Objective
Disassemble and reassemble the 18 piece burr with 2 monkey shaped pieces trapped inside.

"One monkey arouses a great deal of amusement. Two more than double the interest and amusement"

This is one of the more whimsical puzzle designs that Alfons Eyckmans has created. The rather innocent looking 18 piece burr has a secret hiding inside... two mischievous monkeys, both are making your task (disassembling the burr) harder than it should be.

The initial challenge is to remove the monkeys, the second is trying to get them back into their cage!
