Kodak Is Selling The World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle

With the world slowing down in self isolation, many of us are turning to the activities that entertained us in childhood.

From classic board games to baking cakes and rediscovering our favourite TV shows, our pastimes have taken a definite turn for the old school.

So there's no better time to celebrate the fact that Kodak are selling the world's largest jigsaw puzzle.

To be clear, 'world's largest' translates to a whopping 51,300 pieces.

That equates to a mega 16.47 square metres and a hefty weight of 18.5 kilograms. Let's just hope you have a big living room.

Crikey, that'll keep the kids quiet. And when we say 'kids', we definitely mean 'us'.

Once assembled, the puzzle gives a colourful portrayal of the '27 Wonders of the World' - so puzzle fans will get a spot of armchair travel for their money, too.

Those wonders include the Chureito Pagoda in Japan, The Great Wall of China, Canada's Niagara Falls and St. Basil's Cathedral in Russia.

Heads up, living your best puzzle life doesn't come cheap. This jigsaw giant will set you back an eye-watering $500 (£400).

Talking about the puzzle's photo composition, Kodak said: "Each photo was initially taken by a professional photographer, then digitally enhanced and printed in high quality."

Unfortunately, Team Tyla haven't been able to locate a UK stockist for the puzzle, but luckily Puzzle Warehouse - which is based in the US - does ship internationally.

Puzzle Warehouse says: "These are the brightest, richest, most colourful puzzles yet from Kodak, known for the highest quality imagery and brilliant photography.

"Each of the 27 individual puzzles are bagged separately. Box includes a large reference poster, information about each location and helpful instructions and tips.

"Perfect for a group/family project or the ultimate gift for the wanderlust traveller in your life."

Elsewhere in the world of mind-boggling puzzles, this entirely gold jigsaw might just be the single most frustrating thing to come out of self-isolation so far.

The 252-piece puzzle sold on Zazzle is completely metallic gold. That's it. There's no other way to describe it. One colour. There's no pretty picture at the end. No reward for all you hard work. Just a big gold abyss.

And that's what makes it so, SO hard to complete.

Unlike regular puzzles, you're going purely off the shape of the piece alone, meaning this one is bound to be extra brainteasing.

But while there might be moments when you want to pull your hair out or throw the whole thing in the bin in a fit of rage - just think of the satisfaction when you do complete it.

Happy jigsaw-ing, puzzleheads.
