Claims:

I hereby claim my invention as a geometric functional toy puzzle:



1. I claim my invention as the first of its kind according to its exterior appearance and Functional design. I also claim four different exterior designs for this invention. The design of the exterior appearance of this invention could either be designed Octagonally shaped with thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of color coded tablets or parts, Or it could be designed Cylindrically shaped with thirty-two or, thirty-six pieces of Color coded tablets or parts. I additionally; claim two different attachment or connective Designs for the functional parts to this invention. The functional parts of each of the Four different exterior designs to this invention are the five eight sided revolvable Mainframes and the thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of color coded tablets or parts of The invention. The attachment or connective designs for each of the five eight sided Mainframe and for each of the thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of color coded tablets Or parts, to each of the four different exterior designs of this invention, could be Designed with either Triangular shaped or “T” shaped grooves. These four different Exterior designs, and two different attachment or connective groove designs, and the Five eight sided revolvable mainframe design, to this object of invention, are the Subjects of claims that I claim for my invention.

Description:
[0001] I hereby am disclosing the description of my invention.

[0002] This invention that I am describing is a Functional Toy Puzzle.

[0003] I will describe the function and the design of this puzzle without numerically specifying The measurement of size of each related functional part of the puzzle.

[0004] Primarily, this toy puzzle functions on five revolvable eight sided mainframes, with each Of the five eight sided mainframe is capable of turning three hundred sixty degrees Clock-wise, or counter-clock-wise. Additionally; this puzzle could be designed with Either thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of color coded rectangular, or curved shaped tablets Or parts that would be capable of moving, on the object of the five eight sided Mainframes of the puzzle, from mainframe to mainframe in a shuffle like manner.

[0005] This puzzle also consists of a cylindrically shaped shaft attached completely through The center bore hole of each of the five designated eight sided mainframes of the puzzle, Allowing revolvable function for each of the five eight sided mainframes of the puzzle. The functional attachment of the thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of color coded tablets or Parts to the five eight sided mainframes of the puzzle could be connected by the design of Protruded triangular shaped, or “T” shaped grooves designed on the back surface of each Of the thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of color coded tablets or parts. And the functional Attachments of the five eight sided mainframes to the thirty-two, or thirty-six pieces of Color coded tablets or parts of the puzzle, could be connected by the design of slitted Triangular shaped, or “T” shaped grooves designed on the profile surface of each of the Five eight sided mainframes of the puzzle. The object of this toy puzzle design is to Organize or match the eight different color of the thirty-two pieces of color coded Tablets or parts into eight rows of four alike pieces of colored coded tablets on four Of the five eight sided mainframes of the object after mixing it up. And or if the puzzle Consists of thirty-six pieces of color coded tablets or parts, with eight different colors, The object of this puzzle design would be to match the thirty-six pieces of color coded Tablets or parts into eight rows of four and five alike pieces of color coded tablets, Respectively, to each alternate row on the five eight sided mainframes of the object After mixing it up. The rotational movement of each of the puzzle's five eight sided Mainframes and the shuffling moving action of each of the thirty-two, or thirty-six Pieces of colored coded tablets or parts gives this toy a puzzle like function operation.

BACKGROUND OF INVENTION

[0006] I have conducted my own patent search and found there is no invention related or Similar to the functional and exterior design of my invention. I therefore, believe I am the first and original inventor of this new functional and ornamental design Of this toy puzzle invention. This invention pertains to the field of toys and games Of entertainment designed for both children or adults.
