Piczzle Puzzle Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

            It has been a long, hard winter for much of the country so far this season. While I may be "living the good life" here in Arkansas during the winter now, I am originally from Indiana, so I am no stranger to harsh winters. One of my favorite things to do as a kid while stuck indoors was jigsaw puzzles. So, if you happen to be one of those unfortunate enough to be stuck indoors AND enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, I have a great company to share with you!

            Piczzle Photo Puzzles takes YOUR photo and turns it into a jigsaw puzzle! How cool is that? They offer an array of sizes and 3 different shapes to choose from as well. You can also choose between getting the standard cardboard pieces or upgrade to a sturdier wooden one! As if the customization of using your own photo isn't enough, you may also include text on your piczzle picture puzzle to personalize it even more.
            With all of that being said, Piczzle puzzles make great gifts! Aside from birthday and Christmas gifts, these would make good "just because" presents any time of year as well. I'm sure everyone has encountered the dreaded gift shopping for the "person who has everything". Problem solved with a personalized Piczzle puzzle! I'm sure grandparents would especially love them!

            We received a medium sized 8x10, 30 piece Piczzle to review. I have fond memories of my grandma and I putting puzzles together when I was a kid. She passed away in March of last year and I've been missing her a lot lately, so I thought a picture of her and I together at my bridal shower would be the perfect choice for my puzzle. My mom and I did a few big jigsaw puzzles in the past and glued them together and framed them, so I was thinking of doing that with this one as well. Just another reason why Piczzles make great gifts!
            Overall I was pleased with my Piczzle puzzle. The pieces fit together nicely and everything lined up correctly. I thought the photo quality turned out really well, considering the picture was kind of dark to begin with. I did notice that the edge of some pieces had areas where it was kind of frayed, for lack of a better way to put it, but it's probably just from the cutting process and wasn't that noticeable. If/when I get another Piczzle in the future, I would love to turn one of my pictures from my hikes or the Smoky Mountains from our pre-baby vacations into a bigger sized puzzle.
            Don't forget to check Piczzle's website out HERE to see what all they offer for yourself. You can also find Piczzle Photo Puzzles on Facebook and Piczzle Photo Puzzles on YouTube.
            Before you run off, wouldn't you like to try to win your own Piczzle puzzle? One winner will receive a small puzzle of their own! Just enter the Giveaway Tools form below! There are only two simple mandatory entries, but the more entries you have, the more likely you are to win! Good luck!
*Please note that individuals cannot win a Piczzle from more than one blog.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  6. It might be fun to get a jigsaw puzzle of my family. I saw the picture you had and I thought it might be a good way to help our grandchildren hear stories of my dad & mom & my husband's parents. That way they would have a memory of someone they did not have the chance to meet.
