A Box Without Hinges

A box without hinges, key or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

What is it?

An egg.

(From J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit)

I believe egg is correct, however, your heart is also a correct answer.

In all honesty an egg is not a box it’s oval

A egg is not a box and yoke is not golden or treasure

It could be fruit too- the seeds are the precious treasure inside.

The book, The Hobbit, is where I read this riddle as a teen. Gollum demands Bilbo Baggins answer correctly or he will be his dinner. Now, what do you remember happens to Bilbo? Correct. He lives after answering correctly. I’m guessing the ones criticizing are millennials. Poor things.
