I see that two versions of the Twiddler puzzle mentioned here are now available for purchase in the US.

Does anyone know where to buy these in Europe or of a site that offers reasonably priced ( ~ $20 ) international postage?
Also does anyone know if the final kits include two colored pieces (as in the pictures from the toy fair) or if they are all just single colors?

You can find further info (producer, web page) at
https://www.facebook.com/TwiddlerTheMindRiddler/info

However, the web page http://www.twiddler.info/ ist still empty.
I expect that they will provide info about European distributors very soon.

Mine just arrived. I'm really surprised by the nice feel. The pieces and plate are magnetic and lead to a nice click between moves.

They included black pieces and colored pieces. Enough to make all levels of difficulty. Really nice.

I got the double and the triple circle version.

Just realized the link I used to buy wasn't in the original post:

Sorry, it looks like the link got truncated somehow. Let me try again:

Hmm! Not sure how reliable they (Hapetoys) are as a company. Looked into buying and every item in their catalogue gives a database error! Definitely need a UK distributor.

Not sure, but mine came reliably and quickly.

Playing around this again tonight, it really is a fun clever idea. And it seems to be executed with some love/care.

I've just discovered that Fat Brain Toys on Amazon ship these puzzles internationally (to Europe) for $20 - if you go to Amazon you may have to select "More Buying Choices" under the checkout button to find the ones sold by Fat Brain Toys - combined shipping for both variants is $26.

I've ordered the Triple Temptation ($29.95 + shipping), hopefully it will arrive in time for Christmas as the delivery estimate is 24th of December - 10th of January
