Based on designs from over 150 years ago, these limited edition puzzle boxes are handmade in the Hakone mountains of Japan. The exteriors of the boxes are decorated with intricate Japanese marquetry patterns traditionally known as Yosegi.
The hidden mechanisms inside the box are just as impressive. Each box requires a complex series of secret moves to open. We find that Japanese puzzle boxes are the perfect place to store valuable treasures or present a special gift.
Handmade for Art of Play. Available in limited quantities.
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.
