If you have read the blog and large jigsaw pieces is not your bag, then take a look at the video below of the range of World’s Smallest Jigsaw Puzzles (I am not sure if that is factually correct). They are 234 pieces and measure 6 x 4 inches. You too could be the “Puzzle Champion of the World”!

Happy Jigging!

Shaped Jigsaw Puzzles

There is an interesting article this week at http://guardianlv.com/2013/12/puzzles-may-offer-a-clue-to-understanding-autism/ that suggests puzzles may help us to understand autism a little better.  It’s well worth a read. Today we are featuring some of our favourite “Shaped” puzzles. Jigsaws don’t have to be square or rectangular and you will see from the puzzles below that there is an enormous range of intriguing shapes to choose from.  As usual we have given links to the pages where they can be purchased on Amazon.
