DANVERS, Mass., Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pastime Puzzles™ is an exceptional line of jigsaw puzzles for the specialty toy and game market by Winning Moves Games. Each 300, 500 and 1000 piece puzzle includes special, unique shaped pieces, called whimsies - birds, animals, objects and symbols. Sorting the pieces to find the wonderful whimsies becomes part of the fun! Additionally, no two pieces are the same. This clever element adds a whole new layer of complexity for puzzlers to solve.
The Pastime Puzzles line is comprised of paintings from top artists. The pieces are of superior quality with a distinct thickness. They join together with a clean snap as they are placed. As well, the package is constructed of sturdy cardboard allowing puzzlers to stand the box on its side as a guide while solving – and there are no distracting elements covering up the image. Finished Pastime Puzzles are sized to fit into standard picture frames.
The experience doesn't stop there. Inside each package is a special secret code that might be a winner! Puzzlers can enter the code on the pastime-puzzles.com website for a chance to win a special, hand-cut, wooden Pastime Puzzle! The retailer that sold the winning puzzle will also receive a special, hand-cut, wooden Pastime Puzzle. A winner will be drawn every month.
The true jigsaw puzzle historian may recognize the Pastime Puzzles name. From 1908 to 1958, whenever jigsaw fans wanted a top of the line puzzle, they bought Pastime Puzzles by Parker Brothers of Salem, Massachusetts. The skilled and creative women who cut these wooden masterpieces, using real jig-saws, designed each and every piece by hand. Pastimes were the favorite puzzles of kings, presidents, and celebrities.
