16 Animali, or 16 Animals(top) is a wooden puzzle of carved animal shapes that join together to form a rectangle. Used as building blocks, the animals can also be stacked in all sorts of way to form various sculptures. This puzzle was followed by 16 Pesci, or 16 Fish (Bottom) which is a similar toy made up of all sorts of sea creatures.

  1. May be forty years ago when I was a young girl I made this puzzle out of plywood and I still have it. But it looks much better here!

  2. I wish I could play with these they look wonderful.
