We started our tradition in 2007 – when our oldest (Goofy) was 2 and old enough for a simple puzzle. We got this 6 piece puzzle with large pieces. Sorry I didn’t write down where it came from & it did not include a box that listed where it came from. However, I did find a 6 pieces puzzle at Jigsaw2Order for $15.95 & it included a puzzle tin. They also have various other sizes available.
UPDATE: We ordered our 2011 puzzle from Jigsaw2Order and it is my favorite to date!! The pieces are very well made & the image is AMAZINGLY sharp! I love the big sturdy pieces and the larger size option. The box is small (good for saving space) and has a sticker of the image on the box. This is our new go-to place!! (12/18/11)
Venus Puzzle and got a 30 pieces puzzle. The pieces were pretty small for toddlers, but great for 5 years old and older. I love the compact box it came in. Since we ordered last they have added a 12 piece puzzle with extra large pieces ideal for toddlers for $24.95. They have various other puzzle puzzle options available. Note: this company is in Europe so the shipping is a little higher if you are outside of the US; if you follow from Europe – this may be a GREAT option for you!
I have been very pleased with Portrait Puzzle quality, very durable pieces. They have nice boxes to store them in too. I like that not only are the pieces larger, but the overall puzzle is 16 x 10”. We have ordered from them the last 2 years trying out there 15 and 30 piece puzzles.
Other Companies that have great reputations & produce Personalized puzzles:
- Personal Creations has a 25 pieces puzzle for $29.99. The puzzle is 11 x 14” and comes with a gift tin (a nicer feature than the boxes)
- Shutterfly is always has a discount code and would be good for older kids as they only have 252 piece puzzles which run $24.99 without a coupon. However, I have to say I am not thoroughly impressed with them. Everyone else had the image silk screened on the box, shuttfly puts a sticker on top (there were there bubbles under the sticker)!
