If you like the Hanayama News puzzle, you’ll love this wooden puzzle box that requires a similar technique to open. Perfect for hiding your valuables in plain sight, the secret trick that opens the “spin” box is very difficult to discover (if you’ve never heard the name).
All of our DIY puzzle box kits come from the workshop of world-renowned Japanese puzzle makers. Here is your chance to examine the normally hidden mechanisms up close and experience the thrill of assembling your very own mechanical puzzle. All that’s required is a bit of glue and patience. Instructions are described in Japanese but well illustrated and easy to follow.
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
