The Puzzled One - Where memories take shape piece by piece

My name is Jeannette Aragon and The PUZZLED One – Handcrafted Wooden Puzzles and Toys is my creation. I am a self-taught puzzle maker. Over the past seven years I have learned so much about the craft of making wooden puzzles. It’s really brought out the creative side in me as well. I am constantly finding inspiration for new puzzles all around me I’m constantly adding new puzzles to my store so my site will always be evolving. Stop by often to see what's new!

As a former preschool teacher of 16 years, I was always inventing and creating new learning materials and activities for the children in my class. I really wanted to encourage a love of learning so I was always looking for unique ways to engage children in fun activities that would stimulate their mind and body. I think that is where my love of making toys began. So understandably the majority of my puzzles are designed for children. But many adults enjoy puzzles as well so now I design toys for all ages from child to adult.

I am a company of one. I do everything from manufacturing, selling and all business matters. I do it all from my small one bedroom apartment. As you can see in the pictures above my workshop has taken over my whole living room. I have three cutting stations, an sanding and drilling station, another sanding station, a painting station, and my computer station. I do cutting and sanding during the day then I do painting and all business matters at night.

I pride myself in making creatively designed, durably made, heirloom quality, 100% handcrafted wooden puzzles and toys. All my puzzles are made in the USA. My puzzles have been used in a wide variety of educational environments. Child development centers, Waldorf Inspired schools, Montessori schools, and home schooling environments have all enjoyed using my puzzles as part of their curriculum.

At The Puzzled One you can shop with confidence knowing that:
* The puzzles and toys are heirloom quality, designed to become treasures that will last from generation to generation.
* Every puzzle or toy has been skillfully handcrafted from the highest quality wood.
* Each puzzle or toy has been hand painted using non-toxic water based paints, stains, and finishes.
* All puzzles and toys have been inspected for safety and durability.
* You are covered by my No Questions, No Hassles, No Risk, Satisfaction Guarantee! Any merchandise purchased from The Puzzled One may be returned for a full refund of purchase price not including shipping costs within thirty days of the original invoice date!
* You will enjoy safe and easy shopping experience. All on-line transactions are handled securely through PayPal, the leader for on-line financial services which comes with the added bonus of their buyer protection program Or Direct checkout through Etsy .com which is just as reliable and secure.

I also have another shop PuzzledOne where I sell my handcrafted wedding guest book puzzles.These puzzles are a unique alternative to the traditional wedding guest book. The idea is each guest signs a piece of the puzzle and leaves a short message and then the couple has a cherished memento of their special day that they can put together and read all of the wonderful sentiments left by their guests. They come in various sizes and with or without a tray frame for hanging. They come unfinished or custom painted as well. I have 20pc., 30pc., 40 pc, 50pc., 60 pc, pc., 75 pc., 100 pc and 120 pc puzzles. I also make a 3d guest book tree which is great for weddings or family reunions. They make great family trees. These come in 30 pc. or 50 pc puzzles. Or I can custom make you any amount of pieces 50 and under.

BULK ORDER DISCOUNTS
I offer discount pricing when requested. Typically I request that you purchase 20 or more puzzles total ( they can be different types so long as there are 20) in order to receive my special rates. I also may accept orders with less than twenty puzzles but the prices are slightly higher but still discounted off my retail prices. I do not mass produce my puzzles. My puzzles are 100 % handmade. I cut each one out on a scroll saw piece by piece. Then I sand them smooth and then paint each piece by hand. My puzzles are heirloom quality. They are designed and made to last generation to generation ( with proper care and supervision that is). I don't skimp when it comes to my materials. Most of my puzzles are made from poplar hardwood ( a strong dense wood that does not splinter with normal wear and tear) My wood burned jigsaw puzzles are made from top of the line Baltic Birch hardwood plywood. I only use non toxic water based, acrylic paint and stains unless otherwise noted. All of the puzzles are sealed with your choice of two non toxic finishes. (see above for details). I try to make my puzzles affordable. Because I keep my prices low already you will note that my wholesale prices are discounted from my normal retail but they are not as low as you might find with other wholesalers. But as I described earlier my puzzles are far superior to most mass produced wholesale puzzles. My discounted prices are determined by the cost of materials and a small amount for my time and effort. If you give me your email address I would be happy to send you my excel file with all the information on my puzzles including my pricing.
