Hanoi Tower



AGELESS FUN - TOWER OF HANOI
Japanese mathematic school books explain the Tower of Hanoi. Our Tower of Hanoi toy is loved by everyone, children and adults.
Students use this Tower as a model for their PC programming. Ajoy for puzzle and riddle loving kindergardeners. Small infants love moving the pieces around, over and over. Such a mathematical challenge. Kindergardeners and elementary school kids have fun competing with their parents. Tiny kids are entranced as they play with the brightly coloured rings. The wooden rings clang together in an almost musical way. Just be sure to take care with the smallest ring, it could be popped into someone's little mouth.



CHALLENGING STRATEGY
Move all coloured rings from the Black rod to the other rods
★GAME RULES
1. Rings must be moved one per turn.
2. A big ring cannot be placed on a smaller ring.
3.The rings cannot be placed anywhere but on the rods.
ADVICE
Please watch the image of this Hanoi Tower as the first preliminary 8 steps to the puzzle are presented. It is a good hint. At first only a few rings are moved, later as more rings move the more difficult the puzzle becomes. As the rings pile on each other, each additonal ring doubles the challenge.Try to pile all the rings in their correct order on a different rod. Good Luck!

Once you have figured out the puzzle see how fast you can do it !
Ginga Kobo Toys record for completing this puzzle is 71 seconds. The champion was Ginga Kobo Toys 21 year old daughter.

TOWER OF HANOI EXCERPT FROM WIKIPEDIA
The puzzle was invented by the French mathematician Édouard Lucas in 1883. There is a legend about an Indian temple which contains a large room with three time-worn posts in it surrounded by 64 golden disks. Brahmin priests, acting out the command of an ancient prophecy, have been moving these disks, in accordance with the rules of the puzzle, since that time. The puzzle is therefore also known as the Tower of Brahma puzzle. According to the legend, when the last move of the puzzle is completed, the world will end. It is not clear whether Lucas invented this legend or was inspired by it.
If the legend were true, and if the priests were able to move disks at a rate of one per second, using the smallest number of moves, it would take them 264−1 seconds or roughly 585 billion years or 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 turns to finish.

CALCULATION OF MOVES AND RING POSITION
1 Ring=1Move,2 Rings=3 Moves, 3 Rings = 7 Moves,4 Rings=15 Moves.
If the No. of Rings = n, then the Ring position may be determined more directly from the binary (base 2) representation of the move number (the initial state being move #0, with all digits 0, and the final state being #2n−1, with all digits 1). For Example, 10 rings would be 2 to the 10th degree-1 (1024-1) = 1023 Moves. If one move equals one second the table shows the time required....

6 Year Old Playing with Tower of Hanoi
1 & 1/2 year old boy- Is it fun putting rings on the rods?


NEUROLOGICAL REVERSAL VERSION
Once conquering the puzzle try reversing the order of the rings, an upside down triangular pyramid. This puzzle version is somewhat confusing, a great challenge to the more brilliant.The first genius to try this reversal was Professor Ben Wada.
Nagano University, Professor Ben Wada puzzles through the reversal of the Hanoi Tower without a second thought.
I would like to thank Professor Ben Wada for his brilliant insights and academic support concerning the Tower of Hanoi.

インテリアに馴染む、散らかっていても気にならないオモチャで 日本製の木のオモチャを探していて見つけました。 大人になっても遊べるってとこも気に入りました。 スベスベで気持ちいいです。 知育にもよさそう。今は3歳の娘が適当に楽しく遊んでます。

幼児の知能発育に良い影響があると思います。実際に手元に届いてからでない分かりませんが、幼児の取り扱いにも安全のようですので安心です。
