3D Puzzles – It’s A Bigger Challenge Than Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles are fun, interesting, relaxing, and adventuresome as we assemble the pieces to create a whole picture. Puzzles are available for children and adults. Puzzles are used for hobby interests or professional careers.

Jigsaw puzzles are fun, interesting, relaxing, and adventuresome as we assemble the pieces to create a whole picture. Some people will look at the picture on the box cover, assemble the edge pieces, and then pursue filling in the remaining picture.

Other people like to match the pieces and create groups or sections and assemble edges and interior sections as they advance through the puzzle pieces.

The 3D puzzle pieces are built upward and outward creating a finished dimensional product rather than a flat creation. There are 100 to 3000 puzzle pieces; the greater the number, the greater the difficulty.

This concept was invented by Canadian, Paul Gallant in 1931. It was an overnight worldwide success and it continues to be popular with people who enjoy assembling puzzles which require more challenges than the standard jigsaw puzzle.

Multidimensional design

The 3D puzzle is a miniature replica of an object and it is available in three different variations. The pieces are interlocking or may require being glued in place during the assembling process. These puzzles have depth, height, and width.

The 3D puzzles are available as famous buildings, a variety of houses, city skyscrapers, towers, palaces, statues, ancient ruins, religious temples and churches, bridges, educational toys, animals, flowers, circus and carnival rides, ships, planes, trains, and other real items.

These puzzles may be do-it-yourself creations or purchased singly, or as kits. These replicas may be made with cardboard, poster board, wood, plastics, and metal.

The puzzle pieces differ from the traditional flat puzzle as they are thicker, stronger, and have sharper shaped pieces.
