It is certainly a mystery how this puzzle box can be opened.
Great for hiding a small gift inside to add an extra level of frustration for the recipient. Or somewhere to hide small items you don’t want to risk laying around the house.
We sell a smaller version of this one too but with this larger one, you can just fit a standard gift card inside the box. It does need to go on a slight angle – see the photo I’ve included. And it might be a tight squeeze for the card it comes on so probably you’ll have to remove that. But a great way to give a gift card. For a more exact fit for a gift card, you might prefer the Gift Card Holder puzzle box which was specially designed for the purpose.
This puzzle has many different names and is also known as the Magic Crate, small Trick Opening Box, Wooden Puzzle Crate or the Magic Box but they are all the same solution and generally have this wooden crate type design.
The wooden puzzle crate was shown at the International Puzzle Party 16 in Luxembourg in 1996 under the name of Willies Wonder by Kobus de Beer from South Africa.
The Size – 120mm x 80mm x 30mm (space inside the box is: 92mm x 50mm x 12mm)
The puzzles are quite well made for the price and come in a plain white box. Every puzzle box has been opened and checked by us and repackaged with our own designed and easy to follow detailed solution.
