Jigsaw Puzzle Brands

Well let's see.....first you have asked the right person! I'd be happy to give you my opinion.....I just hope I do not take up too much of your time because once I get going.....it's kinda hard to stop.

So I will name off a few biggies for now and then you can dig deeper for more information if you like. There are review LINKs for individual jigsaw puzzle brands following my commentary too.

Keep in mind these are my personal opinions. If you scroll quickly down the page you will see I have a lot of different jigsaw puzzle brands within my hobby. And this list is far from complete.

I will give you a brief explanation of the way I rated them. First I have broken the rating down into 4 Groups which I consider to be the main features of a Great to Low jigsaw puzzle brand. These are rated in no particular order of preference - they have been randomly chosen.
