1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzles

500 Piece Puzzles

A 500 piece puzzle is roughly half the size of an 1000 piece puzzle, the pieces are usually the same size on each piece size. The puzzle is much smaller, making it more manageable for beginners or those without lots of puzzling space (we also have plenty of Jigsaw Puzzle accessories to help those with a lack of space)!
