The puzzle is to open the puzzle box. Great for hiding a small gift inside to add an extra level of frustration for the recipient. If they can’t do the puzzle, they can’t have the gift.
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. We also sell a slightly larger version named Mystery wooden puzzle box – crate style which has a bit more space inside, especially if you want to fit a standard Gift Card inside. This box is not big enough but the Mystery wooden puzzle box is.
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.
Size – 105mm x 65mm x 45mm (space inside the box is 84mm x 27mm x 15mm)
These puzzle boxes are a budget item imported from China. You can see from the photos there is a variation in how they are painted and the odd one has a chip on a corner or something like that. But they all work really well. We have opened each box and check it. Then reshrin-wrapped and put our own detailed solution inside. Perfect to hide a small gift. A great Stocking Stuffer!
