Giant Soma Cube
The Soma Cube is a solid dissection puzzle invented by Danish mathematician Piet Hein. Our giant version is made from seven different coloured covered soft foam pieces and forms a 2.7 metre cube. The pieces can be used to make other shapes such as a bed. It comes with two mini wooden versions of the Soma puzzle and with Piet Hein’s game of Con-Tac-Tix.
