Puzzle of the Day – Pets Picnic

Today’s puzzle of the day goes, once again, to the animal lovers. To be more precise, cute animal lovers are the only ones truly able to appreciate it. Made by Sunsout, Pets Picnic is a large piece jigsaw puzzle with a finished size of 18″ X 24″. Once you assemble its 300 pieces you will discover an amazingly fun and relaxing animal world that is at the same time incredibly human.

Of course, you might have already figured that out from the jigsaw puzzle’s title. The picnic is a human invention, while pets are not human. This is a position easy to criticize, as the difference between pets and animals can be seen to lie in their degree of human friendliness, or perhaps even humanity. But enough with the intellectual debates, and let us get back to the puzzle. It features man’s best friends, gathered together around everything you need for a picnic.

The picnic basket is guarded by one of the funniest looking dogs in the world, a West Highland White Terrier, surrounded by his friends. Two rabbits and a cat with another four furry little pets and a couple of other fellows complete the picture, waiting for you to be discovered.

This is the sort of picnic that you can’t enjoy alone, and we recommend you to try it only if you’re accompanied by your family. Only then will you be able to taste the pleasures that this very special picnic has to offer. Expect happiness and a very peaceful state of mind.

Puzzle of the Day – A Pile of Kittens

Let’s make this day cuteness day. How and why? Well, to be honest, this decision was inspired by our pick for the Puzzle of the Day section: A Pile of Kittens. You can’t possibly be immune to the amount of cuteness in the picture. These kittens come in all shapes, sizes and even moods.

There’s Curious Kitty, Sad Kitty, Lonely Kitty, Sleepy Kitty and Playful Kitty. And there are other members of the troop who need to be found and assembled as well. Made by Sunsout, this eco-friendly jigsaw puzzle is a 1000 pieces monument of cuteness, with a size of 26”x26”.

If you’re a fan of the furry domestic felines, you’ll find assembling the puzzle even more entertaining, as you can try to figure out what breeds of cats are featured in the picture. Can you spot a British Short Hair? How about a Siamese? Or a Maine Coon? A Scottish Fold, perhaps? How about that paw on the right? Could it belong to a Burmese cat?

There’s no way you won’t enjoy this beautiful puzzle, designed to bring a smile upon your face and joy and serenity in your heart. These cute and fluffy little creatures will simply make your day, even if you are not a cat lover. And when we say your day, we actually mean your week, or even your month. Do not forget, it is a 1000 pieces puzzle we’re talking about, and unless you’re a professional jigsaw puzzle assembler, it’s going to take a while until you put the paws where they belong.

Puzzle of the Day – Chat Noir

Today’s puzzle brings you back to 19th century France. More precisely, it brings you closer to the bohemian district of Paris, Montmartre, and to its famous cabaret, Le Chat Noir (French for “The Black Cat”). Opened by Rodolphe Salis, an artist, Le Chat Noir soon became famous as a place where you could stumble not only upon artists, but also upon some of the most famous men in France, if you believe the publicity of Salis himself.

Euro Graphics brings you this week’s puzzle of the day, a jigsaw puzzle representing a famous advertising for a tour of the cabaret artists to other cities. The original poster, safely displayed in a museum, is the work of Theophile Steinen, a Swiss-born painter and printmaker. The jigsaw puzzle is itself a work of art, featuring no less than 1000 pieces. With 19.25 x 26.5 inches, it is made from recycled board, printed on recycled paper with vegetable based ink.

You will definitely have to admire the superior quality of this beautiful jigsaw puzzle—at least as much as the image it depicts. It will not give you headaches, as it isn’t a difficult puzzle, but that does not mean you can’t enjoy it. The picture stands for something and it represents a rare work of art with a 19th century touch that will perfectly fit any of the walls in your house.

This is the kind of jigsaw puzzle that, once assembled, will never go back in the box, so you’d better buy some glue and a frame from the start.

Puzzle of the Day: License Plates USA

Do you like detective stories? How about detectives? Would you like to become one yourself, or perhaps just improve your detective skills? You could start small, with license plates. A knack for recognizing them could prove itself very useful. You might witness a hit and run someday or maybe just a drunk driver, and become a local hero by being able to identify the license plate of the perpetrator.

How about that? If you’re interested, Puzzle Warehouse can do a little something to help you. The largest jigsaw puzzle store in the world gives you today’s puzzle of the day: License Plates USA. Made by TDC Games, this jigsaw puzzle is the shape of the United States.

Don’t be afraid by the large number of pieces, as this jigsaw puzzle does not fall into the difficult category. The pieces are numbered on the back side, and you are provided with a map that shows the location of each piece, in case you run into any kind of trouble. With these in mind, you can purchase the jigsaw puzzle and get started. It will only be a matter of time until you will be able to identify a license plate just by looking at it for a couple of seconds.

Puzzle of the Day – Baffler-Nonagon

Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is no regular jigsaw puzzle. It is aptly called the Baffler-Nonagon, also known as the most unique puzzle ever. A tricky piece of artwork, each puzzle is randomly design and cut in the oddest ways possible. The result, as you might suspect, is at least unexpected. 67 unique shapes with no straight edges and no overlapping images are made to guarantee you tons of fun.

Made by Chris Yates for Ceaco, the Baffler-Nonagon is a small puzzle, ideal for a unique experience. While it might not prove as hard to assemble as you might think the first time you see it, it certainly requires a different approach than traditional jigsaw puzzles. Its unique shape and pieces require a great deal of creativity and will work your imagination and puzzle making skills in quite an intense way.

You can even use it in a contest with your friends, and see who can assemble it the fastest, or who can assemble it the fastest without looking at the reference picture on the box. The weird looking pieces are certainly confusing and, until you get used to them, won’t let you set any world records.

At Puzzle Warehouse you can find the Baffler-Nonagon at an amazing price, and if you don’t feel up to the challenge yourself, you can offer it as a gift. After all, it is one of the most unique puzzles in the world, and unique gifts never go unappreciated.
