Jigsaw Puzzle Versus 3D Puzzle
Jigsaw puzzles are fun, interesting, relaxing, and adventuresome as we assemble the flat pieces of cardboard to create a whole picture. Some people will look at the picture on the box cover, assemble the edge pieces, then pursue filling in the remaining picture.
Other people like to match the pieces and create groups or sections and assemble edges and interior as they advance through the puzzle pieces.
The 3D puzzle allows the pieces to be built upward and outward creating a finished dimensional product rather than a flat creation.
This concept was invented by Canadian, Paul Gallant in 1931. It was an overnight worldwide success and it continues to be popular with people who enjoy assembling puzzles which require more challenges than the standard jigsaw puzzle.
The 3D puzzle has three different variations. The pieces are interlocking or may require being glued in place during the assembling process. These puzzles have depth, height, width, and duplicate in miniature a physical article.
An individual may be assembling a famous building, a variety of houses, city skyscrapers, towers, palaces, statues, ancient ruins, religious temples and churches, bridges, educational toys, animals, flowers, circus and carnival rides, ships, planes, trains, and other real items.
These puzzles may be do-it-yourself creations or purchased singly, or as kits. These replicas may be made with cardboard, poster board, wood, plastics, and metal.
The puzzle pieces differ from the traditional flat puzzle as they are thicker, stronger, and have sharper shaped pieces.
