Kagen Sound Maze Boxes
Now you can experience, first hand, the mechanical genius coveted by Oscar-winning directors, Fine Woodworking Magazine, and puzzle-collecting experts around the world.
Art of Play is proud to present this series of four handmade boxes from legendary puzzle artist Kagen Sound—the only American craftsperson recognized as a master by the Karakuri puzzle guild in Hakone, Japan. Kagen's epic puzzle furniture is rumored to sell for upwards of $50,000 but luckily, he has decided to create a limited edition of handheld puzzles for a fraction of that price.
Each Maze Box is exquisitely crafted by Kagen and features a rotating steel maze that locks the lid. The Walnut variety is the easiest to solve, Cherry is a bit more difficult, Maple is harder still and the Honeycomb box is very, very hard to open. Each box has a larger than average interior chamber since the locking mechanism is contained almost entirely in the intricate designs of the steel discs. These puzzles are available in limited quantities and we feel very lucky to have them in our collection.
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.
