Keep the kids busy for a while on Christmas morning as they work hard to figure out Newton’s Anti Gravity Puzzle! This fantastic and strangely simple puzzle is a fun brain teaser that seems to defy the laws of logic, but it uses the wonderfully weird properties of physics for an unexpected solution.

A red wooden cylinder shaped a bit like a rocket is nestled in a wooden cup. The object is to remove the cylinder without moving or tipping the cup. Sounds easy, but it’s a devilishly difficult job! Sloped edges on the point of the cylinder prevent you getting a fingerhold, and the solid wood doesn’t have any give. So what’s the secret?

This cool puzzle makes a great gift for anyone who loves a riddle. It’s the perfect size for a stocking stuffer, and it comes with a bit of info on Newton himself, so you can sneak in a bit of education, too. And if there’s really no solving it, let out a sharp sigh of frustration across the top and see if that helps you think clearly!
