Updating or adding to the Largest Jigsaw Puzzles List: January 2018
Travel Around the World
This new puzzle is manufactured by a French company – Grafika and has been available since September of 2017. It is 48,000 pieces and priced at approximately $510 US dollars (395.99 British Pounds).
This latest jigsaw puzzle is called Travel Around the World that has countries on every continent. The completed puzzle will measure 26.77 x 6.30 feet (8.16 x 1.92 meters).
The puzzle is in a wooden box with wheels at 55 pounds (25kg) of puzzle pieces! There are 24 separate bags of 2000 pieces each. It also comes with 2 posters of the puzzle image, and a poster showing a map of the world with the locations of the individual puzzle images.
Grafika is a jigsaw puzzle company in France so if you visit the website be sure to check the browser bar to have the page change to English or your desired language. At this time it does not appear to be available in the USA but it's interesting to know that it's out there!
Have you seen the new Ravensburger Despicable Me, 9000 piece Minion jigsaw puzzle? How about, if/when it is available in the western world, would you try/buy it? Either way, this Ravensburger has just landed on the Largest Jigsaw Puzzle List according to this record being kept on the 6000 Pieces and More blogspot.
The 6000 Pieces and More blogspot records up to date (August 2017) listing the above Funny Minions as the most latest added to the other 194 jigsaw puzzles 'largest' list. By largest list, it is indicated that 6000 or more jigsaw puzzle piece qualifies as 'large'. That's likely a matter of opinion but I think a fairly good line to draw. (Note: when you visit the site be sure to check the English version tab if required.)
It appears this Blogger has been accumulating the list since 2014, but the list dates some entries as far back as 1980 being an FX Schmidt Ancient World Map as shared below.
Each entry also lists comprehensive details about the usual interests of a large jigsaw puzzle. Interestingly they have added the "exact" number of pieces rather than the general amount as often shown on the packaging.
The Largest List Jigsaw Puzzles is also broken down into the Number of Pieces, with links, images and extensive details for each one. So it starts with the Largest number of pieces, which at this time is the Ravensburger - Disney Unforgettable Moments with 40,320 exact pieces. (Shown below).
Next is the Wildlife, then Double Retrospect and so on. Note they are not in Year-date order but catalogued by the total number of pieces. There are truly some AMAZING jigsaw puzzles on the Largest List and certainly worth taking a look at this most wonderful resource.
I have 2 jigsaw puzzles that are on the Largest List. Both were bought for me as gifts from family members. The New York City Window, now sitting at number 5 on the list and Band of Thunder, sitting at number 24.
I hope you take the time to have a look at the extremely impressive 6000 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces and More Blog as it certainly is worth it. You may even be surprised a little bit!
