* Cats love boxes. They love hiding in them. It's the best way to catch a cat. Set out a box and leave. Come back in five minutes. The cat will be in the box. No muss, no fuss. They'll do the same with paper bags, if you can't find a box. Or laundry baskets, especially when there's laundry in them.

* In "Franklin's Big Box" from ''Literature/{{Franklin}} and Friends'', Franklin's Aunt T tries to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this by sending Franklin a large decorated box in the mail with nothing in it. At first, Franklin and his friends think maybe she just forgot to put in a gift and decide to go visit her place to ask her about it. Along the way, however, they have fun with the box, and by the time they've reached Aunt T's, Franklin's decided to thank her for just sending the empty box.
