This is a strange puzzle I own, I am not sure of its name or origins. Any ideas?

There are thousands of such sliding puzzles in existence, just like there are thousands of 3x3 sticker mods. I wouldn't count on finding the original producer or purpose without some kind of copyright info.

I've got this one. DaMert company made them back in the 90's. There is a China company making cheaper copies of it now. Is there anything written on the back? DaMert has their name on their puzzles. The China company simply says "Made in China"

Thank you very much for your time. Upon further investigation it is made by Damert. In 1993 if you are interested.
Thank you again :)
