Akaki's Picnic Baskets are a series of small but tricky packing puzzles. The objective is to pack the pieces into the basket so that nothing sticks out the top.
Inserting the first few pieces is easy, but when you get to the last piece, you will inevitably find that the handle gets in your way. You might need to take a good look at the pieces, and think outside the box...
Each picnic puzzle includes a different movement or technique in order to solve it. The same basket can be used for all puzzles.
According to Akaki, "The easiest design is Cake Basket. It takes 11 moves and two rotations to solve. The hardest is Wine Basket, which takes 18 moves and many rotations. My own favorites are Egg and Hamburger Basket"
These puzzles are 3D printed in biodegradable PLA plastic. The basket is printed in wooden PLA. The colors might vary slightly, depending on what filaments are available.

I thought this puzzle wouldn't take very long to figure out, and that it might not be one I'd want to pick up again many times. That combined with the price discouraged me. But after buying it, I'm pretty happy with it. The design and concept is great. I like how precisely the pieces fit in the basket. The movements involved in the solution are aesthetically pleasing.
