Since both materials are so malleable, 3D plastic and cardboard puzzles come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors. Therefore, the most popular models come in both materials. The latter is particularly true regarding 3D puzzles of famous buildings and landmarks, including the Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, the Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Empire State Building. Likewise, today 3D plastic and cardboard puzzles are sturdy and long-lasting. The quality of the materials used today is far superior to that used in earlier toys. Indeed, plastic and cardboard 3D puzzles do not lose their shape nor break with time.
Amongst the most popular 3D puzzles made of plastic and cardboard foam, we find models of TV shows, movies, and animated characters.

3D Cardboard Puzzles
A cardboard 3D puzzle is lighter than a plastic one but as resistant and sturdy. However, modern cardboard puzzles have come a long way from their old 2D counterparts. Technology has allowed for impossible shapes! We work with the best Chinese company in the field, CubicFun. The company has state of the art equipment and a prestigious team of designers, architects, and engineers. Since they use lasers, pieces fit smoothly and stay like that. No need for tools or glue.

Other Plastic Puzzles
Plastic jigsaw puzzles are a relatively new invention. The first 3D ones were produced by the end of the 1990s and were an instant hit. It was a love affair from the first sight. However, did you know that there’s an older and mega-famous 3D puzzle? We are talking about no other than the Rubik Cube from 1974. The entire planet has played with the invention of Hungarian Architect Rubik. Today, we have incredible models inspired by the Rubik Cube. Once you master the mechanisms and assemble one, you will want to get another one. These 3D plastic jigsaw puzzles are games that relax and clear the mind. Several studies have confirmed that building puzzles reduce stress.

Other Cardboard Puzzles
Cardboard jigsaw puzzles are the most popular. Most 2D puzzles are cardboard. However, the first puzzles in the world were wooden. A British geographer invented the puzzle in 1760. He created a 3D map of the world over a wooden board. Through the 20th century, cardboard puzzles conquered the world. Traditional puzzles gained traction during the Great Depression (1929 to 1934) because families stayed home playing for hours. Things have changed dramatically over the past decades and today’s 3D cardboard puzzles are in a league of their own. With technological advances came ever more complex and challenging models. What remains the same is the pleasure of assembling.
With over 100 years of experience, Ravensburger is committed to producing the best foam cardboard puzzles in the world. The award-receiving German company uses lasers to cut the pieces out of top quality cellulose fibers. That’s why every piece fits perfectly. With handmade punching tools, the company developed a technology called softclick, which guarantees sturdy models. In 2010, Ravensburger created the biggest puzzle in the world: the incredible Keith Haring: Double Retrospect with 32,256 pieces. Today, you can buy a smaller 1000 piece model. However, in 2016 Ravensburger did it again and created the current’s largest puzzle. We are talking about a massive Disney Mickey Mouse puzzle with 40320 pieces.
