EDITION: 48 Copies Released
SIZE: 3.7" x 3" x 2"

The "BonBon" packing puzzle by Frederic Boucher is just a ton of fun. The set of five tetrominos must be fully inserted in the rectangular box, and there is only one very specific way to do it. The solution requires well over a dozen correct moves, including rotations.

The box itself is very unusual, with cutouts in the top and sides. The acrylic top is held in place with a tricky set of shoulders resulting in a great fit which retains a solid exterior presentation.

BonBon is constructed with a butternut wood box. Butternut is usually a very soft wood, but we found an unusually dense billet with some nice figure and curl for this project. The pieces are made from Morado, a dense hardwood. The fit and finish are accustomed precision, with very little extra movement yet easy sliding pieces.

48 copies available for sale, each signed and dated. This puzzle is shipped disassembled.

Precision wood puzzles can be damaged by environmental changes. Please read the Caring for Wood Puzzles guide to ensure proper fit and operation.

Looks easy but it is not!

It seems there is a lot of extra space in this one, but it can be quite tricky! Certain rotations are impossible, others are pretty easy but a few are doable with considerable trickery. Just when you start to get the feeling it is impossible you may be close to solving it. Or not.
