Jigsaw Puzzle: Apes and Aliens

$ 24.00

Currently in production. Estimated to begin shipping in August 2020.

Apes and a few aliens waiting in line to get through airport security. If that's not a great idea for a puzzle, we don't know what is.

1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. Once you put the Apes and Aliens puzzle together, it will measure 19.75" x 29" (50 cm x 70 cm). Designed by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in April 2020.

CAUTION: Choking hazard from small parts. Not suitable for small children or adults who lack common sense.

 

Why a jigsaw puzzle? Puzzles are great because you can do them alone or with others. You get to set the pace. You can do the whole puzzle in one marathon session or drag the effort out over weeks. Solving a puzzle sharpens your cognitive skills and helps you learn to focus on details. Snapping a puzzle piece into position feels good and probably releases a flood of endorphins. How nice. And jigsaw puzzles don’t require any batteries, instruction manuals, or wifi.

What makes a puzzle great? We believe the best jigsaw puzzles have three vital qualities. First, lots of color. Next, oodles of details. No boring expanses of sky or snow. Last, a good puzzle is puzzling—a little mysterious and full of false clues, duplicates, and distractions. The APES AND ALIENS puzzle is designed to give you abundant colors, beguiling details, and mild mystery.

How difficult is this puzzle? Challenging, but not so exasperating that you will have to be institutionalized. We included an overview of the whole image on the box lid and box base, so you and a friend can both refer to it while working on the puzzle. If you believe the puzzle is too easy, try solving it without referring to the image on the box. If it is still too easy, do it blindfolded.

Where are these puzzles made? These puzzles will be made at Sarah's XZY puzzle workshop in China. (We know that sounds like a made-up name, but it’s real.) Printed on specially made, heavy puzzle board to prevent delaminating and reduce paper dust. Housed in a sturdy clear poly bag and nestled in a robust two-piece box with an image of the finished puzzle on both the lid and base.
