Magnet Puzzle of the World

Magnet Puzzle of the World

When creating this unique set of jigsaw puzzles we decided to go back to the original concept of jigsaws. Jigsaw puzzles were invented in England in 1761 by John Spilsberry, who was a map supplier in London. He came up with the idea of a new educational tool – a puzzle in the form of a map cut into pieces. The idea was that students would improve their knowledge of geography by arranging the pieces to reconstruct the map. The puzzle has evolved with the passing of time so that nowadays it is a popular and fun pastime. However, we have decided to recreate the original ones and to offer our customers a series of jigsaws based on maps from all over the world. This map puzzle is cut by the oceans’, continents’ and big islands’ borders. All puzzle pieces are magnets which can be placed on a fridge. The edition also features a political map of the world, on which all countries are indicated. It can be placed on a fridge with magnet elements pining it down. Thus, when lifting any continent, you will able to see all the countries which are situated on it. It is also possible to use the map in any other way — hang it on a wall or put it on a table.
