You have always been an enthusiastic puzzler and tinkerer? Now you are looking for new challenges or just an exciting hobby? How about 3D puzzles? They take the good old jigsaw puzzle to whole new levels.
Because once they are completed, they result in a three-dimensional figure that can be marveled at from all sides. You decide for yourself whether you want to puzzle together animals, vehicles, landmarks or other motifs. Some of the three-dimensional models are even illuminated. Others inspire with a sophisticated mechanism that makes it possible to move them and play with them.

These are the advantages of jigsaw puzzles
Quite apart from their appealing appearance, 3D puzzles can convince with a whole host of great properties just like conventional puzzles. Above all, they have a positive effect on the brain.
This is quite a challenge. Both sides of the brain are active when doing a puzzle. At the same time, the activity can put you in a good mood and even make you really happy. Even if you can't finish the puzzle in one sitting, you'll still achieve partial successes every time, which will keep you going.
In addition, puzzles have a relaxing effect. It is an almost meditative activity that makes you feel calm. It can even lower your blood pressure and heart rate. That's why so many people do puzzles before going to bed.
What makes three-dimensional puzzles so special
In contrast to conventional puzzles, however, 3D puzzles inspire with many other advantages. Due to their three-dimensional nature, they train motor skills even better. At the same time, they promote spatial thinking. Visual perception is also strengthened. In addition, when you have completed the puzzle, you get a visually appealing sculpture that you can use as a home accessory.
Depending on the motif, the finished puzzle can be used as a decoration for the living room, the study or the bedroom. Illuminated models can also create a wonderful lighting atmosphere. Tinkering with a three-dimensional puzzle not only improves many skills, it also gives you an impressive result that you can be really proud of!
What you should look for when buying
To ensure that you really enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, you should consider a few criteria when buying. These include, for example, the following factors:
- The material
- The level of difficulty
- The motif
The right material for your 3D puzzle
There is now a wide range of 3D puzzles on the market. They can be made of different materials such as plastic or cardboard. But of course we recommend that you choose 3D puzzles made of wood ;).
The natural material is sustainable, feels pleasant on the skin and contributes to healthy living. Wood is breathable and antibacterial. Furthermore, it inspires with a high stability and a timeless look, so that the finished wooden puzzle can be integrated into almost any interior design.
Finding the right level of difficulty
If the puzzle is too difficult for you, you may lose interest and give up in frustration. If it's too easy, you may not feel sufficiently challenged, so you won't enjoy the hobby.
That's why it's all the more important to find a three-dimensional puzzle with the right level of difficulty. But that's not so easy. After all, it depends on many different factors. One of the most important is age.
3D puzzles are certainly suitable for children. If you are planning to buy a model for your offspring, then make sure you pay attention to the age specifications. But there are also big differences in the complexity of 3D puzzles for adults.
Basically, you can assume that the puzzle tends to become more difficult the more pieces it has. The construction time given by the manufacturer also gives an indication of the degree of difficulty. If you are a complete beginner and have no experience with 3D puzzles, it is best to first choose a model with 100 to 200 pieces that takes about three to four hours to build.
Good 3D puzzles to start with are, for example:
With time, you can choose more and more complicated puzzles. You will quickly notice that you get better with practice.
A few difficult 3D puzzles are, for example:
The right motif for every taste
Of course, how much fun you have doing the puzzle also depends on the motif you choose. If you're not the least bit interested in technology, you probably won't enjoy assembling a robot or a steam engine. But if you are a real dinosaur fan, then one of the prehistoric creatures could be just the right choice for you. You can also choose from many other 3D puzzles with animals as motifs.

Modern 3D Puzzle
Our modern three-dimensional puzzles are divided into the categories ships, vehicles, animals and buildings and landmarks.

The assortment ranges from cruise ships to research vessels to airships.
Mechanical wooden models
Some models from our online shop can also be used for playing after completion. These puzzles inspire with integrated mechanisms that enable movement, for example. Among other things, you can find strong dinosaur robots that you can control with a remote control after completion. Some of them are even sound-controlled and make noises. Our mechanical music boxes are almost magically beautiful.
They are even available to match the season. You can order a Christmas music box from us. Once assembled, it serves as an atmospheric decoration in the living area every year. The marble runs that you can assemble yourself are also a real highlight. Numerous toggle elements, small wheels and switches make it possible to let one or more marbles run through the tracks at the end.
The miniature houses from our shop inspire with a visible devotion to tiny details. They are almost small building kits that you assemble with the help of tweezers, arrows and glue. Look forward to colourful garden houses, cosy cafés or top modern loft flats.

Illuminated wooden puzzle
Atmospherically illuminated wooden puzzles are a real enrichment for every interior. They provide an indirect and very cosy light. In addition, the lighting sets the scene for the puzzle even better.
