Tube It In is a classic design by Wil Strijbos. To solve it you have to take the various small rectangular pieces and pack them all inside each other. Wil originally made it with small cut sections of metal pipe! What an original and fun idea, still unique to this day. The puzzle itself is moderately tricky and fun to solve.

Mr. Puzzle made a very nice video review of the 2019 version ** Spoiler Warning - this link contains the puzzle's solution** found here
Just when I was ready to give up on packing puzzles, Tube It In came around and is SUPER fun. Great for sharing! And the thing is TINY. I am very impressed at how much fits in there.

A very beautiful puzzle, which gives a lot of satisfaction to solve. I think this is one of the fewest puzzles you enjoy a lot more to work on it rather then see it solved. At one point I just wanted to be wrong just to play a little bit more with the beautiful wooden pieces.
A must have in my opinion.
Chapeau to the guys at CD!
I'm a fan of Strijbos' original. This is as good. It also reminds me of Alan Boardman's tiny puzzles.
