About ZonnenBoxen

Fabricated totally of acrylic and completely no-tech, ZonnenBoxen are simple and durable.  While they are very cool with a flashlight, they glow best in ambient lights. They can be used indoors and out, in sand, in mud, in water, and they are amazing in snow. Completely washable in soap and water, use makes them glow all the more. Place them on a flat mirror or other highly reflective surface for awesome 3-dimensional effects.

ZonnenBoxen come in three size groups;

SMALL:     2" x 11/8" x 1" 

MEDIUM:   21/2" x 1" x 1", 11/2" x 11/2" x 11/4", & 21/2" x 1" x 3/4'

LARGE:      2" x 2" x 3/4"

They are available in eight different colors: Sky, Cobalt, Sea-Green, Lavender, Purple, Red. Chrome Yellow, Orange, and also Translucent.  As they are artisanally fabricated, there may be slight imperfections from block to block; these imperfections tend to enhance the glow.

We will create custom orders---colors, sizes, numbers of blocks, etc---please contact us using the contact form on this site.

Yes, we do accept returns if you are not completely satisfied. See our Returns policy on the lower right of this page.  ElkingtonDesignWorks makes no medical nor scientific claims for the properties of ZonnenBoxen.  We have seen how people react to and with them: they bring awe and give pleasure.  They seem to impart a kind of peacefulness in the way that stained glass windows do. That is good enough for us. Gosh, they are so beautiful!

 

 

 

ZonnenBoxen® ( translated from Dutch as "Sun Boxes") are blocks which were designed by Ann Elkington, CEO of ElkingtonDesignWorks Inc.  While ZonnenBoxen® were initially created for children on the autism spectrum,  their rich, glowing colors,  satiny-smooth texture and satisfying heft are deeply appealing; as it happens, everyone, young or old, seems to be captivated by them.  

Fabricated totally of acrylic and completely no-tech, ZonnenBoxen® are simple and durable. They come in block sets and now a checkers set called ZBKings.

ZonnenBoxen® blocks come in three size groups.  Measurements are in inches.
