World's Smallest Jigsaw Puzzles

World'sSometimes, size does matter and bigger is not always better. As a matter of fact, there are plenty of situations when smaller is better. This is the case with almost everything related to technology, a domain where size seems to be continually shrinking and miniaturization looks like a trend that will never stop. But this could also be the case with jigsaw puzzles. As everyone goes for the bigger fish and tries either to build or to assemble the world’s biggest puzzle, some companies took a different turn and ended with the world's smallest puzzles.

If you thought that the world's biggest puzzle was the real challenge, you should check out these miniature jigsaw puzzles. Some have a finished size of only 4" x 6" and 234 pieces. The number isn't that big, but it becomes almost insane once you see the size of the pieces. They're so small that you need a lot more than a pair of small and delicate hands to manipulate them. A pair of tweezers is provided by the manufacturer to help you with the assembling, and they sure come in handy for such a microscopic task. But they might not be enough, so you’d better start looking for a magnifying glass and go get your glasses.

If you don't think that 234 is an appropriate number for an individual your size and skill, you can try your luck with some of the bigger boys on the market, like the 1000 pieces miniature jigsaw puzzles from Master Pieces. These are a little bigger, but 11.7" x 16.5" is still incredibly small and hard to assemble with so many pieces.

You can find these world's smallest jigsaw puzzles and more at Puzzle Warehouse, the largest jigsaw puzzle store in the world. The prices are equivalent to the size of the puzzles, so don’t be surprised when you see such good deals.
