The jigsaw puzzle dates back to the 18th century. The first examples of the jigsaw puzzle were created by cutting the painted wood into shaped pieces. And it was named after the tool used to cut it. The jigsaw puzzle, the first commercial examples of which are thought to have been introduced around 1760, has become an indispensable part of our lives since then.
The number of pieces can be described as its most important feature. The number of pieces and the pictures and drawings on it vary according to which age group it appeals to. There are variants for young children, consisting of several pieces and decorated with cartoon characters. As the target age group grows, the number of pieces increases, and as a result, the intended image becomes more complex.
