New Puzzle! Justin Hillgrove's Creature Ladder

Super-fun new puzzle out with a totem of monsters by Justin Hillgrove, with intricate cute-monster pieces designed by puzzle artist Maria Berg. Here's what Hillgrove has to say about this work:  The Creature Ladder is an acrylic painting on canvas that I did because I thought it would be fun to pile up some monsters really high. Some of the monsters don't like to be stacked, and others think it is a grand time. There are actually two other paintings in this series, extending the ladder quite a way up, and I often wonder who or what sits at the very top of the...

Monet's Summer (L'ete) Puzzle

In celebration of Bastille Day, I thought I'd tell you about one of our newer French puzzles,  Monet's Summer (L'ete) puzzle.

Venice in the 16th century

New! Small Puzzles now in Small Boxes

By popular request, our small puzzles will come in small cardboard boxes with bigger pictures of the puzzle image. (Mind you, it's way more fun to do the puzzle without looking at the image!) The small boxes have a magnetic closure, so they're easy to open, but stay fairly well closed. Some small puzzles have already been transitioned to boxes, including Hokusai Dragon, Degas Ballerinas, Monet Bridge... the other small puzzles are on our Bags-to-Boxes Sale to clear out the current inventory. Our bigger puzzles ($60 and up) will continue to come in wood boxes.
