1000 Piece Schmidt Jigsaw Puzzles - Review and Giveaway

Jigsaw puzzles are so much fun and also addictive. When a new box of puzzle arrives and I sit down to open it, I can feel the excitement knowing that there are about to be several days of entertainment and fun (and a little frustration when I don't find pieces I need). I can work away on jigsaw puzzles for hours without getting bored. But jigsaw puzzles are not just fun. According to studies jigsaw puzzle help keep the mind active in turn leading to a better quality of life and reducing chances of developing certain types of illness including memory loss, dementia, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

Studies also show that completing a puzzle, or even just the successful placement of one piece, encourages the production of dopamine, a brain chemical that increases learning and memory. So you see, in addition to the fun and entertainment, there are many other benefits of doing a jigsaw.

A few weeks back I received some awesome jigsaws from Schmidt Puzzles.

My favourite of the three was this beautiful illustration by Colin Thompson. Featuring animals and birds of all kinds on Noah's Ark, this illustration is sure to keep everyone interested. This was a fun jigsaw to put together - as you start assembling it together you notice the intricate details and the thought that has gone into creating this piece. Very beautiful. I look forward to trying other jigsaws featuring Colin's amazing art.
