    The Ten Best Jigsaw Puzzles for 2024

    Sometimes, a quick-fire board or card game just feels too, well, quick and fiery. Too risky, perhaps. Especially if you’re playing “We’re All Gonna Die” with your nearest and dearest.


    It’s at times like this when a quiet, contemplative jigsaw puzzle comes in to save the day and soothe your furrowed brow. You can spend a peaceful hour or two sorting through pieces and, if you’re lucky, putting them into place to solve the puzzle and reveal the amazing work of art that’s been hiding all along.

    Jigsaw puzzles have a lot of benefits

    Many jigsaws have a huge age range on their boxes - it’s not unusual to see these puzzles rated as suitable for ages 9 to 99! This is because anyone can complete a jigsaw puzzle and everyone can benefit from a few hours contemplating pieces, life and the universe.


    Doing a jigsaw puzzle can reduce your heart rate and lower your blood pressure if you’re a grown up and it can improve your hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills if you’re not quite so grown up.


    Whatever your age, jigsaws can also improve your concentration, your short-term memory and your problem-solving abilities, helping youngsters to gain skills and helping older people to stay young.


    Here at Ginger Fox we’re all about staying sharp and improving ourselves, so we’ve gathered together our top ten jigsaw puzzles for you to get to grips with.
