The Wonderful World of the
Jigsaw puzzles have been around since the 1760 when European mapmakers pasted maps onto wood and cut them into small pieces. American children still learn Geography by playing with maps of the United States. Today the Jigsaw Puzzle industry is booming with a huge amount of adults who make puzzeling an everyday pastime.
Here's a fantastic "History of Jigsaw Puzzles" from Puzzle Warehouse if you would like to know more! This site offers a great monthly puzzle club if you are in the mind to start a new hobby!
Jigsaw Puzzles can be found in a large variety of sizes, piece count and themes by some amazing artists. Special puzzle boards and mats can be purchase for working and storing "in-progress" puzzles and many adults will frame a completed puzzle for display.
