, and even animals, UGears wooden puzzles are a new and revolutionary approach to both brainteasers and scale models.

Mechanical elements throughout all difficulty levels

UGears starts introducing mechanics with its coloring sets for pre-schoolers, the Build, and Color series. Each of the sets takes not more than 20 minutes to assemble and features many moving parts, starting from a bear that plays the guitar to the miniature Dutch windmill with rotating sails and wheel.

Sets within an ‘Easy’ assembly category are suited for both children and adults that would like to ease their introduction to the world of construction sets. And while children will appreciate the UGears Combine Harvester that moves on its own using a rubber-band motor, or the UGears Wheel Organizer, a smart stationery dispenser with a nautical twist, adults will enjoy spending their evenings assembling the realistic UGrears Tugboat that gently rocks on imaginary waves as it moves forward using its rubber-band motor mechanism or the steampunk UGears Monowheel, a tribute to some of the earliest transportation devices invented by humankind.

The ‘Intermediate’ assembly-level sets usually take between 4 and 8 hours to assemble and include whimsical jewelry boxes and storage cases, such as the beautiful UGears Antique Box with secret compartments and a smart sliding mechanism hiding underneath its Victorian-era exterior and the UGears Safe with a fully-functioning combination lock. The UGears Bike VM-02 and the UGears U-9 Grand Prix Car both feature a rubber band wind-up motor that allows them to travel for up to 9 feet in a single setting, while the Car also features a highly-detailed 16-valve V8 engine and a transmission that can be switched between three modes: forward, reverse, and idle.

Set that are listed within the ‘Hard’ category feature a high level of detail combined with the ultra-realistic elements that make each set a unique fully-operation transport model or home accessory. The UGears V-Express Train with Tender, for example, features an open exterior design that allows witnessing the work of its inner valves and pistons, while its wind-up engine allows this model to travel for up to 13 feet in a single setting! The UGears Dream Cabriolet VM-05 is not just a stylish tribute to the legendary vintage convertible of the 1950s. Featuring a number of moving elements, such as reclining front seats, moving windshield wipers, opening doors, trunk, and hood, and much more.

Whichever UGears puzzle kit you set your eyes upon, you are guaranteed to have a great time assembling a wooden scale model of your own. Each model will not only help your brain engage in a challenging and exciting activity but will also spark up your creativity and become a true inspiration to move forward.
