The World’s Largest Jigsaw Puzzles

world's largest jigsaw puzzles

If you love your jigsaw puzzles, and you have the room, then bigger may well be better!  For some the challenge of doing one of the World’s largest jigsaw puzzles is enough to push them into a cold sweat.  But if you are not phased when it comes to large then read on.

Let’s face it jigsaw puzzles don’t need to be big to be challenging.  Some of the hardest jigsaw puzzles have less than 1000 pieces.

But there is just something about a monster jigsaw puzzle that is hard to resist.  For some of us there is nothing quite like the challenge of pitting ourselves against the worlds biggest jigsaw puzzles.

But the question is…

What do we mean by the World’s largest jigsaw puzzles?

It is interesting to note that over the last decade or so the title for the Worlds largest jigsaw puzzle has changed hands a lot.  A few years ago the undisputed monster jigsaw puzzle with the “World’s Largest” title was the Ravensburger Double Retrospect Keith Haring jigsaw puzzle.  This weighed in at a massive 32,256 pieces and was 5.4 m x 1.9 m.  You certainly needed a big room for this jigsaw puzzle.  However, since then the number of pieces has just gradually increased.  Taking this into account we feel that for us a monster jigsaw puzzle has to have over 20,000 pieces.  If it has more than 20,000 pieces we feel that it qualifies as being on the list of the World’s largest jigsaw puzzles.
