Customer Testimonials


Here is what our Customers and Visitors are saying about Puzzles found on














Puzzle boxes are the perfect gift for that friend or family member who seems to have everything. They are unique and beautiful pieces of art that are sure to impress. That being said, not all puzzle boxes are created equally. If you want the best, you need to buy from Puzzle Box World.
Mike is an expert when it comes to puzzle boxes and he only buys his inventory from the most talented artists/crafters who use the highest quality materials. But don't worry. Even though you're getting the best, you're not paying for it. His prices are very competitive and in almost all cases lower than I could find elsewhere.
If there's one thing Mike is better at than finding great boxes, it's serving his customers. I have never received such fantastic service in my life. He educated me on all the different types of boxes and helped me pick out the perfect one. His responses to my many questions were informative, detailed, and fast.
What else can I say? Buy from Puzzle Box World! You won't be disappointed.

I can't say enough about the personal service and exquisite boxes I received from Mike and his family. When I placed my first order, I was shocked when I received an e-mail from Mike saying he would personally be taking my order to the post office the next day. I've shopped the internet for years and I've never felt like more than just a box on an assembly line until now. I received my order in record time and was able to track it all the way. The puzzle boxes were everything I expected and more. The colors were brilliant and beautiful and the craftsmanship evident when holding and opening the boxes. Kudos to you Mike, you've revived personal customer service and quality products. You're head and shoulders above the rest!!

Being a newcomer to the world of Japanese puzzle boxes, I found Mike's web site to be the most helpful.  The general descriptive information was great and I'm taking advantage of his long list of related links.  I was especially intrigued to learn the background information for some of the artists and am amazed at the time and talent required to produce each piece.  I have ordered 5 boxes from Mike within the last month, and I have been absolutely delighted with the quality and beauty of each one.  He has the largest variety of boxes that I have found (which makes it very difficult to choose), and his prices seem very competitive.  Mike have been very quick to respond to my questions and is eager to please.  No doubt I am one of many very satisfied customers, and I plan to check with Mike first on all future purchases.

Simply put, this is the best place I have found to do business with on the internet!  It is too bad he only sells boxes because I would do all my shopping with him!  He is definitely in this business because it is a passion of his and he loves what he does.  His knowledge and expertise are fascinating and his professionalism and personality, enjoyable.  I plan to do a lot more business in the future.  Thanx for the time you have taken above and beyond what could have been expected.

Mike at Puzzle Box World has the largest selection of Japanese puzzle boxes that I have found on the internet.  He is fair, communicates quickly and ships the puzzles in well packed boxes.  I have purchased 15+ puzzle boxes from him so far and have not once been displeased.  I am positive everyone will have as pleasant a shopping experience as I have, or, Mike will make it right!

Mike's got quite a varied selection:  everything from inexpensive "mame" gift  boxes to larger, high end art pieces.  He's knowledgeable of what he sells and his personal connections with the artisans  and other collectors are impressive.  I've always enjoyed doing business with him because of his courtesy, good prices, and prompt shipment.  He packs his boxes well, too!



I came across the Puzzle Box World website while exploring puzzles for gifts.  I'd never heard of Japanese puzzle boxes until then.  I quickly became intrigued by their workmanship and unique character.  Mike shared his enthusiasm and knowledge as I attempted to understand the Sun, finish, terms and crafters involved in this fascinating area.  His perseverance in securing unusual boxes, as well as the range of quality of boxes available on his website have made my collection efforts successful and a pleasure.  The clear and timely communication, along with his personal commitment, have kept transactions smooth.  I highly recommend both his website and guidance if you're considering puzzle box purchases.
