This has *got* to be baked. Couldn't find on preliminary searches so...

I used to love those wood Japanese puzzle boxes as a kid. <link> The "secret" drawers are fairly tiny; coins, marbles, notes. Make version with Styrofoam lined center to retain cold, large enough to hold your lunch. Only you know the opening sequence...

       zuzu, make one and I'll buy it!   

       I had a wooden puzzle that contained a marble - the idea was that you had to manoevre the marble around inside the box until you got the marble out. I couldn't do the puzzle and so I took it into work (I work with children) and a 3 year-old managed to retrieve the marble in seconds. his method was to shake the box...

       kids are intuitive... heads not filled with complex adult intellectual mumbo jumbo, obfuscating the obvious.   

       I am 1/2 serious on this lunchbox idea, if I can't find one I might make it...one day...maybe.

       Zuzu makes this seem pretty much baked. But I will leave room for arguementation.. (AKA I'm too tired to say much).
blissmiss, Nov 05 2005
  

       No, haven't seen it. I just assumed it was baked because it is simple and a fairly obvious extension of the original. Plus when you consider the weird stuff they already market to kids...   

       [kam] exactly, confuse and conquer. :)

       Why not just have a salad sandwich? A) It's good for you and B) moronic bullies don't like salads, they like chocolate spread or peanut butter.

       froggie, that's a sweeping generalisation. bullies come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. some are very aware of their diet. hence the term bully beef...

       I have one of these which is about the size of 2 sandwiches, stacked. It can't be coincidence. Also good for watching the waistline - with 11 movements to get to it, you'd have to be really hungry to want to get to that bacon sandwich.

       Hai!

       Just make sure you don't have one of those Hellraiser puzzleboxes. In seeking lunch, you may accidentaly open a gateway to hell.

       lovely idea.

       Usually *after* in my case.

       "accidentally" ?
