We all know the satisfaction of finally fitting that one last piece into a complex jigsaw puzzle with thousands of pieces, a puzzle that you have been working on for days and days, maybe even months. There is not much that can compare to that awesome feeling of accomplishment when you complete the puzzle after a good amount of time and effort. But…then what happens? You feel satisfied for a brief minute, probably not long enough to really justify the amount of time you put into originally building the puzzle. And then what do you do with the completed puzzle? You could glue it together, frame it, and hang it on the wall, you guess. But it will not really look as nice as your other wall art because of the lines from the puzzle pieces. So what is your other option? That’s right…breaking it apart and ultimately putting it back in the box you got it from.
If you have been thinking there has to be a better way to do puzzles, you are absolutely right. The future is here with 3D puzzles! These are puzzles that are just as complicated as jigsaw puzzles, so they will give you the same level of satisfaction when you complete them, but unlike jigsaw puzzles, you are left with something solid and tangible afterwards. And oftentimes, these solid, tangible things can actually serve a purpose in your everyday life (see the safe below), or, at the very least, be an admirable decoration (see many of the puzzles below!). So if you are over puzzles that you feel obligated to dismantle afterwards, read on to learn about the best 3D puzzles.
