Sturdy Puzzles That Hold Up Year After Year

I hate to sound like a puzzle snob, but I only buy three brands of puzzles for my kids — eeBoo, Mudpuppy, and Ravensburger.

Now, hear me out. I totally have my reasons! These companies have figured out true puzzle enjoyment and longevity. Our family loves them!

Here’s why:

  • The pictures and themes are awesome
  • The pieces are sturdy, like STURDY
  • Each brand offers a piece count for young kids to adults
  • The pieces actually click together and stay put
  • They go on sale sometimes
  • They last for years, no peeling or bending

Take a peek at some these great options, I’m sure you’ll find one worth giving a try. And then, you’ll see exactly why these puzzles are worth the investment!
