A few days ago Andreas asked me if I knew anything about this
"Of course!" says I. One I have on my desk. And the other I just happen to know where to find it.
So just for Andreas and the benefit of the twisty community, I called up my dear friend and asked if I could borrow a toy for a week or two. He told me that my collection just happened to extend to a little office across the border in Shenzhen and I could have anything I wanted at any time. (and you wonder why he is such a dear friend.) Ok, so today I met him for lunch and he was very kind in not making me travel across to see him. He brought me the puzzle massager! I already have the Chi Gung ball so I didn't need that one.
For your viewing pleasure I made videos of the Puzzle Massager
, and the Chi Gung Ball
Eat your heart out Hendrik

These are not made of ABS plastic. These are made of that plastic from the mid 80's that is really brittle. I'll ask Uwe next time I call him, but today I was in a hurry and had to fix his phone again so I had no time to ask all these pressing questions.
There were not many made. Uwe told me 3 of each in the white. He said he released the puzzles in black for sale. I can't remember how many he sold though. I do know that he owes me one from somewhere in the mid-80's when mine went astray
And He has promised me that he will open the molds for my 50th.....
So see, my dear friend is going to be with us for a long long time (and making puzzles for all that while) to come because I'm still a young thing
