December finds most children making lists of all the toys they want Santa to bring them but it finds me delighting in assembling puzzles that feature toys instead! My toy-themed tour starts with this 1000-piece Eurographics Ye Olde Toy Shoppe. This puzzle is urging us to go in by tempting us with an array of toys in the window, many of which were childhood favorites of mine including Pick-up Sticks, Etch a Sketch and Magnetic Wheel. CONTINUE READING

As puzzlers, we have a tendency to stick to niche image styles because we know what we like! During my last 12 months as a Puzzle Warehouse Ambassador, I’ve been sure to add puzzles to my wishlist that I wouldn’t normally puzzle, knowing they had a chance of being sent to me in my ambassador box. CONTINUE READING

I love trying brands that I have yet to try. When I visited Puzzle Warehouse, I picked up a 2 pack of Falcon de luxe Christmas puzzles called Santa’s Special Delivery. I am a big fan of Christmas puzzles. I always get at least one new one to do every year. It makes it even more special when it is a brand I haven’t tried before. CONTINUE READING

I was drawn to the beauty of the artwork on this puzzle ‘Prayers by the Lake’, part of the Indigenous Collection.  The scene is so colourful and calming. I was not prepared for how challenging it was to complete the swirls and waves. All worth it in the end and I can’t wait to begin more in this series! The puzzle box is sturdy with a full glossy image clearly displayed. CONTINUE READING

The very first puzzles I remember doing were Sesame Street tray puzzles from the 1970s. As I got older and transitioned from "baby" puzzles, I did many, many, many sea life puzzles. Bringing together the nostalgia from growing up, I decided to give Happy Dolphins by Wooden City a try. Wooden puzzles are a very different experience from cardboard. There is a wide price range depending on if you purchase laser cut (typically mass produced) or hand cut (intricately made by artisans who use a scroll saw to create the puzzle). CONTINUE READING

You know how an earworm will get in your head, and just make you go mad with the repeating melody or lyrics? Sometimes you don’t even realize it is happening until you find yourself in the middle of a task that is loosely related and it dawns on you. Well, for me it was a certain blonde lady who’s song, Bejeweled, was swiftly burrowed into my brain. CONTINUE READING

It's the gift-giving time of year, so I thought it would be fun to create a list of 10 great gift ideas for the puzzlers in your life...or for those times when you want to treat yourself. First up is something I use often while puzzling, The Puzzle Box Stand. The nice thing about this particular stand is that it also has a slot to hold the picture you're working from. CONTINUE READING

The rains have begun here in the PNW and usually, my tastes veer to the colorful, just to make up for the lack there of. This year has been particularly jarring because we had warm, sunny weather for well into October when suddenly, the carpet was pulled out from underneath us and the seasonal cold and wet set in. Fall had arrived. Apparently, my puzzling proclivities didn’t get the memo, because the other week, during our first major storm of the season, I found a colorless puzzle on my table. CONTINUE READING

Sometimes you just can’t go past a fairy tale. A classic story or character is heartwarming and so many of us have a favourite. For me, it’s Alice in Wonderland. I’ve loved that story since I was a child and I find I’m instantly attracted to puzzles where Alice or anything involving Wonderland is the main event. I thought I’d take a little journey of my own through the Puzzle Warehouse website to see what puzzles are available for the fairy tale loving puzzlers out there. CONTINUE READING
