The Daddy Wine Puzzle

This fiendish wooden contraption is guaranteed to amuse and infuriate  as its seemingly impenetrable embrace can only be released via a decent dollop of lateral thinking; there’s much more to it than simply untangling a mess of balls, blocks and cord. Recipients won’t know whether to thank you, throttle you or beg for the solution.

The Daddy will fit any bottle with a 3.3cm neck, so once solved it can be used again and again to imprison other unsuspecting bottles.
