@The NYC Toy fair 2008 I was pleasantly surprised to find Liberty Puzzles. Liberty Puzzles are classic wooden jigsaw puzzles, made with real maple-veneer plywood and archival paper and inks. Each puzzle image is mounted on quarter-inch plywood, and then laser-cut to all sorts of puzzle designs and shapes (the pieces are little gears, people, etc for example). They have a special coating that protects the art when it’s cut by a laser, this of course was interesting to me – it was good to talk about lasers with someone else who has a laser.

(Made in USA!).
