Personalized Gifts with Piczzle Picture Puzzles [Review]

The Kids love puzzles. LOVE.

Seeing a three-years old reaction to having their picture on a puzzle really is hilarious. Think Thomas the Tank Engine.

But the puzzles aren’t only a kids toy…

Piczzle Photo Puzzles Make Wonderful Memories!

For our review, I chose a basic design, medium sized cardboard picture puzzle with 48 pieces. There were ten piece size options ranging from 6-3,000 pieces! A puzzle for all ages.

The puzzles are constructed of a premium grade cardboard that has been laminated with a glossy finish. Piczzle’s cardboard puzzles are precision press cut so that all pieces will be perfectly separated from one another. They are printed using an advanced digital printing technique that results in sharp, multicolored prints that achieve real-life Puzzle pictures.

As for the picture, I selected the same one from last years Christmas cards because I liked it. I didn’t give any consideration to whether or not it would make a good puzzle for three year olds. Fortunately, there was some variance in colouring (although there was a lot of grey and flesh colours) and didn’t prove too difficult for the kids. If you’re planning on getting a puzzle as a keepsake then this is not an issue.

The final design step was to select the text. While they clearly state that “…for optimal results; font, color, size and position of your personal puzzle text will be determined by our professional graphic designers”, I wish that I could have picked the font as I’m not big on italics. However, I was fine with the colour, size and position and it didn’t detract from the enjoyment of the puzzle at all.

The puzzle arrived standard delivery within six business days and was packaged in it’s own “personalized puzzle box”.

The picture I took shows that the not all the pieces lay completely flat on the top (they do on the bottom), however, my picture is exaggerated as you can hardly feel the raise with your hand. The thickness of each piece is measurable (1/16″), the cuts are clean and when compared to the original, the picture of the original on a cardboard puzzle is an excellent reproduction.

The Kids have tons of cardboard puzzles that are already peeling, warped or broken before they’re even out of the box. What a waste of money. While I understand that “the others” don’t cost $14.95, I think that these puzzles are worth their value not only for the quality but the fact that you can’t put a price on Grandma Joy’s face when she receives such a unique gift.

    I like the Gold Holiday design, although I wish there were non-holiday border options! I would choose the cardboard 48-pc one. Cool idea – my kid would love this!

    The basic design is my favorite. For a Christmas gift though, I like the Elegant Gold Holiday design. I think a custom puzzle is the cutest way to tell your kids you’re taking them to Disneyland. What a great idea! 🙂

    This is a great gift idea! It would be super fun if you did a picture of you and the recipient together, and not tell them which picture you used! That way, they would be surprised when they put it all together! Super cool
