      How Are UGEARS Made?

      UGEARS wooden mechanical puzzles are made from high-quality plywood. The individual parts arrive as part of a board and can be easily popped out for simple assembly.

      The most amazing thing about UGEARS mechanical puzzles is they don’t require any glue to assemble — just slot the pieces together carefully and in the recommended order for a seamless and rewarding puzzling experience.

      How to Build UGEARS And Mechanical Puzzles

      Building UGEARS mechanical puzzles is a fun educational activity that helps people of all ages develop their mental, fine motor, and problem-solving skills. All it takes is dedication and a little bit of patience to assemble the puzzle pieces and put together the finalised product. 

      Begin by carefully examining all the tools and components included in the set. Pay attention to the instruction guide and illustrations, which will be very helpful if you have any difficulties during the puzzling process. After providing yourself with some basic understanding of how the end product is supposed to look, it’s time to start building.

      The first step is to assemble your parts, which will come in board format. Push the individual pieces from the back of the board to pop them out — avoid going from the front, as this might cause individual parts to rip or snap. Once you have everything you need, you can start putting together the toy. Follow the instructions carefully, using the provided toothpicks when required.

      Some UGEARS experts will recommend keeping some sort of lubrication, like candle wax, on hand if you find fitting together certain pieces difficult — particularly gears and axles.

      Don’t be put off if you struggle a little along the way — UGEARS mechanical wooden toys can be complicated, but it’s well worth it in the end.

      Where Are UGEARS Models Made?

      Despite the popularity of UGEARS, the company was actually only launched a few years ago, in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 2014. At the time, the startup offered only a handful of models, which has since expanded to include countless products to suit puzzlers of all ages and interests.

      When you purchase a UGEARS wooden mechanical toy, you can be sure you’re investing in a quality product. UGEARS mechanical puzzles are manufactured in Europe using the finest wooden materials, which not only guarantee longevity but are good for the planet.
