While traditional puzzles are normally made from cardboard, wooden puzzles are rising in popularity because of their long-lasting, three-dimensional beauty. There are hundreds of impressive designs waiting for your steady hand to patiently assemble them into miniature models of cars, trucks, clocks, and so much more.

Editor's Notes

June 11, 2020:

Jigsaw puzzles come in a wide range of difficulty levels for children and for adults. Many fall into the in-between area, as they are suitable for people of all ages. 3D puzzles have swept through the puzzle-making world, bringing a new element to what was once just a flat image. Adding three dimensions gives you a lifelike experience of your creation, only on a miniature scale.

Wooden 3D puzzles go one step further as far as quality and detail. The pieces are made from plywood sheets, and they can be punched out as you need them for assembly. While you do have to take extra care with the wooden parts because they can break, potentially ruining your creation, the exquisite detail and aesthetic appeal of the finished product makes up for the risk.

The Rokr Mechanical Kit is a fully-functioning, vintage film projector that includes a snippet of a classic Charlie Chaplin film. Projection works best at about 11 inches away from the wall or screen, and you can watch each part work together as it displays the film. The Rokr Treasure Box is an intricately-detailed box with a combination lock, turning keys, and a rising elevator box inside where you can store tiny objects, like your favorite rings and necklaces.

The Rolife Build Your Own Wolf is a budget-friendly option that is geared more towards children; however, adults enjoy the delightful design of the howling wolf just as much as the kids enjoy it. The Hands Craft DIY is another affordable selection that includes 6 different sea creatures to assemble and enjoy, and it is great for children of all ages.
