The founder of Atlas Obscura calls this his favorite packing puzzle of all time. Vesa Timonen has once again created an object of equal fascination and consternation. Lox in a Box might look like an antique children's toy but no matter how you spin, twist, or shuffle the wooden dowels, there simply doesn't seem to be enough room in the box to fit all eight pieces. But, we promise, when you discover the unique configuration that allows all the rods to nest inside, you're gonna laugh! The best puzzles are the ones that deliver a juicy "Aha!" that makes it feel, for just a moment, like nothing is impossible.

Lox in Box is a must-have for any puzzle fan and a wonderful gift for anyone that needs to be reminded of the power of creative thinking.

Shipping & Returns

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.

Return Policy

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.
