Our team has worked countless puzzles. So Trove puzzles are infused with all the qualities we know contribute to the most extraordinary puzzle experience. This culmination includes lovingly laser cutting each piece from real wood, designing just the right amount of difficulty to keep the process from being mindless, creating the size and piece count to make the effort mindful, and including whimsical Treasure Pieces in fascinating shapes. Puzzle artisans of the Victorian era crafted puzzles from wood and hand cut them with a jigsaw, making each a true labor of love. Just like Trove puzzles, putting one of these puzzles together was a markedly different experience—the pieces are dropped into place rather than being pressed into place like today’s mass-produced cardboard puzzles. The experience is unlike any other, providing a rewarding *click* with each placed piece.
Beautifully displayed in our Glass Apothecary Jars, at home on a coffee table or bookshelf to entice everyone around to give it a try, in a canvas Pass-It-Along Pouch™ designed to pay the joy forward, or presented in our new Advent calendars: It's your choice. No matter their container, Trove is a keepsake and a gift best enjoyed time and time again.
Puzzle artisans of the Victorian era were known for designing representational shapes to intrigue their puzzlers. As a nod to the craftspeople in puzzle history, every Trove Puzzle contains what we call Treasure Pieces in intricately-cut shapes. Be on the lookout for the three nested Matryoshka shapes in the Nesting Dolls puzzle, the headphones in Mix Tapes, and the two-piece watering can in Vintage Botanicals.
Ever find yourself wanting to zoom in on the puzzle art to see it better? Our puzzles contain a printed art reference just like every puzzle on earth. But Trove allows you to also view the art in zoomable, digital awesomeness. Use the QR code to inspect the details on your phone or tablet as you're puzzling or share with family members at the puzzle table.
Each Trove puzzle shape is custom drawn by our designer, so watch for unexpected surprises like corner pieces that don't look like corner pieces, edge pieces you might miss when you do your initial edge-piece sort, and other treats. This isn't the standard 250-piece puzzle by far. You'll work for the reward of completion. As such, Trove puzzlers are further rewarded when they place the final piece: the Trove Crowning Achievement Puzzle Completion Pin, marking the finish line. (Can you stand to save it as the last piece?)
