Inside, players will find another set of spiral stairs and a big chest that can be looted for a gear piece. However, given the sheer size of Hogwarts Castle and its many hidden secrets, finding the key and figuring out which lock it fits can be tricky. The round animal heads are easy for small hands to grasp and it's a great way to build fine motor skills and colour recognition. At any celebration or party, borrow a wedding ring and slip it onto the key (using the secret method).

I managed to pick up a number of the puzzles famous during that period in flea markets, despite their rarity.I have to say that I think it is MUCH more robust than that and you will need to use considerable force to break it (maybe levering it wrongly). I am really quite pleased I have this in my collection - and may well get the other Cast Key just for completeness. This is just one of the famous puzzles which has enjoyed popularity since its creation during the 19th century British puzzle craze. At this point, the Room with a View achievement might pop up, rewarding players for finding the highest room in Hogwarts Castle.

I started with this one to get a feel for a relatively straight-forward one for a beginner (even though I have a couple of harder ones already).I got the first two, which were sorting the keys by length and sorting the keys by the number of holes at the top.

The key point of this puzzle is decisively navigating its labyrinth, in which exists one point of weakness for you to break through. Sam Loyd popularized this topological wonder as an advertising premium in the late 1800s, and since then, multitudes of stick and string arrangements have dangled from garments across the globe. They can go bu colour or by the shape of their feet, but the object is to get the animals all facing forward. And if you can't seem to do it on your own, this puzzle comes with excellent detailed illustrated instructions.

There are few places to go wrong and need a backtrack (there is a dead end at the beginning) but if you don't line things up perfectly then it will appear as if you have taken a wrong step (I did get lost once during the reassembly).

Engraved with our motto, “Epiphanies await the curious mind,” this beautiful brass-finished skeleton key will unlock a well-earned “aha!I also noted that EVERYONE I gave it to really enjoyed it and felt a definite sense of achievement afterwards. However, as a highly popular puzzle since its creation during the 19th century puzzle craze, the keys are in fact separable.
