Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0882479A1] The toy or puzzle is in the shape of a sphere or hexahedral surface made up of a number of curved components in engagement with one another via tongued and grooved edges, and can be slid relative to one another by a system of radial T-pieces (4) with radial arms (46), springs (7) and balls (8). The components are connected to an inner spherical core made from two hollow hemispherical sections (10, 11). One of the outer components of the toy has a lug which allows it to be suspended, for example, from a key ring.
