The Smallest of our Jigsaw Boards

This particular size of Jigboard is the smallest made by Jigthings. If you are not familiar with our range of puzzle boards then it might be a good idea to read about their usefulness over on our jigsaw boards overview page

Although the Jigboard 500 is small in size it is big in features. Its sturdy construction provides a solid surface for constructing jigsaws whilst the soft fabric covering means that it is always delightful to use. Every jigsaw you buy will thank you for ensuring that each piece is kept safe and secure within the raised perimeter of the board!

Jigsaws of 500 pieces and less are sometimes frowned upon by puzzle fanatics because they are considered to be too easy. Our answer to that is that not everyone wants to be mentally challenged every time a new jigsaw design is unleashed upon the world. Sometimes it is just nice to open a 500 piece puzzle secure in the knowledge that it will take a few hours to complete sooner than weeks. Take a look at the wonderful range of 500 piece puzzles from Gibsons including 'Teacup Cottage' and 'Village Lighthouse' in their ever-popular Thomas Kinkade range. If you like 500 piece puzzles, don't let the so-called experts put you off - jigsaws are there to be enjoyed in whatever manner you choose!

Another potential use for this small size of puzzle board is for enjoyment by youngsters in the family. Let's face it, gran and granddad are not likely to engage much with their grandchildren playing the latest games on their Playstations and X-Boxes but a jigsaw is another matter. A Jigboard with a jigsaw on it are a sure fire way to get all generations in a family happily engaged in the same activity.

For those of us who have reached the age when backache is something you learn to live with, it is worth considering a jigsaw board and jigsaw table combination. There are not many participatory hobbies that can be enjoyed leaning back in your favourite armchair but jigsawing is one of them.

If you are not sure whether to go for the Jigboard 500 or opt for a larger size then the table below might help with your deliberations - it shows the puzzle manufacturers who cater for this smaller size.
