Real Life Call of Duty Inspired Mini Mystery Box With Sounds 4

It’s no secret. Three of my favorite things are zombies, video games, and using my hands to make new and unusual things.  With just a plain wooden box and a spark of creative fuel (ok and some caffeine) I managed to find a way to combine all three.

I wanted to create a real life Call of Duty inspired mystery box for my son. With space at a premium and the thought of a large heavy wooden box to contend with as my main limiting factors I decided to start small.  What was born was this very cool mini mystery box that you can own too!

Each of these handmade zombie gifts starts life as a box constructed of bright new wood.  I then distress and age the wood and the shiny metal hardware so it looks used and abused like the box seen in the video game. I painstakingly paint and decorate it to closely resemble the Mystery Box seen in the Call of Duty World at War, Black Ops and Black Ops 2 video games.

Of course this box isn’t a life sized version. The outside dimensions of this real life “mini” mystery box measure approximately 14″ wide x 4″ tall and 4.5″ deep.

This zombie mystery box sports fake “rusty metal hinges” on top, rope handles on both sides and stenciled markings and details as seen on the box in the actual video game. This real life box also features real metal hinges on the back and a metal clasp closure to keep it closed in the front. Once the box has been completed and painting is complete, everything is sealed with a couple coats of matte clear sealer to protect the box from dirt and moisture.

Three versions of the box are  currently available.

Silent Version Without Sounds:

Real Life Call of Duty Inspired Mini Mystery Box With Sounds 2

This silent version is more economical while offering a little more storage height inside the box as well due to the fact there is no sound module hidden inside the box lid. In fact, you can actually store two wireless Xbox 360 controllers side by side inside this version! The back of the box does depress the left and right trigger buttons on the controller, but otherwise they fit safely and securely inside. What a fun and unique way to store and protect your Xbox 360 controllers!

Mystery Box With Sounds:  

This more expensive version of the mystery box that takes things a step further. The sound version actually plays the mystery box music or jingle as heard in the game whenever the box is opened!  Open the lid and the mystery box music plays. There’s a pause and then you hear that dreaded teddy bear laugh.

To see the Mystery Box with sounds in action, check out the video below:

The sound module is powered by a replaceable  9 volt battery or 3 AA or AAA batteries. These can be accessed behind the false panel in the lid that conceals the sound module, batteries and wires.

Mystery Box With Premium Sounds

This Deluxe version of our mini Mystery Box features the premium sound module previously only available in our larger boxes. This sound module plays two different versions of the box jingle. It plays the normal jingle two times. Every third play or open features the Teddy Bear laughter sound heard in game when the box disappears and relocates.

You can hear the premium sound module in action in one of our larger boxes here:

  1. Hi! I am interested in buying a mystery box with sounds. Are you guys still selling this product and if I buy one, will it arrive before Christmas? Thanks! The boxes look awesome!

    • Paul,
      We’ve responded to your email but I wanted to follow up here as well. We’re absolutely still making and selling these. Although we’ve got quite a backlog of Holiday orders, if you order within the next week getting it completed and shipped in time for Christmas should be no problem. (Assuming we’d be shipping to the United States of course.)
