Puzzle of the Day – Glow Zone T-Rex

This week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day invites you to step into the glow zone by assembling the T-Rex jigsaw puzzle. Your child can have fun both during daytime and by night with this 100 piece, 15 x 11 inches T-Rex jigsaw puzzle that glows in the dark.

You can take advantage of this opportunity and introduce him into the lost world of the giants that once ruled the earth – the dinosaurs. To increase your child’s interest you can quiz him on facts about the dinosaur that slowly takes shape in front of his eyes. The T-Rex or Tyrannosaurus Rex, rex meaning “king” in Latin, was a bipedal carnivore and according to some experts, a scavenger.

If you think that your child is too young for Jurassic Park, you might take it step by step and begin by introducing the characters before the actual action. And what character defines the lost world best? Its predator king, the T-Rex, of course. Tell your little ones all there is to know about this king of dinosaurs, and do not insist too much on the dangerous aspects of the encounter with such a beast. They might get scared and, with a big T-Rex that glows in the dark, that’s definitely not something that you want, especially during the night. Should you portray him as their protector though, they will feel a lot more assured and perhaps have the sweetest dreams of their lives.

Puzzle of the Day – Where’s Waldo, The Mighty Fruit Fight

Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day should be twice as challenging as the regular one. Not only will you struggle to assemble 300 large pieces into one comprehensive picture but after you do, you will also have to find Waldo.

If you don’t know anyone with that name, now’s the time to meet the one and only Waldo. With a red-and-white striped shirt, glasses and a hat, you can’t miss him. He has been seen all over the world, but some people know him as Wally and other as Charlie. Nevertheless, he is the same guy, and has been created by British illustrator Martin Handford, for children.

The “Where’s Waldo” children books are full of illustrations depicting dozens of people involved in various activities, in which readers are challenged to find Waldo, who is hidden among the other characters. It’s not easy as it looks, and many of the illustrations contain red and white striped objects meant to confuse you. Finding Waldo can be just as entertaining as assembling the puzzle and you don’t have to be a child to appreciate the beauty of the drawings.

This wonderful jigsaw puzzle was made by TDC games and designed by Hanford himself and is 26″ x 19.5″. All materials are 100% recycled and biodegradable and you will definitely enjoy the 300 high quality pieces.

3D Magna Puzzles

Some of the most interesting jigsaw puzzles made for children, the 3D Magna puzzles can offer you an unique experience. They are made for children because they are small, and there’s not that much challenge in assembling them as, let’s say, in a 1000 pieces puzzle. But they tend to compensate this lack of difficulty by some other qualities that make them more than just mere jigsaw puzzles.

The 3D Magna Puzzles available at Puzzle Warehouse have only 6 pieces, and measure only 7 inches. But these are some pretty special inches. The 3D Magna Puzzles are magnetic puzzles. That means two things. First, the metal tin which contains them also serves as a base to solve the puzzle on. Second, if you don’t like the tin, you can try them on your fridge.

The magnetic pieces are not irregularly shaped, like regular jigsaw puzzle pieces, they are square instead. But the best thing about them is the 3d part. The pictures are three dimensional, and they give the illusion of depth and movement. The technique used is called lenticular printing, and it helps create hologram-style images.

The clown fish puzzle can serve as a mini aquarium in your child’s room and the Spiral Rainbow 3D Magna puzzle can hypnotize your guests with the optical illusion it creates.

You can find a small collection of 3D Magna Puzzles at Puzzle Warehouse, all of them at some amazingly low prices. Make a child happy or simply decorate your fridge with a beautiful design made to last, and you won’t regret having chosen these nice magnetic puzzles.

Glow in the Dark Jigsaw Puzzles

That’s right, they really exist. And you can find a small collection at Puzzle Warehouse. Most of them have 100 pieces, but you can also amuse yourself with a couple of puzzles that have 500 pieces, and even with one that has 2000. For even more of a challenge, you can assemble them with the lights off!

These are not really for people who have trouble sleeping when there’s some light in their bedroom. If you fit in that category, do not hang glow in the dark jigsaw puzzles on your bedroom wall when you’re done with the assembling, but try another room instead. Like your kids’ room. Children like things that glow, and things that glow in the dark even better.

If they’re afraid someone might hide under their bed, a glowing shark or dinosaur might protect them without you having to turn the lights on all the time. That way, you’ll be saving some money on the electricity bill and won’t have to worry about your child’s anxiety levels all the time.

And even if your children are not afraid when the lights go out, they will be definitely delighted by the beautiful images that glow in the dark. You can either have Thomas the Tank Engine take them on a magic trip or some of the glowing dinosaurs make them discover the lost world. And if they like fish and the sea, they will certainly fall in love with the Undersea series.

You and your kids will have a great time assembling one of our glow in the dark jigsaw puzzles and then switching off the lights and watching your creation shine.

Puzzle of the Day – Toy Story 3 Woody

Pixar fans, time to get excited for today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day. Why? Well, we are proud to present you Toy Story 3 – not the movie, of course, but a 300 pieces poster puzzle picturing the only toy sheriff worthy of the name: Sheriff Woody Pride. There’s no “snake in his boot” this time, but you can make him “reach for the sky” by assembling this 19″ x 26.75″ poster puzzle.

Little puzzlers will enjoy learning about a few of life’s values having by their side this passionate, committed and altruistic character. If we go back in time a little, to Toy Story and Toy Story 2, we cannot deny that although Woody had been put through a lot (he coordinated a reconnaissance mission, had his arm broken and went through very hard times to save his friends), he still manages to keep that charming smile on his face, teaching us how important optimism and friendship really are.

While Buzz Lightyear was the “cool” character of the series, Woody was the smart one. He was the mastermind behind all the plans and all the other toys listened to him. For a toy role model, he is great and he embodies a set of character traits every child should aim for.

Not to mention that, with the likeness of a sheriff like Woody in the room, your child will be delighted. And If you want to make him even happier, you can also get Woody’s faithful companion, Buzz Lightyear to come to the rescue.
