Puzzles? Yes, we have those too!

Picture Puzzle Piece
One picture puzzle piece
Lyin' on the sidewalk,
One picture puzzle piece
Soakin' in the rain.
It might be a button of blue
On the coat of the woman
Who lived in a shoe.
It might be a magical bean,
Or a fold in the red
Velvet robe of a queen.
It might be the one little bite
Of the apple her stepmother
Gave to Snow White.
It might be the veil of a bride
Or a bottle with some evil genie inside.
It might be a small tuft of hair
On the big bouncy belly
Of Bobo the Bear.
It might be a bit of the cloak
Of the Witch of the West
As she melted to smoke.
It might be a shadowy trace
Of a tear that runs down an angel's face.
Nothing has more possibilities
Than one old wet picture puzzle piece.
-- by Shel Silverstein
Oh, puzzles!  So great for keeping your hands busy when talking, or an intriguing indoor activity to do on your own.  We have a lot -- and even that is an understatement.  Puzzles aren't just for yucky-outdoor-and-I'm-stuck-indoor-kind-of-days.  Check'em out, we have some for all ages.  Some science-y, some cutsy, some with a more serious edge.  Others are made for travel, some for the floor, famous artwork, Boston and Red Sox too, and others that are just down right silly.  We also sell puzzle glue, if you would like to move your jigsaw masterpiece to the wall.

Photo puzzles can be made from any type of picture. We can use a family photo, a special drawings or paintings that our children have created, or any other type of image that we would like to turn into a puzzle.
