When Were Jigsaw Puzzles First Made

The jigsaw puzzle was made in 1767 as a children's educational toy. the invention began with a mapmaker named John Spilsbury, a man of many talents and trades. In the 1760s, Mr.Spilsbury established himself as a printer of children's educational books. However, in 1767, Mr.Spilsbury had a stroke of genius by taking one of his maps and cutting out the countries onto a piece of wood. He was able to then cut them out all the way and use them as puzzle pieces to a map missing its countries. At the time, this was a new and effective way to teach children map reading skills and to familiarize them with the world and all its countries. But his invention only continued to grow becoming a new fun and healthy hobby for adults, children, seniors every day!
