Wrebbit’s Return and the Spirit of Puzzle Designer Paul-Émile Gallant

As part of our new inventory this year, we’re happy to now have Wrebbit 3D puzzles back in stock! For any serious 3D puzzle fan, Wrebbit has the best three dimensional puzzles out there. Need some data to back up this claim? Wrebbit offers:

Wrebbit is committed to continuing the spirit of ingenious puzzle designer Paul-Émile Gallant, who created the famous Puzz 3D line in the 1990s. Gallant became a renowned toy designer, making 3D puzzles of famous landmarks that incorporated flexible foam pieces that were “rigid enough to be portable and beautiful enough for display.” In 2008, Gallant was recognized for his contribution to the toy world and was included in the Canadian Toy Industry Hall of Fame.

Sadly, Gallant passed away in September 2011, but his revolutionary visions paved the way for the new beautiful puzzles of Big Ben, the Taj Mahal, and even Hobbiton!

Check out these lovely new additions, perfect for any 3D puzzlers’ dream displays.

New Christmas Room!

Last month, we celebrated our 1st anniversary being open to the public, and boy has it been a ride! A year later, we’re facing our second holiday season and are very excited to offer you – our valued customers – more than 12,000 puzzles and games to choose from in our store here in St. Louis and online at PuzzleWarehouse.com.
And Something New: we now have an entire Christmas room full of more than 300 holiday-themed jigsaw puzzles from 10 to 1500 pieces. Here are a few of our favorites.

1. The Twelve Days of Christmas

The Celtic Collection of puzzles contains original and vivid artwork created by Dublin born artist Rachel Arbuckle. This is a stunning interpretation of the classic Christmas song. Purrfect Puzzles are made in The Netherlands to the highest quality, using recycled materials, in a compact ‘Eco Box’. The well-fitting pieces are varied, glare-free, durable and thicker than usual pieces.

2. Christmas Puzzleballs

These 3D puzzles by Ravensburger are a hit every holiday season! Turn this Christmas into a life-long memory by building your very own Puzzleball ornaments! Each Puzzleball has 60 interlocking pieces that come together to form a holiday scene ornament that can be hung on the tree with included nylon string. We have several non-Christmas theme puzzle balls for year-round puzzling fun, too.

3. Puzzles to Remember – Poinsettia & Pine Cones

A holiday favorite, the poinsettia, comes to life as you put together this vivid jigsaw puzzle. The Puzzles to Remember series by Springbok is a fun way to enjoy puzzling while minimizing the time it takes to piece together. These puzzles are the same finished size as standard 500-piece puzzles, but contain only 12 or 36 large pieces, making it much easier to finish. There are more than 10 puzzles in this series.

4. Pintoo’s plastic puzzles

As the only carrier in the USA of these unique puzzles, Puzzle Warehouse is excited to bring you a collection of puzzles that feature long-lasting, interlocking plastic pieces. These puzzles do not require glue after assembled (they can be hung right up) and offer greater flexibility and presentability than traditional jigsaw puzzles. Pintoo offers more than 120 images in puzzles ranging from 40 to 1000 pieces, 3D, and Miniatures!

 

Sports Ball Jigsaw Puzzles

Whether you’re a fan of ball sports, of jigsaw puzzles, or both, the sports ball jigsaw puzzles at Puzzle Warehouse will be sure to delight you to no end. The Puzzleball sports series by Ravensburger is a series of ball-shaped puzzles designed to look like the balls from your favorite sports.

The 60 pieces puzzleballs, once assembled, form a unique decorative piece with the Ravensburger seal of quality. The pieces, carefully cut with handcrafted tools, fit easily together and there is no glue required to make them stick . Whether you would like a basketball, a baseball or a soccer ball, you can have it an amazingly low price.

If you don’t think that all jigsaw puzzles have to be flat, these round-shaped good looking balls are one of the best picks for you. But remember though, a puzzle soccer ball is not a soccer ball, so if you kick it and try to score a goal, you might not like the result. The same goes for the basketball. It won’t make you a good pick for the NBA, but if you’re a fan, you’ll definitely enjoy assembling it and admire the result for the rest of your life.

You can even bring it to a game and have your favorite player sign the puzzleball for you. That way, you’ll have an autograph on an item that you created and assembled yourself. If you like the idea, check out the great prices at the Puzzle Warehouse and start your own collection of sports ball jigsaw puzzles.
