The most known Combinescion puzzles are the Zodiac sign series of 12 puzzles. They are quite colorful and pictorial. Here are some less know variations of Combinescion puzzle that I had found a while ago.

Unfortunately I know very little of Combinescion puzzles. When and where were they produced? Well, I know it had been in Italy but none of the packaging has the year of production.

Apart from the 12 Zodiac Combinescion puzzles and the 3 additional ones shown by Aleksey, there are a couple of other similar puzzles of the "Mind buggler" series.
I do not have samples of these puzzles, but only some small pictures which are listed below.

I found one piece of information:
The combinescions are shown in Jerry Slocums book. That means they were produced before 1994.
Not that helpful but at least something.

In the leaflet accompanying the combinescion puzzles the following is mentioned:
“conforme alla legge n 46 del 18-2-83”
which translates as
“in accordance with the law nr 46 of 18-2-83”.
So, it appears that the combinescion puzzles were marketed after this date.
