Two examples of World's Smallest Jigsaw Puzzles.

Both of these look very challenging!

There is no official list for the World's Smallest Jigsaw Puzzles but I do have a few in my own collection. I have had these mini M.C. Escher's since the early 1990's and they are still intact. However these are very difficult to locate these days.

Both are made of wood. They were assembled with the assistance of tweezers. Wood puzzles need to be set from the above-angle and dropped down into the puzzles unlike cardboard pieces that may slide into from the side. That makes wooden puzzles just slightly different to assemble and mini wooden jigsaw puzzles even more trickier.

World's smallest jigsaw puzzles take up very little space to assemble which is great for convenience sake, however they are not very popular among puzzler - the deterrent  must be the handling of the pieces size and/or the limited choice of images.

Take a look at the samples shown before for comparison in piece-size.

The following two I have in my collection to complete.......both are cut with the same size of pieces and the same dimensions in total puzzle image size by 2 different companies.

They are known as World's Smallest Jigsaw Puzzles but I do not consider them to be 'Mimi's' like the M.C. Escher's shared above.
