William Steedly wrote about it:

“Once again Volker Latussek has managed to create an interesting puzzle with relatively simple pieces. Unlike regular burrs, Stuffing Burr comes disassembled without any hint of a final shape nor any indication of whether notches come together or are filled with other parts, and therein lies the challenge. Finding even one of the two solutions took a while, and I’m still searching for the second. Stuffing Burr is a great two-for-one value!”

Kevin Sadler wrote about it:

“It would seem that no release from Pelikan is complete without something from Dr Latussek and you will not be disappointed this time. We are all delighted when the good doctor creates yet another of his impossibly difficult packing puzzles (I have still not solved Fermat or Euklid for Nick) but here we have something completely different. It is called a burr but is it really? This nice chunky puzzle is made from absolutely gorgeous Purpleheart and consists of 2 pairs of identical L-shaped pieces which have notches cut into them. The aim is to assemble a shape that allows all the notches to be filled. Only four pieces in the burr and only 8 notches…it must be easy? Not for me it wasn’t! Would you expect Volker to release an easy puzzle? This was one of the puzzles that arrived earlier this week and I had limited time to play. There is a shape that absolutely screams to be assembled from these pieces – I tried and tried to assemble it and got nowhere. Back to the drawing board and time to totally change my approach – think¬© differently which is not one of my strong points. It took me a couple of evenings of play before I had my Aha! moment. It really is quite elegant and, in the end, not as tough as I had imagined but really quite clever.”
