Something mathematical inside (Ring Case)

This is NOT an official Pluredro blog but I cannot help but writing about one of the tools of the new sequential discovery puzzle, Ring Case.
This coming Thursday, December 26th at 07:00 AM Brisbane time is the day of releasing two new kinds of puzzles.

The type of one of the two puzzles is a so-called sequential discovery puzzle which recently became very popular. We have produced more than 100 of them which is quite a lot for us.

This time, I have something to expect that would be fun. I cannot write about the details here. The only thing I can write is about one of the tools inside the puzzle. It would possibly be recognized what for it is by someone interested in mathematics or math enthusiasts. I wonder who will notice it first? Sorry that I cannot write it clearly, but if you notice what it is, then you will be able to guess the inside structure of the puzzle which is not visible from the outside.

He-he, I am looking forward to knowing whether puzzle lovers will like it.

Christmas + a little information about the next puzzles

Hello puzzle friends!

Just letting you know beforehand that this blog post is nothing related to puzzles. I have written off the cuff about Christmas. If you are only interested in puzzles, please read the bottom sentences.

It's Christmas everywhere! Needless to say, there are many Santa Clauses in every shopping centre. When I was small, I had believed that Santa Claus is set as only one person in the world. I was a bit of a twisted and skeptical child, so I didn't believe in the existence of Santa Claus, but children who dream about Santa Claus, if they see Santa Claus at every shopping centre, they would be bewildered.

"Can Santa Claus teleport?"

In some way, Santa Claus is a pioneer. He is the originator of the parcel delivery service. No one else had started a worldwide delivery service long ago; post offices, DHL, Federal Express, but Santa Claus did.

The thing that reminds me of Christmas is a church. When I was an elementary school pupil, I had been to the church every Sunday for a while. Yes, only for a while. At the church, I used to hear that we had to help poor people. One day, I noticed that if we help poor people with our full effort, we will be very poor but no one at the church looked that poor. Then, skeptical kid, I thought they said presentable things to me. Since then, I haven't been to the church.

Having said that, the familiar habits were difficult to ignore. When a Christmas song is played, my heart gets excited. It's the same as Pavlov's dog.
In my house, we usually do not decorate with any Christmas ornaments, but I suddenly felt like decorating something. What I thought of was using a Felt doll that always sits on my bookshelf and a little tree made by long wooden dowels.

The tree looks just like a Christmas tree as it is already. It would be more like a Christmas tree if I decorate it with not koalas but ornaments. 

This felt doll is an Einstein doll that I made. A piece of paper with an equation that the doll is holding is for being recognized as Einstein. I thought without this piece of paper, nobody can guess who this doll is. Coincidentally, Mr Einstein is wearing red clothes. So, I made a stocking cap for him.

Santa Claus is done! My Christmas is ready!
