Are you bored with playing those same old board games and apps? Tired of constantly “drawing four”, matching candies, and instantly knowing that it was Colonel Mustard in the hall with the candlestick?


That’s where Vidler’s 5 and 10 is here to help you! We’re here to introduce you to the wonder, classic, and timeless world of the Jigsaw Puzzle!


It’s not just a kid’s game anymore, but a great way to not only spend time with friends and family but also to create your very own amazing masterpiece! Puzzles come in several styles, colors, themes, and sizes for you to choose from, meaning there is always one that’s right for you!


Why are we suggesting Jigsaw Puzzles you ask? Well, not only is it a classic American pastime, but it is the perfect way to bring friends and family together to reconnect and meet new people!


Of course you could also put one together by yourself too. Spend a night of Netflix and chill– with your puzzle by binge watching (or listening) your way to completion!


With all those fancy schmancy challenges going around on TikTok, YouTube, and Facebook, why not take the Vidler’s Puzzle Challenge? The only rule is to complete your very first puzzle… and then come back for more!


We know what you’re thinking though…. How long does a puzzle take?


It honestly depends on the size of the puzzle you choose. Common puzzles range anywhere from 100-500 pieces, with bigger ones up to 1,000+ pieces, and with the largest available being 42,000 pieces. (Which is a bit too much if you ask us!)


For safety of our sanity and yours, we’re going to stay in the 100-2,000 piece range for our post.


Keeping in mind your puzzle-assembling skills, for 500 pieces the jigsaw puzzle time to complete would be about an hour or two. If you’re super familiar with your chosen theme, you may be able to get it pieced together quicker than that.


What if you decide to do what so many others have done and “go big or go home”? Exactly how long does it take to do a 2,000 piece puzzle?


Again, depending on your skillset, it could take upwards of 15-20 hours to complete a larger scale puzzle. If you’re like us though, you’d want to start small and work your way up. Our brain is already going into overdrive worrying about how to keep track of all those tiny pieces!


What to do after it’s all together though? Believe it or not you can turn it into a work of art! Easily create your newest art piece by sealing your creation together with puzzle glue! Keep it for yourself or gift it to your nearest neighbor… then start the whole process over again!


At Vidler’s 5 and 10, you’ll be able to find one of the largest and unforgettable puzzle selections  anywhere! Our friendly staff would love to help you confidently pick out the perfect puzzle for you. We’ve got everything from your favorite animals to that TV show you’re totally obsessing about right now!


Don’t forget to check out the rest of Vidler’s too! With 74,999 items to choose from (some of which are still .05 and .10 cents) you’re sure to find all the supplies you need for your puzzle-piecing adventures!
