In the beginning …

When Professor Puzzle stumbled on ancient puzzles in a far flung corner of the world he was hooked. Metal puzzles were sold by a man on the street in Calcutta and a deal was immediately struck to commence metal-bending, puzzle-making training.

Returning to London, the business started as ‘Ben’s Baffling Brainbenders’.  Puzzles were made one day and sold the next at the markets in Covent Garden and Camden. Every day crowds gathered around to try and solve the mystifying metal challenges.

Crowds kept growing and the little market stalls could no longer satisfy the eager punters. With the vision to spread a passion for puzzling far and wide, formal manufacturing began in London in 2002 and Professor Puzzle Ltd was born.

That was nearly 20 years ago now. Metal puzzles were created in our UK workshop for 10 years. Then we added wooden puzzles, manufactured in the Far East. That was the start of the modern operation that resembled the business we are today. We were soon able to claim to be the world’s leading puzzle supplier. We are now quickly fulfilling our mission to become the world’s leading games and puzzle company.
