Home Entertainment By eeBoo Piece & Love Taps Artists To Imagine Topics From Mysteries Of Space, To Dog Breeds, To Bustling Rome, To Birds In The Park
New York, NY (January 11, 2022) – The childhood bliss of connecting those last pieces of a puzzle had a resurgence across generations in 2020 and 2021. eeBoo Piece & Love, makers of 100- to 1000- piece puzzles that are thoughtfully commissioned using sustainable materials, had a front row view to how important at-your-own-pace home entertainment could be. Visitors to their New York Toy Fair Booth 6411 will be the first to see the 2022 Piece & Love Collection of beautifully designed adult puzzles that offer a screen free, relaxing way to practice contemplative mindfulness alone or with friends and family.
Original artwork has been commissioned for topics ranging from astronomy and pups to the cities of Rome and Miami. The woman-owned, mother-run lifestyle brand once again puts the spotlight on women with its Bookstore Astronomers 500-piece puzzle ($21.99). The 23 x 23-inch finished puzzle, a new format for the company, asks the question is the universe an open book to those of us who care to look? The very vast, the very small, we want to understand it all. The brilliant original artwork shows three inquisitive women in a bookstore surrounded by overstuffed bookshelves, images of earth’s foliage, and the mysteries of our solar system and beyond.
The upcoming collection, available in Spring 2022, will also feature the 500-piece Dogs Of The World ($21.99), overflowing with 20 different dog breeds from all over the globe. Woof! Consider scooping out a bowl of gelato before sitting down to the 1000-piece Rome ($21.99). Every must-see tourist site is pictured plus a few surprise ones!
The 1000-piece Birds in the Park ($21.99) captures a moment when city dwellers can hear the birds chirp from the trees above and around them. A warm bright vacation scene awaits those that put together the 1000-piece Miami ($21.99) which rounds out the Top 5 new puzzles recommended by eeBoo Piece & Love curators. With each of these charmingly illustrated scenes, the rewards of a screen free, immerse-yourself activity begin the moment one opens the box and spreads out the sturdy jigsaw pieces.
eeBoo Piece & Love was one of the first puzzle makers to focus on adult puzzles with a nod to Mother Nature. Since 2017 their high-quality jigsaw puzzle for adults and families boast glossy, sturdy pieces with minimal puzzle dust. Every boxed puzzle is created with recycled materials, FSC®-certified paper, and printed with vegetable-based inks.
