I made myself a little handheld dexterity puzzle based on the new BBC adaptation of Sherlock.

I usually build my playable shadow boxes inside wood boxes, but this one's inside a plastic petri dish.

Object of the game: Get Mycroft (purple) in the outer ring at the Houses of Parliament (Westminster station), and Lestrade (green) in the second ring at New Scotland Yard (St. James's Park station). No points for guessing which section Sherlock (black) and John (brown) ought to wind up in.

The "walls" include a sort of cobbled-together London streetscene...

...medical/chemistry equipment...

...police tape and an excerpt from a violin score (I've forgotten by who...Corelli perhaps?).

The underside.

The whole thing's about 3 1/2" across.

No fair cheating by taking off the lid. Who do you think you are, some sort of criminal mastermind?

This is brilliant.  The detail of the street-scene in the first ring is so neat. 
I wish I was dexterous enough to work these sort of puzzles, but I think I'd have to go the criminal mastermind route.
