What Are Jigsaw Puzzles?

There are multiple types of jigsaw puzzles: 

Stock Jigsaw Puzzles

Traditional jigsaw puzzles, published by many puzzle companies around the world, use selected artwork and graphics as the puzzle image, and are manufactured in a mass production manner. You can buy these puzzles at big box stores, bookstores, online retailers among other sales channels.

So, you can pick a puzzle title (from the shelf) that you like and that’s pretty much the end of it. Still a lot of fun to assemble these types of puzzles.

Custom Jigsaw Puzzles

There are so many different terms for these types of puzzles, so let's call it Custom Puzzles since this term includes all kinds of personalized puzzles such as on-demand puzzles, photo puzzles, customizable puzzle among others. 

Custom Puzzles are not produced to shelf (for retailers) but produced on demand (make-to-order) mainly for end-consumers. This means once an order is placed, this puzzle will be produced to the unique specifications submitted to the manufacturer and will be shipped (in most cases) directly to your door. This concept allows the consumer to either design or select their own custom jigsaw puzzle images and create further content as well. So, you can pick your favorite picture and make your own puzzle. Pretty cool to be able to design your own personalized puzzles!

Do kids with autism use puzzles?

Puzzles are highly appealing to children with autism. They help children develop problem solving skills and provide visual stimulation. Oftentimes children with autism think in pictures rather than words, so puzzles offer them a creative outlet for grounding.

What are Japanese Puzzles?

A Japanese puzzle box is a box that in essence needs to be solved in order to open. It was to hide things or keep them safe. They sometimes include pet images. But our photo puzzle can be customized to make a more personalized puzzle of your beloved pet.

How do I clean my pet puzzle?

Use a damp cloth for cleaning - we do not recommend any chemicals or cleaners. 

Is there a recommended age range for your pet puzzles?

Our recommendations are as follows:

100 pieces: Children 6-7 years old

260 pieces: Children 8-9 years & adults

500 pieces: Children 10+ & adults (5+ hours are often required)

1000 pieces: Children 10+ & adults (10+ hours are often required)

The level of difficulty and time required may vary based on the uploaded photos. Rule of thumb is as more colorful the photos are, the easier the puzzle process seems to be.
