With modern high school students graduating classes on a keyboard, some of the fundamental hand skills are starting to suffer. A recent study of M.I.T. math students showed a better result for those students working on cars because of the involvement with their hands. It is our goal to design fun toys that exercise fundamental skills that are being ignored in modern technology. As we progress into the future, the lack of focus on simple eye-and-hand motor skills (EQ) while stimulating the brain (IQ) has become a primary concern of the puzzle developer.
The puzzle is not designed for a brain teaser that has a simple solution that requires a memorization of maneuvers, but a multi-solutioned puzzle that allows creativity to form and keep the mind inquisitive and challenged. Like a real jigsaw puzzle, one has to focus upon moving a puzzle piece into a specific place. Simple problem solving, spacial relationships, dexterity, creativity, and temperament are all enhanced with the Eni Puzzle. The Eni Puzzle Catalog includes puzzles with braille for the visually impaired.
