The largest kumiki wooden puzzle collection in Canada?
Over 100 different puzzles. (A few are shown here.)
Back in the 1960's I began collecting these toy wooden puzzles.|
Whenever I came across one, I'd add it to my collection.
But these days I've noticed that they simply can't be found
in stores any more. Perhaps in this age of plastic and
computer games, they just aren't popular. Do you collect
wooden puzzles? Do you have any kicking aroung the house?
If you have any you'd be willing to sell, I'm interested! :-)
(For scale, wooden puzzles are typically about the size
of an apple.)

These things are easy to take apart.
