All our puzzles are made by hand, on our farm in northern California. Each puzzle is cut out individually, sanded, and stained by hand; offering you a unique puzzle that can be enjoyed for years to come.
We use only the highest quality, furniture grade plywood that is domestically made from replenishable forests. Each puzzle is cut one at a time, then sanded and stained using a non-toxic, water-based stain.
Our water-based stains penetrate the wood with color and will not chip. Puzzles are then sealed with a clear, non-toxic finish so that they are BABY SAFE and may be cleaned using a damp cloth.
"The puzzles are large, sturdy, and brightly colored. They beat anything you can find in a regular toy store by a long shot. Even the smaller countries are well-suited for little hands. Best of all, we don’t need to worry about losing the occasional piece – the honorable Puzzle Man will replace it free of charge. These puzzles are a rare and special find. They would make great gifts, and I think we will be calling upon the Puzzle Man again as Christmas time approaches. "
"The puzzles that you sent us arrived yesterday, and my wife and I opened the package after our young son went to bed (they will be gifts, that's why). I am amazed at the absolutely outstanding quality of these puzzles! To be honest, the pictures on your website do not do them justice. We could not be happier with this purchase and look forward to ordering more puzzles from you soon, both for our son and for gifts for others."
"As an educator, I appreciate toys that teach. When my 3 year old son received his AlphaBoard puzzle, he didn’t know any of his letters. After 3 days of playing with this puzzle (over and over again), he knew ALL of his letters and his fine motor skills had improved due to the shape of the pieces. In a nutshell-- THESE PUZZLES ROCK!"
