OriginEdit

A tin box, or tin for short, is a metal container with a re-closeable lid. Despite its name, a tin box seldom involves more tin than a thin plated layer whose purpose is to inhibit corrosion.

Modern tin boxes have been used to hold items such as breath mints, throat lozenges, instant coffee, cocoa and even CD-ROMs for an internet service provider. In the past even more products were stored in tins, many highly decorated. Businesses tried to encourage the re-use of tins they provided, with the effect of the tins advertising them. One common use of the tin was as a children's lunchbox and in the UK as biscuit tins.

Highly decorated "holiday tins", usually containing cookies, candy, or popcorn, are sold during the holiday season and are popular gifts. Similar festive containers are used in Europe for sweets, biscuits, cakes and chocolates, mainly at Christmas, rather than in the summer holidays and in countries with British associations, they are usually called biscuit tins. In the year 2007 the German company dosenwelten started a new concept with digital printing on already shaped tin boxes. In these days it is possible to produce already printed tin boxes from one piece.

TodayEdit

Artie caught a ping of people being covered in real flamingo feathers, in Boulder, Colorado, and there were no flamingo's around. So Myka and Mr. Stall were sent to check it out. They traced the incident to an old folks home where people were using the tin box, though everyone believed that someone was setting the feathers in it first, or it was some magic trick. Now the tin box is in the Warehouse.
