On any given day, chances are that you will find a half-assembled puzzle on the living room floor of our home. Building puzzles is an activity that can be done for as long or as short a time as you have available and it’s a calm activity that our whole family can enjoy together. I’ve been collecting puzzles for years, but I don’t really collect the kind of puzzles that would challenge you for days, I tend to collect puzzles with 200 pieces or less, and my favorites are the considerably less challenging frame tray puzzles you would find in any kindergarten class. I just love art on these simple little toys. Here are some of my favorites…
The devil-horned Batman on these is so great!
These large Whitman puzzles from the 60’s are the ones are my favorite super hero puzzles to collect.
You remember Space Patrol don’t you?
These goofy Flash Gordon puzzles always get me wondering about their backstory.
This is more along the lines of the Flash Gordon and Dale Arden characters who I remember.
This Buck Rogers puzzle is probably my favorite puzzle in the collection. The colors on this one are super vibrant even after 65 years.
Not too long ago, I wrote about my collection of 70’s puzzle cans. One of the great reasons to collect puzzles is that they are fairly inexpensive. Sure, some puzzles can be pricey, but for the most part, you can get them for less than $20, which is a price point that not many other areas of collectibles can claim.
The Blogging from A to Z Challenge continues and tomorrow truly has me stumped. What am I going to do with the letter Q? Help!
