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. Once you have assembled its 1000 pieces, you will obtain a 34″ x 22″ collage of license plates that will test not only your geography skills, but also your memory and spirit of observation.

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.

Puzzle of the Day – Endearing Cat

What is soft, has a moist nose and loves to purr? Here is a hint: it says, “meow.”

Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is a special and sweet one: a cute and sleepy kitten packed in a lovely red dotted box – Endearing Cat.

This furry domestic mammal isn’t valued just for its companionship, but also for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests. Did you know that a cat sleeps two thirds of its life (65%), spends 25% cleaning itself and it eats and plays 5% of its life? Or that they use to purr not only when they are happy and comfortable, but also when they are afraid of something or someone or when they are in pain? And here is a fact that we are sure you will find very amusing: cats purr at the same frequency as a Diesel engine.

If your child wants a cat, but you still think that it is too early for him to get one, you can pleasantly surprise him with this fluffy 100 large pieces puzzle by Ravensburger. Everybody loves a cute kitten and enjoys even the sight of it, so the puzzle is bound to bring lots of joy in your house. With a finished size of 14.25″ X 19.3″, it’s just the perfect jigsaw puzzle to assemble and frame in your kids room. Or even in yours, if you’re the big cat lover we suspect and if you secretly like to purr.

Puzzle of the Day – Covered Bridge in Spring

The sun is shining over St. Louis, and the ice and snow has finally melted away. Because after winter there always comes spring, this week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day honors that wonderful season with the colorful 300 pieces jigsaw puzzle by SunsOut – Covered Bridge in Spring.

We believe that winter has its glow around holidays when you can go skiing or snowboarding and around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. After that, though, it starts to get old and may even start making you feel a bit melancholy: everything seems frozen.

We bet you can’t wait to see those trees blossom again and the green grass to cover the ground. And let us not forget about those sweet songs that birds will sing early in the morning or about those shy sunny rays. Oh! And the wonderful trips in the mountains or perhaps to the beach.

We all love spring because it is such a balanced season – not too hot, but also not too cold, not too dry but also not too rainy. One of its best parts is that you can leave your iPod home. Why? Well, it would be a shame not to enjoy the birds trill or the bees tingle.

If winter persists outside your house and our words have cruelly made you pine for sunshine, perhaps this spring themed jigsaw puzzle of the day can act as a surrogate until those warm spring days knock at your door, too.

Puzzle of the Day – Always Coca-Cola

This week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day speaks an universal language which has different flavors but an unmistakable color. Here is a hint: it was created in Atlanta, GA in 1886 by Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist. If your mouth whispered the slogan “Always Coca-Cola” you’re the winner.

“Delicious! Refreshing! Invigorating! Exhilarating!” “It had to be good to get where it is!” “The best friend thirst ever had?” “Whoever you are, whatever you do, wherever you may be, when you think of refreshment, think of ice cold Coca-Cola.” It is your “passport to refreshment.” If you hadn’t had the chance to hear these coca-cola slogans, ask your parents, or even better, ask your grandparents. I’m sure they will tell you more than a brief history of Coca-Cola.

Why I seem so confident about that? Well, it’s because the world’s famous brand always surprised and celebrated its customers. For example, there was a Centennial Special Edition in 1986 to celebrate Coca-Cola’s 100 years or a Coca-Cola 1987 Christmas Special (the cans had paintings of Santa Claus made by artist Haddon Sundblom) and they even thought about the musical part: easy to remember jingles. And because the Coca-Cola Company thought about everything, they even invented Coca-Cola Diet and Coca-Cola Zero…so you don’t have to choose between a bottle of coke and a diet.

But enough with the talking, because there is a wonderfully colorful 1000 pieces Coca-Cola puzzle that you might want to assemble at PuzzleWarehouse.

Enjoy!

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.

Puzzle of the Day- American Sports History

This week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is a gold mine of knowledge; not only related to sports, but also to American history. Assemble its 1000 pieces and in the process you will be able to learn lots of things about the greatest athletes of this great country.

From boxing to football, tennis, baseball or motorsports, without forgetting bowling, everything is there. Everything and everyone is pictured, as not only will you see some great athletes, but you will also learn about sports museums and halls of fame across the country.

There are people you know, like the greatest boxing heavyweight of the world, Muhammad Ali, and people you should at least know about, from non-mainstream sports. They have all contributed to the rise of this great country and some of their performances even changed the course of history.

Made by White Mountain, this 24 x 30 x 0.2 inches jigsaw puzzles, weighing 1.6 pounds is a must have for every true American sports fan out there. You should all have it, assemble it, frame it, and hang it on a special place on the wall. That won’t earn you a spot in one of the halls of fame featured on the image, but it will sure make you proud to be a part of such a great country with such great athletic achievements.
