Jigsaws are fun for the whole family

Jigsaw Puzzles are great for multiple people to play because no one can lose! The objective is for everyone to search for the proper puzzle pieces and put them together to form the main image of the puzzle.
To make it challenging for everyone in the family, find a puzzle which has 500 or even 1000 pieces in it. There are also 3D puzzles, which when put together form a 3-dimensional object.  There are also shaped puzzles, lenticular puzzles and augmented reality puzzles.  The choice is endless!
If there are kids in the family, they will have great excitement as they watch the image come to life.  Check out our website here.

Now, this is the perfect job for a puzzle enthusiast!!

If you're the kind of person who's working on a puzzle at all times (not just on rainy days when you're stuck at home), the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York is looking to hire a full time  "Puzzle Cataloger" for six months. 
The museum has a collection of 7,500 puzzles from as late as the 1700s — and some of them have missing pieces. The person who gets hired wouldn't complete every puzzle, but rather would do as much of the puzzle as possible to identify the historic image in order to catalog it properly.
Such Fun!  Read more about it here.
