Snake Blocks by Clara von Zweigbergk


Snake Blocks


A classic toy, reinvented in wood and elastic.


Twist and turn the colorful blocks...


...to create an endless variety of shapes and patterns.


a swan


an elephant

a caterpillar


a frog


a cat

a dog


...and anything else you can imagine.


Origin Story Snake Blocks were inspired by vintage folding puzzles such as the Rubik’s Twist, the Magic Snake and the Hungarian Kigyó Ügyességi Játékok or The Snake Skill Game. Areaware carries forward this classic toy legacy by introducing the only wooden version of this classic toy to the market. Snake Blocks are made of 24 painted isosceles triangles and can be twisted and transformed into many shapes and figures. A quick internet search will bring up a range of fan videos and tutorials on how to solve and arrange the Snake Block puzzle.
