OBLO is a 3D puzzle made of differently sized, shaped and colored spherical elements that need to be twisted against the central axis in order to disassemble and fully reassemble the toy. It consists of an outer round layer (the container), a lid and 10 removable pieces. OBLO is colored with three primary colors and one secondary color to appeal to its audience, children between the ages of two and five. Color is also used to emphasize the different layers lodged inside the toy.

In order to successfully progress from one level to the next, the child needs to find the correct orientation for each piece that will enable their smooth passage through the fixed opening in the outer layer. Using this method, the spherical elements work as part of a bigger unity. The link that connects all the pieces is their shape, which matches the opening in the outer layer.
