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.
