3D Wooden Model Puzzles and Brain Teasers Reviews and Tips

Share on:

The goal of any learning tool is to ease concepts and simplify these and make them inviting for students. This is what 3D wooden models do when electronics, and coding blend with building kits. These kits are inviting and fun to assemble, and once you get in touch with these toys, everything else flows.  

This is why I love to review these models and the truth is there are so many options that everyone can have fun with them.  

And speaking about options…  

I ‘m going to include models from two of the best wooden model brands available. These are kits that are super fun to assemble and people enjoy a great time building them.  

Also…  

I want to include some 3D puzzle models as well that look very realistic. You will have a lot of fun assembling these and once finished they look amazing.  

That’s the aim of today’s post and I hope you enjoy these models as much as I did writing about them.

3D Wooden Puzzle Models and Brain Teasers

Among the best 3D wooden models you can find, we have 3D wooden puzzles. In a nutshell, these are like building with LEGOs, but made of wood.  

The reason I picked these models here is because they are challenging, fun, and educative. These four models will give you basic knowledge about mechanics.  

Also…  

Puzzles help develop a sense of order, since you can put all the pieces on the table and try your best to get the thing done.  

Or…  

You can follow instructions (which come inside the box) and follow each step until you finish. This looks small but in the end it develops habits and a work culture that helps get things done.  

Every skilled puzzle assembler has a strategy. A way to approach things. With regular 2D puzzles, they usually classify pieces by color and start from there.  

Others assemble all the corners and edges first and they go from there.  

For instance, my wife likes to do both things. And if she puts two pieces together and doesn’t know where they belong, she saves these blocks for later. She knows that at some point those will come handy and will find their place.  

But my point is not to brag about my wife’s skills, but to tell you she handles these puzzles with a strategy. This strategic thinking develops with practice, and 3D wooden puzzles add fun to the mix.

Every time I see these models I find myself delving into their details. You can take a close look and find details everywhere you look.  

More than often, these details tell you something about the inner workings of the model. This is the case with the Ugears Monowheel wooden model.  

This fantastic puzzle is perfect for having a great time assembling it and playing with it.   This model is a mechanical wheel in essence. This means the wheel moves thanks to some mechanism inside it. A set of gears will take this monowheel from point A to point B.  

These gears get its power thanks to a clock-spring that when released activates the gears. It is important to not over tight this spring as this may cause malfunction in the future. The purpose of the model is to show a bit of movement and look cool while doing it.  

But before being able to do that, you’ll have to dedicate time and effort to put its 300 pieces together. When you complete this, you’ll be able to play and have fun with it.

This UGears car is another fantastic mechanical model that car lovers will enjoy. Don’t let the size and toyish look of this model fools you. It is a Grand Prix Car model that will out run ants, snails, and other non-high speed insects and animals. 

I’m kidding… 

But what is true is this model uses a V8-shape motor to spin its wheels. In a more serious talk, it does develop some speed. The first time I saw this puzzle car, it impressed me how fast the pistons in the motor move, giving the car a bit of speed. 

My bet is you’ll get impressed too. 

But… 

This model is first a puzzle, and then a racing car. This means that to have fun with it, you first have to assemble its 348 pieces together and ensure all works fine. 

You’ll spend a few hours putting together the whole model, but at the end of the day, it will worth your time. 

No tools nor glue will have a role in your assembly process. It is you and the car model on the road. Plain and simple. Will you take this challenge?

Mechanical Model Kits Tips

Something important about these mechanical model kits is they are more than puzzles. At the end of the day, these models will have a mechanical outcome. 

This makes very important to ensure that all the pieces assembled fit nice and smooth.

Often, people get frustrated by the small pieces that sometimes are hard to fit. But the worst thing you can do is force anything into place. 

This will not produce any good outcome and the most probable is that your model will not run as intended. 

Take your time to build the model. Ensure nothing gets damaged during the assembly process and have fun doing it.
