Traditional and Personalised Jigsaw Puzzles

The jigsaw puzzle can be a great hobby or it can make a perfect gift that can give hours of fun and activity.
It is traditionally a tiling puzzle that requires the assembly of oddly shaped pieces which, when completed, will create an image.
It is thought that jigsaws first began by painting a picture on to a flat piece of wood, which would then be cut into shapes with the use of a jigsaw, hence the name.  A London engraver, called John Spilsbury, is usually linked with the commercialisation of the jigsaw puzzle in the year 1760. Ever since then the jigsaw has moved on to cardboard, but many wooden jigsaws and other traditional jigsaw puzzles, especially those for children, remain very popular even today. Today's picture jigsaw puzzles can be based on a photo of your own choice.
The main purpose in most puzzles is to relax and gently work the brain; therefore jigsaws go hand in hand with any education or training. It is also recognised that all puzzles are great for helping youthful brains to develop and grow, but also that in later life they really do help to keep the brain active and working properly. Older people really should consider taking up solving jigsaw puzzles as a hobby simply because of the marvellous exercise that their brains can get from the enjoyable activity. Because the brain instinctively looks for patterns, and puzzles are a real true patterning activity, this then helps with the person's reading, writing, math and also logic problems.
Without doubt, when your child attempts a jigsaw puzzle they are effectively doing one of the best brain-building activities available that will in turn assist their educational development. When your next gifting occasion arrives, please don't forget about the humble little jigsaw as a really worthwhile gift. It is really suitable for those of all ages, but especially for kids and nowadays it is manufactured in many different shapes and forms keeping the jigsaw relevant in today's modern technology society. Recent jigsaws include online jigsaw puzzles, photo upload jigsaws, personalised jigsaw puzzles, spherical jigsaws and even 3D (three dimensional) jigsaws.
