Double Trouble Maze Puzzle by Jean Claude Constantin / Recent Toys

Many years ago in Ancient Greece (if you believe myths) a skillful architect Daedalus had designed the tricky Labyrinth with a purpose to hold the monster Minotaur so that the hero Theseus could kill it. Just imagine what work Daedalus had done for you now to have that Double Trouble Gear Maze by Constantine!

Visual Description

Double Trouble Wooden Puzzle by Constantin (or Double Gear Maze Puzzle by Constantin and Recent Toys) is another amazing work of the inventive designer.

Jean-Claude Constantin definitely likes to tease our brain with his tricky, complex and flawless puzzles and mazes, and this one is not an exception.

Main Features

The puzzle is two gear mazes attached to the third one. It actually reminds me of an owl’s eyes. They are the wooden and acrylic circles with metal balls inside.

Unlike the Minotaur Labyrinth, you don’t need to hold anyone in it but you need to extract the balls out of the mazes at the same time. There is a starting point indicated on the puzzle.

The maze comes in the wooden box with the plastic window. The manufacturer doesn’t provide the solution, leaving you on your own. I like this fact, it gives no chance to cheat.

The company states that the estimated assembly time is around 8 hours, though it depends on your skills and experience.


I find this kind of puzzle a real “happy medium”. It’s not that pricey and not that easy to solve. So you need to make efforts to find a solution. 

Double Trouble would be a great present to a person who likes to develop strategies, use their logics and spatial skills or to someone who lacks it…Like me, for example.
