The Avatar comes packaged in a very small box, not much larger than the mouse itself. A high gloss photo of the Avatar, along with the DPI and button information is laid out on the front of the package. The two sides of the avatar show the Avatar logo with are also found on the back of the box in addition to the specifications in four different languages.

The front of the box actually opens up to get a real view of the mouse. The lid, which attaches to the box via Velcro circles, labels the different parks of the mouse, but I do think they have the forward and back button switched around. Inside of the lid contains the User Manual, which also has the driver CD attached to it.
