A more interesting way of giving money as a gift!

Everyone loves money. Everyone loves puzzles. Thankfully Money Maze is one of those brilliantly annoying gizmos that combines both of the above, as recipients must solve it in order to access whatever pressie you put inside. Aargh!

Looking a bit like transparent Borg starships (or, if you're not a complete geek, see-through cubes), this infuriatingly addictive puzzle is guaranteed to send friends and relatives loopy with frustration.

As its name suggests the Money Maze is ideal for imprisoning money, but you can also use it to trap tickets, gift vouchers or any other paper-based pressie.

guide the steel ball around the maze

Well... you could get a hammer

We're not telling you how to solve this knuckle-gnawing brain-teaser (yes, of course we've cracked it) but it involves manoeuvering a little steel ball through a labyrinthine maze. And if you think that sounds easy, think again.

We've seen grown men reduced to tears trying to open this deceptively devious cube. And there was only a quid inside. Oh yes, did we mention you can also put coins in Money Maze? Actually, if it fits in the slot, you can put anything you like in there. As long as the recipient covets it, it's funny.

Flummoxed owners might be tempted to take the direct approach and smash their maze to smithereens with a heavy object. But then they'd be unable to use it again. And that would be a shame because as well as being a brilliant way to give money, vouchers, tickets, sweets, and more, both mazes are hideously compelling puzzles. The root of all evil?

I just got mine delivered yesterday. I spent all night trying to figure it out, only to find out it was faulty. I just rung customer services and they are sending me a new one. Top notch customer service firebox!

I had the same lock problem, that I've seen a few people here, had. I have an easy solution to the problem. You simply boil some water, dip the hatch with the little lock into the water for a few seconds. And then you can carefully bend the tip a few millimetres upwards. It worked for me! :).

I got one for my birthday and loved it. Was too tricky for me to solve though lol so had to ask for help. Finally got my money from inside. Liked this present so much I have just ordered one to be sent as present to Holland.

Bought it for my brother for Xmas, who predictably managed to solve it in minutes. The part that took the longest was actually opening it once it was solved - you need to slide the catch *very* slowly, letting the ball drop towards the opening. We thought it was faulty for at least 10 minutes... Not the best made item, but I didn't expect much for £8! Great wrapping paper though.

These are absolutely rubbish. Like the many other reviews posted here, they do not lock properly so they are no good. I bought two of these and both of them are the same so clearly this is just a badly designed product. Furthermore one of the boxes was cracked and damaged so overall a horrible disappointment for Xmas. Thanks Firebox... :(.

Would earrings (on a plastic square packaging)fit in this box? It would be funny to give them in this box instead of just wrapped up!

Firebox says: Hi Jackie, so long as the box the earrings are in is smaller than 2.25 x 2.25 x 3 inches it should be fine!
