    Wooden puzzle thing

    My friend recently got given this wooden puzzle thing by some old local guy. It consists of two small wooden blocks of different colors. You have to pull them apart (not much force needed - it's a puzzle). Anyway it's really good fun (although extremely frustrating) to solve this. Does anyone know where I might be able to get this??

    Try WanChai

    You can definitely find one of those puzzle things in the small toy shops in Wan Chai.

    Go to the corner of Johnston Road and Tai Yuen St. (MTR Exit A3) and you'll see that Tai Yuen St. is a crowded street market. Walk down the street and look out for a bunch of toy stores behind the street vendors. They're filled with fun goodies, everything from Hello Kitty to Plastic BB guns. My friends recently bought a similar puzzle thing like you're talking about, except instead of wooden boxes, they're metal rings.

    Also, if you don't find it now, you should come back after the Xmas season, as right now all those stores swapped their shelves with all Xmas decorations and put their usual stock in the backroom.

    Good Luck.

    LCX in Ocean Terminal in TST has them i think - all the way at the back next to Starbucks, it's got a bunch of quirky little toys and gadgets like that.
