Do any of you guys living in Australia know, or have seen any square-1's available anywhere in Australia recently? They're everywhere in the US so surely they should be still available out here somewhere.

Thanks,
Wayne

You need to use http://www.altavista.com to translate the webpage from Japanese to English (copy and paste the url for the web address).
On a side note...The company lists the Dogic as one of the puzzles for sale but they have no stock :(

Hi Wayne,

I know Square 1 puzzles are easily available in the US and Canada (made by Irwin toys).
2 or 3 years ago Irwin toys had a "so-so" web site, but since they have been bought up
and the company presence on the web is limited. (the web site isn't very good)

You can see on this web page a map of Canada, the US and Australia (only the US map is "linked")

http://www.irwintoy.com/other/prods_games.html

However if you wish to send them an e-mail go to this link:

http://www.irwintoy.com/other/contactus.html

If they don't respond to your inquiry, you could always look into the Rubik's distributor in Australia
...I know the Square 1 puzzle isn't a Rubik puzzle but maybe the distributor knows who,
and where you can find them?

International Distributor
Name: Crown and Andrews Pty. Ltd.
Address: 19 - 21 Euston Street
Rydalmere NSW 2116
Sydney
Phone: 61 2 9898-3555
Fax: 61 2 9898-3155
E-mail: sales@crownandandrews.com.au

Hope this help a wee bit !
Michael
:wink:

Thanks, Michael. I've sent Crowna an email and I also asked them if they intend to get the new Rubik's range in.

The most common place to find this puzzle in the USA is at Toys-R-Us stores. But, instead of Irwin Toys, it is marketed by Pavilion (same puzzle, different packaging). I don't suppose that there are Toys-R-Us stores in Australia.

We do have Toys'R'Us stores here in Australia but they are simply the same tiys you find in any shop, just more of them.

Unfortunately in Australia, if you have unusual interests, you're not commercially worth anything. If you're into Pokemon, Barinas & Colroado shoes, then you'll do ok.

For example, in Miranda Westfield (a shopping centre). There are several hundred stores. Yet, each fashion store sells the same stuff. Each toy stop sell the same toys.. eyc. you get the idea.

If you want a puzzle, get a jigsaw, or one of those 3d things. That's it.
